Client Migration Consultant

Job Locations United Kingdom-London


Our ambition at The EIU is to reclaim our position as the global leader in our industry.  We seek to ensure the depth, quality and timeliness of our insights are second to none and recognised as such by companies, financial institutions, governments and universities - whether clients or not.


Our Blueworld & Classic platforms are a major constraint on that ambition. It doesn’t give us a service from which to demonstrate we have a right to play in a market where clients need to be able to find, access and use our analysis quickly, and assess real-world data alongside more traditional sources.


Our analysis is encumbered by our legacy platform, poor user experience with increasing reliability and security issues. It has also become a barrier to acquiring new customers and a reason for existing customers to look towards our competition.
