BIS - Monitoring, Analysis and Evaluation of the IT strategy
“The Fujitsu-led team brought creativity and insight to our specific business challenges and now our work in Business Support will remain valuable and sustainable.”
Fields Wicker-Murin – Chair Investment Committee, Department for Business, Innovation and Skills
The Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS), formerly the Department of Trade & Industry (DTI), works with businesses to drive up UK productivity and competitiveness.
The Department found that over time more than 200 schemes had been created. Research showed that this assortment of schemes and their associated brand names was confusing UK businesses and that a greater focus on economic rationale and a more corporate approach to performance management were needed.
Fujitsu, the prime contractor for BIS's IT Services, worked closely with the Department to develop a strategy and IT solution that would change the way business support operated. Monitoring, Analysis and Evaluation became the team's mantra and a key approach to the overall business transformation.
