Hank Marquis, Practice Director - Cloud Solutions, Global Knowledge
Cloud computing allows development teams to get applications into production faster. ITSM leaders must adopt new strategies and change existing processes or risk becoming a bottleneck. Successful cloud computing requires the DevOps -- the fusion of development and operations with the goal of accelerating time to market and reducing time to value. The good news is that ITIL is uniquely positioned to accelerate DevOps -- but it requires changes to existing ITSM processes. In this session Hank Marquis will show you:
- How to tune and tweak ITIL processes to shift your operations into high gear and make sure your organization benefits from cloud computing
- The ways cloud changes business, and how IT has to respond to remain relevant
- The changes existing ITSM/ITIL processes require to avoid becoming a bottleneck
- How ITIL is uniquely positioned to facilitate DevOps
