The collaboration across the stakeholders will be to formulate and operate IT roadmap strategy, business requirement mapping, solutioning, and implementation on our apps platforms. The role will drive the lifecycle management of the SAP (and beyond SAP) estate including Service Operations. Service Operations will be as per ITIL framework and will be enabled via supplier contracts (SLAs/KPIs) and Upfield’s policies & procedures. The service operations will include capabilities around incident management, change & release management, test management, landscape management among other ITIL processes.

The role will ensure that Upfield’s IT strategy is driven via our Enterprise Applications. This will involve collaboration within IT Leadership Team (LT) across Enterprise Infrastructure (for patching, capacity, and performance management), Information Security, Enterprise Architecture (for platform strategy), Office of CIO (for project and portfolio delivery), and Business Relationship Management (for local project delivery) to achieve the objectives.
