16 October 2009: BJSS has successfully delivered Release 1 of a major middle office and STP transformation programme for a global oil trading organisation.

This represents the first release of a 3-year transformation programme to provide STP, real-time reporting capability and a single pricing solution across the client’s global trading landscape. Using BJSS’s Enterprise Agile approach, the delivery team combined the benefits of Agile and iterative techniques with the client’s more traditional Waterfall delivery method. This allowed the client to evolve “to-be” business organisation and process in parallel with a strict delivery schedule for the solution, maximising productivity and efficiency of their critical business and analyst resource.

The release was successfully delivered by BJSS to schedule, allowing the programme to secure the level of executive sponsorship needed to support subsequent releases and a significant business change initiative over the next two years.
