Decoupling IT Systems
When engineering specialists Edwards was decoupling from its former parent company, BOC they asked Leading Resolutions to develop a strategy that would place them on a robust, stand-alone footing.
Edward’s entire ERP framework was run by BOC. Leading Resolutions recommended a strategy that involved a large scale tender to outsource technology hosting, eventually won by IBM. In addition two consultants from the Leading Resolutions team were assigned to actively manage the project.
The exercise was as much about people and processes as it was technology. Leading Resolutions demonstrated the necessary sensitivity to global requirements at all levels of the organisation to achieve business separation with zero business impact.
