Microsoft Gold Partner and leading digital transformation consultancy Storm ID has been appointed Agile Microsoft Power Platform Specialist Partner to the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS).
The department was seeking a supplier to deliver enhancements and integration work to their existing portfolio delivery and reporting tools across the BEIS Delivery Transformation Programme estate – predominantly in Power Platform / Power BI. The BEIS Digital Solutions programme is a body of work looking at integrating the end-to-end digital journey for BEIS Project stakeholders at a project, portfolio, and SRO level.
Storm ID will be working with BEIS to iterate user requirements based on input from BEIS users and experts. Activities will include delivery of existing projects as well as technical discoveries and delivery of future enhancements to improve the end-to-end user experience. Storm ID Business Analysts, Microsoft 365 Developers, Technical Consultants, Data Engineers, QA Testers, Communications and Delivery Managers, amongst others, will be working across a number of integrated workstreams within the Digital Solutions team supporting the BEIS Digital Transformation Programme over the next two years.
The digital project capabilities of BEIS have grown organically over many years with a variety of tools and platforms being developed and utilised as needs manifest and change. BEIS manages a significant number of projects and programmes across its mission and priorities, so increasing management consistency will support its delivery aims.
The Digital Solutions Programme seeks to address all of these challenges by creating a new baseline service, utilising a mixture of existing (Microsoft Power Platform, Microsoft Power BI, PPPM Tool and BEIS’ own Online Reporting Tools) and new tools as required, integrating them around the core Project/Programme user journeys.
BEIS is seeking the best delivery tools and processes and the Digital Transformation Programme contributes to this ambition.
Linsey Lydon, Client Services Director at Storm ID said:
We are delighted to be working as a specialist partner to BEIS and have high hopes for achieving significant output over the two-year contract. We look forward to supporting BEIS both in their short-term project delivery and longer-term strategic goals, demonstrating quick progress in agile delivery and Power Platform expertise delivered with buckets of enthusiasm.
Murray Harper, Deputy Director, Implementation and Delivery Directorate said:
BEIS is at an important phase of our delivery transformation and Storm ID is a significant and welcome partner in helping us achieve our strategic objectives.
