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

To ITILity - and Beyond!

The ITIL service catalog is a useful tool as far as it goes, but often that is not far enough. Long-established IT support consultant and author Noel Bruton will argue that, taken from appropriate principles, the design of the service catalog can go much further.

With the right strategy at the outset, the service catalog process can and should inform such crucial decisions as staffing structure and numbers, service ownership and authorities, skillsets and potential points of failure. The service catalog should be more than just a list of outputs - it should be at the heart of a manufacturing plan for the IT services factory floor, with all that necessarily implies.

But there is another emerging pressure that will test the traditional service catalogue to its antiquated roots. This is from the ubiquitous and accelerating rise of users' own tech in the workplace and the blurring of the very definition of "workplace" itself.

Bruton will argue why and how these developments give even more impetus to see the service catalogue more as the first draft of a factory production plan for both present and future challenges. He will describe in outline how such an approach may look.

  • 5 Ways DevOps can cure “Bad ITSM” Recorded: Jan 16 2018 38 mins
    Doug Tedder, Tedder Consulting LLC
    Is your business suffering from “Bad ITSM”? You know, where every request for change goes before a
    CAB. Or an SLA is whatever is configured in the ITSM tool. Or “services” are defined as things that IT
    does, not what IT delivers in terms of business outcomes and value. Sound familiar?
    Meanwhile, you’re reading and hearing a lot about DevOps.
    Maybe DevOps is just what your ITSM implementation needs!
    Get some pragmatic insight and advice from Doug Tedder in this informative webinar and learn five
    ways that DevOps can fix a “bad” ITSM implementation.

    In 2018, we use Hybrid IT to deliver, enable and facilitate organisational and business-driven outcomes. Yet organisations differ over whether they prefer ITIL or DevOps to support their fast-changing IT environments.

  • SIAM – Where are we now? Recorded: Nov 15 2017 45 mins
    Steve Morgan, IT Service Management, IT Management and SIAM Consultant, Syniad IT
    Service Integration and Management (SIAM) has been prevalent in the industry for a number of years. As more and more organisations look to adopt SIAM strategies, how is the concept of SIAM evolving?

  • SIAM The GOOD, the BAD … the OBLIGATORY and the VIRTUOUS Recorded: Nov 15 2017 60 mins
    Simon Dorst & Michelle Major-Goldsmith, SIAM Managers, Kinetic IT
    Service Integration and Management (SIAM) is the new black. In recent years SIAM has attracted the attention of business leaders challenged by a new reality, dealing with complex IT environments where services are often sourced from a number of service providers. SIAM has a different level of focus to traditional multi-sourced ecosystems with one customer and multiple suppliers. It provides governance, management, integration, assurance, and coordination to ensure that the customer organization gets maximum value from its service providers.

    Join the SIAM Professional Lead Architects, Simon Dorst and Michelle Major-Goldsmith and they will take you on a journey to consider what SIAM really means, the various forms it can take, the business drivers and benefits and the main considerations when seeking to move to a SIAM ecosystem. They will explain the transition of SIAM from its roots within UK government in the early 2000’s to the formalization of SIAM as a management methodology with fully defined, practices, layers, structural areas and roles and even professional training courses and associated accreditation.
