The British Library required a bespoke solution to their challenge. Previous iterations of their Technology Strategy Roadmap held too much data in one view, making it hard to understand in a short time. To combat this, Konvergent produced an interactive roadmap with two views: A ‘Sunray view’ and a ‘Swimlane view’, allowing different stakeholders to consume the roadmap as suited them. This would allow senior stakeholders to be communicated to in a language that they understood.
Technology Roadmaps require huge volumes of data, but information overload was causing fatigue amongst senior stakeholders at The British Library. To solve this, Konvergent created multiple interactive features and overlays, including: RAG filters, Categories filters, Individual point overlays, Principles filters and Dependencies. This ensures that the roadmap stays data rich, but the data is fed to stakeholders in much more consumable chunks. A range of low to high detail views kept the interactive roadmap true to the goal of being an inclusive visualisation tool.
As this was a bespoke tool, it was designed to match the exact requirements and brand of The British Library. The relationship with client continues as this tool is easily maintained and updated by the Konvergent Design Studio.
