  • 01 Overview

    Delta FS approached VDP to augment their in-house BA, development and testing capabilities by delivering sprint teams that could integrate with their existing teams and processes more rapidly than they would be able, should they recruit in themselves. Delta FS also needed a successful outcome for a high priority project, guaranteed.

  • 02 Challenges

    Delta FS have built a reputation within the market of never missing a deadline. However, having found themselves needing to make an increasing amount of system changes on their large and complex core product in order to meet forthcoming regulatory requirements, they needed to urgently increase their delivery velocity.

  • 03 Solution

    Placement over 6 months of 23 resources as 4x sprint teams, lead by a dedicated Success Manager.

  • 04 Outcome

    Sprint team 1 stood up within 10 days of VDP’s initial engagement with Delta FS and Sprint team 2 stood up within 2 weeks of request. The speed of VDP’s end to end onboarding onto Delta’s core platform and our ability to match the velocity of Delta’s existing teams within a short time frame has lead to VDP’s teams being charged with delivery of work streams on the critical path to meeting regulatory deadlines. Delta FS also chose VDP to stand-up third and fourth specialist Data Migration sprint teams to deliver for 3 x new platform clients as opposed to recruiting internally and VDP are now Delta’s go-to resource provider, with VDP’s Success Management being noted as a key factor. VDP’s teams for Delta FS are remote and based in Hungary and India.
