Global MI Design and Delivery Lead is a new role within Air BP’s Global SAP Deployment (GSD) team. It has been created with the purpose of delivering Air BP’s MI, Decision Support requirements, not just for those countries where GSD has been deployed, but incorporating the MI needs of a global business operating across a number of different ERP platforms and associated applications.
Following the deployment of GSD into Rhine, a key learning has been that the business has limited GSD MIDS and Performance Management expertise, against a background of new and complex processes and functionality introduced to the SAP template for and with the Rhine Fuels Business. Meaningful Management Information (MI) remains a serious gap especially for local airport profitability analysis and global aggregation and analysis at the customer/segment level; this role will close those gaps.
The Global MI design and delivery lead will:
Lead the development of the end state vision, roadmap and business case for MI and Decision Support to underpin the performance management and business optimisation in Air BP working with the PUs, Functions and IT&S to gather requirements and agree standard data definitions considering both GSD and other ERP environments across Air globally
lead the delivery of the GSD template MI and Performance Management tools and processes in deployed and “in-flight” countries
build and develop MI capability across Air BP where GSD has been deployed.
analyse, challenge and recommend change requests to the MI and Performance Management elements of the template
understand the requirements and demands of the Air BP strategic agenda and its potential impact on the MI template and processes - be it from new products, new offers, new markets, new digital technologies or changing business needs
support the rollout and stabilisation of SAP BW and ISP MI (IMI) tools and reporting capability in deployed countries and provide assurance that the Air BP team is able to produce accurate MI that can be reconciled with the financial reporting
be accountable for taking the learnings from earlier deployments into future deployments
work closely with colleagues in the Fuels/GSD business MI/Performance teams across Downstream to ensure alignment with the overall GSD programme, sharing of best practice and leverage of the standard template.
