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

Higher Ed CoI - How to Build Respect for your Higher Ed ITSM Program

In Higher Education you have unique issues. Working to fulfill the needs of academics, researchers, students, support teams and other enterprise groups can leave you feeling pulled in multiple directions. Decision – making authority is not always clear. A process culture may be seen as too “corporate” for your culture.

Join ITIL Expert, Thom Salo, to cover seven steps you can take to work to build respect and buy-in for your IT service management initiatives and super-charge your customers. We’ll cover:
• How to align with various departmental needs/goals.
• Answer the question, “Why do we care about an ITSM program?”
• Managing program expectations.
• Doing what we say we’ll do!
• Feedback – how to get it and use it.
• How to get past “creating” and get on with “adopting and embracing.”
• The role tracking of metrics will play.

  • Unguarded – A Roadmap For Cyber-Security Improvement Jun 28 2018 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Randy Steinberg
    The IT infrastructure management landscape is rapidly changing. Much of what IT used to support, build and deliver on premises is moving up into the Cloud. IT services are moving up and out of the data center and access to these services is moving beyond the four walls of the business. New technologies and devices are spreading and stretching when and where IT services can be used (e.g. Internet of Things). While the shift towards more agile and flexible delivery channels for IT services is creating new business opportunities, it is also creating new business challenges for securing the IT infrastructure and delivering those services safely. How are IT organizations meeting this challenge? What strategies are organizations employing? What technologies, processes and organization changes are taking place to keep the business safe? Learn some answers to these questions and leave with ideas and a roadmap to secure your own IT Infrastructure.

    As technology continues to evolve and becomes a bigger part of everything we do, it’s not just the computers on our desk anymore. The line between field operations and IT has become less clear, and this can affect IT service management.


    Questions for the panel:
    How have changes in technology impacted the relationship between IT and field operations?

    What challenges has this brought to IT service management?

    How is or has your organization addressed those challenges?

  • Simple Solution to Ailing Adoption Recorded: Dec 12 2017 23 mins
    Greg Rowe - Kansas City LIG
    ITIL will be re-written. So how would you do it? What would you want to be simpler or more easy to understand, yet without loosing so much high-quality essential best practices? 

    The President of the Kansas City LIG has a way forward. In an article published in The Source last April he outlined how to re-group the 26 processes in ITIL into three or four sets. In it, the Service Lifecycle takes a back seat to practical organizational functions. 

    Once you have change management and incident management working well, then the rest is simple. You logically expand the base from there. All process still apply while none stand alone.

    This is also a chance to ask an expert. What does your organization look like? What should it be aligned to good practices? Here's how to go forward from there.
  • ITSM CONTINUAL SERVICE IMPROVEMENT Recorded: Dec 7 2017 54 mins
    Brad Utterback, Master ITSM/ITIL Trainer and Consultant
    Soooo… where do you turn to when you want to better align your resources and capabilities with your service strategies and the business goals and objectives? With what’s the least mature? Maybe. Maybe not! What steps would you take to understand on what to improve?

    All IT services, processes, organizational structure and technology are “vulnerable” and hence should be open to the positive impact of CSI.

    This presentation focuses on CSI and the positive impact it can have on the business. CSI's focus is on identifying, prioritizing and choosing improvement opportunities in the Service Organization that will best benefit the business.
  • Continual Service Improvement in IT – Getting the Business to Care Recorded: Nov 30 2017 56 mins
    Lou Hunnebeck
    Everyone is so busy working on projects and on normal daily activities to keep the lights on, there hardly seems time to spend on continual improvement efforts. Any what about the funding?

In our session, we will: •Explore the benefits that continual improvement efforts can provide to the business •Discuss methods of marketing these benefits to gain support and funding Whether improving services themselves, or our associated processes and work methods, returning value to the business is the mission.
  • The Service Desk on the Front Lines of Cyber-Resilience Recorded: Oct 11 2017 61 mins
    Bob Rice
    Don’t be the next news headline!

    Recent theft of business critical information occurred because a Service Desk provided information to a cyber-crook that allowed access to internal business critical servers. The information stolen could impact national security interests.  Why did that happen?  How could it happen? Expensive technology did not stop this breach. How could the Service Desk have been better prepared?

    Security breaches and the theft of intellectual property and personal and financial information are too common. The service desk is KEY to ensuring the early detection of security events and providing the first-line response. So what role should the service desk play in early identification of security events, and how can the service desk best be prepared to respond?

    Are there best practices to provide guidance to develop robust cyber-protection? This session explores cyber-resilience best practices and the impact the service desk plays in response and cyber-resilience.

  • Simplifying Service Response with Standard+Case Recorded: May 4 2017 57 mins
    Brian Newcomb and Edward Gray
    In this webinar, Brian will introduce the Standard+Case approach and discuss benefits for both IT and non-IT service providers.

    Description: Service Management best practice describes many different situations that a provider must deal with. Incidents, Problems, Requests, Events, Changes – all with best practice processes of their own, but while these distinct classifications provide clarity of measurements they can also get very confusing for first line resources handling the majority of customer contacts. The Standard+Case approach can complement best practices while leading to a more efficient adoption and understanding by service provider staff.

    Brian Newcomb is the Director of Technology, Process, and Data Solutions within the Office of Human Resources at The Ohio State University. His team is responsible for aligning HR information systems and related technology with business processes while delivering the data required to drive business decisions. Brian has worked in technical, leadership, and consultancy positions over the last 20 years and has led numerous IT Service Management initiatives and organizational transformation efforts. Today, Brian uses this experience along with industry certifications in ITIL, CobIT, and LeanIT to promote process improvement, maximize value, and foster a customer centric culture.
  • Security, ITSM & IoT Recorded: Apr 12 2017 60 mins
    Jenny Geisler
    As the world of connected devices continues to grow, organizations must be aware of and have the capability of managing all devices that are on their networks.  Now more than ever this includes devices that aren’t owned or operated by IT.  Operational Technology (OT) present on your network can contain serious vulnerabilities and increase the risk to your organization.  ITSM teams play a critical role in bridging the conversations between IT Operations, Information Security, Risk Management, and the business teams that own operational technologies that help to secure their organizations. 
     
    The presentation today will focus on the issues facing Security and Risk Management teams and how ITSM teams can provide solutions.

    Jenny Geisler is a Senior Consultant and Security Capability Leader with Aeritae Consulting Group, Ltd. She has her ITILv3 Master’s certification and has more than 20-years’ experience working on projects focused on governance, process, controls and compliance for many of the Minnesota-based Fortune 500 companies.
     
  • Using Proactive Problem Management to Reduce Monitoring Alerts and Noise Recorded: Feb 8 2017 53 mins
    David Banghart
    In ITIL, Reactive Problem Management is instinctively easier to understand and perform. Proactive Problem Management is murkier. David Banghart presents a concrete example of a successful Proactive Problem Management initiative focusing on server and network devices monitoring alerts. Using collaboration, facilitation, persistence, and data this initiative resulted in a significant decrease in alerts, server / device P1/P2 incidents, and support email / ticket noise.
