Service Level Management & Cloud Revolution: A Survival Guide

A Google search for ITIL and Cloud generates over 5.2 million results. Rather than targeting the whole of ITIL this session focuses on Service Level Management and how the cloud impacts SLM. The session includes tips based around each stage of Service Level Management. Stages which receive more focus are Agree, Monitor and Improve.

Duncan first encountered ITIL whilst managing branch technology for an insurance company in the 1990s. He joined the training industry in 1998 and has undertaken a number of roles and delivered courses in numerous sectors and countries. At the beginning of 2009 he joined Global Knowledge to deliver training on all of the ITIL curriculum on both public courses and single company programmes.

  • Understanding Change, Release and Configuration Feb 7 2020 4:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Beverly Weed Schertzer, ITSM Business Strategist, edifyIT LLC
    ITSM is dependent on people in the organization to understand it and most people don’t get it. ITSM isn’t a choice it’s a requirement and businesses are losing sight of the core concept of what ITSM practices deliver.

    Understanding Change, Release and Configuration is about providing clarity to help deepen one’s understanding of a major area in ITSM; Change, Release & Configuration Coordination. ITSM is a fundamental aspect in business and its requirements to develop a program that works, and it's sometimes it's more than the common ITSM frameworks can achieve.

    ITSM isn’t a framework to implement, it’s a business function to effectively and efficiently deliver high-value service to customers. Technology is the vehicle to deliver this value, and people are the driving force to ensure the vehicle is controlled, managed, and maintained. Change, Release, and Configuration (CRC) are continuous tasks involved with service delivery.

    In this webinar, Beverly talks about the effects of framework thinking and presents on the importance of understanding CRC in ITSM to produce a high performing service delivery organization.

  • Is ITIL 4 DevOps Ready? Recorded: Nov 7 2019 55 mins
    Rob Akershoek, IT Architect, Fruition Partners
    Most IT organizations are currently working on transforming their existing IT delivery processes, with increasing use of Agile development methods (such as SCRUM), Continuous Delivery and DevOps. As a result of this transformation, traditional ITIL service management processes are being challenged for their relevance. ITIL processes are considered to be bureaucratic, slow and not relevant for the new digital ecosystem consisting. ITIL v3 also have some significant gaps as it didn’t cover the actual design and development of IT services (or products).

    But now in the beginning of 2019, Axelos introduced ITIL 4.

    Does this new version fill in these gaps?
    How to combine ITIL and DevOps?
    Does the digital enterprise still need ITIL 4?
    Or will your DevOps journey fail without a solid service management practice?

    This presentation will show how DevOps and ITIL should be combined in order to optimally manage the new digital ecosystem while at the same time being able to meet the increasingly stringent requirements imposed on IT service delivery.

  • DevOps + ITSM: A Merge Request Recorded: Nov 7 2019 64 mins
    Rob Akershoek, IT Management Architect, Fruition Partners, a DXC Technology Company
    Traditional ITSM practices such as ITIL are being challenged by DevOps teams. Does a DevOps team still need an ITSM system? Can we not just use one single backlog to manage all our work including incidents and requests? Do we still need a CAB for change approvals? Is the traditional CMDB suitable for the dynamic cloud environment?

    Join this webinar to learn all about how ITSM needs be transformed to leverage the DevOps way of working.
