John Lewis Partnership

                 Incorporating vendor and contract management into business continuity planning

Speaker: John Roberts—enterprise architect,  John Lewis Partnership
Abstract: Planning for business continuity needs to take in many diverse aspects. From an IT support perspective, it is essential to understand the contractual conditions underlying IT assets. In tying contract and vendor information to architecture objects, IT planners can make informed decisions on architectural change as per contractual relations with IT suppliers and service providers and can align SLAs with the IT support required for business operations. IT planners can better mitigate risk when they know which contracts are relevant for which parts of the business, when contracts need to be extended or renewed, and when and how to change contracts to mitigate vendor-related risks. Find out in this session how the EA group at John Lewis Partnership uses centralized contract and vendor management to ensure business continuity.
