  • AI and Automation to Manage Support Requests in the New Remote Workplace Aug 21 2020 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Christos Karafeizis, Founder & CEO, Gaspardesk Inc
    Over the last few months, we have seen a dramatic shift on how companies operate. Now, more than ever, due to the Coronavirus outbreak, employees need to be empowered to work from home. Companies must not delay the digital transformation required to become remote-first or remote-enabled. They must leverage the latest AI and Automation models as their building blocks to increase employee productivity while controlling headcount needed for their service desk teams and overall IT operations.
    Join this interactive webinar if you are interested in learning about the following topics:
    Shifting focus to the employee and having an omnichannel self-service experience that is available 24x7.
    Implementing automated agents to resolve employee repetitive service requests without human agent’s involvement.
    Using Intelligence Augmentations (IA) to enable service desk agents resolve tickets more expediently.

    Stan Feintstein, President of Project Remedies Inc.
    Stan Feinstein, President of Project Remedies Inc., discusses and connects accelerating automation, and continual service improvement. While AI applies to tasks that can be performed in nanoseconds, continual service improvement involves processes that take much longer.

    In this session, Stan outlines:
    - How to set up a continuous service improvement program
    - The issues involved with a service improvement program
    - The importance of AI when setting up a successful and long lasting program
    - Techniques used to automate processes and capture performance metrics
  • Forget the CMDB, it Will Never Be Your Friend! Aug 21 2020 12:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Rob Akershoek, IT Management Architect, Fruition Partners, a DXC Technology Company
    Almost no organization has a solid CMDB underpinning their IT processes. You probably also have a CMDB that is not up to date nor equipped to do the job, despite all efforts including implementing automated inventory and discovery.

    The question is: should we even try to manage the CMDB in this dynamic cloud ecosystem where resources are dynamically deployed and turned off again? Is the current approach to the CMDB suitable for the new multi-vendor digital ecosystem with micro-services, containers, and cloud (e.g. IAAS, SAAS)?

    In this session we will discuss:
    - How CMDB will evolve
    - How to get configuration management on track
    - How to ensure CMDB is up-to-date
    - Why CMDB initiatives have failed, and how to fix this approach
  • Does Virtual Collaboration Virtualize Continual Improvement? Aug 21 2020 10:00 am UTC 60 mins
    Robert S. Falkowitz, General Manager, Concentric Circle Consulting
    What does Isaac Asimov have to do with virtual collaboration, COVID-19 and continual improvement? Some people will tell you that the future of work, and consequently how we improve, will be utterly changed. Others cannot wait to return to their old ways of working. Rather than believe there is a single truth, continual improvement is part of an evolving system of labor, behavior and belief. Many of the concepts we think are innovative and recent are, in fact, old and well established.

    This presentation examines the connections among the principles underpinning older and more recent approaches to continual improvement. It looks at practices that we should probably try to conserve and practices that are best laid to rest. Sociological and neurological research of the past decades has provided many lessons for improving how we work.

    How does virtualization and social distancing impact these lessons learned? What Asimov knew 70 years ago may still be of value to us today.
  • Driving Cost Reduction Aug 21 2020 8:00 am UTC 60 mins
    Sebastien Adjiman, CEO and Co-Founder, Deepcoding
    Deploying Intelligent Routing in ServiceNow using the Deepcoding Delivery Intelligence Platform

    DeepCoding’s unique AI technology leverages the existing deep-data located in your IT service delivery management tools, such ServiceNow or BMC Remedy, to perform a comprehensive diagnostic of the service delivery organisation. This pinpoints the source of issues affecting their systems, support and users.

    This deep-data can be used to train our cognitive engine, to provide unique real time capabilities such as Intelligent Ticket Routing based on our patented skillset scoring algorithm, automatic emerging problem detection and abnormal incident spike detection. The tickets are automatically routed to the right individual, team or robot based on their skillset and historical efficiency in solving that type of ticket.

    In this session we will discuss how to:

    - Reduce pick up time and resolution time, while reducing the overall number of tickets.
    - Identify problems using NLP to group data of similar tickets into AI based clusters
    - Reduce overall MTTR
    - Increase agent skill-sets and identify training opportunities, by identifying highest performers
    - Improve Knowledge Base accuracy
    - Improve internal and external service levels, by introducing dynamic SLAs and OLAs
    - Increase NPS by monitoring the customer satisfaction

    After this session you will see how DeepCoding complement ServiceNow and BMC Remedy and help you drastically improve your main service delivery metrics.

  • Achieving IT Transformation Using Agile Methodology at the Service Desk Aug 19 2020 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Nancy Van Elsacker Louisnord, Strategic Advisor, Force Agile
    For IT organizations to transform into a valued business unit, they need to better understand their impact on the commercial activities and outcomes of the entire organization.

    The service desk can play a critical role, as it can be the driving factor for achieving higher employee—and customer—satisfaction. Due to its functional nature, IT is often sidelined and sometimes considered to be a necessary, though costly, burden. However, by adopting an agile approach—fully supported by an organization's leadership, employees, and technology—the service desk can not only be the catalyst but also an enabler towards real IT transformation.

    In this presentation, Nancy Van Elsacker Louisnord will discuss:

    - How to establish a way of working that supports agile methodologies and the ITSM/ITIL framework
    - How to achieve a business-engaged, customer-centric and outcome-driven IT Unit
    - The benefits of an agile service desk
  • AI opportunities for Service Management confidence Aug 19 2020 12:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Barclay Rae, Barclay Rae Consulting Ltd.
    As more options become available in automation and artificial Intelligence (AI), it can be daunting and challenging to wade through the various types of technology and identify where benefits can be achieved. There may also be some reticence from business areas to using automation, where previous good levels or personal support have been established.

    In this session we will discuss:
    - Some simple guidelines in terms of business benefits
    - Operational opportunities
    - Overall improvement expectations that can be achieved from AI in the ITSM world
  • MAIDE for SIAM Aug 19 2020 10:00 am UTC 60 mins
    Michelle Major-Goldsmith & Simon Dorst, Kinetic IT
    SIAM has been around for some time now, and the publications of the SIAM Bodies of Knowledge has helped to codify the best practice common sense around managing multiple service providers, mainly through the introduction of the service integrator.

    But in our experience, many organisations still struggle with the concept and structure of that service integrator layer and thus could benefit from a practical example SIAM model.

    The MAIDE model presented is allows customers to take control of their SIAM ecosystem, allowing them to divide the service integrator functions in a managed way, retaining control in areas they deem appropriate for their organisation and giving clear guidance and expectations on the areas they want to outsource.

    Speakers:
    Michelle Major-Goldsmith Manager, Service Management Capability, Kinetic IT
    Simon Dorst Manager, Service Management Services, Kinetic IT

  • Are Chatbots Dead? Learn how Chatbots have evolved into Virtual Assistants Aug 18 2020 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Muddu Sudhakar, CEO, Aisera
    Ninety percent of chatbot projects failed in 2019—yet 100 percent of customers are

    optimistic about their benefits and are willing to deploy them again in 2020.


    In this session, we cover the key reasons for the failure of chatbot projects, such as offering

    robotic & scripted experiences, lack of AI capabilities, and long time-to-value. With the

    the emergence of true Virtual Assistants, companies can now take advantage of

    cutting-edge AI that is far more accessible and can deliver tangible business results

    from Day One.



    Key Takeaways for Evolution from Chatbots to Virtual Assistants
