Liz Beavers, Head Geek, SolarWinds
IT service management (ITSM) has morphed over the years, thanks in large part to technology and the environment. Even as ITSM practices and channels evolve, a core component that remains constant is identifying the relationships across your infrastructure and understanding the implications that updates or changes will bring. While workforces transition and strengthen their remote operations, it’s more important than ever to keep business applications and services running smoothly in order to maintain cultural values and positive user experiences.
Join Liz Beavers, Head GeekTM at SolarWinds, as she showcases the value behind Configuration, Change and Release Management and the benefits your organization can reap by implementing these practices. Liz will dive into considerations for establishing configuration records and relationships, as it aligns with business goals, as well as how your Configuration Management Database can uncover trends to support data driven decisions for changes and releases. Over the course of this session, we’ll explore weaving technology and automation into these ITSM strategies to enhance visibility, improve communications, and streamline operations.
About the speaker:
Like many IT professionals, Liz’s entry into the tech industry was unconventional. With plans to pursue a career in public relations, Liz’s career quickly took a turn toward technology. She got her start working as a customer success manager with a research platform for the financial industry prior to joining Samanage, now SolarWinds Service Desk.
Prior to becoming a SolarWinds Head GeekTM, Liz served as the technical point of contact for SolarWinds Service Desk customers. In this role, she combined the best of both worlds: her passion for communicating with prospective and existing customers while leaning on her multiple ITIL certifications to provide ITSM best practices to help alleviate pain points, work smarter, and streamline service desk operations.
