  • Certain Uncertainty
    Certain Uncertainty Evan Leybourn, Founder and CEO, Business Agility Institute Recorded: May 17 2018 48 mins
    The world is changing more rapidly than ever before and organizations of every size are struggling to remain relevant in the eyes of their customers. The simple fact that the average lifespan of a company has decreased by more than 50 years in the last century demonstrates that not all organizations are prepared for this new reality. It is only high-performing, adaptable and agile organizations that will leverage, lead and thrive in this ambiguous and unpredictable market. We call this business agility.

    The problem with a statement like that is that there is no common definition of what business agility means. And that’s actually a good thing. In a dynamic and changing market trying to lock it down will defeat the very advantage it brings. Instead, I want you to start thinking of business agility as the common thread. An adaptable and sustainable narrative that binds & guides, rather than directs, us into the uncertain future.
    This session will cover the state of business agility around the world. We’ll look at the Domains of Business Agility, interspersed with case studies from 4 multinational organizations in both the banking and utilities sector.
     
    In this session you will learn:
    • Domains of business agility
    • How to work with Finance and HR to increase agility in your current organization
    • How Business Agility is being adopted by organizations around the world

    How Will Future Technologies Like Automation & Blockchain Disrupt PPM Workflows? Doug Page, Senior Advisor on Strategy, Portfolio and Project Management, CA Technologies Recorded: May 17 2018 35 mins
    An accessible mobile internet and the app economy changed the way we work over the last decade. Since then we have seen a fast progress in the world of automation, machine learning and data sciences. These new improvements in technology have mobilized companies and organizations to be faster and more efficient. But it has also come at a cost.

    With Blockchain revolutionizing everything from retail operations to finance, we will take a hard look at how a combination of these technologies will change the way the PMO operates. We will look at the potential pros and cons of how fast emerging technologies create disruption and how to get ahead of it.
  • Mastering IT Metrics
    Mastering IT Metrics Quentin McPhee, Implementation Manager, Vivantio Recorded: May 17 2018 54 mins
    IT monitoring and metrics play a key role in measuring IT service management success. By properly analyzing, understanding and measuring where the true value lies in your organization, you can effectively analyze risk, add value, reduce the cost of service delivery and boost the overall performance of your service teams.

    But without knowing what to measure, how to interpret the results and how to leverage your organization’s tools and data to make this possible, you’re setting yourself up for frustration and a lack of clarity in your reporting output.

    On Thursday, May 17th, join BrightTALK and Vivantio’s Senior Implementation Manager Quentin McPhee to learn what you and your senior management need to inform IT decision-making and drive sustainable service improvement, in practical terms.

    Quentin McPhee has more than 20 years’ experience in service management delivery and brings significant knowledge in implementing solutions for all types of organizations.

    This session is not just a ‘back to basics’, but rather will set out what every ITSM organization should be measuring and how to interpret the results, plus how to sustain the measuring process to become a self-aware powerhouse. We’ll also discuss:

    •What value reporting on your ITSM processes can realise
    •Different types of reports and who needs them
    •Tips, tricks and best practices to build out, maintain and sustain your organisation’s reporting structure

    We’ll also cover real-life examples of organizations who have improved efficiency through effective data analysis.

    Use value-stream thinking to define metrics and Automation to improve processes. Troy DuMoulin VP, Research & Development, Pink Elephant & Vincent Geffray Senior Director, Product Marketing, Everbridge Recorded: May 17 2018 58 mins
    Today’s digital businesses face more complex threats than ever before.

Therefore solving IT issues as quickly as possible is essential.

    You’ve adopted ITIL and ITSM best practices and your IT teams use lots of point solutions and processes, but are your business users getting the full value of IT? How do you make improvements? Based on what metrics? Are your processes fully integrated? Are the cross-functional teams fully collaborative? How do you measure performance?

    In this webinar, Troy DuMoulin, Vice President of Research and Development at Pink Elephant, and Vincent Geffray, Senior Director of Product marketing at Everbridge will explore:

     How to deliver on four seemingly contradictory objectives: innovation, speed, security, and compliance

    How Will AI, Machine Learning and Robotics Change ITSM? George Spalding, Executive Vice President, Pink Elephant Recorded: May 17 2018 43 mins
    We’ve all heard the buzz words: AI, Robotics, Machine Learning.  But most of us cannot define them.  Few of us know the differences between them or where each one is in their respective development and deployment cycle.  We’ve all heard the hype and we have a sense that there is incredible potential for our organizations and even our lives but we are just not exactly sure what or where or how it fits in.  How will our existing software tools exploit these new technologies to change the way we do Service Management, IT and business in general?  How will these concepts disrupt the value proposition of any Service Provider?  How will my job change?  Will I even have a job?  Join George Spalding, Executive Vice President, Pink Elephant for an in-depth discussion of AI, Robotics and Machine Learning and learn for yourself what’s coming next.

    There are three things that are certain about the future:

    1) IT has embraced Scrum/Agile as the primary approach to software development

  • How to Make the Most of your Metrics: an Effective Reporting Framework
    How to Make the Most of your Metrics: an Effective Reporting Framework Paul Dooley, Optimal Connections Recorded: May 17 2018 49 mins
    There is a lot of guidance in the IT service management world about designing a proper Metrics
    and Measurements Framework; yet without a timely and effective Reporting Framework to sort
    this data, convert it to information, and present it in the right format at the right time to the
    people that need to know in order to make better decisions and take action, a metrics and
    measurements framework will be of little practical use.

    In this presentation, Paul will discuss why and how an effective Reporting Framework is essential
    to converting metrics into usable information that enables knowledge and improved decision making.

    Additionally, we will consider:
    • Why reporting should operate at three levels – strategic, tactical and operational
    • Four key elements to focus your reporting around
    • Why subjective results are just as critical as objective measurements
    • How “visible reporting” can drive people performance at all stages of the life-cycle
    • Which processes rely heavily on an effective reporting framework
    • Common reporting pitfalls, and how to avoid them

    Paul will conclude with 10 keys to designing and deploying a high-performance ITSM Reporting
    Framework.

    Attendees will walk away with an understanding of why a well-designed highly automated
    Reporting Framework that utilizes a “balanced approach”, effective graphics, clear targets, real-time
    as well as periodic reporting, along with analysis and actionable recommendations, is
    essential for IT service management to be effective in delivering quality services, as well as
    reporting the value of such services to all stakeholders.

  • The Next Step: Employee-Focused Service Management
    The Next Step: Employee-Focused Service Management Roy Atkinson and Marc Stitt May 23 2018 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Service management principles and practices have been broadening to encompass far more than IT services over the past few years. HDI research shows that more than half of organizations are using the tools and practices of service management in other business units, such as HR, facilities and customer service. The applications of these proven practices—when done properly—have improved service delivery for business units.

    In today’s organizations, agility and velocity have increased the responsibilities of individual employees, who depend on fast, easily-accessible services to get their work done, from anywhere and at any time. This requires a new focus of service management on employees.

    In this webinar, we will discuss:
    * What service management throughout the organization means
    * Why organizations need to focus on employee success as well as business unit success
    * How the delivery of services affects employee productivity and morale

  • [Ep.15] Ask the Expert: Managing Change in Cloud-Based Systems
    [Ep.15] Ask the Expert: Managing Change in Cloud-Based Systems David Cuthbertson, CEO, Square Mile Systems and Kelly Harris, Senior Content Manager, BrightTALK May 24 2018 4:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    This webinar is part of BrightTALK's Ask the Expert Series.

    Join David Cuthbertson, CEO of Square Mile Systems, as he takes a deep dive into cloud management. Many senior decision makers have negative feelings regarding the issues of technical teams and don't want to bring them to light - data security, change control, lock in to a supplier who overcharges, proper outage stats, etc.

    Just as there is more awareness of outsourcing contract nightmares, many of the same issues apply to cloud providers. Managing change in cloud-based systems is still a relatively new issue as most technical teams don't think about how cloud systems are managed and the potential risks posed by many suppliers without a viable business model.

    Audience members are encouraged to send questions to the expert which will be answered during the live session.

  • Modernize your Legacy Systems Using Anypoint Platform
    Modernize your Legacy Systems Using Anypoint Platform Matt Serna, Industry Marketing Manager at MuleSoft; John Joseph, Solutions Consultant Manager at MuleSoft Jun 5 2018 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Legacy application modernization is an imperative for IT teams that are looking to rapidly develop modern web, mobile, and cloud applications to meet the needs of the business. Typically, these legacy applications become tightly-coupled, stifling IT agility whenever changes need to be made to these applications.

    Furthermore, to get access to their underlying data or services, teams need to work with dated file formats and transport protocols; this is often time-consuming and requires specialized expertise.

    Key Takeaways

    - MuleSoft’s Anypoint Platform supports a variety of different legacy modernization strategies.
    - Teams can approach legacy modernization in a way that creates an abstraction layer between the legacy applications and end-consuming applications––increasing architectural agility
    - Using MuleSoft’s Anypoint Platform, organizations can rapidly connect to common legacy systems, such as IBM CICS mainframes and IBM AS/400, 5X faster using pre-built connectors and templates.
