                                               Program: Verizon Advanced Data Inc (VADI) – One Entity / SSP (2002-2005)

                                               Overview of the Engagement:
                                               The merger of two telecommunication giants, Verizon and GTE resulted in two dis-
                                               similar broadband infrastructures, that were difficult and expensive to manage. To
                                               improve customer focus, reduce churn, increase revenue (improve time to market),
                                               reduce operational costs, Verizon embarked on a multi-year, multi-million dollar
                                               project to integrate the two infrastructures. There was a need to understand the two
                                               existing infrastructures and develop an comprehensive integration roadmap.

                                               Value Delivered:

                                               BusinessOne consultant was engaged in the following:

                                               • Developing IT Knowledge Base for Verizon Broadband East (Verizon) and West
                                                 (GTE). The Knowledge Base was a web based application tool that provided
                                                 interactive access to current and target architectures for both the broadband
                                                 infrastructures. The tool provided information at the application, interface,
                                                 hardware and network levels.

                                               • Developing architectural impacts at the enterprise level

                                               • Developing Integration Roadmap

                                               • Developing cross portfolio architecture

                                               • Developing end-to-end process flows


                                               The effort culminated in putting the Verizon “One Entity / SSP” project on a fast
                                               track by streamlining process, reducing system redundancy and consequently
                                               improving customer focus, reducing churn, increasing revenue (improving time to
                                               market), reducing operational costs


                                                                                                                             next
