 Core Systems Modernization Practice


Continuous planning, execution excellence, strong governance, and robust change management are among the requirements for successful core modernization efforts. Core system transformation is a top priority within business today and is expected to remain so with the rapid pace of technology evolution. Multi-year initiatives are time consuming and risky, requiring significant investment, key organizational resources, and senior management commitment. Internal modernization efforts lead to mixed results; for every successful investment leading to better service, improved compliance, and greater efficiency, others are doomed by oversold systems, unrealistic expectations, and poor implementation processes. These core systems are operationally critical to your company's bottom line, and the risk of a transformation initiative going awry is not an option.

To help you meet your needs for cost containment, flexible new product design/rollout, speed to market, growth, improved customer engagement, streamlined business processes, increased service quality, and regulatory changes, GLI utilizes best of breed methodologies for implementing a core system transformation program. GLI's P3 Methodology is designed for the delivery of significant projects required for the replacement of critical core systems. Our methodology is comprised of the following areas: portfolio, program and project management. Our full-package service brings to your projects a complete governance, planning, execution and control and monitoring structure to deliver projects on time and on budget, which will fulfill your business requirement while achieving your business benefits.

Our offering is built around the following core pillars of process:

GLI assesses and develops leading practice for the operation of your PMO including portfolio, program and project management process frameworks. Organizations are challenged with the consistent application of defined project management processes, resource planning, forecasting, and other business demands. A well-managed Project Management Office (PMO) addresses these challenges ensuring successful project delivery.  We work with you to deploy a new PMO, operate a PMO, or optimize and enhance an existing PMO to meet evolving challenges, functions, and services while delivering critical modernization projects.

Our turnkey solution provides experienced Program/Project Managers who plan, organize and manage your project to execute the delivery of your corporate goals and program/project business case.

We ensure the review of all project and software development lifecycle documentation, systems, database interconnections, architectures, and processes turning around comprehensive analysis reports that note continual practical improvements that drive toward meeting project strategy and milestones. Additionally, we map and define your business process, determining your maximum operational efficiency and strategize a plan for improvement.

GLI's Project Health-Check assesses the health of your projects. We proactively identify projects at risk for delivering on-time and on-budget while fast tracking them back to health. It is performed throughout the project lifecycle and allows for "stage gated" or "milestone" decision points. It focuses on non-technical project risks, which include risks related to project governance, planning and technical deliverables. Stage gates are critical decision points within the project confirming the integrity and status of the project. Stage gate decisions define the continuation or termination of a project.
