Programme Management of Data Centre Migration


Programme setup, governance and process design of a data centre migration and consolidation in Germany for one of the world’s largest and foremost integrated financial services organisations.


With a continual drive to obtain the best combination of profit and growth, but with a risk adverse business organisation, not desiring change. Stratiformis were asked to reinvigorate an IT service migration.


Stratiformis were already directly engaged to support another consulting project, which resulted in us being invited to support this programme. The Stratiformis solution encompassed stakeholder management to re-align the solution offering from the German data centre, developing a robust and repeatable migration process that helped to mitigate UK business concerns.


UK IT teams were given greater job opportunity by many of them being re-assigned to wider Group roles, reducing the number of people required to support the legacy UK IT silo. Leveraging pan-European procurement agreements and standardising platforms acted as a first step in reducing acquisition and operating costs. In many cases application services were optimised so they performed faster than when hosted locally in the UK.

This first phase of platform consolidation enabled the client to plan and prepare for a second stage of group wide application consolidation through a private cloud of generic insurance services.
