    Machine Learning and Analytics: Taking ITSM and Support to the Next Level Vesna Soraic, Steve Anderson, and Roy Atkinson (moderator) Recorded: Sep 25 2018 60 mins
    Technology is becoming increasingly critical to businesses and other organizations, but as technology speeds up, we often don’t think about the negative business impacts it may bring: new hires whose equipment isn’t available, services that are interrupted, and customers or users who aren’t informed of a change or outage, to name a few. Smarter technologies driven by abundant data analytics can provide the support organization with information and solutions with more accuracy and speed than previously possible.

    Join us to learn:

    • Why analytics are important to service management and support
    • What machine learning is and how it can enable faster, better, more accurate resolutions
    • How machine learning and analytics combine to enable smart processes that can pinpoint expertise, accelerate configuration and change management, and minimize wasted time

    More organizations than ever before are now recognizing the importance of the employee experience. Productivity, talent acquisition and retention, and customer satisfaction are all related to the employee experience, so it makes very good business sense to improve it as much as possible.

    In this webinar, we will discuss:
    * Understanding how the employee experience is related to business success
    * Measuring the right things
    * Providing a single platform for service management across the organization

    Who should attend:
    * Service management professionals inside and outside IT
    * Managers and process owners who want to learn more about service management trends
  • Get IT Done: Strategies for Supporting the Modern Workforce
    Get IT Done: Strategies for Supporting the Modern Workforce Roy Atkinson and Peter Zeinoun Recorded: Jul 24 2018 59 mins
    More than one-third of organizations identify "managing an increased workload with existing staff" as their primary challenge, according to a recent survey of support organizations conducted by HDI. Compounding this challenge is the growing complexity of the modern workforce: traditional workspaces are giving way to a remote workforce and the gig economy. These workers bring with them their own devices for use at work and are conditioned to expect business apps to be as lightweight and frictionless as the apps used in their consumer lives.

    In this webinar, HDI Senior Analyst and Peter Zeinoun will provide essential information for support leaders who must reimagine how to deliver an "awesome" support experience for employees, improving both the productivity of the modern workforce and those who support them.

    In this webinar, we will discuss:

    *How the employee support dynamic is shifting
    *How to create a frictionless employee experience
    *How to use training and professional development to increase productivity, retention, and morale
  • The Future of the IT Support Center
    The Future of the IT Support Center Roy Atkinson and Stephen Smith Recorded: Jun 19 2018 62 mins
    Technology is changing at a faster pace than ever and will continue to accelerate. Support centers (helpdesks or service desks) not only need to keep up with the technologies of their customers or users but also the technology within the support center itself.

    The customers and end users seeking support will be increasingly mobile, more likely to be using their own devices and applications, and more tech-savvy than in the past. Support centers will be handling fewer easy, “one and done” contacts, and will need increasingly sophisticated knowledge and tools to maintain their organization’s workforce.

    You will learn about:
    * How new technologies both impact and enable the service and support center’s role
    * How to think about the coming innovations in automation and artificial intelligence


    Who Should Attend:
    * New and established service and support leaders
    * Anyone wishing to learn more about how the world of support will change over the next few years

  • The Next Step: Employee-Focused Service Management
    The Next Step: Employee-Focused Service Management Roy Atkinson and Marc Stitt Recorded: May 23 2018 61 mins
    Service management principles and practices have been broadening to encompass far more than IT services over the past few years. HDI research shows that more than half of organizations are using the tools and practices of service management in other business units, such as HR, facilities and customer service. The applications of these proven practices—when done properly—have improved service delivery for business units.

    In today’s organizations, agility and velocity have increased the responsibilities of individual employees, who depend on fast, easily-accessible services to get their work done, from anywhere and at any time. This requires a new focus of service management on employees.

    In this webinar, we will discuss:
    * What service management throughout the organization means
    * Why organizations need to focus on employee success as well as business unit success
    * How the delivery of services affects employee productivity and morale

    Technology and the Service Desk: Expanding Mission, Expanding Skills Rae Ann Bruno, David Hayman, and Roy Atkinson (moderator) Recorded: Apr 25 2018 61 mins
    Today’s service desks are farther and farther removed from the help desks of yesteryear in which all equipment was standardized and issued solely by IT. Support organizations are struggling more to keep up with the demands of an ever growing population of mobile users using a diverse of devices, applications, systems, and equipment. In fact, of the top five factors causing ticket volumes to rise, new and current technology accounts for four.

    Navigating this ever-changing technology landscape requires an expanding set of skills. In this webinar, Rae Ann Bruno will provide essential training for service and support leaders facing new or in-progress technology implementations.

    You will learn about:

    * The key technologies needed to run a successful service and support center
    * Best practices for implementing new technologies and building a business case to justify investment
