  • How to Make the Most of your Metrics: an Effective Reporting Framework
    How to Make the Most of your Metrics: an Effective Reporting Framework Paul Dooley, Optimal Connections Recorded: May 17 2018 49 mins
    There is a lot of guidance in the IT service management world about designing a proper Metrics
    and Measurements Framework; yet without a timely and effective Reporting Framework to sort
    this data, convert it to information, and present it in the right format at the right time to the
    people that need to know in order to make better decisions and take action, a metrics and
    measurements framework will be of little practical use.

    In this presentation, Paul will discuss why and how an effective Reporting Framework is essential
    to converting metrics into usable information that enables knowledge and improved decision making.

    Additionally, we will consider:
    • Why reporting should operate at three levels – strategic, tactical and operational
    • Four key elements to focus your reporting around
    • Why subjective results are just as critical as objective measurements
    • How “visible reporting” can drive people performance at all stages of the life-cycle
    • Which processes rely heavily on an effective reporting framework
    • Common reporting pitfalls, and how to avoid them

    Paul will conclude with 10 keys to designing and deploying a high-performance ITSM Reporting
    Framework.

    Attendees will walk away with an understanding of why a well-designed highly automated
    Reporting Framework that utilizes a “balanced approach”, effective graphics, clear targets, real-time
    as well as periodic reporting, along with analysis and actionable recommendations, is
    essential for IT service management to be effective in delivering quality services, as well as
    reporting the value of such services to all stakeholders.

  • IT Ops SIG Talk Ep. 6: Surviving OMW to OMi Migration
    IT Ops SIG Talk Ep. 6: Surviving OMW to OMi Migration Bogdan Vosnjak Recorded: May 17 2018 36 mins
    Surviving OMW to OMi Migration

    The customer with a well-developed OMW-based monitoring solution was faced with a challenge to migrate to OMi10 due to OMW obsolescence. Their old monitoring system was deeply integrated, highly customized and exposed to the outside world (their partners and customers) on a 24/7 basis. Migration challenges included:
    - Migration of event sources (OM agents, SNMP Trap sources, NNMi, SiteScope)
    - Migration of Service models with complex propagation/calculation rules
    - Migration of customized Incident ticketing integration (Service Manager)
    - Migration of custom applications (event archive, Service availability web portal, downtime management)
    - Minimum downtime during migration

    In this presentation, attendees will learn how these challenges were addressed and ultimately overcome.
