6 What does this mean for people moving to BTID? What team will MSL staff be Joining?The WLMS platform team sits within BTIDs global platforms unit and is responsible for overseeing the design, development & test for BTs WLMS system stack. These systems underpins the Lead to Cash (L2C) and Trouble to Resolve (T2R) journeys for several broadband, calls and lines communication providersThe team, consisting of 16 BT FTE complemented by a number of contractors; We are geographically dispersed team - but a focal point currently is St Albans given the current focus on Harlequins deliveryWhy joining together makes senseThis moves the MSL design, development & test team into BTID, which aligns with BT’s strategic operating model for this type of work.Richard Linstead will move into Jonathan Cupples (WLMS platform) bar two individuals moving to BT Operate. Tony Thacker will move to report to Ian Turkington – to create a single Design and architecture team for all of our WLMS platformsThe team will begin to become more integrated during the course of 12/13 and the MSL team will start to begin working on WLMS2Since the as-is stack is to be decommissioned (following customer migration) the move will ensure the team are utilised on the to-be stack in a gradual and controlled way, and will remove any uncertainty for the people within this business unit.
