Big Data: Challenges and Opportunities

With all of the hype surrounding "big data," some forget that these large sets of structure and unstructured data sets come with big obstacles. Challenges such as storage, search, sharing and analysis are only a few of the issues that need to be addressed before an organization can truly tap into big data's potential. What is the best approach to store these data sets? Which characteristics should be considered when analyzing? These questions and more will be answered by this panel of experts as they discuss how big data may provide real value or if it all is just a bunch of hype.

    Daniel Breston, Business Technology Transitionologist, Ranger4
    Continuous is a big word and often used. Continuous Service Improvement, Continuous Integration, Continuous Delivery or Deployment and I am sure you know of several more.

    Continuous is also a scary word as it implies that you are always doing something. Always.

    But Continuous can be a friend and if used as such, Continuous can help make you better than Good. Continuous can help make you great.

  • The Zen of Support! Nov 8 2016 7:00 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

  • Two Speed Transition: Tradition & Innovation – starring Release, Service Catalog Oct 11 2016 2:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Jon Morley, Vawns Murphy and Matt Hoey
    In this fast moving and interactive session - featured at the ITSMF UK 2015 and ICS/ITSMF Ireland 2016 conferences - the itSMF UK Service Transition Specialist Interest Group take on the concept of applying “bi-modal IT” or “two speed ITIL”. Agile, DevOps, the culture of ‘doing more with less and quicker’ are all common examples of expectations on IT service providers in a world where the framework are geared more towards traditional approaches to service management.

    By pitting traditional against ‘new thinking’ approaches across several Service Transition topics (Release Management, Service Catalogue and Early Life Support), the group share their experience on applying the different approaches.

    You’ll get the chance to put your view across through a series of votes and open discussion slots throughout the session…time boxed of course!

    Speakers:
    Jon Morley – Service Transition Manager at University of Nottingham & Vice-Chair of itSMF UK Transition SIG
    Vawns Murphy - Problem & Change Manager at Micro Focus

  • Using Lean IT metrics to streamline ITSM Recorded: Aug 10 2016 49 mins
    David Smith President Micromation Inc. ITSM, ITIL, Lean, Kaizen, ISO, TCO, Author – Implementing Metrics
    Since IT is primarily “Knowledge Work” it’s critical we understand our productivity vs. the value we create. Time is the key factor in calculating productivity. It is also important to know what value-added vs. non-value activities consume our time.

    Leading organizations are tapping into a new Lean IT measurement model to better understand how to measure throughput, efficiency, effectiveness and quality of ITSM services.

    There are three common measurement constraints:
    1. What to measure for value creation, alignment and operational excellence.
    2. Interpreting results. Many lack the skills and methods required to analyze metrics data to support corrective or preventative action.
    3. Getting/trusting data. Underlying data collections systems are not designed to support analytical methods required for management decision making and/or are not trustworthy.

    This session is about how savvy IT managers are implementing a new Lean IT monitoring and metrics and ITSM.

    In 45 minutes we’ll cover: 
    What’s Lean all about
    How Lean maximizes customer value by minimizing waste
    Critical to quality measurement for ITSM
    Value stream mapping technique
    Lean ITSM value stream metrics
    Interpreting result with examples of non-value activities (waste)
    How to get trustworthy data
    How to learn more
    How to get started for no cost

  • How to use a Discovery Tool to Supercharge Your ITSM Program Recorded: Jul 20 2016 66 mins
    Doron Orbach, Bill Dyck, Nick Rendall
    IT departments are constantly searching for new ways to optimize the speed, quality, and cost of their IT Service Management (ITSM) activities. Surprisingly, one solution that is often overlooked in the optimization process is the increased usage of a discovery tool within a configuration management system (CMS) to be the powerhouse for all ITSM, ITAM, operations analytics, and even network management processes.

    This webinar will take a deep dive into the uses of discovery tools and how they can be greater leveraged into all facets of ITSM, ITAM, operations analytics, and network management processes for increased value creation.

    Discovery Tools: Why they’re more relevant than ever

  • Optimizing the Tradeoff: Cost vs. Quality in IT Service and Support Recorded: Jul 19 2016 64 mins
    Jeff Rumburg, Managing Partner at MetricNet
    Cost vs. quality: It’s a perennial issue in technical service and support. Drive your costs too low, and you risk sacrificing the quality of service. Conversely, if you push quality too high (yes, that’s possible!), then you drive your costs through the roof. Understanding the cost/quality tradeoff is the most critical step toward optimizing your support model.

    Using data from more than 300 benchmarks worldwide, Jeff Rumburg will illustrate how top-performing service and support organizations strike an appropriate balance between the cost of service delivery and the quality of support provided. He’ll share simple yet powerful techniques that will enable organizations to pinpoint their position on the cost vs. quality curve, determine if higher (or lower) quality is justified, reduce costs without sacrificing quality, and improve quality without increasing costs.

    Finally, he’ll share an interactive scorecard that organizations can use to determine whether service and support has been optimized, and, if it hasn’t, to identify the tangible steps needed to achieve an optimized support model.
  • What Going Digital Really Means to IT Recorded: Jul 19 2016 64 mins
    Bill Briggs, CTO, Deloitte Consulting LLP Ross Mason, Founder and VP of Product Strategy, MuleSoft
    Almost everyone is undergoing digital transformation, but not everyone knows the right way to do it. In a recent MuleSoft survey, 96 percent of respondents are executing on digital transformation initiatives or planning to do so in the near future. However, the results also showed that just 18 percent of IT decision makers are confident that they will succeed in meeting this year’s digital transformation goals. To do this effectively, IT teams need different skill sets, tools, and more importantly, different mindsets. Join Bill Briggs, CTO at Deloitte, and Ross Mason, Founder and VP of Product Strategy at MuleSoft, to learn how IT can grow beyond “business as usual".

  • The Radical Impact of DevOps on IT Service Management Recorded: Jul 5 2016 45 mins
    Charles Betz, IT Strategist, Architect and Advisor
    What is DevOps? Where did it come from? What do it and the broader Agile movement mean for the enterprise, and for IT service management? The good news is that from a customer perspective, DevOps is one of the best things to happen in years. The challenge is that DevOps has a radically different approach to process, risk management, and IT operating models. It is transforming our basic understanding of how IT work gets done, and even how it is defined.
    Come and hear an experienced enterprise architect and ITSM professional talk about a variety of cases and examples illustrating just how fundamental the DevOps challenge is for ITSM. Key points:
    -DevOps culture, practices, and automation
    -The trend from “project” to “product” management and what this means
    -The Kanban emphasis on limiting work in process and understanding IT demand in a unified way
    As a bonus, attendees will receive a brief introduction to the free, open source project Calavera, a functioning DevOps toolchain in miniature using Vagrant, Chef, Jenkins, and other modern tools. Calavera can be easily installed as a virtual environment on a modern workstation or laptop for training and educational purposes.
