    Delivering ITSM For Business Maturity: A Practical Framework
    Beverly Weed-Schertzer - Executive ITSM Consultant, edifyIT Recorded: Apr 11 2019 43 mins
    ​We are in confusing times when it comes to adopting ITSM to deliver functional technology services to the business. ITSM seems to be out-dating itself with ever-changing operating models. This can negatively impact strategies to mature IT and the Business together. The role of IT provider over the last three decades of rapid technological advancement hasn’t adapted nearly enough to mature the company.

    You may of heard this many times - "IT must focus on aligning to the business and have a primary focus on service integration". Is your ITSM program working to achieve this focus? Most likely you are among the growing population that is failing or missing the target in order to achieve results with ITSM that ensures business quality and maturity. Listen to Beverly Weed-Schertzer as she explains a fresh perspective on ITSM from practical experiences spanning over three decades.

    Take back control of your ITSM program!
  • How to Drive Customer Experience by Changing Your Metrics
    How to Drive Customer Experience by Changing Your Metrics
    Nancy Van Elsacker Louisnord, President, TOPdesk USA Recorded: Apr 11 2019 41 mins
    Much is being said on how ITSM’s ultimate goal is a high customer satisfaction and great employee experience. Historically, ITSM teams have been using specific performance-based metrics that tend to be internally focused. Even though these metrics are important and remain relevant, they do not really give any insight into the customer experience. So to gain actual insight into customer satisfaction, you need to change your metrics. The question becomes: How do I change my metrics in an efficient way?

    In this presentation, Nancy shares some insights about why shifting your focus to measuring customer satisfaction is so important and what’s in it for your ITSM team. She discusses various approaches you can take to accomplish these goals and walks you through which metrics to focus on and how to implement this new strategy.

    Nancy Van Elsacker Louisnord is the President TOPdesk USA. She’s also a public speaker, a service management expert and a contributor to numerous leading industry publications and the TOPdesk Blog.

  • Should we still be optimising ITIL for today’s digital services?
    Should we still be optimising ITIL for today’s digital services?
    Steve Morgan - Director, Syniaid IT Recorded: Apr 10 2019 34 mins
    ITIL has long been established as the de-facto framework for the management of IT services. However, the world has moved on. Our IT services are delivered differently and the tools we use to deliver them are commonly cloud-based or delivered by complex multi-vendor models.

    Like a prize-fighter, ITIL is being dusted-off for one last crack of the title, whilst new younger fighters enter the ring. Should we still be looking to optimise our processes using ITIL as a reference point? What other alternatives are available?

    This presentation will look at how to use ITIL as the basis for an effective IT operating model, and what else you ought to be looking at to successful deliver today’s complex digital IT services.
  • Is ITIL 4 DevOps Ready?
    Is ITIL 4 DevOps Ready?
    Rob Akershoek, IT Architect, Fruition Partners Recorded: Apr 10 2019 56 mins
    Most IT organizations are currently working on transforming their existing IT delivery processes, with increasing use of Agile development methods (such as SCRUM), Continuous Delivery and DevOps. As a result of this transformation, traditional ITIL service management processes are being challenged for their relevance. ITIL processes are considered to be bureaucratic, slow and not relevant for the new digital ecosystem consisting. ITIL v3 also have some significant gaps as it didn’t cover the actual design and development of IT services (or products).

    But now in the beginning of 2019, Axelos introduced ITIL 4.

    Does this new version fill in these gaps?
    How to combine ITIL and DevOps?
    Does the digital enterprise still need ITIL 4?
    Or will your DevOps journey fail without a solid service management practice?

    This presentation will show how DevOps and ITIL should be combined in order to optimally manage the new digital ecosystem while at the same time being able to meet the increasingly stringent requirements imposed on IT service delivery.
  • The Need for Multimodal Service Management
    The Need for Multimodal Service Management
    Claudine Koers, Principal Consultant, Quint Wellington Redwood Recorded: Apr 10 2019 59 mins
    In this digital age, more and more work is being performed in Agile and DevOps contexts. Not only by IT teams but also in closer collaboration with the business departments.

    This agility serves customers, chain partners and own employees. While the processes, policies and rules in an agile organisation should be set up in order to facilitate agility, at the same time there is a must for organisations to remain compliant with the (stricter) laws and regulations. We see agile organisations delegating as much responsibility as possible to the operational levels of the organisation to achieve ownership and quick decision-making. GRC, ITSM and agility must be adopted and implemented throughout the organisation and be part of the 'corporate DNA'.

    The adaptability of the value chain enables organisations to react to changing demands from their stakeholders in the most effective and efficient ways. During this session participants will learn about the various experiences that ITIL 4 provides.

    About the Speaker:
    Claudine is an IT management expert with experience in service management, security, risk, Lean, Agile and DevOps, in particular combining working methods that drives IT organisations to excel. She writes articles, develops trainings, gives lectures and realises projects on these topics. In addition, she is closely involved in the development of the new version of ITIL 4.

    “Motivation and enthusiasm in employees encourages me to work every day on better cooperation mechanisms leading to even better organisational performance. Experience in DevOps and ITSM transformations with a healthy dose of curiosity, empathic capability makes it possible to make connections within the organisation to realise this"
