Business Requirements
Significant challenges with quality and consistency of infrastructure and application builds. This resulted in business disruption and risk. There was a large overhead in people and process leading to high OPEX. There was no clear visibility on IT costs with deployment times taking circa 200 days from ideation to GA. The deployments were inconsistent and considered “snowflake” infrastructure. Security was at the end of the process and manual. Larger strategy to include public cloud as a choice of destination.

 

The Delivery

  • Value stream mapping, understanding each step and process to provide infrastructure. This Includes people and process steps.
  • Mapped manual steps to technical process and tools.
  • Created Custom IaaS services and integration into 3rd party systems (CMDB,Logging, Management)
  • End to End configuration of the platform leveraging some existing segments of automation.
  • TAM and BAU ongoing services engagement and handover.
  • Created IT as a service for consumption by users, fully enabled private cloud. Standardised governance and blueprints that can be applied to on premise or public cloud endpoints based on policy.
