Example 5: Core Banking System Implementation Review
When a new IT management took over at a leading Czech retail bank, it wanted an external opinion on the on-going implementation project for a new core banking system in order to provide a sound basis for its further management decisions.
After evaluating several potential service providers the bank asked G&C to perform a project review and state its opinion on different options to continue the project.
G&C’s managing partner, together with a Technical Architect and a Business Analyst performed and delivered the review in a short period of time to the satisfaction of the client.
