New Jersey IG: How to Implement Measurements to Drive Value

Improve the "Business of IT" by using a measurement framework and metrics that matter most.

Metrics are important to management. What's not measured cannot be managed.

But what should be measured, why and how?

Learning Objectives:
Metrics validate your IT strategy and vision; provide direction with targets and metrics; justify changes with a means to gauge value-realized; signal when to intervene with corrective actions.

Hear case studies and examples that help you improve alignment, meet compliance and drive service excellence.

  • Simplifying Service Response with Standard+Case May 4 2017 6:00 pm UTC 60 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.

  • DevOps/Agile COI: Putting the "Ops" into "DevOps" Recorded: Apr 7 2016 62 mins
    Robert Stroud, John Clipp
    Please join the DevOps / Agile CoI for a BrightTalk Session, “Putting the “Ops” into “DevOps”, scheduled for 2PM EDT on Thursday, April 7, 2016.

    DevOps is the blending of tasks performed by a company's application development and systems operations teams in order to deliver on the IT promise of agility and elasticity to meet business demands. Unfortunately, to date, this has been more about accelerating “Dev” and less about the “Ops”. Agility and velocity does not mean the abandonment of good practices, rather mandates the transition of the ops role from one of managing physical infrastructure, to managing their infrastructure as code. To do so effectively, operations will build infrastructure as code, similar to the Dev community and leverage automation tools to facilitate transition to production using modern automation tools.

    Robert Stroud of Forrester who focused on the SDDC and IaC will discuss the impact of DevOps on your existing Change and Configuration management process and how you can leverage IaC and DevOps for agility and elasticity.

  • Enterprise DevOps – Lessons Learned Recorded: Jan 27 2016 61 mins
    John Clipp - Jason Walker
    Please join the DevOps / Agile CoI for a BrightTalk Session, “Enterprise DevOps – Lessons Learned”, scheduled for 1PM EST on Wednesday, January 27, 2016.

    DevOps is a cornerstone to concepts used to drive the implementation, with continuous integration and delivery as methods to deliver the actual solution. In a large enterprise, there are many front-end and back-end systems/processes that need to "talk". This presentation focuses on highlighting and breaking down the silos that exist in order to redirect energy and attention on (the more important) outcomes that are generated from lighter methods to delivery IT systems. This includes establishing similar light weight methods for all groups in the organization to publish updates and changes in the environment with, again, a focus on the values, practices, and outcomes.

    Jason Walker, the Lead DevOps Engineer at Target Corporation, will discuss many of the lessons learned and best practices during the adoption of DevOps at Target.

  • itSMF USA DevOps/Agile CoI - Introduction to DevOps Recorded: Oct 7 2015 50 mins
    Nathen Harvey
    "DevOps" is a term that has become mainstream enough to be hated, misunderstood, misused, and abused. But what is "DevOps"? And, more importantly, why should I care?

    DevOps isn't a tool or a product. It's an approach to operations. By uniting development and operations teams to automate and standardize processes for infrastructure deployment, you get faster innovation, accelerated time to market, improved deployment quality, better operational efficiency, and more time to focus on your core business goals.

    This presentation will explore the principles and forms of DevOps. I know DevOps when I see it and, soon, you will, too.
