  • Enterprises are realizing that the opportunity of data analytics is maximum when the data is fresh and represents the "current reality" of operations or customer experience. The business value of data dramatically falls with its age.

    As IT and line-of-business executives begin to operationalize Hadoop and MPP based batch Big Data analytics, it's time to prepare for the next wave of innovation in data processing.

    Join this webinar on analytics over real-time streaming data.

    You will learn about:
    •How business value is preserved and enhanced using Real-time Streaming Analytics with numerous use-cases in different industry verticals
    •Technical considerations for IT leaders and implementation teams looking to integrate Real-time Streaming Analytics into enterprise architecture roadmap

  • Problem Management is a game changer. It is critical in developing real quality in service delivery. However, very few organisations actually get this aspect of ITSM working well.

    This fourth session in the ITSM Goodness series will look at how we spend too much time focussing on efficient ‘fire-fighting’ (Incident Management), rather than looking at avoiding recurrence or eradicating faults altogether - ultimately a better solution for customer and provider alike. Often there are some simple misunderstandings around what Problem Management is or what is required to make it work. Also it can be difficult to find the right people to make Problem Management happen, particularly as it is not a simple linear process that can be ‘industrialised’ like Incident Management. This session provides simple clear guidelines on what is needed and how to make Problem Management work well for your organisation.

    This 8-part monthly series is designed to provide real-time value to newcomers and take to the next level those already familiar with the approach.

    ITSM Goodness is an approach created by Barclay Rae to deliver practical, proven, successful and accessible advice and guidance for ITSM and IT professionals. The focus is clear and simple – on achieving the right business outcomes from IT, and how this is delivered, via the Customer Experience.
  • The foundation of success for any company is an outstanding customer experience, but we all know the journey toward creating an amazing service culture is a challenging one. While a great culture doesn’t happen overnight, it IS attainable (really!) with the right approach. Join Joel Daly, HOSTING’s COO, as he discusses HOSTING’s journey: the obstacles, the companies we admire, and the process we undertook to reach excellent service.
  • For many IT Service Organisations the selection of their ITSM toolset is one of the most important, and expensive, decisions they can make. Causing huge disruption and extra work as staff are moved from one system to another. The ITSM toolset is like the engine that drives an IT department and its ability to ensure work is prioritised, integrated and moved between support teams. It is utterly critical to the running of an IT department, but if its so important why do so many IT departments only keep a toolset for 3-5 years before moving to another one and starting the process again?

    Join Peter Hubbard, Principal ITSM Consultant at Pink Elephant, as he shares his experiences on what happens during an ‘out of the box’ toolset implementation program, along with his advice and guidance on avoiding typical pitfalls that many implementations could easily avoid.

    Learn about the critical importance of People, Process and Product working in harmony to make sure that your toolset selection and implementation program delivers real business value quickly.

    Learn why ‘Out of the box’ is a dangerous phrase, and there is no such thing in the real world. Peter will be join by Michael Jenkins, a veteran toolset implementer with over 20 such projects behind him as they discuss what happens in an ‘out of the box’ implementation.

    They will discuss how to pick a toolset, the value of use cases, what happens on the vendor ‘demo day’ and what sort of actions you can be undertaking prior to the chosen vendor starting their implementation in order to speed up the process and make sure that your most expensive ITSM decision returns real value.
  • There’s a sea change taking place in service and how consumer ‘journeys’ are taking place. Howard Kendall, founder of the SDI, has spent much time keeping track of what is really going on, how customer expectations are changing, and how we can use leverage this in the service desk industry.

    Join Howard for an informative discussion on how service desk can successfully rise to the challenge of delivering excellent customer service, meeting, and possibly surpassing, the expectations of the customers they support. Howard will provide some top tips that will help to win the hearts and minds of service desk customers and build stronger relationships with end-user constituents, elevating the position of the service desk within the IT organisation.
