The Service Delivery Manager plays an integral and wide-ranging role in the delivery of the services provided by the MST to the Mercury User Community.
An Service Delivery Manager is required for each of the business process or functional areas which form the backbone of the Mercury solution, namely Finance, Procurement, Service Delivery / Engagement Management and Customer Relationship Management.
As such, the Service Delivery Manager should have deep techno-functional experience in one or more of the in scope functional areas.
This experience should include specific and detailed knowledge of configuration in SAP, gained through both program implementation and support, and the technical integration of SAP with other applications, including data transfer and interface management via SAP PI / PO and other middleware solutions.
The Service Delivery Manager will have full responsibility for the end-to-end business process chains, in the functional area for which they are accountable, which are managed and executed via the Mercury solution and more particularly within SAP.
From a day-to-day operational support perspective, the Service Delivery Manager should ensure the timely and satisfactory resolution of production impacting incidents within their own functional area or where cross-
functional incidents required their input. The Service Delivery Manager must work closely with the functionally aligned / process aligned support teams which form part of the service delivered by the AMS vendor.
Similarly, they must work closely with the EY Technology teams, where there are incidents involving applications which are dependent or impacted by the Mercury solution.
As such, the Service Delivery Manager will take the lead role in the restoration of service and investigation of incidents with of critical or high priority and must ensure that specific actions are agreed and undertaken to determine the root cause and then deliver the relevant fix safely and without impact on the production environment.
As the deployment of Mercury continues beyond the pilot phase, the Service Delivery Manager will work closely with the Product Managers within the MST and relevant representatives from the business community and the GLOBAL PROCESS OWNERs to define the road map and portfolio for their own functional or process area.
The Service Delivery Manager will ensure that solutions proposed by the Product Managers are technicallyviable and do not have any adverse impact from a technical integration perspective.
They must ensure that a full impact assessment is conducted and co-ordinate the solutioning and delivery by the AMS vendor where appropriate, working closely with EY Technologyon cross-application delivery.
The Service Delivery Manager will work closely with the Service Manager regarding service performance for their own functional area, agreeing action plans with the AMS functional team, as required, to help prioritize incident backlog and develop demand plans for the delivery of service requests, maintenance requests and enhancement requests.
