CloudStream were engaged by a leading investment bank to provide resource for a critical regulatory compliance programme spanning 53 countries and involving various laws, regulations and regulatory guidance from the United Kingdom, the European Union, Hong Kong and the United States of America.
Our client was given 18 months to meet the global regulatory standards or face fines and possibly suspension of trading licences.
Utilising our service management skills and support network, we streamlined the resourcing lifecycle, introducing more efficient methodologies and processes which provided the necessary velocity the programme required. In addition, we also implemented quality control on resources to ensure that our consultants matched the skill requirements and culture.
We built a team in a short period of time that consisted of scrum masters, programme managers, developers, business analysts and testers all coming from an investment banking background with experience of operating in a regulatory environment.
This project was instrumental in helping to push through Agile working methodologies and later played a critical role in educating and coaching the workforce in DevOps practices.
