National Grid: IT positioning to consume new technology
Categories: digital change
So what we're doing is really on two fronts. A large part of what we're investing in in IT is dealing with the legacy and integrating the legacy that we've had through many years of acquiring other utility businesses. So one side we're having to get that under control and consolidate it but the way we’re doing that, through our operating model is to run a much more sort of services driven organisation that allows us then to integrate increasingly things like cloud services, software as a service. So we're having at the same time to reposition the IT business to be able to allow ourselves to consume, effectively new technology.
