Definitions • Central IT service provider • ITS, Medical Center IT • Commodity IT service • Service which can or should serve the enterprise • Examples includes email, data storage, network, desktop support, service desk, procurement • Local IT service • Service which will not be a commodity service; closely tied to mission of its unit, department, or school • Strategic IT services • Includes planning, budgeting, communications, research and evaluation, prioritization, etc.
Situation: OE IT Transition • OE is creating and centralizing commodity IT services, to be provided by ITS, MedCenter IT • Local IT provides non-commodity services, which will remain local • Local IT managers provide strategic services, which are not all replicated by central IT • Local research, education, and patient care efforts drive innovation, and will continue to do so • Schools/departments are partners in OE’s success, but may abandon OE services if they don’t deliver results • Customers need help making IT decisions • Central IT must engage stakeholders when making decisions
Target: OE IT End State • Avoid IT service duplication without hindering innovation • Differentiate commodity and new/local/innovative services • Connect innovators with commodity service providers • Provide continuity, strategic planning, and innovation to customer groups • Provide customer groups with budgeting and procurement support • Guide projects for customers • Ensure return on local and central IT investments • Promote overall IT efficiency • Monitor IT SLAs • Ensure consistently good customer experience • Prioritize customer issues/projects • Communicate across IT service and customer groups
Who Provides Strategic IT Services? • Local and outsourced IT leaders already provide strategic IT services • Some IT leaders will be affected by OE IT, others will not • As people are affected by OE IT, strategic IT service delivery needs to continue • Strategic IT services should be coordinated during and after the transition to OE IT
Risks of not acting • No local IT leadership in some groups leads to inconsistent or no strategic IT services, poor management of local IT staff • No consistency in strategic IT services leads to poor customer experience, less efficiency, inconsistent prioritization • No local IT leadership means commodity IT service providers self-monitor SLAs with no consistent oversight from customers • No coordination of local IT leaders leads to service duplication • Inconsistent budgeting and procurement support leads to waste and inefficiency, difficulty in coordinating strategic purchases • Uncertainty for local IT leaders results in talent exodus

IT Governance Committee • Customer-focused advisory group • Local IT leaders • Local business leaders • CRMs • Provide forum for service providers and product managers to solve problems with customers • Provide a voice for local IT staff in IT governance
Next Steps • Present to additional audiences • Individual SOM Managers, Chairs • Academic Senate • Formalize CRM job duties, deliverables • Answer remaining questions • Decide how many CRMs, short and long term • Based on customer population, geography, mission? • Can customers opt out? Do their SLAs change if they do? • Do local IT staff report to CRMs?
