Sarah Baskerville, Head of BI Systems, Department for Transport

The Department for Transport (DfT) is responsible for providing policy, guidance and funding to local authorities in the UK to help them run and maintain their road networks, improve passenger and freight travel, and develop new major transport schemes. Additionally the department works to maintain high standards of safety and security in transport and also to make our roads less congested and polluted by promoting lower carbon transport, including cycling and walking.
The Department works with 19 agencies, trading funds and central government bodies to support the transport network that undeniably links UK’s businesses and gets people and goods travelling around the country.

Keeping the UK on the move with SAP BPC, Keeping SAP BPC on the go with itelligence AMS

Mastering the New Reality of Finance

Integrated and accelerated planning and consolidation with SAP BPC

About the Project

The DfT were aware of the capability of SAP BPC following a small deployment within one of their operating divisions and undertook a business case review to see if an enterprise wide deployment of SAP BPC would meet with public sector best value criteria. Following this economic test, the Department undertook to deploy SAP BPC and built an in-house team to effectively use the solution. It was apparent that specialised skills were missing from the team and the Department turned to itelligence to assist. itelligence reviewed SAP BPC against business requirements and introduced SAP BPC expertise to the in-house team to help train and upskill DfT staff to effectively run SAP BPC.

Sarah Baskerville, Head of BI Systems, DfT commented “itelligence was able to give us access to specialist SAP BPC resources when we needed them. This has allowed the Department to spend more time enhancing and optimising rather than simply administering the SAP BPC system.”

As a result, the DfT has been able to leverage their current SAP BPC architecture to provide a single version of the truth with consistent data inputs. With automated reporting through standard processes, DfT now produce monthly reporting across all relevant stakeholders (Board, DG Groups, Directors) for both Finance and HR. The Department now uses one solution, leveraging SAP BPC to support reporting and SAP BPC is now regarded as a business critical MI system.
