Action

Show / Hide Full Details


Situation
The levels of information security risk across federated SABMiller's landscape varied. There was lack of consistently applied policies and information security measures. The information security awareness amongst the company leadership was inadequate.

Task
To stabilise the risk profile at an acceptable level and ensure that the risk level stays so in the environment of ever-changing security threats.

Action
Defined the strategy for improvement of SABMiller’s information security broadly based on ITSF domains and benchmarks across all 70 SABMiller's markets. This was overseen by the Global Executive Committee and successfully implemented in 2012-2015.

Results
The implementation brought SABMiller from the tail of FMCG companies to a pragmatic leadership position in information security.

Show / Hide Full Details


Situation
SABMiller knew that consumer and customer intimacy is one of the key pillars of its marketing and sales strategy. SABMiller Global Executive Committee decided to embrace digital technology to improve engagement with its customers and consumers.

Task
The top-level direction required technology leadership, strategy, improvement of digital capabilities within SABMiller and reference architecture. My Strategy & Architecture team partnered with Marketing to deliver those building blocks.

Action
My team and I delivered strategy and subsequently architecture for the digital transformation. We provided thought leadership and led the architecture delivery for consumer and customer engagement, as well as the analytics platform.

Results
SABMiller dramatically improved its intimacy with the consumers and customers as well as the efficiency of its consumer- and customer-facing operations. A proof of concept on Marketing Spend Optimisation ran in Italy paid for the full implementation project before its go-live. Our consumer analytics platform won the prestigious 2015 Business Technology Leadership Award for Business Analytics from Ventana Research.
BUSINESS CAPABILITY MAPPING LED TO PRIORITISATION OF $400M DEMAND INTO $100M PORTFOLIO - Case Study: 4 of 4.

Show / Hide Full Details


Situation
SABMiller's investment into technology was directed towards the development and deployment of the Global Template. Once the implementation covered countries producing 60% of Net Producer Revenue, it became essential to bring the investment to a sustainable level. However, the markets were starved of investment due to focus on Global Template and the business demand exploded to $400m.

Task
A method was needed to prioritise investments bringing the most strategic benefits to the company, taking the $400m demand to $100m portfolio.

Action
My team and I piloted and then delivered a business capability mapping establishing a clear link between business strategy, drivers and goals and individual technology-related investments.
We delivered business improvement roadmaps for global business functions and across business regions. On the back of this, I implemented architecture governance ensuring that individual projects adhere to SABMiller's strategy and follow architecture standards.

Results
$400m demand prioritised into a $100m investment portfolio with a clear connection to business goals. Business capability mapping became the default engagement platform between the IT Business Partners and the business leadership, providing Lingua Franca across functions and markets.
