Telstra gets two more years to upgrade or sell its residential fibre networks – Telco/ISP- Tempemail – Blog – 10 minute

Users in Telstra fibre areas face up to two more years with limited retail choices and service quality issues after the government decided Telstra could stay exempt from rules that would otherwise force it to make its fibre areas wholesale only and open access.
The move represents a reprieve for Telstra, one that was largely opposed by NBN Co and also – it seems – by the government, which rebuked Telstra over its inaction.
Telstra either needs to upgrade its fibre networks – branded ‘Velocity’ estates and the South Brisbane exchange area – or sell them, most likely to NBN Co.
It was meant to have done so by July this year, but applied to the government in April for more time, adding that it would “be the last time we seek an extension.” [pdf]
The government will make sure of that, confirming that once the new extension expires in July 2022, there will be no more time. 
“In deciding to extend the exemption, the [Communications] Minister noted weak competition on Telstra’s Velocity networks,” new exemption documents state.
“The decision to grant the exemption reflects that Telstra’s continued operation of Velocity networks is required to prevent service disruption to end-users in these areas. 
“The Minister acknowledged the frustrations about service quality apparent in public submissions received, but noted that maintaining services to end-users was of utmost importance.”
The government was worried that Telstra would simply switch off its fibre networks if they couldn’t be upgraded or sold, “which would represent a poor outcome for end users.”
Telstra had sought an extension out to July 2023, but the government gave it two years instead, and now requires six-monthly checkups on status.
“The limited duration of the exemption is intended to provide Telstra with a final window of opportunity to either become compliant … or sell the network to an operator who can comply,” the government said.
“In this context, the Minister took into account advice from Telstra that it intends to make no more extension requests.”
Telstra’s reprieve is more generous than NBN Co had believed fair. 
NBN Co took a decidedly dim view of the need to give Telstra more time to sort out its residential fibre assets.
“While there were valid reasons for the exemptions to be granted in 2012, it is important that the exemptions expire within a reasonable timeframe,” NBN Co had said. [pdf]
NBN Co noted Telstra had already been granted extensions in 2013, 2015 and 2018.
It argued a further exemption “is to the detriment of end users connected to those networks who are not currently receiving the benefit of greater retail competition afforded by … government policy.”
“It has been clear government policy since 2011, and from when the exemptions were first granted in 2012, that Telstra would have to sell the networks or otherwise comply with the regulatory framework,” NBN Co argued. 
“An additional extension of three years should not be required given the 10 years that has already been had to prepare for this event.”
NBN Co had supported only an extension of up to 12 months.
Telstra said its South Brisbane fibre network was only ever designed as a public switched telephone network (PSTN) replacement, and would require significant upgrades to be able to support NBN-equivalent services.
Its Velocity estates are designed for internet and phone services. Fibre was deployed when the areas were newly-built.
Telstra disputed that there is “weak” competition in Velocity estates, stating in its own submission that “there are a number of active RSPs offering services in the Velocity estates other than Telstra.”

Telstra sets $65 a month as minimum spend to get 5G access – Telco/ISP- Tempemail – Blog – 10 minute

Telstra is set to reshape the way it sells 5G services once a year-long free trial wraps up today.
The telco had said last year that it would eventually allow users of its two most expensive mobile plans to access 5G at no extra charge, while users on smaller plans would be charged an extra $15 a month.
It has since decided not to charge a “separate fee” for 5G; however, it will put up prices on all mobile plans by between $5 and $15 a month, and the cheapest plan is no longer 5G-capable at all.
“Since we launched Australia’s first 5G network just over 12 months ago, our customers have really embraced more data intensive uses of their mobile connection such as streaming services, video conferencing, virtual reality and mobile gaming,” consumer and small business group executive Michael Ackland said in a statement.
“That is why following the conclusion of the 12 month 5G free trial period on 1 July 2020 we have decided not to charge a separate fee for 5G, and will now be including 5G access for customers on our medium plan as well as our top two tier plans.” 

(Above: Telstra’s new mobile plans)
Up until now, even customers of its smallest plan – with 30GB of quota for $50 a month – have been able to access 5G services under the free trial.
That plan will go up to $55 a month with 40GB of quota but will be 4G only.The medium plan, with 60GB for $60 a month, goes to 80GB for $65 a month and now includes 5G (whereas before it would have been a $15 a month add-on).
The two biggest plans were already in line to receive 5G services for the same price:

the 100GB ($80/month) plan moves to 120GB ($85/month)
the 150GB plan ($100/month) is now 180GB ($115/month)

Telstra said the increase in quota across all plans was made in recognition that “the lives of Australians had fundamentally changed in recent months.” 
“We know now, more than ever, with many of our daily routines quickly moving online for learning, work and entertainment, it is critical our customers have access to more data, and reliable, high quality connectivity both in-and-out of the home,” Ackland said. 
“That is why we are announcing that from 1 July, consumer and small business customers will benefit from a data increase of up to 30GB depending on their plan, with 5G access included on our medium plan and above.”
Ackland said existing customers would be “progressively” migrated over to the new plans “over the next three months”.
Those that moved by September 30 would be given “credit to help offset the increase for the first 12 months.”
“Eligible customers will be contacted by Telstra about this offer before this date,” Telstra said.

Siemens chases Telstra customers over alleged cracked software use – Software – Telco/ISP- Tempemail – Blog – 10 minute

Siemens Industry Software has moved to unmask the owners of 20 users of IP addresses within Telstra’s ranges that it believes used cracked versions of its product lifecycle management (PLM) software.
The industrial software maker obtained a court order on Friday last week requiring Telstra to disclose the identities of account holders that used certain IP addresses captured by an anti-piracy mechanism in the PLM software code.
It also gained approval on the text of a form letter to be sent to the Telstra subscribers that seeks a settlement under threat of legal proceedings being filed against them.
“Siemens contends that it may have a right to obtain relief against 20 prospective respondents for infringement of copyright in certain computer software that it owns,” the judgment states.
The software maker’s interest is with its NX and Solid Edge products, which are both used for computer-aided design, and form part of a broader PLM suite.
“Representative bundles” of the licensing costs for the software and a year of maintenance ranged from $88,440.47 to $337,514.45.
Siemens said it had identified IP addresses associated with the alleged use of cracked versions of its software through a feature in the software called the automatic reporting function or ARF.
“[ARF is] embedded in each of the asserted software products. It cannot be removed or ‘switched off’ from the asserted software,” the judgment states.
“The ARF is capable of identifying the computer on which unlicensed copies of the asserted software are used by collecting data related to the source of that use, when that computer is connected to the internet. 
“The primary method of copyright infringement about which Siemens is concerned is where the alleged infringer uses versions of the asserted software that have been ‘cracked’ or tampered with by a person or (more likely) a company who is licensed to use some, but not all of the asserted software. 
“The cracking allows the infringer to have full access to all of the modules of the asserted software without having paid to licence them.”
Siemens said that while sometimes the data in an ARF report “is sufficient to identify the person responsible for cracking the software, … on other occasions, the details are insufficient, and only a general company or email domain is given (such as “telstra.com.au”, or “outlook.com”) and the only unique identifier captured within the report is an IP address.”
“If a static IP address has been assigned to a specific entity, rather than an internet service provider (ISP), then a search of the publicly available register of IP addresses will resolve to a particular entity that is likely to be the alleged infringer,” the judgment states, citing evidence provided by Siemens. 
“If the IP address resolves to an ISP, then the alleged infringer is … likely to be a subscriber of the ISP.”
Siemens asserted that the ARF logs would be enough for an ISP – in this case, Telstra – to “be able to identify the alleged infringer of the asserted software.”
The software maker had identified “20 potential infringing users of the asserted software who are Telstra subscribers.”
Written communications from Telstra were tabled in court, saying that the telco would act on a “coercive instrument” such as a court order, but that it would otherwise not disclose customer data due to privacy.”
Siemens also provided an undertaking to the court that it would “not pursue any action against any individual who has not made commercial use of any of the asserted software products”.

Telstra taps UTS to upskill workforce with micro-credentials – Training & Development- Tempemail – Blog – 10 minute

The University of Technology Sydney has partnered with Telstra to deliver a suite of micro-credentials for the telco’s staff and broader community.
Over 80 Telstra employees will be the first to experience UTS’ inaugural micro-credential offering, comprising online courses on data analysis, artificial intelligence and machine learning.
The three eight-week programs were developed in conjunction with Telstra on the back of a deal the telco signed with multiple universities in November last year to provide continuous training and development opportunities to staff amid Telstra’s continued restructuring of its workforce.
The first three micro credentials are:

Data analysis foundations – understand the value and power of data, master key concepts and terminology, explore clustering and analysis techniques, and begin analysing and visualising data sets
Advanced data analytics – explore research and practical techniques in data analytics, covering the knowledge and capacity to initiate and conduct data mining research and development projects
Introduction to machine learning – basic learning models, including decision trees and linear families, demonstrate the theory of machine learning as well as its real-world application.

The subjects will involve five hours of learning a week for eight weeks, which includes a weekly live online online tutorial, and a further two weeks for assessment completion and submission.
Courses will open to the broader public from July, aligning with the federal government’s push for micro-credentials to play a part in COVID-19 recovery efforts by helping struggling industries and retrenched workers reskill for new jobs.
Alex Badenoch, Telstra’s group executive for transformation, communications and people, said that building a pipeline of technology talent in Australia is an “urgent issue” pre-COVID, with an expected shortfall of ICT workers estimated at 60,000 over the next five years.
“We now need to boost numbers at a much faster rate to support our nation’s transforming businesses and the digitisation of our economy,” Badenoch said.
UTS deputy vice-chancellor Glenn Wightwick said the university is pleased to contributed its research and academic expertise to support skill development.
“In offering micro-credentials for the first time, UTS also looks forward to helping to boost skill levels in the broader technology community and providing Australian business with expanded pools of talented workers in critical areas,” Wightwick said.
The university is also working to develop further micro-credentials, and is already in discussions with other enterprises about participation in the program.

Telstra automates the way it documents internal processes – Software- Tempemail – Blog – 10 minute

Telstra is looking to automate the way it finds and documents internal processes, which could allow it to locate opportunities for improvement much faster.
Head of intelligent automation Tim Barnes told the Blue Prism World conference overnight that automated discovery would supplement his team’s existing approach in manually scoping out processes that are deemed good candidates for robotic process automation (RPA).
So far, the intelligent automation centre of expertise, which Barnes leads, has automated 170 processes and delivered between 40,000 and 50,000 hours of staff time a year back to the telco’s different business units.
“We’ve certainly reached scale,” Barnes said.
“We’ve delivered bots into every functional unit within Telstra.
“Most of our work is now in our Global Business Services so in shared services: legal, procurement, activations, provisioning, and field services. That’s where probably the majority of the opportunity is [to automate] boring, repetitive, manual work. 
“We probably do 70 percent of our time in Global Business Services now.”
Barnes’ team engages with different parts of the Telstra business, offering a full suite of intelligent automation services and training, with the business unit picking up more of the workload over time.
“The whole premise of starting the CoE was to really empower the business – to take these capabilities around automation out to the business and teach them how to use these tools so that they can solve their own business problems,” Barnes said.
“Essentially we go in, we look across the business and see what the opportunity is within their pipeline. 
“We then scope those opportunities out, write the relevant documentation, do the development for them, and support that on a centralised platform, using a centralised governance and design authority.”
While this had worked well so far, Barnes said the scoping work was manually intensive. 
“When we first started doing automation from a CoE perspective, we would take an organisational diagnostic approach – essentially going in, meeting with the executives, and then doing almost a ‘speed dating’ of all of their processes, looking at all of their processes at a very high level, and really just assessing what the automation potential and the value of the work effort involved,” he said.
“Essentially we’d come up with a list of 40 or 50 potential opportunities. We’d look at what’s going to create the most value, and how hard is it going to be to deliver, and then just pick them off. 
“It’s quite a simple approach. 
Even pre-COVID, it was challenging for subject matter experts (SMEs) to come to terms with all possible variations of a process to then be in a position to work out which parts might be candidates for automation.
“Think about PSTN lines, for example,” he said.
“You can have thousands of different variations to that type of activation. No one’s ever going to know all those different processes.”
Post-COVID, SME time is much harder to secure internally as they juggle competing priorities. 
This has led Barnes’ team – and Telstra generally – to start experimenting with automated discovery tools for this work.
“As a big enterprise, we’ve been around for a long time and we have a lot of processes that have changed and morphed over the years,” Barnes said.
“Understanding our own processes and having them all documented is a challenge for every big enterprise, put it that way.
“We’re really looking at tools now where we can automate the discovery of our processes, where we can document them at a work instruction level so we can really see where the variation is in each process and understand where the wastage is in a process.”
Barnes said he did not see automated discovery as “a silver bullet”.
“It’s only going to get us partially there, but I think it will save ourselves and the business a lot of time,” he said.
“COVID has really impacted the business, and SME time has become a real premium as we work to keep services going for customers.
“Finding an automated way of discovering processes is really important so we can document them and we can really make sure that they’re re-engineered if required. 
“Fixing the processes up before you automate them is a really good idea.”
Barnes said that in the immediate future, process automations were likely to involve newer techniques that took advantage of machine learning, optical character recognition (OCR) and natural language processing (NLP).
“The ones that were really playing with at the moment are chatbots – I hate the name chatbot – but being able to use an automated way of responding to customers via text, voice or email is obviously a big area for us,” Barnes said.
“[It’s about] being able to respond to a customer at any given moment and then being able to pass that to a bot that can then fulfill the transaction once we’re confident we understand what the customer requires.”
Meanwhile, OCR could be used “to understand and digitise some content … from a PDF or an email and be able to apply some logic around that using NLP, which can then give you an idea of what the customer’s intent is of what they’re requesting.”
Similarly, that combination of techniques could be useful in taking a purchase order, “and then based on your machine learning capabilities, being able to understand who that’s from, the invoice amount and then automate the management of that purchase order or invoice.”

Telstra loses its Asia Pacific CISO – Training & Development – Security- Tempemail – Blog – 10 minute

Telstra has lost Asia Pacific chief information security officer Berin Lautenbach, one of two high profile departures from its security function in recent months.
Lautenbach announced his departure on LinkedIn, saying he had finished up on Wednesday this week and would spend “the next few months with a focus on family” before deciding on where to head next.
“It has been an absolute privilege to run the cyber security team at Telstra,” Lautenbach said.
“I’ve learned more about security and leadership than I ever hoped for when I first started and I’ve had the chance to work with some of the smartest people in the industry.”
A Telstra spokesperson confirmed Lautenbach’s departure to iTnews.
“Berin Lautenbach resigned in March to spend more time with his family, but stayed on to assist with handover,” the spokesperson said.
“Recruitment is currently underway to find his replacement.”
Lautenbach is the second high-profile departure from Telstra’s cyber security function in the past couple of months, after Grant McKechnie left in March.
McKechnie had been Telstra’s general manager for its cyber security operations and threat management for almost three years.
His responsibilities covered Telstra’s cyber threat response centre and a Canberra-based cyber security operations centre (CSOC).
It is understood that Lautenbach and McKechnie’s departures are not related.
However, McKechnie’s departure appears to be linked to an internal restructure.
“Structural changes were made earlier this year to better align the team and Grant McKechnie departed shortly after this,” Telstra’s spokesperson said.
McKechnie has since landed at drinks retailer Endeavour Group, home of brands including Dan Murphy’s, Cellarmasters and BWS.

NBN should consider buying fibre networks from Telstra, Labor says | Technology – Blog – 10 minute

The government-owned Tempemail Broadband Network should consider buying fibre networks from Telstra and other fibre operators across Australia covering up to 300,000 homes, Labor has said.
Last month, NBN Co announced it had managed to raise an extra $4.1bn in private debt facility, pushing the total debt to be taken on by the company to $55bn.
NBN Co has said this extra money could be used for “strategic” investments after the rollout is completed at the end of this month.
It comes as NBN has revealed it had already been in discussions with Telstra to potentially buy the company’s South Brisbane fibre network and new housing estate Velocity networks that cover about 45,000 homes.
Telstra received an exemption from having to offer an NBN-like service on the network in 2012, on the expectation that the network would be duplicated by NBN Co in 2013.
The Coalition changed NBN policy in 2013, and this area was declared adequately served, meaning NBN Co did not build a network in South Brisbane.
Residents within the network have complained the prices for broadband on the Telstra network are as much as $20 per month higher than an equivalent service on the NBN.

Several users on the broadband enthusiast website Whirlpool have also complained about low upload speeds on the services. The 100 megabits per second (Mbps) download plan only has 5Mbps upload speeds, compared with 40Mbps on the NBN.
The exemption granted to Telstra was due to expire this month. However, in a submission Telstra has asked for it to be extended while it was still deciding what to do with the networks.
“Telstra is committed to exiting the operation of residential and small business fixed access networks within NBN Co’s fixed line network.
“To that end, Telstra engaged with NBN Co and participated in good faith discussions regarding the sale of certain of the [fibre-to-the-premises networks] over a significant period of time.”
Telstra said it was “continuing to explore a number of options” around the networks. When asked to comment on whether a sale was being considered, both NBN Co and Telstra declined to comment.
Labor’s shadow communications spokeswoman, Michelle Rowland, told Guardian Australia NBN Co should look at options to bring the Telstra networks, and new housing networks owned by Opticomm, into the NBN.
“If NBN providers could deliver services over the Velocity network it would expand choice for households and reduce internet prices,” she said.
 “Bringing Opticomm into the fold could also give NBN Co access to sprawling fibre assets in outer suburban and regional centres, including the ability to grow its revenue streams by serving a greater share of new housing estates.”
Rowland said the company should see whether its systems can integrate into the existing systems used by Telstra or Opticomm, or consider buying out the networks, provided it is value for money and NBN does not already have infrastructure.  
“Ultimately, this is about improving choice for consumers and creating options for future service improvement in the regions and the suburbs.”
A 2019 analysis of Telstra’s fibre footprint by the Australian Communications Consumer Alliance Network (Accan) found over five years people had paid an extra $900 to $1,200 for internet, and many of those were likely vulnerable consumers, with 1,065 age pensioners, 621 disability support pensioners, and 746 low-income families on family tax benefit A.
Labor’s MP for Griffith, which covers South Brisbane, said the Telstra network had been “a deep and ongoing source of frustration for the community” and customers deserved a choice in broadband provider.
A spokeswoman for the communications minister, Paul Fletcher, said the assets would be valuable but it was up to Telstra, NBN Co and other interested parties to come to a commercial agreement.
While NBN Co is currently considering buying networks from Telstra, there is the possibility Telstra could then buy the whole NBN company from the government in the future.
Last month the minister appeared more open to the idea of Telstra’s wholesale company InfraCo eventually owning NBN Co than he had in the past, provided Telstra spun off InfraCo.
“I’ll leave it to Telstra’s bankers and lawyers to dream up structures. But the position is clear, if you operate retail telecommunication services, there’s a barrier that applies to your acquiring NBN. If you don’t, then that particular barrier does not apply,” he told the AFR.
“No doubt Telstra is very well placed to employ high-priced legal and investment banking talent should they be interested in pursuing the matter.”
Fletcher’s spokeswoman said the commercial negotiations had “very little to do” with the potential future “market structures” of the NBN.

Telstra CEO wants NBN upgrade paths reflected in govt policy – Telco/ISP- Tempemail – Blog – 10 minute

Telstra CEO Andy Penn wants a “long term” strategy for Australian telecommunications to be developed with government, spelling out upgrade paths for the NBN and removing barriers to 5G and edge compute deployments.
Penn laid out a broad policy wishlist on Monday, in which he sought to use the restart from COVID-related lockdowns as a springboard for change.
In particular, Penn saw opportunities to develop digital technologies in the post-COVID era, to “reform telecommunications”, and to bolster investment in and attention around security risks.
Telecommunications, he said, was the “connective tissue” that held businesses and communities together through the lockdown.
But as the NBN neared completion (outside of premises considered difficult to connect) and the mobile industry prepared for the move to 5G, Penn advocated a need to review the policy settings around telecommunications more broadly with an eye to the future.
“We need a long term strategy for telecommunications in Australia,” Penn said.
“If the acceleration of the digital economy is crucial to a fast recovery, which I believe it is, then telecommunications is now arguably Australia’s most important infrastructure to this digital recovery. 
“It is also crucial therefore that we have the policies and regulatory framework fit for purpose and pro-investment for the sector.”
Penn continued: “If ever there was a moment for all of us to feel unconstrained by the shackles of the past, past decisions, past policies, past investments it is now. 
“We sit at the dawn of 5G, the NBN rollout finishes next month, the emergence of edge compute – these are all significant technologies that will play a crucial role in supporting the digitisation of our economy.”
Penn said there was a need to accelerate the rollout of new telecommunications infrastructure and capacity.
That would likely include codifying upgrade paths for the NBN access technologies. These have been hotly debated over the years, though there is no real roadmap for what the NBN will look like once it moves from ‘build’ to ‘operate’.
“What is the technology upgrade path for the NBN now the great milestone of its rollout is within grasp?” Penn said.
“How do we ensure people in regional and remote Australia can experience the same benefits as people in the major centres particularly at a time when living regionally is a more realistic option for those previously constrained by work to be living in the city?  
“With the acceleration of the digital economy and online service provision how do we ensure our more vulnerable citizens can not just participate, but benefit from these changes?
“These are all very big questions but I cannot think of a more important time to be asking them. 
“The success of our telecommunications networks in Australia over the next decade will significantly influence the success of our economy and our nation, and it’s crucial that we have the policies in place to support them.”

Telstra 5G clocks 157 Mbps on average, says Opensignal – Telco/ISP- Tempemail – Blog – 10 minute

Telstra’s 5G service is hitting average download speeds of 157 Mbps according to Opensignal’s latest survey, placing it above average among the pack of telcos offering 5G services.
The true 5G speed king is American telco Verizon, which uses high-frequency spectrum in the 28 and 39 GHz millimetre wave bands.
The mmWave frequencies means Verizon 5G users can enjoy downloads speeds in excess of 500Mbps.
Opensignal’s crowd sourced data, sampled between January 31 and April 30 this year showed that South Korean telcos LG U+, SK Telecom and KT 5G speeds hit over 200 Mbps downloads, substantially faster than the 45 to 64 Mbps users got on their 4G networks.
AT&T and T-Mobile subscribers in the United States expecting similar speed bumps might be disappointed, as Opensignal’s data showed that on the former 5G was capable of 62.7 Mbps downloads on average, and 47 Mbps for the latter.
This is around twice as fast as AT&T and T-Mobile’s 4G networks, but well behind South Korean Telcos, Verizon and Telstra.
The speed difference is partly due to the amount of spectrum available to each telco, in which frequency bands 5G services are available, and cell site backhaul.
Lower frequency range spectrum offers greater range and better object penetration than higher frequency bands, but results in less capacity and lower speeds.
Opensignal noted that T-Mobile had repurposed low-band spectrum from 4G services in the 600 MHz range, and AT&T in 850 MHz, whereas other operators used mid-band spectrum between 1 and 6 GHz.
T-Mobile will have access to US telco Sprint’s frequency band assets which include mid-band spectrum, and which should boost its speed ratings, Opensignal said.

Telstra turns to IBM to help reshape its network supply chain – Telco/ISP- Tempemail – Blog – 10 minute

Telstra is using cognitive technology from IBM to decide how and where to distribute spares and other materials needed to build and maintain its network.
Supply chain executive Jon Young told IBM’s Think 2020 conference last week that the telco is “nine months into a 12-plus month journey” deploying a cognitive “supply chain control tower”.
IBM describes a control tower as a connected hub that “collects and coalesces supply chain information and analyses the structured data for deep insights that stakeholders might otherwise miss.”
“The insights gleaned help to eliminate misinformation and close information gaps that lead to over- or under reactions and product excess or shortages,” IBM said late last year.
For Telstra, the combination of a cognitive supply chain control tower; existing processes implemented through an integrated business planning (IBP) platform; and agile ways of work; has enabled it to navigate challenges caused firstly by the bushfires and now COVID-19.
“It’s been a pretty interesting calendar year,” Young said.
“You cannot plan for this. You’d have to go back 100-plus years to be able to find anything that would impact supply or demand the way that this has. 
“More importantly, COVID-19 has happened so quickly. In a matter of weeks, things that were not as important for us such as face masks or sanitising gel became an all-encompassing, most important thing that we needed to fix now.”
Young said COVID-19 exposed some single points of failure in Telstra’s network supply chain that the telco is now addressing.
“A few of the things that have really jumped out at us at the moment is we’ve got many single points of failure across the end-to-end in our supply chain,” he said.
“The weakest link is going to get exposed in times like these. 
“This situation has really helped us apply a very high level of focus on those single points of failure, and we’re now actively working on leveraging the tools, the data and the processes that we have in place that we know work to quickly try to address those points of failure.”
Telstra’s Agile ways of working – the adaptability of staff – also emerged as an important aspect of Telstra being able to meet the challenges of COVID-19.
“At the core we’re an operations group, and an operations group would struggle to go fully Agile, but we’ve identified pockets within the group that can apply Agile ways of working,” Young said.
“That can allow them to leverage the tools and technologies that we have, such as the control tower, to make really quick decisions that can get us to the outcome in a much quicker way than we would have been able to without it. 
“When you sandwich it all up, you end up with this really good outcome that means that, yes every day is a new challenge [under COVID-19] and some days are better than others, but through and through we’ve been on this journey now for five or six weeks.
“While it’s definitely not business-as-usual, we think that the processes, the Agile ways of working and leveraging the tools such as the cognitive control tower are helping us to stay ahead of the problems rather than reacting to them.”
