  • It’s a long-term partnership
  • No standard definition
  • Role of coordinating different suppliers and service management layers
  • ‘Towers’ – suppliers by functions
  • Need solid theoretical framework underpinning
  • Even if no official role somebody still has to do it
  • Challenge is finding a universally recognised language
  • Could vendors say their tool is ‘now with service integration’?
  • Not a technical problem – it’s understanding what’s needs to happen when & who needs to see it
  • Challenge to coordinate suppliers when legacy contracts apply
  • Recruitment – different skill level & experience needed
  • Not just about investing to manage failure but how much additional value / return
  • IT spent too long teaching customers to ask for technical SLAs
  • Topic need to revisit – has only just been touched on
  • Jaguar-Land Rover story needs to be heard
