“CCM gave us the capability we aspired to have, and got us there in a fraction of the time.” – IT Director, Professional Services firm.
We have worked with an international law firm to replace their entire global intranet service. CCM managed the IT system design, deployment and testing, as well as championing the business change within the organisation, and all internal communications.
CCM was also been engaged by another large global law firm to centralise their HR recruitment system and processes. This project involved a broad stakeholder engagement approach to bring the diverse global HR teams along on the change journey, software selection and change deployment.
“CCM really got us out of a hole. We had underestimated what we needed to deliver our change programme and needed someone to cut through the politics and get our programme back under control. They did just that.” – COO, Financial Services company.
Our client, with 5,000 users across 26 offices worldwide was challenged with costly operating systems residing on expensive, end of life hardware which supported business critical systems including SAP, Documentum, and Oracle Databases.
The CCM approach to the project was to draw on strong project management and in-house technical expertise coupled with external consultancy, enabling us to deliver the project within the cost of the equivalent hardware replacement.
Our projects are delivered by passionate project professionals who will ensure you can take control of business change and be able to track the delivery of measurable results. We only recruit the best and are committed to ensuring our project teams feel part of the CCM family, with regular meetings, and company communication and social events.
The CCM ATLAS best practice methodology ensures all our projects follow a consistent delivery process with our project managers supported by the CCM Knowledge Hub. However, we also recognise that every client and project is different and that one size does not fit all, so we understand that flexibility is key and remain driven by your vision.
We believe in honesty and reliability. We aim to make a difference. Our people thrive on challenge and care about the projects they are working on. We make sure our people enjoy their work, are motivated and well rewarded and are given professional and personal support – so that together we can successfully deliver your projects.

Over two years, the CCM project management team delivered a highly complex technical project within the £500k budget resulting in cost avoidance savings of £800k per year. The environmental savings are equivalent to reducing the datacentre footprint by 25%, contributing to the company’s commitment to carbon reduction.
Managing the replacement of numerous legacy systems onto a single converged Local and Wide-Area Network with a budget of £45m over three years. CCM provided three key Programme Managers, ten Project Managers, a Project Management Office and a team of Implementation Engineers.
Following an extensive Analysis and Options phase, CCM engaged a knowledge specialist to provide an off-the-shelf Search solution that allowed for several customisations, aligning the bespoke search solution with the client’s requirements, allowing them to leverage knowledge from both within the firm and external sources.
CCM Portfolio and Product Management provided end-to-end management and successfully increased the ROI of technology projects from under £500k to nearly £11m in just three years. The reputation of the IT Departrment has increased and led to closer relationships with internal customers.
Global SAP upgrade delivered to plan and within budget. A core team of 35 people worked on the project for seven months, peaking at 60 people. The 400 man days of global User Acceptance Testing ensured a high quality result – only 5 issues were logged during the cut over, and all were swiftly resolved. The project is judged a major ‘win’ for the IT department.
