Hi [[ session.user.profile.firstName ]]

IT Project Management

  • Improving the ITSM experience will improve customer satisfaction. In this session, we will take a user-centric approach to discuss methods for ensuring the customer experience is engaging, consistent, and memorable leading to higher customer satisfaction
  • In the digital era, IT has an extraordinary opportunity to become a data-driven business partners helping the business achieve its goals of revenue generation, cost reduction, and risk mitigation. However, IT reporting and analytics have historically focused on descriptive and diagnostic work – describing what happened and why. The speed and agility of the digital revolution demands the ability to not only describe what happened in the past but to predict what might happen in the future and to make recommendations about what should be done.

    IT operations analytics offers IT organizations a path to evolve the use of machine, operational and business data for more effective, forward-looking prioritization and decision-making. And in a recent BMC sponsored survey, 79% of IT pros said they would be more effective at their job if they had access to non-IT sources of data to help them make decisions in business context.

    Join Donnie Berkholz, 451 Research, and Erin Avery, BMC Software, for a high energy, fast paced discussion on adaptive, real-time analytics that any IT operations organization can adopt to become highly prescriptive and predictive.
  • In the application economy, every team needs different information in order to be effective:

    •Executives need high level portfolios / programs to be able to prioritize work to keep up with the competitive demand
    •Project Managers need project schedules, effort estimates, time tracking , and issues & risks to accurately manage project health and update status
    •Resource Managers need to balance effort estimates from support and project work to effectively see expectations of their resources
    •Developers need to break down project work, support, enhancement, and bugs to smaller segments in order to run in an agile, waterfall, or hybrid model.

    However, often there is no one software tool that all segments can agree on. Total Application Life Cycle Management is a solution from R2 consulting designed to allow organizations to leverage the investments that they have made in existing toolsets and allows users to stay in the systems most suitable for their responsibilities, yet provide leadership with integrated visibility into all activities related to the organization's portfolio of applications, including the ability to see:

    •ALL Effort expended for maintenance and support including cap/op-ex costs of the application and supporting infrastructure
    •ALL bug fixes and enhancements plus supporting information
    •Demand and resource management aligned with projects and project information
    •All compliance data include application version, contract details, and license information

    Please join us for a BrightTalk webinar where CA Partner R2 Consulting will share details about their Total Application Life Cycle Management solution and how it can help your organization create a holistic view into the business of IT.

  • Robert Rose, Chief Strategy Officer at the Content Marketing Institute and this year's keynote speaker at the Intelligent Content Conference, shares 4 key takeaways from the event.

    If content is king, intelligent content is the ace up your sleeve. Smart organizations are driving business impact through the application of intelligent content principles. Intelligent content is modular, structured, meta-data rich, reusable and format-free, which means you can deliver it to the right audience, in any channel, at any time.

    In this webinar Robert Rose covers best practices for intelligent content and shares how you can get started with managing content at speed and at scale.

    We’ll Discuss:
    1. How to look for tools and technology that support the creation of intelligent content
    2. Looking at the “content model” - the connective tissue between strategy and implementation
    3. Developing the intelligent content and engineering strategy
    4. How to start small and quickly expand your content throughout the organization and the buyer’s journey

    As businesses start to behave more like media companies, there emerges a seemingly overwhelming challenge: how to keep up. The only way we can keep up is if we start thinking about the structure of our digital content experiences so we can do the same.

    Who should attend: Digital Marketers, Content Strategists, IT decision makers and anyone interested in the vastly evolving marketing technology landscape.

    This webinar is brought to you by Hippo CMS and Kanban Solutions.

  • Project Teams rely on countless processes, and project teams find themselves on both sides of the process fence. Not only do they rely on project management processes to achieve their objectives, they also rely on countless enterprise processes. To succeed, project requires sound Project and Portfolio Management, Systems Development, and a myriad of operational and service delivery processes. Though processes are ubiquitous in every company today, they are frequently looked on negatively or even avoided. In this session Steve Romero will discuss the factors that potentially make processes a hindrance, the means and approaches to make processes practical and enabling, and how great processes and process management can empower project teams.

  • Unconstrained customer requirements combined with technology disrupters in the cloud, big data, analytics, social and mobile is the new norm for businesses in the App Economy. With rapidly changing technologies fostered by transformation and competitive threats, product and application lifecycles are shortened creating the need for changes in how development work is funded and executed on. To shorten these life cycles, the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe)® describes the transformational patterns -from project based funding and control to Lean-Agile budgeting and self-managing Agile Release Trains.
    Richard Knaster, SAFe Principal Consultant, will examine how established strategic themes guide the enterprise investments and strategy for the relevant Agile and traditional waterfall programs. Richard will highlight the need to fund and monitor value streams and teams as organizations move away from top down budgeting to Lean-Agile budgeting. The key take ways for this session are:

    •Value streams not projects should be identified, fostered, funded, monitored and continuously improved
    •PPM needs to fulfill the investment funding responsibilities for both Agile and traditional waterfall programs during this period of transformation
    •Value stream insights utilizing KPIs are required from a portfolio and life-cycle context

  • Organizational agility requires a supportive culture and a shift in how work is viewed and approached. Our findings focus on the value placed on the cultural elements of high organizational agility. A highly developed culture of agility exists when value is placed on ideals and behaviors such as collaboration, diversity, communication, creativity, transparency, and inquisitive thinking. Organizations that establish the following framework are better positioned to enable agility:

    •Supportive Culture: Identifying the value of openness, transparency, respect, knowledge, improvement, and adaptation
    •Strategic Flexibility: Capturing opportunities and responding quickly to varying demands
    •Collective Leadership: Sharing a common view of strategy
    •Capable People: Applying the right talent management resources
    •Adaptive Process: Assessing and establishing new means to respond to change

  • With disruptive technology advances, software assets play an increasingly important role in creating a competitive advantage. It’s time for organizations to recognize and manage business software as a strategic corporate asset. To keep up with the speed of business, companies turn to agile practices to deliver better customer value faster. Challenge: agile software development is too often misunderstood and misreported, impacting taxation, higher volatility in Profit and Loss (P&L) statements, and dramatic, unnecessary staff cuts in an economy where talent retention is paramount to foster innovation. To avoid those negative implications, companies can evolve their financial reporting practices to leverage the financial advantage of agile so they can benefit from the significantly increased tax savings and investor interest associated with agile capitalization. This session will unravel the benefits of agile capitalization and explain how to appropriately interpret and apply generally accepted accounting standard (GAAP SOP 98-1 and ASC 350-40) so your organization can increase its agile adoption to deliver more business value faster to customers.

  • Unified Communications enables multiple communications options (instant messaging, email, voice and video conferencing) to share a common network, and provides users with a richly integrated ecosystem where contact and content are seamlessly shared. UC is often the center of an IT infrastructure making it essential to have a unified IT monitoring solution in place to reduce outages and predict overloads.

    When problems arise — instant messaging outages, video or desktop sharing freezes, VOIP calls affected by jitter, etc. — organizations often grind to a halt as IT teams seek to restore capabilities.

    UC Insight with Log Analytics provides end-to-end IT monitoring across not only heterogeneous Unified Communications applications and systems, but infrastructure as well, delivering detailed call path analysis and Quality of Service readouts for all UC devices and tools.

    This webinar will dive into unified and progressive techniques for monitoring, streamlining and enhancing the output of your Unified Communications applications and systems.
  • In today’s customer-driven business environment, organizations must be laser focused on delivering great customer experiences. Traditional planning practices of “stuffing the funnel” create demand that exceeds the capacity to deliver. Continual juggling of priorities causes organizations to overbook and under deliver. Smart resource management focuses on selecting the right work at the right time to ensure your most important asset - your people - work at their optimum productivity.

    Margo Visitacion, Principal Analyst at Forrester, will examine key practices that can improve how work is selected, assigned and delivered, as well as explain the increasingly important role that project portfolio management plays in making resource management a differentiator in your business. In this session you will take away:
    • Focusing on “first things first” to prioritize what work has to take precedence
    • The importance of team structure and consistent approaches to reduce lag in planned work
    • How to manage change
    • The importance of transparency into demand and how automation and analytics can prevent unplanned work from derailing your resources

  • Collaboration and team working have always been essential components of successful projects, but in today’s technology-driven environment, the composition of those teams and the nature of collaboration have changed. Digitization of business processes and the incorporation of technology into a wide range of products and services are major trends across all sectors. Digital projects are therefore no longer siloed within departments, but involve active participation and ownership from line of business stakeholders across a diverse range of business functions, from marketing to supply chain management and from IT to customer service. In this context, PPM best practice must evolve to meet the needs of these diverse groups, whilst PPM solutions must empower different roles across the organization, some of whom may be less familiar with project management processes. Ovum has recently undertaken a study of PPM best practices and will present its findings, along with recommendations for applying these in your organization. The session will address topics including:

    *Why digitization is changing PPM best practice
    *How to improve collaboration across multi-disciplinary project teams
    *Where agile and DevOps are impacting PPM
    *How to extend the benefits of PPM across and beyond the business *Why PPM is a significant enabler of digital transformation

  • Data exploration is the first step in data analysis and typically involves summarizing the main characteristics of a dataset. It is commonly conducted using visual analytics tools.

    Before a formal data analysis can be conducted, the analyst must know how many cases are in the dataset, what variables are included, how many missing observations there are and what general hypotheses the data is likely to support. An initial exploration of the dataset helps answer these questions by familiarizing analysts about the data with which they are working.

    Join Noam Engelberg as he walks you through the 5 best practices for Data Exploration in preparation for Data Modeling.

  • Today, business is fast-paced with more moving parts than ever before. Companies that adapt their systems quickly in responding to business needs have a distinct competitive advantage. But organizations that are saddled with legacy systems not only struggle to keep up, but they’re also likely to find themselves on the fringe of relevance. Learn how to extend CA PPM to solve these complex modernization challenges.

    Which of these modernization challenges are you dealing with now?

    •Modernization initiatives exist for our major systems, but we need “the plan” for what else must change too.

    •Our systems are highly customized so we are “stuck”! How do we get unstuck without disrupting the business and get to our target state?

    •There are a few hundred applications, many are too expensive to maintain and take too long to change, but how?

    •Groups of large applications (e.g. mainframe, ERP, custom suites) need to be modernized to meet current business needs, but big bang will take too long, cost too much and “temporary” business solutions will just keep adding to today’s complexity and cost.

    •Our best talent, who should be innovating, are stuck maintaining what we have and fixing it as best they can to meet business needs.

    Join us for a BrightTalk webinar on Tuesday, May 17th at 10am PT where CA’s alliance partner Ciber will discuss how organizations are using portfolio management methods to solve these difficult and complex application modernization and rationalization challenges.

    In this webinar 451 Research analyst Carl Lehmann will address:

    •What makes hybrid cloud architecture different from traditional IT infrastructure and why it matters
    •The business and technical issues associated with IT management in hybrid cloud era
    •How to craft a reference architecture to guide investment strategy for hybrid IT

    Participants will learn the goals, techniques and tools needed to bring synergy to on-premises and cloud resources so they execute and adapt as a uniform platform for business operations.
