Hi, I’m Barry Kelly Thanks for coming along I work for United Biscuits, a £1.4BN biscuits and snacks manufacturer, Our Brands are no. 1 in UK and no.2 in W. Europe I’ve worked in United Biscuits for 14 years, starting as a research engineer, procurement manager then into 10 years ago I came across to IT where I’ve worked in various roles from Project Controller to Applications Service Manager I’m currently responsible for Enterprise Architecture across the group The EA Effort began in 2006 when we moved outsourcer from Atos Origin to Tata Consultancy Services – I was the Change manager for this project and saw it as an opportunity to begin an EA effort as the artefacts were being created during the transition – in the MS Office suite of course We implemented ProVision in 2007 and I’m going to take you through our journey from justifying a tool to embedding it within United Biscuits
The provision tool can flip between the different frameworks so it doesn’t matter which is your preferred framework We actually adapted the EA framework slightly to suite UB
The diagrams show how a workflow can be flipped to show the activities from a functional perspective Very useful for re-structuring or outsourcing Also it provides one consistent approach for running workshops – and getting sign-off
