Global financial services technology company divests its product suite to improve efficiency and drive business growth
GBST engaged Protiviti to support the divesture of part of its product suite. The engagement required the segregation and separation of shared products and infrastructure, including separation and migration of on-premise and AWS and Microsoft cloud-based infrastructure and applications.
In a 3-month planning phase, Protiviti’s engineers worked with the GBST engineering team and identified the infrastructure and applications to be migrated, the ownership of each component, any major milestones to be met, dependencies between components and effort required. This information was used to develop an approach and timeline for the separation.
Planned separation activities were delivered over a 9 months period. The delivery plan was managed alongside a number of senior stakeholders (including external stakeholders) and adjusted throughout execution to manage budgets, priority and resource overutilisation. Protiviti managed the project delivery activities, timelines, risk and issues identification and mitigation, successfully adapting to changing requirements from all stakeholders. Throughout the project, Protiviti provided a variety of technical and business-based expertise to set both companies up for the long run, building tools, methodologies and process documents to improve efficiencies, and supported BAU activities where possible.
