Abstract

“Experian is a global leader in providing information, analytical and marketing services to organisations and consumers to help manage the risk and reward of commercial and financial decisions”. Experian UK, partners with more than 100,000 clients across multiple industry sectors providing businesses with competitive advantage and delivering real value to customers by combining the power of information assets and expertise that is unmatched in the industry. Experian is the only UK Company to win “Business of the Year” award twice.

A new IT infrastructure project that can take Experian to the next level requires a strong business case that can ensure successful completion of the infrastructure project. A business case is a document which includes the information that justifies the setting up, continuation or termination of the project. A business case is the orientation of the project to the value creation.

This internship management project is accordingly to exploit the discipline of business case definition to ensure that the IT infrastructure project is completed successfully and delivers maximum business value. The key components of the business case are identified through the available literature. These key components are crucial in ensuring the successful completion of the IT infrastructure project.

Multiple interviews were conducted with senior managers from various business divisions to gather information required to understand how the discipline of business case can be used to deliver business value through the infrastructure project. The report analyses the key business case components with respect to the infrastructure project in several sections which individually can benefit readers to better understand the business case development process that can ensure the successful completion of infrastructure project.
