  • 4. 1. Benefits & Pitfalls

    Unrealistic expectations of IT
    Unsure what change will do
    Lack of Planning
    Lacking stakeholder involvement
    Unclear SOD in departments
    Lacking Supplier Tech Support
    Cumbersome Process
    PFE, Inc: GJ dePillis © 2010
  • 5. Can I use Visio?
    1. Benefits & Pitfalls
    MODELING RULES: Visio is good modeling tool, but lacks modeling rule enforcement for standardization during model development
    NOT FOR AUDITS: Visio is good choice for small companies who won’t interface with regulatory bodies, federal agencies, and don’t need to be in compliance. If all you need is static diagram without intelligence behind each process step, then Visio is good choice
    REPORTING: Visio can’t report inventory based off a model diagram
    SIMULATION: Visio can’t simulate cost, systems impacted, and employees impacted by a process and then report on that.
    ARTIFACTS: Visio artifact attachment to objects is clunky.
    PROFESSIONAL VERSION: Can create a database within Visio Professional (Enterprise) edition but, Blogger comment: “…reminds me of the early '80s when people were sharing tips and tricks on how best to use Lotus 1-2-3 as a word processor!”
  • 6. 1. Benefits & Pitfalls
    How Do I start?
    Before You Get a Tool
    After Tool is in Place
    Capture current “as-is” process
    Inventory IT systems used (including Excel spreadsheets, physical assets, etc)
    Get executive buy-in
    Select your talent
    Create SOD
    ID tools used and how tools will interact with each other (MS project, Issue Tracking, Modeling tool, Plotter/printer…)
    Schedule working sessions
    Identify your goal and sub-goals
    Schedule: model built reviewed simulated published  train end users on process  Review model for updates
    Model development 55%
    Simulation 10%
    Analysis of simulation & decisions captured based on sims 35%
    Identify and document terms “problem”, “known error”, etc
    Map your “to be” process & capture gap analysis
    Clarify duties of architect and how Lead will interact with other architects and modelers
    Create tests to verify if models created meet business needs (be concise. Models should make life easier for employees)

  • 7. Business Process Tool Roll Out
    1. Benefits & Pitfalls
    PFE, Inc: GJ dePillis © 2010
  • 8. Cost of Non-Compliance
    In USA 2004 $5 billion with $1 billion going to IT to become SOX compliant
    Nearly 80% corps lacked IT infrastructure to track, audit, manage compliance. Corps used excel spreadsheets, ad hoc Databases, and various external vendors & couldn’t track consistently.
    It costs more to be OUT OF compliance than to create compliant IT systems that support business needs
    “However, while the costs of ensuring compliance are considerable, the costs of not being in compliance are even higher, as companies run the risks of exclusion from key markets, stopped shipments, and product recalls, with a corresponding loss of revenue and potentially disastrous consequences for brand image and/or corporate reputation. In the case of a serious breach of compliance regulations, firms may also face hefty fines and/or criminal prosecutions…Ireland may levy fines up to £15,000,000, can impose prison terms of up to 10 years, and will ask for a recall of violating products ”
    The Greening of the IT Sector: Problems and Solutions in Managing Environmental Compliance. by Tom Butler and Damien McGovern, The Cutter Edge, Vol 21, No 2
    2. Compliance

    ITIL (IT Infrastructure Library) created by OGC (Office of Government Commerce of United Kingdom) in 1989
    PFE, Inc: GJ dePillis © 2010
