Sopra Steria transforms the FCA’s regulatory data submission for over 120,000 users

The UK’s Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) wanted to revolutionise the regulatory data submission process for over 52,000 firms and 120,000 users, whilst giving the FCA improved capabilities and capacity to collect, manage and process complex regulatory data. However, it was relying on Gabriel, a legacy on-prem system that had been at the heart of FCA’s operations since 2008. If the FCA didn’t replace the Gabriel platform they were in danger of losing the trust of firms and end users. The FCA needed a new approach: a user-centric, cloud-based, real-time & modern data platform.

Sopra Steria was chosen by the FCA to replace the Gabriel system with the new RegData platform. We worked closely with the FCA to define the vision for the RegData platform, designed the full service and customer experience, migrated data from Gabriel in the physical data centre to our cloud-based environment, and delivered a highly resilient service whilst maintaining data confidentiality, integrity and accessibility throughout.

We knew that migrating away from the Gabriel platform would be a challenge. Keeping the reporting facility live for firms throughout was critical. We were impressed with how Sopra Steria successfully migrated historic data across, while ensuring a reliable and resilient platform was always available for our users.  Matthew Tyrrell, Senior Manager/FDC Programme Accountable Executive, FCA.

Key to our success was the close relationship between Sopra Steria and the FCA throughout. We build a strong collaboration with a further five technology suppliers whose systems were also to be affected.

The new platform is now operational and scales to meet demand, with users commenting that it is significantly faster and easier to use. This has resulted in lower operational running costs for the FCA, seamless handling of spikes in demand and a User Experience design that enables users and firms to submit their regulatory submissions more quickly and view their historical records. This is a key tenet at the heart of the FCA’s Future of Data Collections (FDC) strategy.
