Service Desk Optimization for ServiceNow

Moving to a new service management platform is a big decision and getting the value out of this investment does not come automatically. It takes vision, planning, execution and expertise in how to leverage all the power of the platform to create a dynamic system of engagement, record and insight to begin the transformation to Digital Service Management.

Without these key steps, the business and technology goals of automation, visibility and the consumerization of IT can be lost. Having an experienced partner for this platform can accelerate your time to value by having your partner optimize the platform while you concentrate on running IT like your business and focusing on your customers.

Join us as we discuss with Greg Stevens, Service Delivery Guru at Unisys how to optimize the ServiceNow Enterprise Cloud Platform to create the next generation service desk. We will highlight areas of focus such as creating a well-designed user portal, how to organize the channels of engagement, to practical applications of automation.

    Major incidents are characterized by a high level of complexity and high priority to the business.

If you have the right set of people, processes and technology in place, a major incident need not result in confusion and chaos. The true essence of major incident management lies in not only in quick and efficient resolution of major incidents, but also in creating and delivering value within the team and outside it. In this engaging webinar, Richard Josey, Service Management Architect, discusses the operational and psychological dimensions of major incident management and highlights the key areas that organizations need to work on to ensure that they have efficient mechanisms in place to tackle major incidents.
