Our progress
in transition

Learn about the work we have been doing since we published Blueprint One on 30 September 2019.

How we will
deliver Phase I

The technology workstream will follow a combination of Agile and traditional approaches across the workstreams. Agile delivery will be used in the design and build of core components (e.g. the shared data platform, APIs) where requirements will continue to evolve. A traditional approach will be used for workstreams with stable requirements (e.g. tax calculator, sanctions checks).

How technology will create value for stakeholders

  • Simpler process for uploading information
  • Access to a greater choice
    of products

Core technology components that will
be delivered to support
the workstream pilots

  • System-to-system integration for market participants (API gateway and APIs)
  • Security framework and standards needed for Phase I
  • Single Sign-On, to simplify the user experience while improving security
  • Test automation, providing improved quality assurance and enabling a faster pace of change
