Lloyds Banking Group
Lloyds Banking Group is the UK’s largest Digital, Retail and Commercial Bank with a focus on Helping Britain Prosper. We’re on a mission to build the bank of the future, and we need your help do it! Continuing our extensive transformation programme, we’re redefining what a bank is from the inside out. Our technology, our culture, and our mind-set is changing to craft a true engineering-led organisation.
This is an exciting time for GCIO as we undergo a period of significant investment and transformation that will take the Bank forward into the era of Cloud Computing. An investment of such a scale will take several years to complete, during which time the existing IT estate, on which all Critical Business Processes rely, will continue to require management and support. A key activity is that of Currency Management, the process that helps the Bank ensure its IT systems operate on supported hardware and software and balance the focus of the investment portfolio between today and tomorrow.
