  19. Our approach to IT Strategic PlanningJim Crawford NOREX SelectWorkshop 15 June 2011

  20. Biography • Jim Crawford • Sr. Principal, Enterprise Architecture and Planning • Enterprise IT Strategic Planning • Architecture Governance Processes • With Eaton since 1997 • Background in data center, network and help desk operations, security, messaging and client technologies. • In architecture role since 2005. • Previously held positions at Aeroquip Vickers, AlliedSignal (Honeywell), System Source.

  21. Eaton Business System • A methodology and culture of quality and continuous improvement. • Deployment of common tools and processes, focusing on consistency and repeatability. • Each function is challenged with understanding, documenting and improving processes. • Process are integrated and this integration is how we do business every day.

  22. Strategic Planning • One of Eaton’s and IT’s Key processes. • The Strategic Planning process is an enterprise-wide effort to produce fundamental decisions and actions that will shape and guide Eaton's future direction.

  23. IT Strategic Planning Process Development Deployment

  24. Alignment and Progress Reviews • Employee • Mid-year review cycle • End of yearprogress • Annual goal setting • Quarterly - Strategic initiatives against the plan targets and goals. • Monthly - IT operational review and Global IT Council meetings with strategic measures tracked on a balanced scorecard. • Operational contribution • Cost out • Process efficiency • Deployment penetration of key systems • We are continuously working to achieve our Plan goals

  25. Structure of the plan Element Definition

  26. Year-to-year • Repeatable process • Corporate guidance is provided if certain focus areas are targeted • In IT, we refresh the plan annually to keep our focus clear and up-to-date for the organization

  27. Strategic Plan Versions Multiple versions are created, targeting specific stakeholders and audiences: • Full Enterprise IT Strategic Plan • Elevator speech version – strategic intent in 30 sec. • Executive version – strategic intent and major initiatives • Graphical version – explains the “whats” and “whys” with fewer words and more pictures • IT-specific version – provides additional details and deeper dive into the technology “hows”

  28. Continuous improvement (examples) • 2004: Purely an IT cost-cutting focus • 2005: “A strategy is the sum of 1000 initiatives” • 2006: Better integrated with company goals • 2007: Added challenge areas; e.g. emerging markets growth • 2008: Cross-group planning coordination/review • 2009: Adopted new plan structure • 2010: Single global plan; “enduring” measures

  29. Evolution 2011 We have evolved to a true “Enterprise IT Strategic Plan” with a cross-sector Steering Committee and cross-sector strategy focus teams providing specific sections of the IT Strategy

  30. Eaton Business System and Strategic Planning • As a repeatable key process, IT Strategic Planning is one of our most mature processes • Strategic planning provides the foundation for IT goal setting, portfolio prioritization and investment • Our strategy drives organizational actions throughout the year. It is not put on the shelf to collect dust.

  31. Governance Making sure the pieces fit Our approach to Architecture GovernanceBrian Schultz NOREX SelectWorkshop 15 June 2011

  32. Biography Brian Schultz is an Enterprise Architect in the Eaton Corporate IT Enterprise Architecture Group. He is a member of the Solutions Architecture team within that group. He has worked for Eaton since 1998. Prior to that, Brian held positions with IBM, Westinghouse, and DuPont.. Brian has been awarded 5 US Patents for inventions in the Information Technology disciplines of Artificial Intelligence and Business Analytics.

  34. Processes (Services) Defines and documents the desired-state architecture; happens iteratively over time Develops and articulates business challenges and IT strategic objectives; informs IT investments & architecture iteration Architecture Definition Strategic Planning Provides architectural guidance to projects and initiatives, yielding faster delivery and higher quality Senses and incubates emerging technologies that have strong potential business value to Eaton Architecture Consulting Technology Surveillance Provides a process for reviewing compliance with architectural standards and obtaining variances where appropriate Investigates and informs about trends in the IT industry; observes vendor strategies; provides product & process insights to project initiatives Architecture Governance Industry Research Let’s talk about these in the context of projects

  39. Guiding Principles • The Guiding Principles provide overarching guidance for all Information Technology activities • They act as a framework for all otherEnterprise Architecture processes

  40. Architecture Bricks:Tactical and Strategic Planning Horizons Top Row:Baseline = what’s already here; Tactical = what to buy now; Strategic = what’s coming after that Center Rows: Current point in life cycle for each product / version: Retire, Contain, Mainstream, Emerging Bottom Area: Implications and dependencies to be aware of regarding this technology “brick”. Current 0-2 Years 2-5 Years Baseline Environment Tactical Deployment Strategic Direction Retirement Targets Mainstream Standards Exit from Environment Containment Targets Emerging Technologies Introduction To Environment Brick-Specific Implications and Dependencies

  41. Patterns • Patterns provide guidance for how to combine and arrange technology components to provide larger, reusable system framework elements that meet project needs • Pattern Definitions include: • Abstract • Description • Use Case • Architecture • Component List • Guidelines for Usage

  44. Architecture Review Process • Intent: Ensure that projects with significant architecture impact are reviewed early in the project life cycle to drive for increased compliance with standards • Focus on evaluation of those project aspects that are considering: • Architectural risk elements of the project • evaluation of project’s architecture and it’s consistency with strategic program roadmaps • New or non-compliant architectural bricks and patterns • Two levels of review • Architecture Review Board for High Architecture Impact • Enterprise Architecture Core Team Review for Medium Architecture Impact
