Significant progress has been made in designing a new approach to the delivery of data analytical platforms. This has been successfully deployed in Universal Credit with work underway in Pensions and Finance.

Development of the new Data and Analytics platform for Children was originally planned to complete in late 2017 but was delayed. However, transformation has now begun of the current 2012 Data Warehouse to this new platform and we expect to complete this work in 2020.
