Pittsburgh IG: CMMI for Services: The Strategic Landscape for IT

Manage webcast
Eileen Forrester
The majority of the US & global economy is now service, rather than manufacturing or trading of tangible goods. Even the development of goods & systems increasingly takes on the character of service. CMMI is a reference model for process improvement meant to enhance the business performance of a wide range of organizations. Recent data from top CMMI users illustrates the quality & other business results that capable organizations get, such as customer satisfaction, higher income, defect reduction, on-time performance, & decreased costs.

This webinar will briefly cover the CMMI for Services (CMMI-SVC) model, focusing on the service-specific process areas (SVC PAs), & show how the SVC PAs can enhance organizational performance. Part of the overview will show the aggressive adoption curve for CMMI-SVC (just released in 2009), including case studies & other industry adoption data. The webinar will also show users how to pick the right model pieces with which to begin adoption, & where to go for adoption guidance.

She is a senior member of the technical staff in the Software Engineering Process Management program at the SEI.

  • Für die intelligente IT von morgen – Highlights und Features von FNT Command 10

    Die tiefgreifenden Entwicklungen der Trends wie „Big Data“, „Cloud“ und „Internet of Things“ ebnen bereits heute den Weg für die IT der Zukunft. Aufgrund der steigenden Komplexität der zu verwaltenden Infrastrukturen besteht für Verantwortliche in IT, Telekommunikation und Rechenzentren die größte Herausforderung darin, die benötigten Informationen zum richtigen Zeitpunkt abrufen zu können.

    Aus diesem Grund wurden die neuen Funktionalitäten von FNT Command 10 mit dem Fokus entwickelt, jeden Anwender in seinem individuellen Aufgabenbereich optimal zu unterstützen. Claudia Lehmann, Product Marketing Manager, stellt Ihnen die neuen Highlights vor, mit denen Sie einen völlig neuen Einblick in Ihre Daten erhalten können.
  • Over 90% of targeted attacks start with email. Criminals create very convincing emails to trick your users into clicking on a link, opening an attachment, or replying with their credentials. The attack methods criminals employ with phishing emails are constantly changing and so must your email security to block these attacks before damage occurs. Learn about the newest trends in phishing email attacks and how to protect your organization.
  • Employee self-service is often viewed by IT as a 'knight in shining armor' since it can provide quicker employee access to both help and new services, while taking some of the pressure off overworked corporate IT service desks. However, for many organizations, their initial attempts to introduce self-service have been more white elephant than white knight – with low employee adoption and utilization rates – often due to an overemphasis on the technology.

    Thankfully now, after many hard lessons have been learned, some organizations are finally getting self-service right. In this webinar, we’ll share how they’ve succeeded, by:

    * Exploring the variety of challenges and potential pitfalls with self-service – including technology, management, and end-user perspectives
    * Offering practical advice and good practice on how to design, launch, manage, and encourage the use of an employee self-service facility for IT (or any other corporate service provider)
    * Providing sensible actions that will help you to either get started with, or to improve upon, self-service within your organization
  • The economic significance of application management is often underrated. Did you know that about 40% of IT budgets is spent on keeping applications up and running, up to date and under control? But are you getting enough value out of your investments?

    This webinar explores application support, maintenance/renewal and strategy.
    Takeaways:
    - overview of the whole Application Management domain and its relationships with the business and other IT disciplines and external service providers
    - better understanding of the costs and benefits of Application Management and how to influence them
    - frameworks, standards and trends and how to benefits from them
  • Do any of these comments sound familiar?

    - “Only the new people find value in our knowledge base.”
    - “Once our teams learn how to resolve something, they don’t need to use the knowledge base.”
    - “It takes longer to find it in the knowledge base than it does to figure it out.”
    - “Our knowledge base is out dated and cumbersome to use.”
    - "I’ll ask (insert name here), he / she will know the answer.”
    If so, you may be stuck in the knowledge-engineering rut. The Knowledge-centered-support methodology is a proven best practice that overcomes these challenges. Attend this session to learn about the KCS methodology and how you can use it to:

    -reduce the time to resolution
    -standardize answers to your customers
    -lower support costs
    -increase customer satisfaction
    -increase employee job satisfaction

    KCS becomes the way you resolve incidents, answer questions, share your knowledge with peer staff, and in short get people back to work. Because it is part of the Incident process, it is always current and accurate and enables your teams to continually support an expanding breadth of services.

    Additionally, you will hear about the journey of the University of Phoenix, and parent company Apollo Education Group, in moving out of old-school knowledge engineering, “ivory tower” knowledge approaches, and into the realm of real-time knowledge management – using KCS to empower front-line staff content administration, and manage knowledge by positive peer-to-peer relationships. We will discuss the use of the Knowledge-Centered Support (KCS) methodology in a highly-regulated business environment, to capture, structure, and reuse knowledge as new incidents occur and the business environment changes. Our chat will discuss the methods utilized, uncover the “ditches” to avoid, and present the metrics used to measure and prove success.

  • ISO/IEC 20000 CoI - Avoid Best Practice Exhaustion! & Update on ISO Revision Recorded: Apr 30 2015 56 mins
    Mark Thomas and Deborah Anthony
    Learning Objectives:
    •Recognize the various models and standards applicable to value creation and how they fit in the overall framework architecture of an enterprise.
    •Understand the value of ISO standards, with particular emphasis on ISO/IEC 20000, within the enterprise context and how it can assist in creating value to stakeholders.
    •Identify approaches to implementing standards based on a recent ISO/IEC 20000 adoption case study.

    Synopsis:
    Navigating the field of frameworks and standards can be exhausting. Couple this with the pressures of creating value for the enterprise, and one can easily see how many service providers fall short of expectations when adopting frameworks and standards in their organizations. When driving towards creating value, consider a business approach to selecting the practices that are best suited for optimizing resources and risks that incorporates multiple standards. In this insightful presentation on frameworks and standards integration, explore the many models that are available today: what they are, how they fit, and why choose them. Most importantly, we will look specifically at frameworks and standards such as ITIL, COBIT, and several Bodies of Knowledge and ISO standards to provide a holistic approach to creating value and avoiding framework overload.
