INTRODUCING NEW FRAMEWORKS FOR BUSINESS READINESS AND PROJECT DELIVERY
ELIMINATING OPERATIONAL RISK THROUGH SYSTEM UPGRADE

All applications were remediated through replacement, removal or upgrades. NT4 was completely eradicated from the estate with the regulatory body satisfied that all risks associated with NT4 have been mitigated.
With a major transformation programme underway, gaining the
right approach to business engagement and project delivery
