Strategic Project Management or SPM shouldn’t be difficult. At the most basic level it’s about ensuring the projects we deliver help our organization to achieve its strategic goals and objectives. Yet consistently SPM fails to deliver consistent results. In this thought provoking webinar industry, expert Andy Jordan joins CA’s Jim Tisch to discuss SPM and understand some of the things that go wrong:
•Setting ourselves up for failure with the prong projects
•The focus on what instead of why
•Short term thinking in project execution
•Failure to ensure commitments are actually met
As 2017 draws to a close and organizations the world over commit to do things better in 2018 this is a webinar you simply can’t afford to miss. Sign up today and let Andy give you the tools you need to deliver on next year’s strategic objectives.
Organizations in most any industry are feeling increasing pressure to move fast. But at what cost? Some have learned the hard way that skipping crucial processes, like testing, damages performance and impacts customer sentiments on your brand. In this case, the fast time to market becomes meaningless.
Smart businesses are adapting to a shift left strategy. These teams are learning how to incorporate testing early and often in the release cycle, supporting business requirements to move fast while ensuring high-performing products and quality. But getting there isn’t easy. In this webinar, we’ll cover:
•Testing tools: tool choice is important. Not all tools have been designed to support this new paradigm.
•Integrations: to be effective, testing tools must integrate easily with the tools and processes modern teams use, including CI/CD and APM products. Further, these tools must be very easy to use, specifically for developers.
•Organizational models: shifting left requires changes to traditional organizations and culture. We’ll share insight into the successful models we’ve seen.
DevOps is a logical extension for many businesses’ Agile culture. Companies embrace DevOps to increase release cadences, establish release predictability and consistency; and creating data transparency for regulatory compliance.
With DevOps transformation comes increased pressure for business, IT, and operations to collaborate, automate process workflow, enable a continuous quality environment, and create repeatable process performance.
In this session, Dennis Baldwin covers what to consider in DevOps process and automation, outlines common steps, resource involvement, risks, DevOps best (and worst) practices, and what’s next in DevOps transformation.
Webinar attendees will learn:
•What DevOps is and what it isn’t
•DevOps process vs. automation transformation
•What and who is involved with initiating DevOps
•DevOps transformation culture attributes and risks
•DevOps best and worst practices
•DevOps industry direction
Technology is a tool, pure and simple. It’s part of a capability that along with people and processes that solves a business challenge.

It's all very well having a great idea, but if you can't justify the benefit you may be unlikely to get the budget.
Competition is always a race to the finish line. The winners will be the enterprises that can transform faster than their competition.

The mandate to drive digital transformation has finally hit the realm of Higher Education, specifically targeting the “Ed Tech” universe. From the application process up until graduation, colleges and universities are dealing with a student body who have needs and demands that are very different from those of students who graduated even a decade ago. Think about it: the freshmen walking onto campus today have all grown up as consumers within an online community. They don’t just appreciate an intuitive, well-organized web experience, they expect one.
ServiceNow aids schools in two ways: the platform makes it smarter, faster, and easier for students to navigate their student portals, and for universities to integrate and consolidate all of their disparate systems. With its intuitive interface, ServiceNow helps higher ed institutions to step away from the dark ages of spreadsheets and un-trackable requests, and instead provide their students and alums with an organized and pleasant web experience.
In this 2-minute interview, Michael Laurie, VP of Product Strategy at eSignLive, talks about how regulated organizations need to follow rules when executing digital transactions with customers and business partners. He explains the importance of dual audit trails, and how they provide the ability to demonstrate compliance and prove not just what was signed but HOW it was signed – and that’s always what people want to know.
Shift the balance from running the business to changing the business

The growth of multichannel support and BYOD policies has opened up a plethora of new avenues for customers to engage with IT support. This has the potential to create a richer, more satisfying experience for the customer, but savvy support organizations recognize that it isn’t good enough to simply replicate the same service in different channels. It’s really about maximizing the customer experience for each unique channel and device. In this session, you’ll find out how progressive support organizations have harnessed the potential of “any time, any place” support to drive and sustain high levels of customer engagement. You’ll review case studies and benchmarking data that illustrate the power of multichannel, multidevice support in today’s complex IT enterprise.

IT’s desire to become more nimble and agile has resulted in the rapid adoption of cloud delivered applications. This is not limited to the heavy hitters like salesforce.com for CRM or Office 365 for productivity. There are also applications servicing tasks and functions organizations might choose to outsource. The result is critical data spread across a vast array of resources, both on and off premise. Many organizations may use built-in cloud security functionality on top of their individual legacy deployments. However, this leads to silos of capability, mismatched policies, and noise in the form of alerts needing to be addressed.
Join Forcepoint and 451 Research as we address how taking a human-centric, risk adaptive approach can transform data security programs.

Businesses waste millions of dollars annually on employees participating in ineffective meetings. Yet, the waste continues to fly under the radar of executive leadership teams despite losses in operating expenses and productivity.
In this webinar we will present a framework for running highly productive, effective meetings that any organization can adopt. Specifically, we'll take a closer look at what are generally referred to as “issue clearing” meetings.
These meetings (usually recurring) typically involve 5 to 20 people who work on a shared goal, product or project. These meetings focus on solving problems, making decisions, and aligning individuals and teams. Examples might include: executive leadership, engineering leadership team, product council, project council, weekly team meeting, portfolio council, etc.
We will have short Q&A sessions and interactivity throughout the session.

ITIL, and more broadly, IT Service Management, is now a 31-year-old discipline. It was originally established in the UK under the government of Margaret Thatcher in 1985. For those working in IT Service and Support, the implications of this are profound. First, it means that IT support professionals have an enormous body of knowledge to draw upon for industry best practices. Secondly, it almost always means that other corporate services, such as HR, facilities, safety, etc., are far less mature than IT Service and Support. Savvy IT managers recognize this opportunity, and are increasingly taking up the challenge of providing enterprise leadership in corporate services.
I want to challenge leaders from both IT and non-IT services to give serious thought to the role of enterprise services in your organization. This is the kind of opportunity that doesn’t come along very often. It has the potential to transform the delivery of all services in the enterprise, while saving money and improving the quality of service that your customers receive. Moreover, it can be a game changer for your career. Enterprises worldwide are in desperate need of leadership on this issue. So if you have been looking for that next big career opportunity, it may be right in front of you!
