With release 6.1 and continued with 6.2, the Home page access pull down was renamed from Select a View to Access Method By and the options were changed. The view access is still available, but now you also can access applicable OUM content by role (Project Manager or Team Member) or by Supplemental Guidance (Solution Delivery Guide or Supplemental Guide) or by Method Repository. So let’s talk about each of these options as well as review the View option.
Access is defined for two roles; Project Manager and Team Member.
The OUM for Project Managers access page provides quick links into OUM content that is applicable to Project Managers. This includes the Manage views, the templates, and valuable resources such as Planning a Project using OUM and Tailoring OUM for your Project.
The OUM for Team Members access page provides quick links for all other roles. This includes the Method Repository, the templates, examples, mappings and techniques.
By Supplemental Guidance
Supplemental Guidance access is by Solution Delivery Guide or Supplemental Guide. Selecting either of these takes you to the appropriate section of the Supplemental Guide Index. This access selection enables you to go straight to the supplemental guidance that best fits your immediate needs. Choose Solution Delivery Guide to access the Cloud Application Services Implementation Approach Solution Delivery Guide. OUM contains a good number of Supplemental Guides. The guides are presented in alphabetical order.
By Method Repository
The Method Repository section of the Access Method By pull down provides access to the core OUM process overviews, task overviews and templates for each focus area.
If you are familiar with previous releases of OUM and you want to know what happened to your view, start with the ==VIEW== section of the Access Method By pull down. This section is organized as follows, Manage, Envision, Implement, Business Process Management (BPM), Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) and Full Method. Selecting the ==VIEW==, Manage, Envision, Implement or Full Method takes you to the appropriate section of the View Catalog. Once in the View Catalog, choose your view. Selecting Business Process Management (BPM) or Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) takes you to the associated landing page and you can then choose your view.
