RBS & the Atlassian Suite

One of the UK’s largest banks transitions from legacy to Agile with Clearvision

  • RBS came to Clearvision looking to move from the legacy tool IBM Clearcase to the Atlassian stack, with a transition to agile working.
  • RBS adopted Bitbucket Server, Atlassian’s ‘behind the firewall’ Git management solution, utilising Clearvision’s expertise as Atlassian’s premier Git Expert.
  • Clearvision provided intense training that enabled the RBS team to act as mentors and trainers to the rest of the business for these new tools, and helped them with the planning and deployment.
  • RBS needed training at scale for their teams, with Clearvision ensuring 2,000 people were up to speed quickly with Jira best practices.

RBS Challenge

RBS came to Clearvision looking to move from IBM Clearcase to more Agile processes. The bank wanted to have better visibility, with efficient communication and transparency of work across departments.

The bank also needed to get up to speed with key Atlassian tools in preparation for rolling them out to a 2,000+ user base.

Clearvision Solution

Clearvision provided RBS with licensing for Atlassian Jira and Confluence, which are collaboration and communication tools.

On top of providing these licenses, Clearvision provided intense training that enabled the RBS team to act as mentors and trainers to the rest of the business for these new tools, and helped them with the planning and deployment of them. As a result, Clearvision was able to provide a rapid deployment, and the bank was then able to support their end-users from day one with no down time.
