The Ask:

Like many organisations at the time, The British Library had to make adjustments to their technology strategy in response to the Covid-19 pandemic. Having previously visualised this in programs such as Excel and Word, they required a new way of effectively communicating the updated technology strategy throughout the business.

Konvergent were engaged to produce a bespoke, interactive roadmap for the new technology strategy by The British Library’s Head of Architecture, Paul Clements. The solution needed to be accessible by a number of key stakeholders, capturing their attention instantly. Detailed levels of information needed to be just a click away. A clear, concise and intuitive interface was also required, as this was to be used primarily as a communications tool within the business.

The volatility of the Covid-19 pandemic also meant that the technology roadmap required updates on a regular basis. As such, understanding dependencies within the organisation was another key requirement

Key Points:

  • The interactive roadmap combines both a ‘Sunray view’ and ‘Swimlane view’.
  • Easily maintained and updated by Konvergent Design Studio
  • Multiple interactive features including: individual point overlays, RAG filter, Categories filter, Principles filter and Dependencies.
  • Acts as an inclusive visualisation tool with a range of low to high detail views.
  • Completely bespoke to suit the requirements and brand of the British Library.
