It’s been a while since we’ve had a significant portfolio development to talk about in the world of ITIL training, but that is all set to change with the launch of the ITIL Practitioner Certification for 2016!

Given ITIL’s ability to integrate with other forms of complementary best practice guidance, it makes sense to complement ITIL with a proven, well-established standard of best practices for support centers. That complementary guidance is the HDI Support Center Standard.
Attend this webinar to learn more about how ITIL and the HDI Support Center Standard can help your support center rise to meet the challenges of an increasingly global, less platform-centric technology landscape.
Ah, the Service Catalog. Every organization needs one, but few have one they truly love. It sounds so easy, doesn’t it? Create a menu of IT services, then communicate said menu to your customers. Done!
Sadly, the above scenario is a rare one. While most of our organizations have some semblance of a Service Catalog, it’s often a bit of mess, hasn’t been updated in a while, or lives in a perpetual state of almost done. If any of this sounds painfully familiar to you – or if you fall into the camp of not having a Service Catalog at all – be not afraid!
Why not? Because the BEYOND20 Catalog Doctors are here to help (trust us, *we’re doctors)! We’ve seen it all, and have helped strategize, design, and build countless Service Catalogs over the years. Our panel of catalog experts (or **doctors) will be sharing their knowledge, recommendations, and practical advice on how to quickly build a Service Catalog both you and your customers will love - with as little pain as is humanly possible.
*This is patently false. It couldn’t possibly be less true.
**Not doctors. Can’t stress it enough.
Many organizations struggle with defining metrics for business and IT value. Metrics are disconnected from real value in such that after they are defined, no one either pays attentions to them or can make a decision relative to the metrics being reported on. In this session Anthony will discuss how to tie metrics to business and IT value for improved decision making. Including how metrics relate to IT projects and operational efficiency and effectiveness.Read more >
Historically, the viewpoint of change management has typically been that it’s best left for organizations that rely on the established processes and guidelines of ITIL. However, continuous deployment methods and ideologies such as Agile IT, DevOps, and bimodal IT have ushered in a new era of high velocity performance that demand change controls to minimize risk, ensure compliance, and provide total visibility across the entire enterprise.
The question begs - Are traditional ITIL-based processes the only true way to effectively implement change management? Or can there be room in the Agile IT world for change tracking and regulatory compliance without becoming a hindrance to speed and productivity? Join George Spalding, EVP, Pink Elephant and Adam O’Brien, Product Marketing Manager, SunView Software as they tackle the tough questions regarding ITIL, DevOps, and change management within an Agile IT environment!

The business and IT landscape is changing in significant ways...
- Business are demanding continuous delivery of new and improved application functionality, as well as performance
-To help meet this demand, new emerging best-practices such as Agile and DevOps have arrived on the scene, delivering continuous software changes into the live environment
-The trend toward self-service continues, enabling end users to handle most of the simple issues themselves - engaging the service desk only when complex issues arise
-Support issues are becoming increasing complex, driving the need for collaboration, and knowledge sharing across IT functional groups (many of which remain "siloed")
-Customer and user expectations are rising in terms of higher uptime, and faster resolution to any issues
Nevertheless, many IT organizations and support center continue to implement the traditional "tiered support model" in their service desk and support centers, composed of ...
Tier 1 - the front line support team of generalists that tries to resolve most issues
Tier 2 - a second line of specialists that tries to resolve the rest
Tier 3 - a third line of very specialized developers, technicians, and
supplier that deal with the most complex issues
As a result of the dynamics in the changing business and IT environment, the tiered support model - although it has worked and been very popular over the past 30 years - is now coming up short. Many issues end up backlogged in ticket queues, resolution times drag out, costs continue to rise due to the magnitude of escalations, and customer/user satisfaction suffers.
Whether your organization in the middle of a long running ITIL implementation that is failing to deliver the benefits or you are playing with DevOps to solve the problems of continuous innovation that ITIL doesn't solve, it is clear the ITIL framework must evolve.
This webcast focuses on the current state of ITIL in today’s IT-enabled businesses and explores some of the challenges ITIL faces as businesses demand more agility and rapid-time-to-market from their IT organizations, and why there’s hope for ITIL.
