  • 5. 4. How has architecture addressed your business needs? Who are the stakeholders of the architecture team and how do you work with them? What deliverables has the Architecture function produced and how are they used? Are there specific solutions and technologies associated with your Architecture practice? Were there any particular approaches (BPM, SOA, cloud computing, etc.) that were instrumental in accomplishing goals? (Please limit response to less than 500 words) How the architecture Addresses the business Needs The Service Oriented Architecture applied the primary principles of supply chain to the provisioning of IT Services. The Transformation required to move from a Technology Focus to a Service Focus was achieved by ensuring that Service Views on an End to end Basis were Identified and embedded in the BPM Software. Roles, Responsibilities, Authorities, Objectives and Metrics were designed for the services. For details see Anex 13. UK IT HD - DSS Integrated SOM IM PM Framework V 1.1 The lifecycle of the Incident and service requests was re- crafted from a service oriented approach and using the BPM Tool the process was configured to provide transparency over the entire journey of an Incident from its registration to resolution. A primary deliverable the Architectural Assignment was the design and development of an integrated Incident Classification and Resolution Framework. The framework shown alongside was developed and the architecture team worked with more than 45 groups to develop a new set of classification. Refer Anex 12. Integrated Classification and Resolution Framework V 1.0 8/8/2011 iCMG Architecture Excellence Awards
  • 6. The Data collected against the architecture was inventoried and configured in the BPM tool. Thisallowed active control over the process stages and enabled the establishment of Metrics which can beused to clearly implement roles and responsibilities and measure individual performance aspectsThe screen shots in the next page show the collection of the information required by the architecturalstructures and their impact. The classification was crafted to be used across all services provided byTesco in all countries. This by itself is the single biggest contribution to the Convergence Objective as itprovided a stable platform by which all countries can be integrated regardless of the technologies used. The picture alongside illustrates the V Model resulting from the Integrated Classification and Closure Categorisation Framework The prime deliverable from this framework is the capability to move in multiple dimensions between the Classification based on Symptoms experienced by the service user and the Resolution action provided by the Service Provider.A template was innovatedto collect data to createthe required inventories.The template implementeda Matrix Framework todevelop the capability foridentifying the variousColumn and Row elementsrequired for architectingthe Incident ManagementProcess’s What, How,Where, Who, When andWhy, Columns of theZachman EnterpriseFrameworkTM.8/8/2011 iCMG Architecture Excellence Awards

Use the data from the system to establish service improvement programs across the organisation Organisational Challenges: 1. Lack of ITSM knowledge in all levels of the organisation and the need to educate the fundamentals 2. Getting Operational staff to fully understand the architectural implications and to accept the transparency that it would bring to their services. 3. Getting Various Country IT organisations to understand the benefits of a unified architecture and to adopt it enthusiastically. 4. Multi level management, which meant that executives in HSC had to be aligned with executives in country and with the Management Committee in the UK Corporate offices,.
