Open source adoption continues to rise, comprising between 60% and 80% of the average application codebase. Open source offers great benefits, but also introduce unique challenges which require dedicated tools to keep up with inventory, detect open source vulnerabilities and ensure license compliance.
Watch this webinar to see how Temenos, a market leading software provider to banks and other financial institutions shares how they automated their open source management with WhiteSource and what benefits they gained.
Agile management has become necessary to survive, but is it enough to thrive? Many organizations have embraced Agile management on the assumption that if they upgrade existing products and services through cost reductions, time savings or quality enhancements for existing customers (i.e. operational Agility), they will realize financial gains. Owing to increased competitive pressures, this assumption often proves incorrect.
Drawing on the findings of his new book, The Age of Agile (AMACOM, 2018), Steve will show how proper portfolio management includes the next frontier of Agile management: Strategic Agility, i.e. generating innovations that create entirely new products and markets, and that turn non-customers into customers. Strategic Agility often offers the prospect of greater financial gains than merely improving the existing business. Steve will show what’s involved in achieving Strategic Agility, including a playbook for systematically generating market-creating innovations and the necessary shift in culture that is required.

Achieving a single pane of glass for performance management has been an elusive goal, as organizations are faced with an increasingly complex mix of legacy, virtual and cloud technologies, as well as emerging operating models and evolving roles/skillsets.
But, monitoring the performance of digital business services demands more than visibility to just the end user experience, applications, or the underlying infrastructure. It requires an ability to automatically anticipate and isolate performance issues across a heterogeneous mix of technologies, devices and suppliers.
Digital business services are how end users experience IT, and that is how IT services must be managed. Achieving unified performance management will continue to be elusive until all stakeholders are aligned with this approach.
Join this webinar, as John Worthington, Director of Product Marketing at eG innovations, details some best practices for achieving the single pane of glass vision. Attendees will receive the related White Paper, "Best Practices for Achieving Transparency in Digital Business Services Monitoring".
In this webinar, you will:
-Learn how monitoring can be leveraged in continuous improvement and other transformative change programs
-See how converged APM/IPM can accelerate achievement of a single point of glass for performance monitoring
-Identify some best practices you can apply for achieving unified monitoring and improving organizational transparency
Transform your entire organization, not just a part of it. Take a modern look now that the world is focusing on business agility rather than thinking about team-level or even scaled Agile.
Many people and businesses believe that “doing Agile” will solve all their business and organizational problems. The truth is that “doing Agile”, especially team-level agility, is not the same as being an agile organization.
Authors Doug Dockery and Laureen Knudsen share their years of experience in transforming corporations and organizations to successfully compete and win in today’s fast-paced markets. Using proven techniques and stories of actual experiences in a multitude of organizations, Doug and Laureen relate what it takes to successfully transform your organization, as well as how to tell if your transformation is working.
This webinar details what you need to know to transform your business to deliver value and thrive. Coverage includes:
•What Agile means to an executive and the benefits you should be seeing
•The top failure modes and why so many transformations fail
•A framework for success, including an operational framework and a transformation framework
•How big data internal to a company is needed to successfully run a world-wide corporation today
•The definition of a modern business and what it looks like
The key to integrating ITSM and Infrastructure Configuration Management is awareness, expectation setting and communication. But with many CMDB/CMS implementations failing to deliver the value expected, organisations are realising how tough this can be and how complex and wide-ranging infrastructure asset and configuration management is. In this webinar David Cuthbertson looks at how to avoid de-scoped or failed Configuration Management implementations and how to put in place effective risk management processes.Read more >
Lunch+Learn Webinar Series -
As competition for talent continues to grow increasingly fierce and voluntary turnover rates are on the rise, a new reality has recently emerged in the mindset of the modern workforce: Career Management is extremely important to individuals and is gaining importance as a key deciding factor of whether talent will stay—or leave—an organization.
Employees now expect employers to provide them with opportunities to help develop their careers. And they will seek it from other organizations if their current employer does not meet this need effectively.
Right Management recently conducted research on the importance of career and uncovered that CAREER is increasing as the primary driver of employee retention and engagement.
Join us as Colleen Neil-Dal Bello and John Sinclair from Right Management share research and best practices regarding:
+The shift from “Job for life” to “Career for me”
+Tying career management to strategic business objectives
+Building a culture of career management
+Benefits such as strengthening employment brand, attracting and retaining key talent, building strong leadership pipelines, and increasing employee engagement
The world of career management is changing. Is your organization ready?
Why can’t we still be more successful in rooting out issues and getting them fixed for good? We still talk about Problem management being the great opportunity to step up and improve overall service quality – why don’t more organisation make this happen successfully?
Maybe its about how we view what problem management actually is and what is need to do it. The key word here is Management – ie not just process or procedure. We need to understand the key element required for delivery in order to make this successful and this session provides practical guidance on how to identify and deliver these things.
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.
Amid the recent market turbulence, how can investment managers focus on the most important job of responsibly managing the wealth entrusted to their care and avoid being swayed by economic forecasts and market volatility?

* the extent to which events can change the valuation of assets
* the relative attractions of the myriad asset classes available to multi-asset investors
* the likelihood of achieving decent returns from those assets in the context of the market cycle.
