Purpose

Reports to:  Director, Enterprise Business Solutions  

As a Business Solutions Architect, you will play an important role at the heart the Enterprise Business Solutions Center of Excellence.  As a Business Solution Architect, you will work with business and I.T team members across our diverse utilities and business areas to design integrated, enterprise grade solutions that will allow Liberty to meet and exceed its business objectives through our Customer First platform.   

Customer first encompasses a broad range of utility business functions and offers an exciting opportunity to work with a leading-edge, integrated SAP ERP platform.  

You’ll work collaboratively with Liberty IT as well as our stakeholders to translate business requirements into their optimal implementation and will work hands on with our business community as we support them in their journey of growth and adoption on this new platform. 
What you will need to be successful 

  • Be Data Driven– You must be able to give meaning to data. You enjoy investigating complex problems and making sense of information. You’re confident in your ability to communicate data and in using it to tell a story to improve business outcomes. 
  • Build Partnerships: You know that relationships and networks are essential to success. As such you will collaborate with key partners (e.g., Analytics, Enterprise Architecture, Business COE’s, IT Operations, Third Party Vendors etc) to assess current state features, application and process performances.  Work with the partners to enhance and leverage the strengths and roadmaps of the technologies in the platform.  
  • Entrepreneurial Minded -You must be able to thrive and succeed in an entrepreneurial environment, be able to define and establish processes and not be hindered by ambiguity or competing priorities. You thrive when you're empowered to take the lead, go above and beyond, and deliver results. You will inspire outcomes by making yourself heard. 

Accountabilities

  • Process and solution knowledge: You will utilize your industry and solution experience to develop a strong technology and functional understanding of the business processes and their implementation within their given domain.  
  • You will be an advocate to leverage solution capabilities and features: you will remain apprised with new features, functions and best practices for the technologies at play in their domain and recommend technology-driven improvements. 
  • Enable and Support Liberty Utilities IT & AMS Teams: Using your in-depth process and cross -application knowledge, you will engage with Liberty AMS teams to expedite triage and ensure fit-for-purpose enhancements that maintain solution integrity. You will support IT counterparts with business and process expertise to resolve incidents and service requests and deliver approved enhancements.  
  • Knowledge Retention & Documentation: You will be responsible for participating in the development and maintenance of solution and process documentation. In many cases, cohesive solution documentation will need to be created as program artifacts are taken over and prepared for steady state support of the applications and processes. 
  • Cutover Support: You will contribute domain specific readiness criteria and other artifacts that can be utilized by program teams to expedite implementation of future releases and improve cutover performance 
  • Hypercare Support: You will play an important role in hyper-care support and resolution activities and engage program or business subject matter experts as needed to achieve resolution. You will participate in service transition checklist development, checklist management and service transition readiness evaluations as required. 
  • Design Stewardship. For new solutions, following cutover, completion of hyper-care and transition to steady state support, you will participate in ongoing change management and solution architecture activities with a specific focus on maintaining alignment with Liberty enterprise architecture and standards, introduction of solution and industry best practice and anticipation of evolving business and regulatory requirements.  
  • Business Value Alignment: You are a key participant in the enhancement prioritization process and will, with your technology and process knowledge, ensure our technical solutions are ‘right-sized’ for the return on investment. 
  • Super User Training: You will participate in maintenance of the Liberty Super User network. Activities can include providing input on new training requirements, conduct training and hands on mentorship of the Liberty super user/process owner community.
