In 1995, the World Wide Web was in its infancy. Y2K or “The Millennium Bug” was barely on the horizon and awareness of it and its potential to cause disruption had yet to enter the public consciousness. For Millennium Founder, Phil Keet, the threat was obvious. Working for a London Investment Bank where technology was business critical, he recognised that finance systems in use at that time were unlikely to be able to successfully accommodate the impending digital change as clocks changed from 1999 to 2000. Being aware that a serious crisis was in the offing, Phil set up Millennium Consulting with a view to helping clients overcome the challenge.
Y2K meant that organisations could either re-programme existing software systems to handle the date change or alternatively migrate to new Y2K compliant software. Phil assembled teams of ERP change specialists to advise and support clients as they upgraded or transitioned to Millennium compliant software.
The global economy emerged relatively unscathed when 2000 arrived, thanks in part to the widespread work carried out by organisations to avoid the danger. Demand for skilled ERP specialists peaked during this period as the rush to beat the immovable deadline imposed its own discipline on corporate IT departments.
By 2018 Millennium Consulting has become a leading Global Management Consultancy providing strategic advice and delivery services to support the deployment of new corporate technology. Operating under two unique brands, Millennium Affine (specialising in regulatory technology solutions for the banking, insurance and telecommunications sectors) and Millennium Consulting (specialising in Unit 4 Financials, SunSystems and Oracle JD Edwards), we deploy world-class operational, financial and analytical systems on behalf of many of the world's leading organisations.
Working with partners across the globe, we provide end to end software deployment services, covering strategic advice, requirements gathering, system selection through to configuration, knowledge transfer, roll-out and post go-live support.
Our primary focus concerns technology deployment but we recognise that client engagement skills are equally as important as technical knowledge.
