Experinces Deploying Shared Services

  1. 1. Experiences Implementing Shared IT Services R. Scott Studham Chief Information Officer University of Tennessee
  2. 2. What are “Shared Services”? Maturity Level 1 Maturity Level 2 Maturity Level 3 • Shared • Common • Centralized IT infrastructure via business organization with collaboration practices, with no budget. The across IT strong customer IT organization organizations. driven IT is purely funded governance. as purchased services from other organizations (customers).
  3. 3. Oak Ridge National Laboratory Status: Complete implementation of Level 3 shared services in four years. Benefits: Improved customer services, 15% cost savings while still being able to support modernization projects and increase in overall size of company by 150%. Strategy: Centralize, then Standardize, then Modernize. Pain: Centralization of all IT staff caused a 1 year “social nightmare.” But the improved ability to delivery overcame this.
  4. 4. University of Tennessee Status: Year 2 of a 4 year journey. Moved from Level 1 to Level 2. Benefits: Addressed the “Crisis of confidence.” Starting to see real cost savings due to customers having control (they stop buying their own IT staff). Strategy: Make the core credible. Give customers control. Remove duplication. Pain: Did this without a “massive centralization.” “Purchased Service” is still new to higher education. Most accounting practices still need to be modernized.

  6. 6. Roadmap To Shared Services Finance Controls money, which is needed to enforce policy. HR Controls hiring of new resources (it can be done in parallel with IT). IT A single organization to modernize electronic business processes. Other Then you do everything else (such as facilities, etc). It may take years
  7. 7. My Suggestions For UNT  Ensure The Roots Of The Organization See The Benefit In This  Set A Realistic Timeframe With Milestones  Hire A Strong System CIO Who Has Authority To Review All “IT Finances & Positions”  Make Sure The New CIO Lives “Customers Need To Control IT, Not The CIO”  All Services At Any Campus Should Follow An International IT Operating Standard Such As ITIL  Campus IT Needs To Be Centralized or Rationalized  All IT Services Will Be Budgeted By Service  No Spending On IT Services Except By Customer Direction
