Position Summary
The Director, Service Integration and Management, is a key new position within the Technology Services Group (TSG) required by the new technology platforms being developed and deployed as we transform our delivery model under Project Darwin.
Service Integration and Management (SIAM) is an approach to managing multiple suppliers of information technology services and integrating them to provide a single business-facing IT service delivery organization. It aims at seamlessly integrating interdependent services from various internal and external service providers into end-to-end services to meet business requirements.
Bolstering information technology capabilities and capacity using multiple external suppliers is becoming a dominant operating model for many enterprise IT organizations and is a natural evolution from our current Strategic Partner model. This model is commonly known as multi-sourcing vendor integration.
The Director of SIAM Services within TSG Technology Services will be the primary leader of this service as it is developed, planned and implemented. During Project Darwin, this individual will be our business lead to ensure that the developed model is consistent within industry standards but also reflective of the requirements of the TSG technology delivery environment. Upon completion of Project Darwin, the Director will be accountable for the effective delivery of SIAM within our multi-vendor environment as well as positioning SIAM as an offering for other Brookfield business units.
