> Because of major and rapid changes to the regulatory environment and a need to modernise its IT estate, ELEXON decided to rebuild its operational processes, IT systems and organisation.
> A fast-changing regulatory system needs a cloud-based solution with a quick moving change system. This is so that ELEXON can change a single piece of the system without, for example, having to re-test the whole system.
> The board decided that an external evaluation of the programme would add value.
How we helped
> Our multi-skilled team of consultants performed regular assurance of the programme’s:
The team also reviewed:
DMW brought in several experts to provide the necessary assurance across a range of specialist subjects. ELEXON stated that the number of experts and the depth of their expertise was a major factor in winning the work and to the success of our role.
> DMW reviewed key outputs (including programme documents, plans, architecture and code) and interviewed programme staff (both client and supplier) to identify any concerns with the approach.
> Based on these inputs we provided audit reports containing pragmatic observations and recommendations that were discussed with the programme leadership and vendors before they were presented to the ELEXON Board.
> These helped set the mission-critical digital transformation programme on the road to success.
