  5. 5. 3.0 TURNOVER: BACKGROUND AND RECOMMENDATIONS The primary turnover strategy and associated constraints are as follows: • DSS and IBM agreed through several contract amendments to complete additions to the Increment One project in a time period ending in June 2007. • As of June 2007 DSS and IBM will have been working as partners on the ACESS project for over three years. • The primary human resource success factors in this system turnover are that DSS needed to provide staff members who have the required background and technical expertise and that DSS encouraged those staff members to take ownership responsibility for tasks currently performed by IBM project staff. These tasks include: • Planning and operation of the release management process • Business planning • Technical planning • Level 1 support for operation of the Cúram 3 development, test and production infrastructure • Mentoring of DSS team members has been extremely successful in some areas and has been problematic in other areas. • In general, in areas in which DSS chose to partner their staff with experienced IBM resources for an extended period of time that allowed for both targeted training and on the job training, the skills transfer has been very successful • Developer training of DSS resources has been very successful. DSS has several team members who have passed the Cúram certification examination and are very skilled in application maintenance and enhancement. • WAS administration and build/deploy training has been successful even though DSS provided the final staff resources only during the third year of the project. • System DBA training has been successful even though DSS provided four staff members who were ultimately removed from this position after various amounts of training. Continual skills transfer to new staff members has proven to be extremely costly to the project. • There are two areas in which DSS has been unable, until the November 2006 timeframe of the project, to provide resources to be mentored in certain skill areas. • The ACESS business rules administrator role has been very recently. • The ACESS application DBA role was staffed very recently even though IBM had previously attempted to train four different DSS resources for this role. • The success of future turnover activities for continued maintenance and operations support by DSS after the contract has been completed is predicated primarily on the following factors: • New DSS staff members (or existing DSS staff members being placed into new roles) are provided the appropriate role definitions and technical training or technical background prior to the onset of mentoring activities. This prior State of Louisiana - ACESS Page 5 of 14 AC85: Final System Turnover Plan 333BVersion 1.4 332B05/07/2007
  6. 6. experience or training provides them with the necessary foundation skills to allow them to be successful in the new role. • New staff members work side-by-side with trained project staff for an appropriate period of time to allow them to take ownership responsibility of the required tasks for the role • DSS management support for the cost of staff being provided to the project for the purposes of mentoring and training. • DSS management support of the role definitions defined by the DSS project team to support the application after the ACESS contract has been completed. • DSS management support of an enterprise plan for configuration management. • ACESS is a new type of application for DSS. It requires an enterprise plan for managing integrated components of a enterprise system instead of managing standalone software applications. • DSS has recently made progress in notifying ACESS team management of enterprise configuration changes (ref: LDAP infrastructure migration notes in November 2006). • DSS has not included the IBM ACESS team in planning exercises associated with enterprise configuration management. • Because the ACESS system is an enterprise system connected to other systems in the DSS environment, e.g., iChain; LDAP; and TIPS; until DSS implements an enterprise configuration management plan, IBM believes that there will continue to be a high risk to ACESS availability to end users.

  11. 11. 4.3 Discussion of Roles and Assumption of Responsibility The information in this section builds on the information from Section 4 - Critique of State- Performed System Changes in AC84 Status and Critique of System Changes Performed by State Staff Post-Implementation. Each of the activities is mapped to one or more technical roles as previously outlined in AC84 and extended here. This section provides a subjective analysis of State resource's readiness to assume ownership of the responsible roles identified for each activity in Section 4.2 - Detailed Turnover Plan. The State has requested the particular topics to be covered here. AC84 is referenced where appropriate due to an overlap in content. Comments in this section are based on consultation with the state’s technical project lead, the work performed by State resources to date, and feedback from the IBM resources that have been responsible for knowledge transfer activities. 4.3.1.1 WebSphere Administration and ACESS Application for Application Batch Jobs Key State Resource(s) David Sylvia, Pam Gambrell, Stephanie Brooks, Ravinder Nimma, Jeff Clement Key IBM Resource(s) Michael Wang, Erik Moe, Neville Fernandes AC84 Context AC84 documented the application area primarily in terms of development and maintenance responsibilities and the WebSphere area primarily in terms of non- application-specific administration. Current Context The context here focuses on the combined set of skills necessary to support batch job operations. Proficiency of state State resources require additional mentoring in the following areas: resource(s) in • Debugging batch jobs including error conditions accepting • Batch job restart procedures responsibility • Detailed ETL walkthroughs • 211 data loading • Central printing walkthrough Appropriate rights, All DSS staff members have appropriate credentials and access to the access and tools appropriate tools for their role. confirmed Readiness of state to There would be considerable risk for a full turnover now but the mentoring assume full activities currently planned will dramatically reduce that risk prior to July 2007. responsibility 4.3.1.2 Database Administration Key State Resource(s) Greg Binning, Kory Sonnier, Dimitar Jordanov, (Bruce Cornell and Curtis Brown of DoA) Key IBM Resource(s) Chris Matallana, Kandasamy Balakrishnan Proficiency of state Some of the DSS staff require formal training in DB2 on zOS. The DoA staff are resource(s) in highly skilled but do not have ACESS application responsibilities. accepting State resources require additional mentoring in the following areas: responsibility • Data unloads and loads The DSS ACESS DBA should mentor other DSS DBAs in Rose modeling. The DSS ACESS DBA should find other methods to include DSS DBA staff in normal maintenance activities. Appropriate rights, All DSS staff members have appropriate credentials and access to the State of Louisiana - ACESS Page 11 of 14 AC85: Final System Turnover Plan 333BVersion 1.4 332B05/07/2007

Proficiency of state State resources require additional mentoring in the following areas: resource(s) in • ETL process maintenance accepting • Debugging ETL batch processes responsibility • Overview of functionality in ACESS WEBFocus reports Appropriate rights, All DSS staff members have appropriate credentials and access to the access and tools appropriate tools for their role. confirmed Readiness of state to DSS DBA staff are relatively unfamiliar with specifics of the ACESS ETL assume full process but are experienced in supporting DB2. The DSS WEBFocus team responsibility requires additional mentoring regarding the ETL process. There would be considerable risk for a full turnover now but the mentoring activities currently planned will dramatically reduce that risk prior to July 2007. 4.3.1.5 Rational Suite Administration Key State Resource(s): Josh Rowley, Dan Marler, Beth Carpenter (legacy Rational administrator) Key IBM Resource(s): David Hecker Proficiency of state Dan & Josh have become proficient in installation and basic configuration of the resource(s) in Rational toolset including scripted installations, licensing, and desktop accepting troubleshooting. They have a basic understanding of ClearCase and ClearQuest responsibility use, and a limited understanding of RequisitePro and Test Manager use. Without a developer/programming background, it will be difficult for Dan & Josh State of Louisiana - ACESS Page 12 of 14 AC85: Final System Turnover Plan 333BVersion 1.4 332B05/07/2007
  13. 13. to support the developers on any complex issues such as merging or stream strategies. State resources require additional mentoring in the following areas: • Creation and use of production patch stream • Review of security associated with different ClearQuest processes and groups Appropriate rights, All DSS staff members have appropriate credentials and access to the access and tools appropriate tools for their role. confirmed Readiness of state to DSS Rational administrators work with the ACESS project on a periodic part- assume full time basis. They are relatively unfamiliar with detailed development processes responsibility on the ACESS project. Additional experience with actual developer interaction and support is recommended. Training and mentoring will be provided to help Dan & Josh understand basic stream administration including child-stream creation and use as well as basic CQ administration including group/user permission administration. 4.3.1.6 Business Rules Administration Key State Resource(s): Sherry Guillory, Pamala Gambrell Key IBM Resource(s): Stan Wilde Proficiency of state Responsibilities include the following activities: resource(s) in • Analyze requirements for business rule creation or changes to existing accepting business rules responsibility • Implement the business rules Pamala, who has more experience with Cúram development, is acting as Sherry’s backup. They are currently implementing two business rules changes. Mentoring is ongoing. Appropriate rights, All DSS staff members have appropriate credentials and access to the access and tools appropriate tools for their role. confirmed Readiness of state to Training and mentoring by experienced DSS developers will be required to assume full continue to develop coding skills. Terri Eckles has indicated that she may enroll responsibility Sherry in a Cúram business rules class after Sherry has more experience with Cúram development 4.3.1.7 Backup/Recovery and Recovery/Restart Procedures Key State Resource(s): Greg Binning, Kory Sonnier, Dimitar Jordanov, (Bruce Cornell and Curtis Brown of DoA), Ravinder Nimma, Karthik Venkatesh, Terri Eckles Key IBM Resource(s): Chris Matallana, Kandasamy Balakrishnan, Erik Moe, Neville Fernandes Proficiency of state Responsibilities include the following activities: resource(s) in • Familiarity with DSS standards and operational procedures for accepting backup/recovery and recovery/restart procedures responsibility • Familiarity with the information in the following documents: • AC25 Disaster Recovery Plan • AC36/37 ACESS Operations Guide and Systems Documentation • AC79 ACESS System Documentation. Terri Eckles has current copies of these documents for distribution to appropriate personnel and to support additional Q&A if needed by DSS staff. Appropriate rights, All DSS staff members have appropriate credentials and access to the access and tools appropriate tools for their role. confirmed Readiness of state to DSS staff have extensive operational experience and, as a team, have assume full extensive knowledge of the ACESS environments. DSS staff should be well- responsibility prepared for taking over these responsibilities. State of Louisiana - ACESS Page 13 of 14 AC85: Final System Turnover Plan 333BVersion 1.4 332B05/07/2007
  14. 14. 4.3.1.8 Audit Reporting Key State Resource(s): David Sylvia, Jay Grantham, Terri Eckles Key IBM Resource(s): Michael Wang Proficiency of state Responsibilities include the following activities: resource(s) in • Understanding of DSS audit requirements for the following types of audit accepting reports: responsibility • Audit log reports for auditors and for management requiring specific transaction histories of certain clients • Audit log reports for auditors and for management requiring specific transaction histories of certain workers. • Understanding of the current ETL processes • Understanding of the current reporting processes • ACESS application development skills Appropriate rights, All DSS staff members have appropriate credentials and access to the access and tools appropriate tools for their role. Due to location and format of ACESS data and confirmed location of WebFocus tools and data, there may be a need to acquire an additional WebFocus adapter to perform needed tasks. Readiness of state to DSS staff have good development skills (application, ETL and WebFOCUS assume full reporting) and a good understanding of the audit requirements as currently responsibility documented by DSS. However, due to the current format of the audit log output, DSS staff are not well-prepared to assume these responsibilities. DSS requires additional assistance and mentoring by IBM staff to reconstruct the audit data into a usable format.
