Hi [[ session.user.profile.firstName ]]

Leveraging Data from Disparate Silos for Config & Change Mgmt.

Successful Configuration and Change Management requires data from multiple sources. In addition to the configuration data that typically lives in the CMDB, to get a complete picture you must often pull together supplemental information about software applications. Information about software applications comes from diverse IT groups such as Operations, Security, Finance, Data Management, Help Desk, Project Management, and Enterprise Architecture. Each of these groups typically maintains a silo of their own information about software applications, which information could be quite valuable for Configuration and Change Management processes. You can’t force these groups to get rid of their own silos of information about software, so how can Configuration and Change Management processes use their data effectively? This presentation explains a case study in federating and harmonizing data about software applications from multiple silos.

  • ITSM and Digital Transformation – the Business Benefits Jul 16 2019 8:00 am UTC 45 mins
    Mark Smalley, the IT Paradigmologist
    If we didn’t have IT service management, we’d be in a right mess. But how do you identify and articulate the benefits of ITSM in terms that business people understand?

    Starting with familiar ITSM notions such as utility and warranty, this talk explores how these relate to tangible business benefits such as more sales, higher prices, and lower costs and risks. Is ITSM just about keeping the lights on, and is it just as difficult to relate ITSM effort to business benefits as it is to say how much the cleaner’s broom contributed to last month‘s sales? This talk lets you decide for yourself.

  • The Four Levels of Thinking as a Geek Leader Feb 20 2019 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Tom Cooper, Principal Geek, Bright Hill Group
    As a highly technical expert, you have been successful because of your expert skills. People hire and promote you because of your talent and ability to solve hard problems. This is true. It's also not enough.
    What no one tells you is that you're only looking at one of the three factors that lead to career success.
    In this session, you will:
    - Learn the other two factors (and what you should do about them)
    - Learn the four levels of thinking needed to be an expert who leads
    - Assess where you are in each of the areas
    - Identify at least 2 practical things that you can do to improve your influence, get more support for your ideas and projects and gain more respect as a professional.
  • Evolving DevOps: a Service-Oriented Perspective Recorded: Feb 5 2019 45 mins
    Mark Smalley, the IT Paradigmologist
    Service is about the intentional and dynamic configuration and interaction of the service provider’s and the service consumer’s resources (in the broadest sense of the word).

    In an IT service context, IT service is all about the underlying IT service resources such as applications and infrastructure are configured and how they interact, together with people and organization, partners and suppliers. You can’t actually do anything with IT service apart from define it and provide it – if you want to do anything substantive, you have to act on the underlying applications and infrastructures.

    DevOps is about doing substantive things to and with applications and infrastructure. Contributing to the emergence of IT service when all the stars are aligned. The stars need to be aligned because of all the other disciplines (and often organizational entities) that also play a role.

    Using these concepts gives you a better grip on who is (probably) responsible for what, enabling you to establish a better working relationship.
  • Delivering ITSM For Business Maturity: A Practical Framework Recorded: Jan 31 2019 44 mins
    Beverly Weed-Schertzer - Executive ITSM Consultant, edifyIT
    ​We are in confusing times when it comes to adopting ITSM to deliver functional technology services to the business. ITSM seems to be out-dating itself with ever-changing operating models. This can negatively impact strategies to mature IT and the Business together. The role of IT provider over the last three decades of rapid technological advancement hasn’t adapted nearly enough to mature the company.

    You may of heard this many times - "IT must focus on aligning to the business and have a primary focus on service integration". Is your ITSM program working to achieve this focus? Most likely you are among the growing population that is failing or missing the target in order to achieve results with ITSM that ensures business quality and maturity. Listen to Beverly Weed-Schertzer as she explains a fresh perspective on ITSM from practical experiences spanning over three decades.

    Take back control of your ITSM program!
  • SAFe and ITIL – Friends or Foes? Recorded: Jan 31 2019 55 mins
    Barry Corless, Business Development Director (Best Practice), Global Knowledge
    I was recently working with an organization where Developers and Operations were fighting what one person described as ‘religious wars’. Developers in the world of Scaled Agile (SAFe) and Operations with ITIL. Different planets. Or were they? We sat down and looked closely at the guiding principles of both SAFe and ITIL and decided that they actually were much more closely aligned than we thought possible. The webinar will highlight the findings with tips for your journey.

  • Should we still be optimising ITIL for today’s digital services? Recorded: Jan 31 2019 35 mins
    Steve Morgan - Director, Syniaid IT
    ITIL has long been established as the de-facto framework for the management of IT services. However, the world has moved on. Our IT services are delivered differently and the tools we use to deliver them are commonly cloud-based or delivered by complex multi-vendor models.

    Like a prize-fighter, ITIL is being dusted-off for one last crack of the title, whilst new younger fighters enter the ring. Should we still be looking to optimise our processes using ITIL as a reference point? What other alternatives are available?

    This presentation will look at how to use ITIL as the basis for an effective IT operating model, and what else you ought to be looking at to successful deliver today’s complex digital IT services.
  • Radical transparency in DevOps and ITSM for an excellent customer experience Recorded: Jan 30 2019 39 mins
    Nancy Van Elsacker Louisnord - President, TOPdesk USA
    For many organizations, the prevailing impact of DevOps on service delivery within ITSM is more prominent now than ever before. When your Dev, Ops or both processes are outsourced to one or multiple vendors, it complicates everything for your organization, its users and leadership even more. Add to that the increased importance placed upon service teams to improve customer experience and you can see how ITSM and DevOps are siloes that must be broken down.

    Knowing where DevOps, ITSM and business principles originate and how to align them is a first step towards better service delivery. However, achieving a truly excellent customer experience takes radical transparency throughout the entire service chain.

    In this presentation, Nancy will walk you through the varying steps you can take to achieve excellent customer experience by aligning DevOps and ITSM. She will define what radical transparency looks like at the various parts of the chain -- whether your Dev, Ops or ITSM processes are in-house or outsourced.

    Nancy Van Elsacker Louisnord is the president TOPdesk USA. She’s also a public speaker, a contributor to numerous leading industry publications and a service management expert.

  • DevOps Pipeline Conversations: Improving Your Plumbing Recorded: Jan 30 2019 50 mins
    Simone Jo Moore, Service Management Mixologist & Human API, SJM
    It’s all about the interactions! Each organisation is different in the way it is structured, how it
    communicates and what capabilities are in place to deliver their services. So, it follows that the
    pipeline of ‘how’ their processes move through the organisation is also different. Simplicity and
    smooth-flowing operations takes more than DevOps. Help unlock the combination of DevOps, ITIL
    and other ITSM Practices. Build a strong base from which to take the next leap into the future by
    making your pipeline of processes viable, dynamic and useful. Simone takes you through the
    process conversation, improving the H2H component (human-to-human) and being effective in
    bringing it together.
