Onepoint Consulting used a structured methodology based on TOGAF to document the current business, Information (System & Data) and technology architecture. Frameworx from TMForum (https://www.tmforum.org/tm-forum-frameworx/) was used to define the target architecture. The models were analysed to identify the gaps and produce a list of prioritized business and technology initiatives and a high level transition plan. A cost was then assigned to build and operate the proposed initiatives.
The models of the current and target architecture, the transition roadmap and the total cost of ownership of implementing the roadmap enabled UK Broadband to decide strategies worth pursuing to meet its business goals and objectives. It enabled them to calculate the Return on Investment on their various strategies and make informed decision.
