This may include coordinating with third-party vendors, customer contacts, or other IT teams for a holistic solution.

If need be, they can include the other IT resources, 3rd party or vendors for a faster resolution after obtaining the proper approvals. They maintain the appropriate communication channels within intra teams or outside so that all stakeholders are kept informed ahead in a time bound manner.
