A lot of people have said many things about Service Catalogue. But what is the reality? Has the Service Catalogue, as defined by ITIL V3 in 2007, been able to keep up with the demanding, highly tech-savvy, consumerized workforce? As a leading Service Catalogue tool vendor, we see these realities first hand… and we believe the ITIL V3 Service Catalogue is nearing its end!
This may sound strange coming from a Service Catalogue vendor, but we have seen a definitive shift in focus and we feel this is a game changer. So join Biomni’s CEO Angus Gregory and ITSM commentator Rob England (aka @TheITSkeptic) for a lively debate on what the world’s leading IT organizations are actually implementing and the business value that they are driving for IT and the businesses they support.
Explore the science that makes for effective topic-based authoring with DITA. Semantic specialization should be a leading differentiator for selecting DITA for projects, yet it is one of its most underutilized features. Information Typing is truly at the heart of DITA, yet it is one of the most poorly understood concepts behind creating effective DITA topics. Content reuse is cited as a primary reason for moving to DITA, yet it is one of the hardest features to deliver expected gains in reliability, efficiency, and consistency over time.
Join Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, and Rob Hanna of Precision Content, for this free, one-hour webinar where attendees will learn to look at concept, task, and reference in a new light, see the value in effective semantics, and consider new guidelines for writing for reuse.
We also hope you will join us for a follow-on webinar with Rob Hanna on August 18 — Advancing the Science Behind Intelligent Content. Check out the Content Wrangler channel to sign up!

93% of respondents to the 2016 Citrix Performance Survey see Citrix XenApp and XenDesktop as two of the most performance sensitive technologies in use in enterprise networks today. Slow logins, frequent session disconnects and slow screen refreshes are just some of common complaints that Citrix administrators have to deal with these days. Furthermore, often when a user complains that their desktop is slow or an application is slow to launch, the issue is not in the Citrix tiers – but instead in the network, the virtualization platform, or storage tiers. End-to-end visibility, root-cause diagnosis and proactive alerting are therefore key requirements for Citrix administrators.
Join us for this webinar, ‘Choosing a Citrix Monitoring Strategy: Key Capabilities and Pitfalls to Avoid‘, where Citrix Certified Expert Rob Beekmans, Senior Consultant with PQR, a Citrix Platinum Advisor, and Srinivas Ramanathan, CEO of eG Innovations, will discuss the key requirements of effective Citrix performance monitoring as well as common pitfalls you need to avoid.

The banking sector continues to be a driving force of any economy and leading banks are adapting to consumer and technological advances that are presenting a multitude of business opportunities.
Banks can now process huge amounts of data from both traditional and non-traditional sources in Hadoop giving them better insight into both their risks and opportunities. Deeper analysis and insight can improve operational margins and protect against one-time events that might cause catastrophic losses. Join Rob Toguri from EY and Vamsi Chemitiganti from Hortonworks as they discuss how banks are becoming more data-driven and predictive:
· How data is disrupting the banking sector
· Where business value is generated across the banking ecosystem
· What the roles of a banking Chief Data Officer are
· What are the requirements for data governance and compliance
· How leading banks are benefiting from this opportunity
Traditional methods of identity verification are contributing to lengthy and expensive KYC and onboarding processes. Technological advances, regulatory requirements and business necessity are leading organisations to a point where they have to rethink the way identity works.
With so many financial services institutions embracing digital, the big challenge is bringing together information about each client, from multiple systems, to create one accurate client identity. Achieving this, while demonstrating robust and compliant KYC capabilities, is causing costs to spiral.
In this exclusive webinar Jodie Paula Cohen, producer of the acclaimed Identity & KYC conference, catches up with leading Identity expert Rob Laurence, Director of Innovate Identity, to gain some practical insights into how these challenges can be tackled.
Questions will include:
1) How close are we to being able to access digital information about identity in a consumable and trusted way, across industries?
2) Which technologies should organisations be looking into, to support their identity and KYC processes?
3) Is the blockchain a complete solution for improved identity verification, or just part of a wider solution?
4) How can institutions ensure a user-friendly and compliant KYC and onboarding process?
5) What are the challenges and benefits of putting in place a ‘financial services passport’?
The UK government recently published a consultation paper outlining plans to make London a hub for insurance linked securities transactions. But what are these transactions? And what effect will these proposals have?
Featuring presentations from leading Hogan Lovells practitioners, as well as representatives from HM Treasury and HM Revenue & Customs (see below), this webinar will provide an overview of insurance linked securities transactions, including how they are used and why. It will take a look at the government consultation paper and discuss how the proposals might interact with both EU capital markets regulation and EU insurance regulation.
The session will also examine insurance linked securities in the US, from both a regulatory and transactional perspective, to see what insights the UK might glean from a more developed market.
We are especially pleased to announce that the Hogan Lovells presenters will be joined by Lee O'Rourke, head of the insurance linked securities project at HM Treasury and John Stokes, policy & technical adviser at HM Revenue & Customs, who will offer a unique insight into the government's proposals.

Most Single Customer Views (SCV) contain offline data, perhaps with some email history or online data for web-centric businesses, but they very rarely contain both. Integrating online visitor level data with traditional offline data can be extremely challenging. But for those organisations who are able to achieve this, they open the door to a world of new opportunities that enable them to deliver greater, more personalised browsing experiences and one-to-one communications. Intriguingly, it also creates some new digital insight variables, which drive increases in both online and offline ROI.
In this presentation you will discover some of the technologies and techniques that can now be employed to bring your customer's online visitor level data together with their offline data. We will consider options for introducing social media data and how you can manage all this data in a scalable Single Customer View (SCV), including options for coordinating your customer preference management. Finally, we will point you in the right direction for how you can leverage this information through insight led marketing communications and customer journeys.
The session will be hosted by Ian Johnstone, CEO, and Rob Jones, Director at Qbase, who will guide you through the presentation, fielding your questions and sharing their expertise.
