Resulting define roadmap for Nationwide's SAP Banking Development Centre

About Nationwide

Nationwide Building Society is the largest mutual financial institution in the world. Nationwide provides financial services through 700 branches and direct channels with products spanning mortgages, loans and savings as well as personal banking products including loans, credit cards, bank accounts and insurance products. With assets of £200 billion, Nationwide is a major force in the UK Financial Services sector.

Nationwide's Challenge

Trailblazing brings high risks. But financial services companies aren’t renowned risk takers. So when Nationwide Building Society decided to implement SAP Core Banking - the first UK bank to do so - they had to be sure that their new systems could be supported at the same time as delivering the pace of change required to support their high stakes business case. Having never run SAP previously and with scarce SAP Banking resource in the UK, Nationwide and their incumbent systems integrator approached Resulting to provide independent advisory services on the design of a new SAP Banking Development Centre.

Resulting Solution

Using proven SAP CoE Accelerators, Resulting designed an SAP Development Centre Target Operating Model for Nationwide in just 3 months. The project involved complex stakeholder management working alongside Nationwide's broader IT transformation initiatives.

Benefits Delivered

Following the successful design phase, Resulting worked with the Nationwide team to mobilise the Banking Development Centre and ensure readiness for the delivery of the first post go-live programmes.

  • Accelerated SAP Target Operating Model - enabling Nationwide to plan for go-live
  • Identification of critical capabilities required to underpin the SAP business case
  • Independent advisory working alongside a number of incumbent SIs and internal teams
  • Consistency and integration with ongoing IT transformation work - including re-usable models for the broader transformation
