  • With the components of the SOC defined, let’s take a look at an example of how it can be implemented at a client. This example follows a similar deployment we currently have for a large global financial services firm. From an operational perspective, Keane has deployed the SOC in a multi-shore model with local accountability on site at the client. Issues are managed on a follow-the-sun schedule at both nearshore and offshore locations across all service levels and handoffs are coordinated and seamless. While significant value has been derived from operations, the real differentiator has been the value that has been driven by the elimination of manual tasks. By continually analyzing the environment and Utilizing Proactive Health Checks and Automation the team eliminated over 40,000 hours of time spent on manual reactive tasks in 1 year.

    • 2. Market Trends: IT Sourcing and Delivery Changes Over Time
      1960s - 1980s
      Organizations used a sole
      outsourcing provider focused
      on reducing costs
      2005 - today
      Sourcing enabled by a *”sourcing service integrator”
      1990s - 2005
      Evolving demands leads to
      Multi-sourcing and best-of-breed
      technology providers.
      Wave 3:
      Wave 2: Network Web / Internet
      Wave 1: PC / Distributed
      The concept of Cloud Computing is changing the way that many IT services are being sourced and delivered – including compute infrastructure, service management, applications development, software hosting, software testing and the methods of paying for those services

    • 81. Keane CloudCase Studies
    • 82. Product Development Lab on a Private Cloud
      Streamlined testing and development for a global provider of mission-critical IT environments for businesses and governments
      • The virtual machines hosted all Windows OS’s, all Linux OS’s and Solaris X86
      • 83. VM Ware lab-manager allowed creating a machine library containing pre-configured machines with SAN Storage to host around 200 machines of 40 GB each
      • 84. The ability to create machines on the fly minimized the duration of lengthy SAT testing and the ability to throttle compute power allowed quick and controlled builds
      • 85. The Clone feature of Lab Manager allowed testing team to recreate environments and expedite the debugging and fix processes
      • 86. The total testing time cycle for the product was brought down by 6 days, leading testers to add new test cases to the test bed, improving the quality of the product, improving the developers productivity, and reducing the overall product time-to-market
      • 87. More frequent releases resulted in customers getting their bug-fixes and enhancements earlier and on time
      • Solution was to build a Private cloud environment for the lab that would host a library of test environments
      • 88. Families of machines representing multiple test scenario could be brought to live within 3 Minutes
      • 89. Commodity hardware was virtualized using VMware Esx (Virtualization on bare metal)
      • 90. VM Ware Vcenter was used to Federate resources from multiple machine into one resource pool
      • 91. VM Ware Lab Manager was used to create machine templates
      • 92. All the machines used for a given scenario were made in to templates that were organized into libraries based on test scenarios
      • 93. A Template would represent a machine with all the OS/Hardware/Software built into it and taxonomies were developed to name the templates
      • A large Software products company contracted Keane to build a multi-technology software product
      • 94. The product has a build-test-release cycle of 6 weeks elapse time
      • 95. The team consisted of 100 to 150 members composed of Architects, Developers, Testers and managers distributed among three organizations spread in three geographies
      • 96. “Time to market” most critical aspect of the engagement as there were around 1200 test cases to be executed on 12 Different Hardware/OS Platforms
      • 97. Customer Site Product Dev Lab had 127 physical servers which had to be shared by all teams with most machines having too little RAM for Product Development testing
      • 98. The current environment required the product to be installed and configured on various machines from scratch which took around 6 days and consumed 40% of testing schedule
    • 99. Keane Cloud Applications Development and Testing Environment
      Keane-provided Cloud test and development environment for a leading provider of mobile phones and broadband services
      • Ability to configure, copy and clone server and test environments in minutes
      • 100. Consumption-based costing model – No investment in capital by the customer
      • 101. Usage of resources tracked by project and billing is individually generated and reported at the project level
      • 102. Keane TIS 24x7 monitoring & management of critical infrastructure – applications monitoring available upon request
      • 103. User security is delivered through dedicated VPN tunneling and role-based client access managed by Keane TIS
      • 104. Fully managed version control of application iterations through Keane QAT best practices and tools
      • Keane Technology Infrastructure Solutions (TIS) cloud-based virtual machine infrastructure, providing global access, high availability and full security features
      • 105. Fully configurable server and storage capabilities, set up through graphical user interface
      • 106. Windows or Linux operating system pre-installed with ability to install others as required
      • 107. 24x7 Remote Monitoring and managed services support
      • 108. Keane ITIL services support of Problem, Incident, Change, Configuration, Capacity, and Release Management
      • 109. Consumption monitoring of technology use by project – costs incurred only when resources are in use
      • 110. Keane Quality Assurance and Testing (QAT) practice participation in setup and management of the application testing environment and testing process support
      • Customer has a single Reference environment which is used by projects for all phases of the testing lifecycle (System, Integration, Acceptance, Non-functional)
      • 111. All projects / work streams share one environment, causing bottlenecks in delivery
      • 112. No effective change control in place for applications, leading to project clashes
      • 113. No configuration management for applications, leading to reference being out of sync with live; causing issues when needed for live fault resolution
      Desired End State
      • A single testing infrastructure solution that allows multiple test environments running concurrently, to be set-up on a per project basis, for the lifetime of the project, paid for by the project.
      • 114. One end-to-end live like “reference” environment, not to be used for simple, functional testing.
      • 115. Reference environment fully change/configuration managed.
      • 116. Application level change management for all test environments.
      • 117. Both “test” and “Reference” platforms to be fully supported and monitored.
    • 118. Keane HSD – Subscription-based Cloud Applications
      Keane’s Healthcare Services Division (HSD) has developed a series of healthcare management applications for hospitals, clinics, and nursing homes to support administrative and clinical records management functions. Keane HSD has joined with Keane Technology Infrastructure Solutions (TIS) to move those applications into a cloud infrastructure managed by TIS and made available to customers via multiple subscription-based pricing models.
      • Ability to offer the applications on cloud-hosted infrastructure with various pricing options depending upon the needs and desired service level delivery model of the customer
      • 119. Technology that can be leveraged to support multiple customers without risk to each other
      • 120. Hospitals, clinics and nursing homes are freed of capital investments in technology and infrastructure support
      • 121. High availability and disaster recovery capabilities of the cloud infrastructure far exceed previous on-site hosted models while operating at a reduced TCO
      • Keane HSD and TIS worked together to port the applications to virtual hardware platforms: AIX partitioned servers for AcuteCare and Windows VMware platforms for Long Term Care
      • 122. Keane resulting cloud-based virtual machine infrastructure provides global access, high availability and full security features
      • 123. High availability is delivered through hosting the technology on highly fault-tolerant technology installed in Keane-managed Tier III+ data centers
      • 124. Health records are partitioned separately from each customer to ensure privacy and compliance with HIPPA requirements
      • 125. Disaster Recovery and failover is engineered through regular replication of data to systems located at a remote site
      • 126. Keane TIS provides 24x7 remote help desk, monitoring and managed services support including Problem, Incident, Change, Configuration, Capacity, and Release Management
      • 127. Keane HSD provides applications and user support to subscribers of the applications
      • Keane HSD has multiple healthcare management applications marketed to small to medium sized hospitals and clinics (AcuteCare applications suite) and nursing homes (Long Term Care applications)
      • 128. HSD had traditionally licensed the applications for installation on the customers’ premises and hardware platforms but was encountering increased competition from other vendors offering similar applications in an ASP hosted, subscription pricing model
      • 129. Small hospitals and nursing homes are traditionally challenged for IT resources and supporting applications and technology onsite is costly and difficult for them
      • 130. Even in an ASP service model (whereby a third party would host their applications), smaller healthcare providers find it difficult affording server hardware dedicated to their use
      Desired End State
      • Ideally, for smaller hospitals, clinics, nursing homes and physicians, healthcare and clinical records management applications need to be readily available from hosting providers that can offer the applications priced to support their specific needs and operated on technology that is highly available and leveraged to support multiple customers without risk of security and HIPPA infractions
