Get Your Cloud Strategy Right!

Manage webcast
Martin Palmgren, IT Strategy and Transformation Executive
As you move to the cloud, ensure that you secure your IT Delivery capabilities with spelled out business objectives to which the IT organization can deliver with an effective service strategy to leverage IT in the execution of the business strategy.

Where security is important, and I would think twice on the data that I would choose to put on the cloud, time to market and cost effectiveness are the critical success factors.

Time to market should not only include “how fast do we get IT services set” but how can we leverage the business strategy execution with IT as we support the end to end delivery of new products / services to market.

  • Kill DevOps. Go Outside-In-Ops, and Kill that too Nov 18 2015 3:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Mark Smalley, The IT Paradigmologist
    While organisations have used multidisciplinary approaches such as Agile and DevOps to improve the quality of, and speed with which , new functionality is developed and deployed, no value is actually realised until users use information and technology effectively and efficiently. Organisation lose 6% to 10% productivity due to IT issues and almost half of this is due to poor use. This presentation extends the traditional DevOps scope to address the actual value realisation from an outside-in perspective.
  • The Zen of Support! Oct 14 2015 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Jeff Rumburg, Managing Partner at MetricNet
    The words “Customer Support” and “Customer Service” accurately describe the role of Service Desk and Desktop Support Professionals. Unfortunately, these words sometimes carry negative connotations, and do not accurately convey the strategic potential of user support. The fact is very few support organizations operate in a Strategic Paradigm. The result is that most do not fully exploit the inherent leverage of user support to achieve a competitive advantage for IT.

    In this session Jeff Rumburg, Managing Partner at MetricNet, will discuss what it means to be a Strategic Support organization, and provide case study examples of support organizations that operate in a Strategic Support Paradigm.

    Attendees of this webcast will learn:

    •Three Sources of Leverage in a Strategic Support Organization

    •Two Metrics to Measure Your Progress Towards Strategic Significance

    •Key Success Factors for Achieving Strategic Enlightenment

    •Benchmarking Results from Strategic Support Organizations

In this session, Doug Tedder discusses how the CSI Register can be just the means to a beginning of a culture and approach to Continual Improvement.

    Daniel Breston, ITSM Consultant
    Continual Improvement is the underpinning foundation of lean and, believe it or not, ITSM. Why is this concept so rarely used or achieved? Why do people feel it is book 5 of the cycle and what is inside as to difficult to understand and introduce?

  • Lean-ITSM: Keeping the business in business Sep 24 2015 9:00 am UTC 45 mins
    Daniel Breston, ITSM Consultant
    Getting a release that is of value based on configuration items that are known, during the cycle of change, has been the hardest aspect of ITSM since it's foundation. However, there are some simple things you can do to create a flow of work that everyone understands, linked to roles and responsibilities, KPIs, and business strategy.

    In part 5 of Daniel Breston's 6 part Lean ITSM series, he explores why IT exists, and how to ensure that what IT creates and delivers is done for good reason and in a value-oriented manner, based on DevOPS, lean, Agile and ITSM.

    Aleksandr Zhuk, President & CEO, Co-founder, BRMI; Mark Smalley, Ambassador & IT Paradigmologist, ASL BiSL Foundation
    CIOs and other IT leaders often feel that they, and IT in general, aren't taken seriously enough by the business. Shallow or non-existent relationships with their business partners, together with the technologists’ often modest non-technical communication skills, impede a meaningful dialogue with the business about the strategic business value of IT. This presentation outlines common issues and provides a roadmap that CIOs and other IT leaders can use to elevate their standing with the business colleagues and stakeholders to support IT transformation into a strategic partner of the business.

How do you create simple governance for IT and the business to ensure that technology is an enabler and not a waste of money? How do you make things better, faster, safer?
