BJSS Highlights Five Essentials for ‘No Surprises End-game’ Project Delivery

BJSS, Inc., a rapidly growing UK-based IT consultancy firm, is now serving the U.S. market, bringing relief to businesses hampered by the most common problems that impede operational resiliency and project delivery.

BJSS has witnessed significant transformation in its 20 years of serving the world’s leading financial institutions and multi-national corporations. Numerous high-stakes customer engagements have proven to BJSS that delivering results boils down to combatting common project delivery challenges by adhering to a “No Surprises End-game” mentality – in other words, say what you’ll do, do what you say and be transparent.

Mark Hipperson, president, BJSS Inc., said, “Twenty years ago when BJSS started, capital market firms and financial institutions held their operations close to their chest and consumers and regulators didn’t question those operations. Today, financial services businesses know all too well that we are in an era where increased regulations and complexity hit the bottom line. The competitive advantage goes to the firm that can resolve business issues quickly, with small efficient teams.”

With its extensive experience of successful project delivery, BJSS has developed the following five essentials of a “No Surprises End-game”:

        1.   Gain continual assurance of the developing solution throughout the delivery lifecycle through good project governance and strong engineering and management practices
2. Focus on early eradication of risk and continued on-going risk management
3. Use a practical and flexible approach based on real world experience
4. Maintain necessary and sufficient formality in project organization and business engagement
5. Promote transparency through the use of metrics

Larry Ryan, chief technology officer, said, “A good process is important, but not sufficient to gain success. You need skilled and experienced subject matter experts and IT delivery people. At BJSS, we have nearly 400 highly capable professionals who have been trusted to work side-by-side with our client internal teams, offering consulting, staff augmentation and project/solution leadership for the most complex business issues. Sometimes we’re like the ‘Hail Mary’ team that comes in when other approaches have failed.”

BJSS’ New York City office is located at 140 Broadway. Current activities include work for the financial services industry, providing expertise in regulatory compliance, foreign exchange (FX), trading systems and full software lifecycle development/testing.
