Fujitsu Supports On -Time Split of the FSA

Fujitsu UK & Ireland

London, November 27, 2013

The LCO Programme had a fixed target date of April 1 which was set by Parliament and delivered more than 100 individual projects, and migrated a total of 1,300 users to the PRA. Fujitsu’s role in this programme was to:

  • migrate 1,300 users (along with their emails and data) from the FSA to the PRA over a period of 3 months
  • manage the IT components of the relocation of 900 FSA users to a new building over a period of 3 months
  • re-brand FSA email and support the rebranding of a number of other FSA systems
  • put the infrastructure/mechanism in place so that PRA users could access 4 shared services hosted at the FCA
  • continue supporting end users at the PRA during the Programme to ensure they had a consistent user experience

“This was a complex and large-scale migration programme,” said Lee Ellis, LCO IS Transition Manager, FCA. “The successful continuation of operations at the FSA was imperative during the split. As a partner, Fujitsu consistently delivered on time, and on target. This culminated with the legal cutover weekend, between March 27 and 1 April, with Fujitsu supporting the delivery of more than 20 technical changes to ensure we met our go live date.”

“We have been working with the FCA since April 2007, and we knew it was essential to ensure a seamless split of the organisation,” commented Steve Prior, FCA Delivery Executive, UK & Ireland, Fujitsu. “For us, the key to a successful LCO programme was flexibility in our approach to the several streams of work taking place. As a service provider, we had to be agile enough and be able to react quickly to the incredibly fast changing environment, while ensuring the programme stayed on track and that the day-to-day running of the organisation was not affected. Twelve months and more than 100 successfully completed projects later, we are extremely proud that we were able to provide the two organisations with the support they needed during the split. LCO has been a great success for both the FSA and Fujitsu.”

The 1 April split of the FSA produced two new institutions: the FCA and the PRA, the latter being a subsidiary of the Bank of England. More information on the FCA can be found by visiting the FCA site.
