Region: United Kingdom
Client challenge: Horizon wanted to transform its IT capacity and capabilities, ensure successful delivery of new, ground-breaking power stations, and provide a technology platform for long-term growth
Solution: Through its partnership with Capgemini, Horizon completed a digital transformation, that involved strategic consultancy, collaborative team building, and implementation of diverse IT solutions and services, featuring cloud and hybrid environments
Results: A robust, secure and agile technology platform delivering short-term performance and productivity improvements, and a long-term engine for growth and prosperity
After establishing itself as an important new player in only 10 years, Horizon required rapid growth of its corporate and operational infrastructure to achieve the critical mass essential to operate successfully on the national and international stage.
Following its acquisition by Hitachi and the subsequent detailed development of its plans for ground-breaking new power stations in England and Wales, Horizon decided that it needed to transform the scope and scale of its IT capacity and capabilities. By doing so, the organisation intended to deliver better, faster, and more reliable data that possessed more business-relevant information and insights to its business users. This was essential to handle the increasingly demanding requirements of its design and build programme in a challenging and fast-moving sector and to provide the agile and resilient technology platform that was essential for its own long-term growth and prosperity.
With multiple technology providers and solutions already in place and business continuity non-negotiable, Horizon knew that in order to make this change on an aggressive timeline, it would need a transformation partner that possessed global expertise in energy and utilities as well as a strong and proven culture of collaboration, teamwork, and mutual support.
