- Day to Day
- Defects will come through the ticketing system as well as directly from internal teams and external vendors. First, Root Cause Analysis is usually already done by the incident management team, however this person will need to ensure ALL info needed for a true RCA activity is there. They must understand the RCA process, how to analyze a defect, etc. Once the analysis of the defect is complete, this resource will then coordinate with the necessary teams and 3rd party vendors to coordinate the fix. Lastly, they will coordinate the testing, validation, and fix of the defect. If a defect is large enough, it becomes a mini-project in which this resource will see issues to completion-coordinating all aspects of the SDLC. Depending on the size of the defect, they would need to coordinate the fix within the next monthly release of the application, or a hot fix they can knock out weekly.
- Full life cycle of an 'issue or problem' -
- Get a detailed idea and description of the actual problem from the person that opened the case
- At that point, determine which teams/groups/individuals needs to be contacted brought into the resolution process. Can be as easy an engaging AMDOCS, or as complex as involving retail ops, AMDOCS, and various other teams in a room to get this resolved.
- This person get to the root cause, not just putting a band-aid on an issue. This will be a 'project' to get to the root of it and provide a solution leveraging the correct vendor, internal teams, etc.
- once the issues is identified and a plan is in place to fix it, this person will follow and drive this issue through testing, and then releasing into production.
- Issues can range in importance and how critical
- Could be anything from a link not working on an internal website, all the way to reporting being incorrect that is reported to shareholders.
- There was an issue migrating customers into the customer portal. Both the web and call center teams reporting this issue. It became a defect. They got with the 3rd party vendor who owns the portal software to figure out why this issue was happening. They figured out the issue, fixed it, then went back to the business to tell them the problem, how it was fixed, and the solution that should prevent it from happening again. This team has morphed into project management, resources are taking issue/problems from start to finish, and it's basically at project. These issues/problems are 'high value impact'. which means they have financial impact, customer experience, fraud, security, call drivers, and escalated problem/issues.
