Risk Framework Development and Implementation

As an enterprise architect, I spearheaded a comprehensive EA maturity proposal. This involved developing a risk framework offering valuable insights into tangible risks that could disrupt critical systems.

The implementation of this framework resulted in an estimated prevention of operational losses and impacts amounting to approximately $5 to $7.5 million within the first 12 months.

ITIL-based Project

As a director of practice management, I took charge of a significant ITIL program valued at $30 million, which substantially impacted various lines of business (LOB). I began by providing an initial proposal and sales support, then delivering and offering governance support throughout the program's lifecycle.

Essential aspects of the project comprised ensuring a smooth transition with low disruption while providing thought leadership and direction for continued improvements and high client satisfaction scores.

EA Roadmap and Framework

As an enterprise architect, I worked on a special project assigned by the CIO. The project involved developing a future vision, conducting a gap analysis, and outlining a strategic and tactical direction roadmap for the upcoming 18 months. All the work focused on identifying areas of improvement in organizational maturity and addressing the rationalization and reduction of technical debt.
