Metrics and Maturity: the Double Helix for Effective Service Management DNA

Creating effective metrics is essential for IT Service Management (ITSM) to evolve as an increasingly critical part of cross-domain service delivery, optimization and planning. However, no two IT organizations are the same, and metrics for measuring IT efficiencies, costs, values and requirements need to be tailored to realistic levels of IT maturity and grounded in unique IT organizational environments.

Join Enterprise Management Associates’ (EMA) Dennis Drogseth for this webcast designed to provide guidelines for building effective ITSM-related metrics based on maturity levels, objectives and readiness, including:
• Guidelines for assessing your IT maturity level
• Metrics associated with each maturity level
• Process recommendations for establishing and communicating key metric priorities among key stakeholders
• Quotes and examples of metrics-related planning from real-world ITSM initiatives

This session is approved for 1 Continual Professional Development (CPD) priSM credit.

  • Projects end, but Services Live On. IT Better Focus on Delivering Services! Recorded: Nov 4 2016 51 mins
    George Spalding, Pink Elephant and Allen Houpt, CA Technologies
    IT has grown up over the last 50 years as a conglomeration of hundreds of projects. And, for better or worse, IT is still in project mode. Someone (usually the business) has an idea to make things better, sells the idea to the executives, gets funding, writes a charter, and the merry-go-round begins. In most enterprises, the big picture doesn’t get propagated to the operational level. In delivering services to the business, even the PMO functions more like a traffic cop than a strategic advisor. Projects, by definition, have a beginning, a middle, and an end. Yet the business’s need for services and value from IT knows no end. The time has come to change the way IT approaches delivering services. IT needs to focus on providing agile, high-quality, ongoing services that the business needs and wants. IT must provide ongoing value to the business; all day, every day. Projects end, but well-designed services live on and on.

  • Introducing the Invisible Mr. Robot: Process Automation for the People Recorded: Aug 22 2016 49 mins
    George Spalding from Pink Elephant and Jim Blayney of CA Technologies
    In 1896, Sakichi Toyoda created “autonomation”, sometimes called intelligent automation. Ever since then manufacturers and, now service providers, have been trying to reduce the number of people involved in nearly every process. There seems to be a prevailing belief that automation is the “magic bullet” to greater efficiency. The downside of humans involves their lack of speed (they are simply slower than machines) and the introduction of human errors into the process. But the upside of people is their brain. They can think, evaluate, assess, question, choose, make decisions and resolve ambiguities. This creates the dilemma we in IT face every time we decide to automate a process. The tools are readily available to accomplish the automation task but have we successfully matured the process to allow it to be automated in the first place or is the “magic bullet” really human intervention? Join Jim Blayney of CA Technologies and George Spalding from Pink Elephant as they noodle on the pros and cons of process automation in IT.
    In this webinar you will learn:
    - What kind of process is an effective automation candidate?
    - How to design a process leading to automation
    - Why the pressure to automate sometimes creates an over dependency on tools vs. solutions?

And IT requires a solid foundation right now to realize the full potential of Lean, Agile & DevOps.

  • Transforming to a Knowledge Management Culture Recorded: Mar 30 2016 48 mins
    Paul Dooley, Exper/Certified ITSM Instructor, itSMF, Jim Blayney, Senior Principle Product Marketing Manager, CA Technologies
    When it comes to realizing success in today’s era of service desks, the importance of an effective and fully integrated knowledge management solution cannot be underestimated. Making the transformation to a knowledge-driven organization is non-trivial, and takes time. Although culture does not change overnight there has been a cultural shift in the workplace making IT organizations take a fresh look at their knowledge management strategy. There is no denying that today’s majority workforce of tech-savvy, self-sufficient millennials are now driving broader acceptance of knowledge as king.

    So why are IT organizations finding it difficult to overcome these cultural and organizational barriers and implementing a successful knowledge management solution? This presentation will explore six key barriers to transforming to a truly knowledge-based culture, and practical ways you can overcome each.

  • Your 2016 Goal: Link ITSM to Human Outcomes Recorded: Mar 30 2016 46 mins
    Elinor Klavens, Researcher, Service Delivery, Infrastructure & Operations
    Today’s workforce is highly technologically literate, mobile and expects great experiences in each aspect of their working life. Your company's best employees must be able to get their work done anywhere and without interruption. They need more flexibility in how they consume and leverage technology. Your ITSM initiative is not cutting it. ITIL has burdened the support organization with up to 26 different process masters, when what is really needed in your ITSM program are processes which are built for the workforce and enabling their productivity. I&O organizations must look beyond ITSM as we know it today and provide workers with pain-free, productive, personalized, and predictive service.

    During the session you will learn about:
    • The current state of ITSM initiatives
    • Why you should pivot your ITSM agenda towards workforce productivity
    • Frameworks that ensure your actions are linked with valuable employee outcomes

  • ITSM in the App Economy. Where are we headed? Where have we been? Recorded: Mar 30 2016 47 mins
    Adam Holtby, Enterprise Mobility & IT Service Management Research Analyst at Ovum
    The Application Economy is having profound impacts on not only how we approach IT and business, but also in the role IT Service Management (ITSM) plays. It is clear that ITSM’s new role, rather than controlling and directing people's use of technology, is now to empower and enable them on both sides of the service desk. This session provides a deep dive into how ITSM has changed over the years. It then will look at new research to give us a glimpse into exactly where we are today, where we may be headed and what we need to avoid.

  • IT Asset Allocation: Driving a Different Kind of Wealth Recorded: Feb 9 2016 60 mins
    George Spalding of Pink Elephant & Michel Avenel of CA Technologies
    Financial advisors espouse that proper asset allocation during times of market volatility can help us sleep better. There is a parallel in the IT world.

  • Are Big Web Search Engines Killing IT Self-Service? Recorded: Jan 27 2016 57 mins
    George Spalding, Vice President of Pink Elephant
    It’s 2016. If you were born after 1980, you probably don’t remember a time without the Internet and the Web. You reach for your smartphone as your go-to device to answer questions, order pizza, find the score of a football game, and check the address of your child’s next soccer game.

    It should come as no surprise, that you reach for your smart phone or use your browser at work to search for an answer when you have a technical issue. The bottom line is that more and more business users are bypassing the service desk and the self-service portal because they believe they can get answers quicker on the web.

    Could this be the beginning of the end for IT Self Service as we know it? Join George Spalding, EVP, Pink Elephant and Jim Blayney, Sr. Product Marketing Mgr. CA Technologies, as they tackle the thorny and divisive issue of whether it’s actually more productive for users to get their own solutions from the web.
  • The Future of the Service Desk: Behaving the Way Your People Do Recorded: Dec 10 2015 55 mins
    George Spalding, Vice President of Pink Elephant
    Continued complacency is not an option! Today’s service desks are hugely misaligned with how business consumers and support analysts actually do things.

    In the past 20 years people and technology have changed, one driving changes in the other; the service desk hasn’t kept up. In fact, this gap is so wide, it is driving business consumers away from IT and causing support analysts to ignore IT processes and SLAs.

    This session will explore these changes and what is being done to bring service desk technology into alignment with users on both sides of the desk.
  • Business People Go to IT as a Last Resort Recorded: Nov 10 2015 59 mins
    Roy Atkinson Senior Writer/Analyst at HDI
    Let’s face it, in today’s world of instant access to information people are conditioned to look for answers on their own, and today’s employees are no different. The modern employee would rather turn to Google when they have a question or turn to their social networks for support long before they go to IT for help.

    The dilemma is that the organization has spent time and money creating a self-service solution to have employees help themselves, but has found that no one is using it and to make matters worse, word around the office is it’s not worth the time and effort to go to IT.

    The reality is business users view IT as an obstacle rather than an enabler. The solution is to provide business users a simple way to connect with IT and remain engaged and satisfied across the entire service delivery and restoration process. Key to driving better adoption is to provide more consistency across any channel of engagement, information and involvement, in each step of the process and in a language they understand.

    Join us for this session to learn how the right ITSM solution can keep customers running at their best and makes IT simple!

At the same time, organizations continue to need to reduce costs and drive operational efficiency to free up resources to support innovation and growth initiatives.

Join us for one of our many insightful webcasts featuring customers, analysts, partners and evangelists as they talk about how you can transform your complex IT service portfolios into well-managed, optimized productivity solutions that make it easier for business users to get what they need, when they need it, while reducing operational cost and driving greater efficiency.
