  • Using Lean IT  metrics to streamline ITSM Using Lean IT metrics to streamline ITSM David Smith President Micromation Inc. ITSM, ITIL, Lean, Kaizen, ISO, TCO, Author – Implementing Metrics Recorded: Aug 10 2016 49 mins
    Since IT is primarily “Knowledge Work” it’s critical we understand our productivity vs. the value we create. Time is the key factor in calculating productivity. It is also important to know what value-added vs. non-value activities consume our time.

    Leading organizations are tapping into a new Lean IT measurement model to better understand how to measure throughput, efficiency, effectiveness and quality of ITSM services.

    There are three common measurement constraints:
    1. What to measure for value creation, alignment and operational excellence.
    2. Interpreting results. Many lack the skills and methods required to analyze metrics data to support corrective or preventative action.
    3. Getting/trusting data. Underlying data collections systems are not designed to support analytical methods required for management decision making and/or are not trustworthy.

    This session is about how savvy IT managers are implementing a new Lean IT monitoring and metrics and ITSM.

    In 45 minutes we’ll cover: 
    What’s Lean all about
    How Lean maximizes customer value by minimizing waste
    Critical to quality measurement for ITSM
    Value stream mapping technique
    Lean ITSM value stream metrics
    Interpreting result with examples of non-value activities (waste)
    How to get trustworthy data
    How to learn more
    How to get started for no cost

  • How to use a Discovery Tool to Supercharge Your ITSM Program How to use a Discovery Tool to Supercharge Your ITSM Program Doron Orbach, Bill Dyck, Nick Rendall Recorded: Jul 20 2016 66 mins
    IT departments are constantly searching for new ways to optimize the speed, quality, and cost of their IT Service Management (ITSM) activities. Surprisingly, one solution that is often overlooked in the optimization process is the increased usage of a discovery tool within a configuration management system (CMS) to be the powerhouse for all ITSM, ITAM, operations analytics, and even network management processes.

    This webinar will take a deep dive into the uses of discovery tools and how they can be greater leveraged into all facets of ITSM, ITAM, operations analytics, and network management processes for increased value creation.

    Discovery Tools: Why they’re more relevant than ever
    ITSM, ITAM, operations analytics, and network management use cases and functions enabled by an integrated Discovery Tool

  • Optimizing the Tradeoff: Cost vs. Quality in IT Service and Support Optimizing the Tradeoff: Cost vs. Quality in IT Service and Support Jeff Rumburg, Managing Partner at MetricNet Recorded: Jul 19 2016 64 mins
    Cost vs. quality: It’s a perennial issue in technical service and support. Drive your costs too low, and you risk sacrificing the quality of service. Conversely, if you push quality too high (yes, that’s possible!), then you drive your costs through the roof. Understanding the cost/quality tradeoff is the most critical step toward optimizing your support model.

    Using data from more than 300 benchmarks worldwide, Jeff Rumburg will illustrate how top-performing service and support organizations strike an appropriate balance between the cost of service delivery and the quality of support provided. He’ll share simple yet powerful techniques that will enable organizations to pinpoint their position on the cost vs. quality curve, determine if higher (or lower) quality is justified, reduce costs without sacrificing quality, and improve quality without increasing costs.

    Finally, he’ll share an interactive scorecard that organizations can use to determine whether service and support has been optimized, and, if it hasn’t, to identify the tangible steps needed to achieve an optimized support model.
  • What Going Digital Really Means to IT What Going Digital Really Means to IT Bill Briggs, CTO, Deloitte Consulting LLP Ross Mason, Founder and VP of Product Strategy, MuleSoft Recorded: Jul 19 2016 64 mins
    Almost everyone is undergoing digital transformation, but not everyone knows the right way to do it. In a recent MuleSoft survey, 96 percent of respondents are executing on digital transformation initiatives or planning to do so in the near future. However, the results also showed that just 18 percent of IT decision makers are confident that they will succeed in meeting this year’s digital transformation goals. To do this effectively, IT teams need different skill sets, tools, and more importantly, different mindsets. Join Bill Briggs, CTO at Deloitte, and Ross Mason, Founder and VP of Product Strategy at MuleSoft, to learn how IT can grow beyond “business as usual".

  • The Radical Impact of DevOps on IT Service Management The Radical Impact of DevOps on IT Service Management Charles Betz, IT Strategist, Architect and Advisor Recorded: Jul 5 2016 45 mins
    What is DevOps? Where did it come from? What do it and the broader Agile movement mean for the enterprise, and for IT service management? The good news is that from a customer perspective, DevOps is one of the best things to happen in years. The challenge is that DevOps has a radically different approach to process, risk management, and IT operating models. It is transforming our basic understanding of how IT work gets done, and even how it is defined.
    Come and hear an experienced enterprise architect and ITSM professional talk about a variety of cases and examples illustrating just how fundamental the DevOps challenge is for ITSM. Key points:
    -DevOps culture, practices, and automation
    -The trend from “project” to “product” management and what this means
    -The Kanban emphasis on limiting work in process and understanding IT demand in a unified way
    As a bonus, attendees will receive a brief introduction to the free, open source project Calavera, a functioning DevOps toolchain in miniature using Vagrant, Chef, Jenkins, and other modern tools. Calavera can be easily installed as a virtual environment on a modern workstation or laptop for training and educational purposes.
