SIAM, or multi-sourcing integration, can help increase agility and ensure alignment and integration across multiple technology towers.
Vienna, VA (PRWEB) November 30, 2016
David Clifford, a director at business transformation and outsourcing advisory firm Pace Harmon, recently presented at the FUSION ’16 Conference & Expo with a session on Service Integration and Management (SIAM): Tricks and Tips for Multivendor Integration.
“As some enterprises move away from large managed service contracts towards a best-in-breed model for service towers, a greater emphasis on governance, integration and data/information aggregation is required,” said Clifford. “SIAM, or multi-sourcing integration (MSI), can help increase agility and ensure alignment and integration across multiple technology towers within an overall IT governance model.”
In his session, Clifford explored the considerations for selecting an appropriate SIAM model, illustrated how existing and emerging standards and frameworks can assist, and addressed the role of a service integrator and the retained IT organization to effectively provide strategic direction and overall governance. He also spoke to the key challenges and pitfalls to avoid, for example retro fitting service provider integration requirements, protecting intellectual property rights, and addressing service gaps and overlaps.
