Major Service Impacting Events ..> Fragile Architecture and supporting Infrastructure causing avoidable Incidents >Constitutes a material business and operational risk and needs to be managed • Increasingly complex operating environment represents an ⇑ business risk to Celcom’s revenue generating and customer servicing capabilities .. • The fragility of core applications and services within Celcom represent an increasingly complex and risky operating environment materially affecting revenue generating and customer servicing activities. • A large portion of core applications (like OCS, ORP..) are custom built, and does not meet the operating characteristics and requirements of Celcom’s current and future service portfolio. Mitigation strategies are currently being assessed and developed to limit Celcom’s business exposure in the medium to long-term. • The core infrastructure foundation (systems, storage, backup..) is challenged by lack of cross architectural ‘application’ of technical characteristics and capabilities to sustain DR & BCP requirements. This has and will continue to compound Celcom’s response to such events. • In summary: the current service and application portfolio as well as the underlying technology architecture will require substantial change to sustain the future demands of Celcom’s operating requirement. ⇓ Revenue >RM1.5M ⇓ Revenue >RM5M

DC Infratsrutcure build and migration projects • The Program so far: • 1. Find DC host • scalable, available, manageable, resilient, cost effective • 2. Fit out DC space – • power, cooling, racks, communications, security • 3. Migrate systems, servers, storage to new DC ? • - Consolidation strategy • Requires a strategic solution which should be scalable, resilient, reliable • - Migration strategy • Requires a Tactical Solution to reduce the risk of outages/breakages and a Strategic Solution for the design of the new host environment to allow long term stability and operational maintenance. • - Decommissioning process & procedures • 4. Handover to Operations
ROI – Using a well difined solution for architecture and infrastructure Facilities Standards Control Operational stability Scalability Resilience Redundancy Improved time-to-market / implementation time Mobility (Risk Managed for Migrations) Sustainable Operational SLA’s
Required Outcome: Agreement to proceed with the Solutions Architecture approach to virtualisation Agreement to gather vendor quotations for minimal sized platforms across the four platform types – to start the “proof of concept” build Agreement to integrate the DC Leasing program of work with this solution approach and work towards delivering a strategic goal of scalable, stable and resilient virtual platforms. Agreement to set up regular reviews for this proposed project and make available funding to progress to a completed solution across all platforms.
