  • When a company deploys new technology, success depends on effective user education and adoption. This means employees not only need to understand how the technology works, but they need to change their behaviors. This doesn’t happen through osmosis.

    From the earliest stages of planning new technology deployments, companies need to think about lines of business workflow. How do people currently work and what role will the new technology play in this work?

    In this webinar, you will learn fundamentals of building an adoption plan, including identifying use cases, internal marketing and collecting feedback to evaluate success.

    Amy Thacker is a marketing veteran with a graduate degree in teaching. Her experience allows her to meld internal marketing strategies with training best practices.
  • As the gateway to IT for most end users, service and support is the biggest driver of customer satisfaction and can generate a tremendous return on investment.

In this session, Jeff Rumburg will use benchmarking data and case studies to demonstrate the untapped value of all service and support organizations.

  • ITSM Tools have gone through some significant changes over the past 10 years. They moved from on premise to cloud, are now used far beyond the IT department, became increasingly mobile and many more things.
    The market leaders became legacy providers and new providers rapidly gained market share. At the same time IT delivery is shifting to a delivery model that has many internal and external providers collaborate. ITSM tools however are still not collaboration tools for service providers and prices remained high and yearly running costs even higher…Much has changed however in the past years and todays modern tools provide so much more value for significantly lower costs!

    Join today’s presentation to learn more about increasing value and lowering costs at the same time...

  • Most IT professionals are familiar with the operational metrics of service and support. KPIs such as cost per ticket, first contact resolution rate, and mean time to resolve are well understood and almost universally applied. Yet even support organizations that have mastered these metrics and achieved a degree of operational success often struggle to gain visibility and credibility within their own enterprise. The all-too-common result is that service and support operates at a subsistence level, and lacks the necessary resources to deliver effective levels of support.

    The business world offers a potential solution to this dilemma. When a business is not performing well, investments in the business dry up because there is no reasonable expectation of earning a profit. By contrast, businesses that are profitable receive adequate funding because they are able to attract investment capital seeking a positive return. So what would happen if IT service and support organizations began operating more like businesses, and were able to attract funding and other resources based upon their profitability?

    In this presentation Jeff Rumburg, Managing Partner at MetricNet, reveals an approach for managing IT service and support as a business. Additionally, he proposes a handful of business metrics that can be used to quantify and communicate the profitability of service and support. Finally, he discusses the need to adopt a paradigm shift for any service and support organization that aspires to realize the benefits of operating as a true business.
