Pittsburgh LIG: Metrics That Matter: Supporting IT Decision & Strategy at the Sr

Metrics That Matter – Supporting IT Decision & Strategy at the Senior Executive Level

IT measurements are meaningless if they don’t provide executives with information to make accurate and timely decisions. Yet many IT organizations produce reams of operational reports that provide tons of information yet still leave Senior Management blind as to what actions to take or whether IT benefits are truly being realized.

This session provides a solid practical approach for closing the loop between what kinds of metrics should be reported on and how Senior Management can leverage results for effective decision making. Actual examples are including nine key IT measurements that may make IT very squeamish with their power to quickly highlight issues.

As a result of this session, attendees will learn about what kinds of metrics matter most and how these fit into an overall model for making key decisions. In addition, attendees will get access to a simple EXCEL-based metrics model that they can use right away within their own IT organization.

  • ITIL4: A journey towards ‘ITSM the Next generation Recorded: Nov 19 2020 62 mins
    Paul Wilkinson, Founder GamingWorks
    ITIL®4 represents a significant mindset and behavior shift for IT Service management. One of its core concepts is the Value chain – by definition requiring end to end collaboration. But traditionally we have been operating in department and framework SILO’s - COBIT, BRM, Agile, DevOps and now ITIL4. Not only that, but Agile and DevOps stakeholders see ITIL as out of date within an increasingly agile world.

    Taking the step from where we are to where we need to be with ITIL is not a one off ‘Implementation’. It is a journey of iterative improvement. Yet at the Same time the world around us is continually changing requiring us to be agile and able to change at pace. The business is throwing ever more demands and opportunities our way. Products and features need to be deployed – Now! Critical systems need to remain stable, reliable and available. But what about change and improvement work!...

    Welcome to the world of digital transformation and digital disruption. Many organizations are now adopting ITIL4 as part of their ITSM journey, but are struggling to translate theory into practice and create the necessary buy-in and commitment from end-to-end stakeholders.

    MarsLander is a business simulation that can be used to bring the end-to-end stakeholders to experience and explore solutions to these challenges.

    Antonio Nucci, Ph.D
    With the consumerization of enterprise IT, employees are expecting the same level of service excellence from IT service management (ITSM) solutions. Users expect enterprise services to be delivered instantly, in the device and channel of their preference, with a high degree of personalization and without having to talk to someone. Leading enterprises are now transforming toward ITSM+ by embracing cognitive AI, Robotic Process Automation and Conversational Experience, which promise to boost productivity while using fewer resources, achieving greater cost savings and delivering an engaging customer experience for enhanced satisfaction.

    In this talk, we will start by drawing the Service Desk Journey, from Help Desk to Today's Segregated Service Desk, highlighting business and operational challenges affecting Employees, Customers and Service Desk Service Agents. We will then introduce the new paradigm shift of ITSM+, and present in great detail a novel five-layer reference architecture. We will walk the audience through each of the comprising layers and conclude with how to get started in this disruptive digital transformation.

    Vivek Mehta
    Senior IT leaders like you are increasingly challenged to develop digital strategies for your organization. This can be one of the most significant challenges you face, as there are no comprehensive frameworks to compare against your peers or to assess your ability to drive positive change.

    An organization’s digital maturity must be assessed across all key dimensions:

    •Strategy: Is the organization aligned around a vision?
    •Culture: Is the organization fostering the mindsets and behaviors critical to capturing digital opportunities?
    •Customer Journeys: Is the organization able to provide the desired customer experience over end-to-end journeys?
    •Capabilities: Does the organization have the systems, tools, digital skills, and technology to achieve its digital goals?

    This presentation will provide a blueprint that helps organizations take stock of their digital maturity and compare it with their peers in the industry. By leveraging the capabilities-based framework described in the blueprint, organizations can identify initiatives to achieve the desired digital maturity.
  • Breathe Life into your Legacy Service Desk Recorded: Feb 11 2020 59 mins
    Peter Beasley, President Netwatch Solutions
    Many enterprises still enjoy success with legacy service desk solutions such as Footprints, Track-IT, and Remedy. Many DevOps and software driven enterprises use Jira effectively to manage their service desks. But these solutions, often perpetually licensed, may be customized to meet many internal business needs – but do not have the latest configuration management capabilities like predictive analytics, dependency mapping, gamification, auto-discovery and robust change management workflows. Many lack a CMDB (configuration management database).
    So … wouldn’t it be great to have a CMDB without the hassle of changing your entire service desk functions?
    Plus, most CMDB’s today require migrating from a fully amortized, perpetually licensed solution to a recurring, SAAS solution.
    This session:
    •Lists reasons to keep your legacy service desk
    •Identifies key intersection points on how a traditional service desk can be complemented with a modern CMDB
    •Points-out what deficiencies may hurt the most
    •Emphasizes the plusses often out-weigh the negatives.
    Keeping your legacy service desk may make sense for many enterprises when you find options to extend their capabilities. Learn how.
