Our customer is a Global Trade and Risk Management company that provides Fintech services software covering retail, lending, treasury, capital markets, investment management and enterprise risk.
As result of Microsoft ceasing to support Windows XP, our client needed to migrate all of the workstations in all of their offices around the world to Windows7.
To achieve this, they were looking for a business partner who would ensure business continuity while implementing a software migration strategy and coordinating the upgrade of over 700 systems across 44 countries.
Our approach was based on delivering migration expertise and project management capabilities for managing software packaging projects on multiple locations.
The solution was delivered through a Project Based model. We provided a fast ramped up team coordinated by a project manager that would ensure a smooth transition of the client’s software stack while ensuring business continuity.
After a detailed analysis we established the migration strategy while developing the site roll-out plan, including risk assessment and setting milestones. The third phase of the project consisted of creating a migration Proof of Concept with focus on providing issue and status reports. The development phase was built around an iteration process for the next location.
Through our Project Based delivery model we ensured the clients’ business continuity while migrating over 700 PCs in 44 offices worldwide within 6 months, on time and on budget.See Delivery model
