Network Rail – Oracle Portfolio Programme Management (OPPM)


Network Rail’s Group Business Services wanted to have an effective way of managing the IT projects.  This original requirement was developed and it became apparent that an enhanced system was required, in order to manage the investment decisions over the five year process of any Control Period.


The Prōject Team developed a system  that replaced a clunky, cumbersome spreadsheet with a tool specifically designed for portfolio planning.  This was designed as a proof of concept within the Model Office to demonstrate how the spreadsheet could be replaced.

The outcome was a system that facilitated decision making, enabling the right decision to be made.
