  2. 2. “Amid dramatic changes in the technology marketplace in recent years, many IT providers are trying to move up the value chain by providing more comprehensive and business-oriented solutions. The move to solutions responds to buyer demand for business value as well as providers' needs to stake out competitive differentiation and new areas for profitable growth.” - Rob Leavitt
  3. 3. IT Service CMM The Service CMM is a capability maturity model that specifies different maturity levels for organizations that provide IT services
  4. 4. 1. Initial level: The IT service delivery process is characterized as ad hoc, and occasionally even chaotic. Few processes are defined, and success depends on individual effort and heroics. 2. Repeatable level: Basic service management processes are established. The necessary discipline is in place to repeat earlier successes on similar services with similar service levels. 3. Defined level: The IT service processes are documented, standardized, and integrated into standard service processes. All services are delivered using approved, tailored versions of the organization’s standard service processes. 4. Managed level: Detailed measurements of the IT service delivery process and service quality are collected. Both the service processes and the delivered services are quantitatively understood and controlled. 5. Optimizing level: Continuous process improvement is enabled by quantitative feedback from the processes and from piloting innovative ideas and technologies. - Frank Niessink, Viktor Clerc, Ton Tijdink and Hans Van Vliet
  5. 5. Three Pillars of Delivery Excellence Schedule Quality Cost
  6. 6. Total Cost of Quality The total cost of quality in an IT software and services engagement is the combined costs of assurance, prevention and failure.
  7. 7. Key Elements of The Right Ecosystem for Delivery Excellence 1. Relationship Maturity: This means investment by both TCS and customers in a partnership based on a shared vision and strategic objectives leveraging a customized yet time tested service model that TCS has perfected. Both sides must continuously challenge one another to raise the bar, promoting innovation accompanied by moderate risk. 2. Governance: Excellence requires evangelical executive sponsorship and a commitment to establishing key performance measurements at all levels, joint ownership with clear accountability, and periodical performance reviews that effectively address the root causes that limit performance 3. Partnership: Investing in interpersonal relationships at all levels that promote open and timely communication, and–extremely important– transparency on both sides. Empowerment at appropriate levels to remove hurdles and drive process improvements that promote pro-activeness, productivity, reuse, change, efficiency and leverage of the broad ecosystem that both TCS and its customers bring to the table. The relationship between clients and consultants must be marked by a shared language, a shared vision, shared objectives, and a shared definition of success metrics. Source: Tata Consultancy Services
