About Technology Vendor Programme
Technology is embarking on a programme to transform the way Barclays manages its Technology Vendors (stock & flow) in order to drive transparency, simplification, consistency, and realisation of benefits
The objectives are as follows:
Enhance the way we operate (processes, data, tools, MI and people) across all relevant stakeholders to provide the right level of transparency and optimise vendor management
Identify new opportunities to simplify technology estate, reduce complexity and vendor spend that are currently not factored in any strategies/plans
Quantify and track expected benefits to better inform the prioritisation of retirement of applications/infrastructure as well as vendor contract reviews and commit to tangible savings to contribute to the overall Technology 2019 and 2020 financial targets
Deliver against agreed plans to decommission products (both infra and applications) and optimize vendor contracts, in line with agreed priorities and commitments made via the CTO strategy and TC Roadmaps in order to simplify the technology environment and reduce operational risk
