Successful Implementation of a New Platform

In this case study, a 7N Consultant, in the role of the Business Architect and Project Manager, handled an extensive conversion project for one of 7N's clients in the pension industry. The role of the 7N Consultant involved data analysis, strategy design, and handling intricate data conversions.


At 7N, the heart of our business lies in our dedicated consultants. Each day, they apply their expertise and go above and beyond to assist our clients in achieving the best possible solutions. It is for this reason that we aim to shine a spotlight on the remarkable efforts of some of our consultants, who are fueled by their knowledge, commitment, and wealth of experience. Let's unleash their performance.


Karsten Weikop is one of our excellent, high-performing IT consultants. His true dedication came to the forefront in Karsten's ambitious work as the Business Architect and Project Manager in a significant conversion project with one of 7N’s clients, a large Danish company delivering software for the life and pension industry. The scope of the project was to implement a platform at their client, here referred to as company X.

The software to be implemented was the 7N client’s policy administration module, which is the leading Nordic platform with the industry’s most potent calculation engine within policy administration and contract management. The module supports the market interest rate, average rate, life cycle products, and unit-linked products in one single solution and can be extended with company-specific functionalities.

Karsten has been involved from the beginning of the project in 2017 until the end of it in 2022. Throughout this period, Karsten has helped 7N’s client with the initial analysis of company X’s current systems and data, followed by designing a strategy on how to convert the data and finally handling the conversion itself. Furthermore, Karsten built the playbook outlining the project’s approach, describing all workflows, and standard procedures, while at the same time handling the complicated cut-over process that included an extensive reformation of the data model, as the data could not be translated one-to-one.

A total of 15 contract extensions prove Karsten’s extraordinary and indispensable effort in the project. He is a highly experienced consultant who excels in communicating with both the business and IT. With significantly more hours put into work in the last month of the project, Karsten once again showed dedication and commitment to the success of the project, and there is no doubt that he has made a great impact on the project.

The Program Director of the project states the following about Karsten: “I was incredibly satisfied with the cooperation with Karsten. He is super skilled, both in the subject area he was responsible for and in handling a large and complex knowledge area. He is pleasant to work with, flexible, hard-working, efficient, persistent, and certainly well-liked by both colleagues at [7N’s client] and employees at [company X]. Together, we solved the difficult task of converting [company X’s] entire stock of policies from the old system to the new solution, with great satisfaction for everyone and with an incredibly low error margin.

We are lucky and proud to work with such a dedicated and professional person as Karsten. We hope to continue our work together for many years in the future!
