  • A new approach to IT Service Management: Selfless Service Recorded: Jul 18 2018 31 mins
    Sanjeev NC, Solutions Architect, Freshworks
    Service desks are closer to the customers than we can ever imagine. With self-service adoption on the rise and Service desks making it easy for their users to reach them, why do we still hear IT agents complaining users don’t raise tickets? Can we get the Service desk closer to the customers? What if the Service desk lives where the customers are already there?

    This talk explores the possibility of approaching Service management with a selfless mindset focusing primarily on self-service and customers logging tickets with the service desk. A selfless approach takes a lot of effort but not without its benefits.

  • How Can ITSM Exist in the Cloud? Recorded: Jul 18 2018 41 mins
    Daniel Breston, Principal Consultant, Virtual Clarity
    I remember when virtual or cloud became the scary marketing words for any Operations or Infrastructure or ITSM person. My role is going, my skills won’t be needed. Our processes will break. We can’t go that fast!!!

    Now years later – we have seen that what we do underpins what the organisations gets when they adopt and adapt to cloud based services. Let’s see why this happened and discuss how we can continue to be the innovation side of technology just like we have been all along.

    Join me, Daniel Breston, to discuss how ITSM is relevant in the world of cloud or fast technology services delivered by multiple suppliers or technologies.

  • How can static analysis help DevOps teams maintain velocity securely? Recorded: Jul 17 2018 46 mins
    Meera Rao, senior principal consultant and director of the secure development practice - Synopsys Software
    Static application security testing (SAST) is the process of examining source code for security defects. SAST is one of many checks in an application security assurance program designed to identify and mitigate security vulnerabilities early in the DevOps process. Integrating SAST tools into DevOps processes is critical to building a sustainable program. And automating these tools is also an important part of adoption, as it drives efficiency, consistency, and early detection.

    If you have questions like these, and you’re concerned about integrating SAST tooling into your DevOps process, this session will offer actionable advice to automate security testing that supports DevOps velocity.

    But DevOps practitioners looking to integrate SAST tools into the DevOps pipeline often have questions:

    How do I manage false positives?
    How do I triage the results?
    What happens to new issues identified?
    How can I use a tool in my DevOps pipeline?
  • Need for Speed! Digital Transformation and DevOps Recorded: Jul 17 2018 45 mins
    David Smith President Micromation Inc. VeriSM, ITSM, ITIL, Lean, Kaizen, ISO, TCO. Author – Implementing Metrics
    DevOps! Curse or Cure for DT’s insatiable need for speed?

    Many predict mass extinction of traditional jobs as we know them today as a result of digital transformation and disruption.
    No sector or industry is immune or future proofed from what’s about to follow. Traditional businesses and institutions are at risk of being displaced, becoming obsolete or made irrelevant.

    Listen to real-world examples of how some companies are evolving and transforming at an incredible rate fueled by management practices and technologies that didn’t even exist a short while ago.

    The pace of change is accelerating exponentially; are you adapting fast enough?
    What if – you could deploy software 46 times faster?
    What if – you could recover 96 times faster from system downtime?
    What if – you could deploy changes with 80% less failures?
    Would it be worth the hearing about it?

    This session is about how smart companies are deploying new business functionality in the digital age.

     In 45 minutes we’ll cover: 
    * How digital transformation is shaking things up
    * What’s DevOps all about
    * How’s DevOps evolving in the digital age
    * What are the key lessons learned so far

  • Is Digital Transformation ready for DevOps? Recorded: Jul 17 2018 46 mins
    Daniel Breston, Virtual Clarity
    DevOps, Cloud, Digital, Digital transformation; all great marketing phrases. Overwhelmed yet? I remember before the internet. Yes, there was computing going on before then. Yes, we were dependent on IT and Yes we did market our IT capabilities even as a bank.

    But the internet came and wow – life exploded. Call it digital or whatever term you want, the age of making technology a service and a servant is truly upon us and will probably never ever go away.

    So is DevOps, the way of collaborating on the use of technology and introducing new services, the best thing ever? Well, it certainly has started a decade worth of conversation.

    Let’s use this session to see why DevOps is the framework practice for the age of making use of the worldwide collaboration and communication network (internet) and how it will transform the way you lead and act technology services.
  • How to Scale DevOps Without Losing Control Recorded: Jul 17 2018 32 mins
    Mark Debney, Head of DevOps at 6point6
    You’ve successfully dipped your toes into the DevOps ocean. You have a team or teams empowered to build, deploy and run their applications in the cloud with freedom and innovation. You have very likely hired a specialist DevOps Engineer, or two, to kickstart the process. 

    But where do you go from here? How are you able to take this model and empower the wider development teams across your organisation without creating an army of unruly development teams? How do you avoid each team marching to the beat of their own drums, each with a specialist DevOps Engineer and a wholly different approach to automation, governance and security? 

    This webinar aims to answer some of these fundamental questions, with practical advice on how to scale DevOps without being swept away.

    Mark Smalley, the IT Paradigmologist and DASA Global Ambassador
    The title is a cynical reference to the hype around Digital Transformation and DevOps. There’s a lot of confusion and you may be wondering what the terms actually mean and what the relationship is between the two. If we look closer, we’ll see that DevOps has much to support Digital Transformation, but that it’s only one of the pieces in the Digital Transformation jigsaw puzzle.

  • How to Make the Most of your Metrics: an Effective Reporting Framework Recorded: May 17 2018 49 mins
    Paul Dooley, Optimal Connections
    There is a lot of guidance in the IT service management world about designing a proper Metrics
    and Measurements Framework; yet without a timely and effective Reporting Framework to sort
    this data, convert it to information, and present it in the right format at the right time to the
    people that need to know in order to make better decisions and take action, a metrics and
    measurements framework will be of little practical use.

    In this presentation, Paul will discuss why and how an effective Reporting Framework is essential
    to converting metrics into usable information that enables knowledge and improved decision making.

    Additionally, we will consider:
    • Why reporting should operate at three levels – strategic, tactical and operational
    • Four key elements to focus your reporting around
    • Why subjective results are just as critical as objective measurements
    • How “visible reporting” can drive people performance at all stages of the life-cycle
    • Which processes rely heavily on an effective reporting framework
    • Common reporting pitfalls, and how to avoid them

    Paul will conclude with 10 keys to designing and deploying a high-performance ITSM Reporting
    Framework.

    Attendees will walk away with an understanding of why a well-designed highly automated
    Reporting Framework that utilizes a “balanced approach”, effective graphics, clear targets, real-time
    as well as periodic reporting, along with analysis and actionable recommendations, is
    essential for IT service management to be effective in delivering quality services, as well as
    reporting the value of such services to all stakeholders.
