Business Analysis Practices Facilitate Data Conversion Project for Major Financial Institution

Summary

As a result of a major Financial Institution’s acquisition, their PMO needed to convert from Broadridge MBS to Thomson Reuter’s BETA system and improve their processes for integrating new employees. Within this environment, it was necessary to migrate client information and assets to the new BETA system, integrate the information with downstream applications, and provide field training and operation readiness to new branch representatives. Through PCG’s proven Business Analysis practice, PCG team members worked through five SDLC phases to carry out the data conversion project and equip the newly integrated environment with the necessary processes to facilitate an efficient acquisition.

Between analysis, design, testing, implementation and maintenance, PCG successfully scoped, planned, carried-out and secured the client’s data conversion project. PCG gathered requirements, analyzed process change controls and highlighted opportunities in its gap analysis. Then after engaging senior management, PCG acted upon its research, preparation and vision to help this Financial Institution through an acquisition.
