Summary

The Group CIO of a large multi-national bank asked Xceed Group to provide guidance and direction on a major migration and transformation programme within one of its Core Global Business Divisions.

Xceed Group was requested to support the delivery of the programme and specific areas including UAT, End User Computing, Reporting, Warranty, supporting Training and managing the business sign off process.

After having missed previous implementation dates, the Xceed Group team joined and both initial European sites went live on the revised implementation date.

I write to congratulate you on the successful system conversion. Please pass my thanks to our colleagues who have worked very long hours over many weeks to get this over the line. A great outcome with credit to many; all of whom I thank. Well done.”

The programme struggled for nearly two years and missed two implementation dates before Xceed Group joined the team. Six months later, both sites went live.
