IT Transformation Project


The IT Transformation Project (ITTP) officially launched in mid-January 2016 starting with the Discovery Phase, with the project starting fully in June 2016. Below you will find the latest update along with a link to the previous updates:


September update

There are three imminent deadlines that the BE Project Team are working towards currently:

1. Scoring Trial

The Scoring Application has now been handed over by Makepositive following completion of development and bug fixing.  User Acceptance Testing (UAT) of the system started on Monday, and continues progress. The main objective of UAT is to build confidence in the new system - ensuring all functionality has been tested by our project team, and bugs ironed out by Makepositive prior to starting the field trial at a selected number of British Eventing fixtures in October.

The field trial will be used to further test the system and will involve members of the project team running the new Scoring App in parallel with the scoring system on event. Once the trial has been completed the project team will review feedback, and make any changes necessary before wider deployment next season.  

2. The website launch

We continue to work on developing the website with Brightsites, our Drupal partner, for launch before Christmas. Work also continues with Makepositive, our Salesforce  partner, to ensure that information runs seamlessly between the database and new website. The British Eventing Marketing team are currently in the process of populating the new website Content Management System (CMS) with new content, fresh images and an improved navigation structure.  Focus groups with representatives from all stakeholder groups will be involved in the User Acceptance Testing of the website prior to its launch. The testing period will start in mid-October and is due to last eight weeks. 

3. Entries and  Event Administration 

Entries: the Entries system remains under development and will be completed as part of the launch of the new website.  

The Event Administration element of the EARS project will be restarted shortly and the aim is to have this ready for field testing at the beginning of the 2019 season and continue development and deployment during 2019 ready for full deployment in 2020  

We will continue to post regular updates on the progress of the various elements of the I.T Transformation Project. Please refer to previous updates for detailed information on the elements of the project covered above.

We will be posting more detail on timelines and updated costings in the next update, due in October. Previous updates can be found HERE.
