When you have the big picture, it's easier to make small steps forwardTony Price, WW Director, IT4IT Strategic Consultant & Craig Alexander, IT4IT Strategic Consultant, EMEAOne very big challenge we have in IT is “what is the big picture”. We hear so much about technological advances and trends like cloud and the internet of things that many organisations become confused and seem to think that these are the big picture – but they are not! These are simply different types of ways IT can be delivered and technological advances.
So why is this “big picture” so elusive? If you think about it most IT people are quite obsessed with IT. It’s their job after all. IT advances seem to come thick and fast resulting in yet another project, yet another new thing to deliver, and yet another set of problems and issues to resolve. So it’s not really a shock to see that IT people can become easily engrossed in technology and not focused on “the big picture”.
Does a big picture actually exist? Well yes, as at last there is a Reference Architecture designed specifically for running the business of IT which utilises fundamental concepts such as viewing IT as a value chain, supported by value stream. This is called IT4IT™ and it has been produced by The OpenGroup http://www.opengroup.org/IT4IT
So how can the big picture help with Continual Service Improvement? Well, at last we have an overarching architecture which we can use to drive improvements focused on maximising value back to the business, and not just improving IT for the sake of it! This also allows organisations to identify small incremental steps that are more manageable and achievable for them to deliver whilst gradually moving closer to the “big picture”.
This session will introduce IT4IT™ and give some practical examples of how it can be used within the context of Continual Service ImprovementRead more >
Running Enterprise IT is probably more complicated now than it has ever been. Many organisations are embarking on transformation projects to take advantage of the modern hybrid world. But with all that complexity how do you make sure your transformation is a success? Join HP to take a look at some of the areas you need to be considering when transforming your environment to achieve the better service levels and efficiencies you are striving for. We’ll talk about everything from discovering interdependencies through automation and changing the way you manage your new environment.
With the constant pressure on IT Budgets and DevOps taking the center stage of attention, there is a trend to automate everything. The question becomes what to do with IT Service Management, is that still needed? which parts can be automated? Is No-Ops a real target? Is this New-Style-of-IT or this ‘Fluid-IT’ is really an answer to everything?
Join Kees van den Brink to discover the possibilities of automating ITSM, what can be learned from movements like DevOps and how an enterprise organization can be organized to handle different level of automation.
No more delayed departures, revised timetables and leaves on the line. Kick these blockers into touch and clear the way to a faster journey, by testing earlier and continuously. Adopting an agile approach within your development team really isn’t as daunting as you might think. Join this webinar and hear how you can achieve an effective agile framework.

Cloud computing is all about improving agility and efficiency for organisations but the focus is often on the speed to provision infrastructure and services. But what about all the ongoing management and maintenance processes that go with it? If you are going to improve the deployment of services using public or private cloud it is important to look at how you improve the efficiency of the processes around it.
Learn how process automation technology can help you automate common tasks and processes to improve the speed of delivery, improve the quality of services and take out cost.
The drive to agile development, faster delivery and DevOps has resulted in a major reduction in the scope and frequency of performance testing, primarily due to the need to reduce cycle times, and the difficulty of executing large scale tests earlier in the process. This has also led to a proliferation of test technologies selected by individual projects to cover only their specific needs, causing reduced test case reuse and inconsistency in results.
Reduced delivery times, instant and ubiquitous user feedback and reduced testing is a potentially toxic combination for organizations.
Performance Engineering is the new discipline of smarter, more flexible testing executed earlier in the process, delivering actionable and repeatable results including accurate performance data enabling issues to be addressed faster and at lower cost. Performance Engineering is not about a specific technology or product, but it is about reducing rework, maximizing automation and increasing feedback.
Join this webinar to learn more about Performance Engineering and how HP’s Performance Engineering solutions can help you on the path towards continuous business feedback and improvement, built-in and automated performance, optimized applications for business and customer value, and collaborative and interactive teams focused on quality.
Join us for this webinar to learn how HP customers use automation to become more efficient, reduce errors, improve quality and become more responsive to business requirements. In this webinar we will focus on areas where our customers have gained the greatest benefit from automation such as incident resolution; server lifecycle management and user lifecycle management. We will also look at the process organisations take to implement automation technology and drive change in their businesses and where they were able to demonstrate strong return on investment.
What does Big Data mean in the context of IT Service Management and how it can increase customer satisfaction, improve IT staff productivity, and lower costs?
If you joined our last webinar you will have heard Neville Ward and Rosalie Freeman discuss what Bid Data means in the context of ITSM and the service desk and how it can help you to address these issue.
In this webinar Neville and Rosalie will discuss these points further and it will also include a live demo of HP Service Anywhere.
