A next-generation platform that brings rigour and automation to Financial Services programme delivery

APEX provides a full range of project services housed in a dedicated platform

The culmination of many years work and decades of Financial Services change experience, our APEX framework brings structure and coordination to the delivery of programmes. Provided as an online tool which is powered by Method Grid, an AI-empowered platform that is used by thousands of organisations to support change, APEX contains a comprehensive array of project services, tools, documents and reference models that can be quickly configured to reflect the desired change approach for your programme, and can also integrate with your existing change methodology. From strategic overhauls to tactical implementations, APEX can cover the full spectrum of change scenarios.

We have built out a set of common Financial Services transformation playbooks to accelerate projects, but APEX isn’t just about a pre-packaged solution; it’s a fully configurable toolkit. Change programmes almost always struggle to get the basics right, just knowing what stage a deliverable is at, what the dependencies are or where the latest version of a document is can consume valuable time and resources. Collating information for reporting can become a full-time job in itself. APEX supports all of this and much more, providing structure in an intuitive and intelligence platform that frees up your delivery team to deliver.

Project Management & PMO

Working in partnership to drive, manage, and successfully execute and deliver focussed business outcomes

Our PM & PMO service is built around 5 core fundamental aspects of Project Management.  

Strategy & Business Case: Clear articulation of benefits, objectives and desired business outcomes – why the project exists.

Resources & Capacity: Identification of the people and funding required, including how they will be managed. 

Planning: How the project is broken down into clear phases and activities to deliver the outcomes. 

APEX Tools: Our industry blueprint APEX Change Management methodology, tools, templates and techniques that will be used to deliver the project. 

Governance & Controls: Our best practice techniques and processes used to control and govern the project. 

APEX encompasses these core aspects to provide an end-to-end service, capable of taking your project through from mobilisation to delivery, with the level of APEX input configurable to the requirements of each individual client.

 Migration & Implementation

Covering all aspects of a Migration, from developing strategy and approach through to the final migration event

Altus’s migration service combines a methodical, structured and flexible approach with migration experts who have worked in some of largest successful migrations across the industry.

Our approach starts with a full discovery, outlining the scope and agreeing the migration process. We’ll also perform a detailed analysis of your firm’s data. Our Programme Delivery teams can be deployed to partner, embed and own the full delivery of your migration or we can supplement existing teams with specialist resources as required. To support further Altus has partnered with UCT (part of the Equisoft Group) who have experience of 100 Financial Services migrations internationally.  




 A comprehensive testing service, emphasising cost-effectiveness and a risk-based approach

Altus’ testing service offers best-in-class functional, integration, performance, usability and security tests, focused on key business and technical risks. 

APEX provides a full testing suite with flexibility to fit specific programmes, projects or client circumstances. APEX’s testing suite encompasses services such as requirements review, risk-based testing review, test planning, management, scripting, strategy, execution and reporting and defect management. In-built management tools can be utilised to manage engagement with clients’ own resources for user and business acceptance and sign-off. 

Governance and assurance functions are integrated with the platform to ensure that testing activities can be tracked and managed from start to finish.

Let APEX be your go-to tool when it comes to testing.
