Migrating legacy-based IT systems to the cloud

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) had partnered with a FTSE 100 listed Systems Integration supplier (SI) to run the FCO’s technology overhaul programme. Their role was to provide a turn-key solution and expert resource to migrate legacy-based IT systems to the cloud.

An inability to provide appropriate resources quickly enough had left the programme behind on both time and budget and in danger of not meeting the objectives of reducing costs and modernising and the IT estate. Methods delivered consultancy services across three work packages with agreed outcomes. The service was underpinned by a stringent governance process to ensure that the overall service and individual work packages met agreed KPIs and quality standards.
