EY Service Delivery Manager (S2P) in Argentina

Title: Service Delivery Manager (S2P)

Location: Argentina

Job Number: ARG00145

The Service Delivery Manager or Functional Support Lead plays an integral and wide-ranging role in the delivery of the services provided by the MST to the Mercury User Community. A Functional Support Lead is required for each of the business process or functional areas which form the backbone of the Mercury solution, namely Finance, Procurement, Service Delivery / Engagement Management and Customer Relationship Management. As such, the Functional Support Lead should have deep techno-functional experience in one or more of the in scope functional areas. This experience should include specific and detailed knowledge of configuration in SAP, gained through both program implementation and support, and the technical integration of SAP with other applications, including data transfer and interface management via SAP PI/PO and other middleware solutions.

The Functional Support Lead will have full responsibility for the end-to-end business process chains, in the functional area for which they are accountable, which are managed and executed via the Mercury solution and more particularly within SAP. From a day-to-day operational support perspective, the Functional Support Lead should ensure the timely and satisfactory resolution of production impacting incidents within their own functional area or where cross-functional incidents required their input. The Functional Support Lead must work closely with the functionally aligned / process aligned support teams which form part of the service delivered by the AMS vendor. Similarly, they must work closely with the IT Services Portfolio Service Delivery teams, where there are incidents involving applications which are dependent or impacted by the Mercury solution. As such, the Functional Support Lead will take the lead role in the restoration of service and investigation of incidents with of critical or high priority and must ensure that specific actions are agreed and undertaken to determine the root cause and then deliver the relevant fix safely and without impact on the production environment.

As the deployment of Mercury continues beyond the pilot phase, the Functional Support Lead will work closely with the Product Manager within the MST and relevant representatives from the business community and the GPOs to define the road map and portfolio for their own functional or process area. The Functional Support Lead will ensure that solutions proposed by the Product Manager are technically viable and do not have any adverse impact from a technical integration perspective. They must ensure that a full impact assessment is conducted and co-ordinate the solutioning and delivery by the AMS vendor where appropriate, working closely with IT Services Portfolio Service Delivery on cross-application delivery.

The Functional Support Lead will work closely with the Service Manager regarding service performance for their own functional area, agreeing action plans with the AMS functional team, as required, to help prioritize incident backlog and develop demand plans for the delivery of service requests, maintenance requests and enhancement requests.
