  • Product Migration and Legacy System Retirement (PMLSR) is a Strategic Action that delivers against the ‘Extraordinary Impact and Benefit’ anchor. PMLSR will focus on migrating products from legacy systems to new, sustainable means of production, and retiring products and systems that are no longer needed.
  • A sub-project to PMLSR is Strategic Build and Migration (SBM) which aims to build the common technical capabilities required to meet the future product needs of the client (as defined by the product analysis project) and manage the migration of relevant products to those new capabilities.
  • Within the SBM project, Product and Commercial Suites (P&CS) have been identified as the first systems that will be decommissioned. This will only be after a solution (SKY) has been implemented and accepted, ensuring the continuation of service, for internal to the client, and external consumption.
  • The SKY workstream is currently in the Discovery phase but will start working to provide analysis of possible options that enable the organisation to make informed decisions on the retirement and replacement of P&CS, including indicative costs, resource requirements, timescales, and solution choice.



  • Support all procurement/contracting activities:
  • Detailing relevant architectural/technical constraints & requirements
  • Evaluating responses from external suppliers against our requirements
  • Support Discovery and Alpha phases of work in the capacity of technical architecture.
  • Input into Discovery shaping.
  • Input into Alpha testing associated to our biggest risks & assumptions.
  • Act as the interface for technical architecture between the MO and suppliers.
  • Providing guidance as to assurance of any designs.
  • Shaping the direction of the evolving Alpha phases to ensure solutions align with MO standards, policies and principles.
  • Work alongside suppliers to ensure quality documentation of any Alpha testing and PoC’s, including technical architecture.
  • Curate associated Design Packs and Architectural Decision Records (ADR’s).
  • Support any business case creation activity, in the capacity of a technical architect, for further investment in the development of Sky.
