  • 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.

    This webinar will look at ITIL, DevOps and other compontments, and why it’s time to embrace multiple tools and methodologies in Hybrid IT.
