At DHL, Wordfair provided project management and business analysis services to two projects within the Oracle Financial Migration programme.
DHL, a global market leader in the international express and logistics industry, were creating a common Oracle based platform for their UK financial systems, following their acquisition of the Securicor UK Distribution business.
The services provided by Wordfair were:
(1) project management with two third party companies to scope and specify upgrade work for Oracle Financial Analyzer and Business Objects applications, agreeing commercials and subsequently managing their development work through to successful user acceptance test, as part of a tight overall project implementation schedule
(2) business requirements analysis to define a replacement strategy for a number of existing HOLOS management information systems which had become obsolete with the implementation of the new Oracle financials system
On successful completion of the assignment, the programme manager said, "With little or no guidance in terms of a user requirement, a complex technical environment and a pressing deadline, Keith was able to develop a roadmap for implementation that had the buy in from all key stakeholders. Keith's calm and measured approach inspires confidence in his customers and colleagues, and is ideally suited to roles where complex matrix management is required."
The project was managed using Prince 2 methodology.
