Connexion Systems: Press Release, June 2017
PRESS RELEASE: Amplify Benefits-led Portfolio Management software chosen to support Public Health England’s Science Hub Programme
Connexion Systems, publisher of Amplify, the world’s leading enterprise benefits-led portfolio management solution, has been selected to provide their software and Benefits Management expertise to Public Health England’s [PHE] flagship Science Hub Programme.
In autumn 2015, the Government approved the outline business case [OBC] for over £400m of capital investment for the relocation of PHE facilities to Harlow, in the heart of the Cambridge to London Bioscience corridor. The Science Hub programme brings together PHE personnel from Porton, Colindale and the Central London headquarters into a world-class national public health science hub and headquarters facility located on a site vacated by GlaxoSmithKline [GSK].
The transformational Science Hub Programme aims to achieve far more than consolidating existing ageing facilities into a single building. It will enable PHE to embrace the advent of genome technology and big data in its work to tackle infectious diseases, combined with expertise in behavioural insights and the wider social sciences.
Science Hub is one of many ambitious transformation programmes included within the Government Major Projects Portfolio managed by the Infrastructure and Projects Authority [IPA]. The role of the IPA is to provide assurance to HM government that the programme will deliver it’s intended outcomes, and provides value for money for its customers.
Amplify, a cloud or on-premises solution, was selected after rigorous evaluation and piloting. It will be used by Public Health England to support the development of a robust validated Full Business Case. This will ensure that forecast programme benefits are actually realised some way down the track.
Amplify does this by establishing an effective benefits management system to identify and quantify financial and non-financial benefits, along with appropriate measures. This will enable PHE to monitor benefits delivery performance using our enterprise-level reporting.
Amplify uses secure role-based access to encourage stakeholder engagement and ownership in the identification, planning and tracking of business benefits throughout the programme and benefits management life-cycles.
Matt Williams, Founder and Principal of Connexion Systems said “We are delighted to be supporting PHE Science Hub Programme Management Team on this complex transformation programme. We look forward to working closely with PHE, and extending our long-standing involvement in the Health Sector worldwide.”
A software platform for aligning investments with strategy, developing structured business cases. Amplify provides workflow tools to identify, track and report on the actual and forecast value of benefits delivered.
