WLMS platform – vision & strategy • Single development shop for all WLMS stacks: • Responsible for all delivery of WLMS IT capability across the following functions: • E2E delivery, E2E design, component design, component test & design & development • Oversight of supplier(s) – thicker layer of BT governance driving right suppliers • Strategic goals: • Maximise reuse opportunities across contracts • Exploit synergies with other platforms for efficiency over time – balance with agility & speed required on contract delivery • WLMS stack rationalisation down to single shared strategic multi tenanted instance – shared across CPs with optimised running & delivery costs

What does this mean for people moving to BTID? What team will MSL staff be Joining? • The WLMS platform team sits within BTIDs global platforms unit and is responsible for overseeing the design, development & test for BTs WLMS system stack. These systems underpins the Lead to Cash (L2C) and Trouble to Resolve (T2R) journeys for several broadband, calls and lines communication providers • The team, consisting of 16 BT FTE complemented by a number of contractors; We are geographically dispersed team - but a focal point currently is St Albans given the current focus on Harlequins delivery Why joining together makes sense • This moves the MSL design, development & test team into BTID, which aligns with BT’s strategic operating model for this type of work. • Richard Linstead will move into Jonathan Cupples (WLMS platform) bar two individuals moving to BT Operate. Tony Thacker will move to report to Ian Turkington – to create a single Design and architecture team for all of our WLMS platforms • The team will begin to become more integrated during the course of 12/13 and the MSL team will start to begin working on WLMS2 • Since the as-is stack is to be decommissioned (following customer migration) the move will ensure the team are utilised on the to-be stack in a gradual and controlled way, and will remove any uncertainty for the people within this business unit.
