  • Best practice frameworks are in many ways comparable to the images and advice found in the columns of fashion magazines.

    Join Amy and Drew through an interactive session that shows how mixing and matching frameworks for your organization is much like selecting a wardrobe.

  • Malware today is very different from just a few years ago. Traditional AV technology is no longer able to consistently and fully remediate or defend against today’s most advanced threats. New and emerging threats such as ransomware, social engineering driven attacks and micro variant financial threats are just some examples of difficult to remediate infections. This presentation will take a look at the malware landscape and explain why these tactics are so effective against traditional AV technology. We will examine three specific families of infections and highlight their tactics to evade detection and what issues occur with remediation. Lastly, we will talk about Webroot’s innovation and how our SecureAnywhere AV solution is capable of defending against, and remediating today’s most advanced threats.
  • We may not have flying cars yet but the self-driving car is actually beginning its infancy. With all the technology swirling around us and in our pockets and purses surely the paradigm of the Service Desk has changed as well. Yes and No. Today’s users are bright and more tech-savvy in terms of using technology than ever before. As long as it works. But when something doesn't quite work, they want to solve it themselves using the easiest means at their disposal, Google, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, etc. This might work well from their perspective but not from ours.

    Join George Spalding, Executive Vice President, Pink Elephant, as he focuses on the evolution of the Service Desk and what’s in store for the next 5 years.

  • This webinar will provide you with two complementary perspectives on Business Relationship Management that will help you achieve true romance rather than ending up in unrequited love!
    Based on recent and ongoing interest in Business Relationship Management, there can be no doubt that BRM is a hot topic. Organizations realize that a better relationship between business and IT will result in more business value from the IT provider’s products and services.
    But how do you achieve this from a provider’s perspective? What kind of knowledge, skills, behaviors and processes do you need? And because the relationship is by definition with the business, what do you expect from your partners on ‘the other side of the fence’? How can you help them to fulfil their side of the bargain?
    After listening to Aleksandr and Mark share their two perspectives, there’ll be ample opportunity for you to join in and contribute to the dialogue - you are most welcome!

  • The Service Desk, A Strategic Asset for the Business Recorded: Mar 10 2014 58 mins
    There are many organizations who consider the service desk as a fully operational area which adds no value as such, in fact, they think that the service Desk is there to “repair” or “fix” things and that’s it. For the past six years Mauricio Corona has been conducting a scientific research within Service Desks and other departments in order to answer a detailed question. Does the service desk can provide value to the business? To answer this question, the ITIL process Incident management and the function Service Desk were translated into variables and, at the same time, were measured against business alignment dimensions.The findings were surprising, the Incident and Service Desk variables not only showed that there is a positive correlation with business alignment dimensions, they showed too that they can improve the business operations and value generation when the Service Desk is mature

  • The Business Manager’s Guide to IT Symptomology Recorded: Feb 10 2014 64 mins
    When you buy something you expect a good value in exchange for the money paid - after all it is your hard earned money! Business managers are no different – they expect IT to provide value for the money that is invested in IT services and products.
    Business managers can become displeased when comparing the money spent on IT services to the benefits they get from those services. They voice that displeasure by asking for more from the existing services at the current service costs, or for a decrease in costs for the services currently delivered. To an business manager, everything is in the language of business performance and financial impact.
    There are symptoms business managers should be aware of that indicate where improvements can be made within the business and IT relationship that will result in improved IT service quality and performance. The challenge to making these improvements is recognizing their symptoms.
    This session will describe the symptoms that business managers should be aware of in order to understand the performance of their IT organizations and lead to improvements within the business and IT relationship. Attendees will learn:
    •Typical IT Symptoms that indicate a problem with value
    •How to address problematic IT symptoms
    •IT talking points to use with business executive management to establish IT and business improvements

    David will pontificate, as only he can, on his thoughts about the profession of Service Management with a focus on gaps in the industry and what Service Management Professionals should be thinking about and doing!

  • itSMF USA Higher Education SIG | How to Ride the Maturity Model Wave Recorded: Mar 21 2013 56 mins
    How do you cope, and excel, when you know how your IT department needs to evolve but no one else seems to understand? The process of introducing an organization to a new way of doing things can be very frustrating and uncomfortable.

    This presentation is a pragmatic complement to improvement frameworks such as the ITIL CSI model and John Kotter’s 8-step change model. This webinar focuses on what it’s like to be the person pushing for change, and how to build short-term wins, “anticipated pains,” and feedback loops to successfully “ride the maturity model wave” from one level to the next.

    Speaker Bio:

  • itSMF CobIT SIG | Frameworks, Standards & Models: What's Out There and ... Recorded: Jan 10 2013 58 mins
    Frameworks, Standards and Models - What's Out There and Which Should I Use?

    In the IT Governance environment there are multiple frameworks, models and standards to choose from. A challenge for most organizations is simply understanding what all of these are, and which ones are applicable or appropriate for them. Some common questions include: If we’re using ITIL, should we consider COBIT? How does Kepner Trego fit with ITIL? Will using Six Sigma compete with ITIL’s CSI? How does ISO 20000 leverage ITIL? In this insightful presentation on Frameworks, Standards, and Certifications explore the many models that are available today: what they are, how they fit, and why choose them. We’ll look at the essential information as well as the applicability of the following: ITIL, COBIT, SIX SIGMA, ISO20000, KEPNER TREGO, PRINCE2, AGILE, and TIPA to name a few.
