Projects are the Catalysts for Urbanization - VSR

  1. 1. Challenges in Managing Information Engineering & Analytics Projects Projects are the Catalysts for Urbanization -VSR 04-June-2010 Information Engineering and Analytics Learning using a complex domain
  2. 2. Urbanization <ul><li>Urbanization is the physical growth of urban areas as a result of global change </li></ul><ul><li>Urbanization is also defined by the United Nations as movement of people from rural to urban areas </li></ul>
  3. 3. The world’s largest cities and urban areas in 2020 Source: 12 of top 100 largest cities in the world in 2020 are from India Rank City/Urban area Country Average annual growth, 2006 to 2020, in % Population in 2020 (Millions) 2 Mumbai (Bombay) India 2.32 25.97 3 Delhi India 3.48 25.83 11 Calcutta India 1.74 18.54 28 Bangalore India 2.79 9.92 32 Chennai (Madras) India 1.68 8.88 35 Hyderabad India 2.21 8.61 39 Ahmadabad India 2.73 7.78 41 Surat India 4.99 7.72 43 Pune (Poona) India 3.46 7.53 78 Jaipur India 3.6 4.79 86 Kanpur India 2.53 4.44 100 Lucknow India 2.72 3.89
  4. 4. Urbanization changes the behavior of cities/urban areas Assess Behavior through quantifiable measures! <ul><li>Housing </li></ul><ul><li>Security </li></ul><ul><li>Education </li></ul><ul><li>Healthcare </li></ul><ul><li>Roads </li></ul><ul><li>Power generation </li></ul><ul><li>Sanitation facilities </li></ul><ul><li>Water  </li></ul>City Behavior Factors
  5. 5. Information Orchestration is the key for Urbanization <ul><li>Infrastructure today vs. future demand </li></ul><ul><li>Land usage pattern & forecast </li></ul><ul><li>Energy/water consumption pattern & forecast </li></ul><ul><li>Environment/human health pattern and forecast </li></ul><ul><li>Waste pile-up pattern and forecast </li></ul><ul><li>Traffic pattern and forecast </li></ul><ul><li>Crime/safety patterns and forecast </li></ul><ul><li>Telecommunication usage pattern and forecast </li></ul>BI & Analytics provide information on Current state and future demand
  6. 6. BI/Analytics Projects are the Catalysts for Intelligent Urbanization Urbanization in India
  7. 7. Intelligent Urbanization of India: What are these numbers? Education Security Housing Healthcare Sanitation Power Roads Water Source: From the Report, prepared by Booz & Company in association with Cisco Systems for CII $ 1 Trillion Investments in 10 years (2020) All the numbers are in Billion Dollars 150 160 300 120 40 120 100 30
  8. 8. Enabling Information Orchestration through BI/Analytics Projects - the Catalysts for Intelligent Urbanization <ul><li>Information Strategy & Architecture </li></ul><ul><li>Implementation of BI/Analytics & CPM Apps </li></ul><ul><li>Custom Development of DWBI Apps </li></ul><ul><li>Implementation of Master Data Management </li></ul><ul><li>Data Migration & Integration </li></ul><ul><li>Maintenance & Support of BI/Analytics Apps </li></ul>Illustrative
  9. 9. We probably need 275 catalysts for Intelligent Urbanization of India - 275 BI/Analytics projects (approx) Illustrative Line Item 10 years Investments Per year Investments (Equally distributed) Total Urbanization Investments 1000 BUSD 100 BUSD IT Investments @ 5% 50 BUSD 5 BUSD IT Services share @ 25% of IT investments $12 BUSD 1.2 BUSD Enterprise Apps (EA)/BI share @ 60% of IT Services $7 BUSD 700 MUSD BI Share @35% of EA/BI $2.5 BUSD 250 MUSD For every 100 Associates 4.5 MUSD revenue (India) Not Applicable 5500 Associates For every one project 20 associates Not Applicable 275 Projects
  10. 10. Five Success Mantras to avoid Successful failure BI/Analytics Projects Not many BI/Analytics Projects are Successful?
  11. 11. Analogy of Music: Success / Failure depends on….. You have great musical instruments You have great team to play the instruments Still the outcome of music is very poor- Why? We need a musician to orchestrate instruments & team to get the best music
  12. 12. Success Mantra 1: BI/Analytics Instruments Orchestration A competitive and Qualified Project Manager is required to orchestrate the BI & Analytics instruments to deliver value
  13. 13. Success Mantra 2: BI/Analytics Projects Delivery Engine <ul><li>Waterfall methodology </li></ul><ul><li>Iterative Methodology </li></ul><ul><li>Agile Methodology </li></ul>(based on different type of BI/Analytics projects)
  14. 14. Success Mantra 3: BI/Analytics Projects Alignment Projects Identification with participation from stakeholders Urbanization Critical Success factors/objectives & Prioritization of Projects Define Programs Form Program Teams not Departmental Teams BI/Analytics Projects are fraction of overall projects – Alignment is critical
  15. 15. Success Mantra 4: BI/Analytics Competency/Capability Building Solution Architects Functional Consultants Subject Matter Experts Technical Architects Technical Consultants Delivery Managers, Project Managers, Project Leaders BI/Analytics Applications CPM Applications Domain/Industry Data Warehouse Data mining Data Machines Reporting Publishers Project Life Cycles Project Management Life Cycle Leadership
  16. 16. Success Mantra 5: Preparing Customers <ul><li>Data entry errors abound as in the departments. Data inconsistencies are very high. No one bothers to verify correctness of the data and even when the inconsistencies stare them in the face they do not want to take the trouble of correcting data entry errors. This is mainly due to lack of understanding and commitment. Only the leadership of the Champions in the champion led projects there are efforts to ensure data integrity and this comes about after repeated training programmers and often after penalty is levied. Change management is a painstakingly slow  process .Skill and knowledge levels are very low. Feel threatened by too much of transparency being brought about, and look for every opportunity to scuttle the implementation. Once the champions leave there is less enthusiasm to continue and all efforts are undertaken to make the system irrelevant and fade away as early as possible. Users will in the initial stages not comprehend the jargon and not share domain knowledge. After the development is done, they will ask for further enhancements once they understand the computerized processes . At that point of time if the budgetary constraints appear, the project will meander into a failure </li></ul><ul><li>Repeated orientations/trainings </li></ul><ul><li>Better documentation/ Online help </li></ul><ul><li>Champions led projects </li></ul>Mr. Sri Kumar Retd.

Summary <ul><li>Information Orchestration is the Key for Intelligent Urbanization </li></ul><ul><li>BI/Analytics Projects are the Catalysts for Intelligent Urbanization </li></ul><ul><li>It is not only BI/Analytics Technology – Focus on 5 Success Mantras </li></ul>Back to the Future 15 th / 16 th Century India
