  • An AANPM solution should focus on the real-time performance of end users. Instead of making use of 100% synthetic tests into an application environment, real end-user traffic can be used to find slow application response times, changes in network latency, and poorly written application code.

    Attention can be focused on the true root cause of the performance problem, rather than engaging in guesswork network troubleshooting. An AANPM solution aids IT organizations in quickly identifying the component of the network or application that is inducing the delay, enabling engineers to resolve the problem.

    In this third of four webinars we will look at how an AANPM solution is implemented and how it benefits engineers and technicians.
  • Join Kroll’s Indonesia team as they share their experience investigating risk in one of Asia’s most attractive markets.

    Indonesia in 2015 remains one of Asia’s most significant sources of growth, and continues to draw investors from Asia, North America, and Europe. While there is good reason to be hopeful due to a strong new political administration, throughout the economy reputation, corruption, fraud and political risks remain. ​

    Kroll’s team will discuss their views on the changing risk environment around Indonesia’s investment opportunities, as well as share their experience researching integrity issues, infrastructure bottlenecks, and sensitive industries.
  • Tony Fortunato, Sr. Network Performance Analyst with the Tech Firm, will demonstrate the benefits of using an OptiView XG to root out the causes of issues in today's complex network environments.
  • You may not know much about it, but Hadoop is coming in a big way. The list of services you provide and support grows larger by the day and very soon Hadoop related technologies will likely play a critical role in many of those services. Much of the processing that happens in Hadoop is batch related but the built in tools for managing that batch is inferior and will cause delays when trying to deploy the related applications and services. Join us to learn:

    •What Hadoop is and what it is used for
    •The type of processing performed in Hadoop environments
    •How to deliver better Hadoop workload related services
  • A recent analyst study found that 88% of organizations are “doing Project and Portfolio Management (PPM).” This finding could lead many to believe all is well with this critical business process so essential to strategic success. This is hardly the case as studies also show PPM is still generally immature in enterprises today. The lack of maturity is largely due to the fact that most organizations are addressing only a subset of PPM capabilities. So though almost every organization can lay claim to doing PPM, few are actually doing PPM for all its worth. Many of these organizations will continue to miss out on the incredible possibility and promise of this essential business capability until they grasp and appreciate the full scope and potential of PPM.

    One of the greatest barriers to realizing the full potential of PPM is an enterprise-wide awareness of the span of PPM and the likely gap that must be overcome to achieve it. There is a plethora of great PPM insight contained in the numerous books, methodologies, and frameworks available today, but using this volume of information to get everyone on the same page is a daunting challenge. The key is to use a simple approach and model to quickly establish a common understanding of this critical business discipline and to easily foster the conversations and discussions to drive the endeavor to raise PPM proficiency.

    This brief webcast will present a PPM model that is easy to remember, easy to communicate, and proven to quickly illuminate the gap between existing immature PPM processes and the full scope and potential of comprehensive Project and Portfolio Management.

  • Portfolio planning activities have struggled to gain respect in most businesses. Lack of enterprise-wide orchestration arises from a lack of effective involvement and intimate business knowledge – not simply of operations and processes, but of business imperatives, obstacles and desired outcomes. And the information systems aspects continue to be planned in splendid isolation from the business, causing IT people to mistakenly celebrate victory when a new IT system goes live. However a project only really starts when the IT goes live, and so the planning needs to be fully integrated. This can only be accomplished first by building strong relationships with business peers that will result in measurable value creation. The next step is to implement a sophisticated PPM system that can handle the extreme complexity of orchestrating all the business and related technology portfolio of initiatives, capable of optimizing the plans (and the outcomes) as the business environment changes.

    To achieve this, a new PPM model needs to be created to look at portfolio management in a holistic way, enterprise-wide. Planners need a capability that will generate multiple scenarios and real-time decision support. This dimensionality and complexity is well beyond the capacity of the human brain. By implementing such a tool, IT would be positioned as a critical partner with the business – not just in implementing mainstream information systems, but also in helping the business with a much better way to plan and manage all of its key initiatives effectively

    This session focuses on how enterprise leaders and divisional leaders and IT leaders should be working in harmony to orchestrate great business outcomes, rather than looking after their parochial interests.

  • Higher Ed SIG | CSI for Beating a Dead Horse – What are your Metrics? Recorded: Dec 18 2014 60 mins
    IT measurements are meaningless if they don’t provide information to make accurate and timely decisions. Yet many IT organizations produce reams of operational reports that provide tons of information yet still leave everyone 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 IT can leverage results and a program of continual service improvement for effective decision making. 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.

  • Creating a BRM Maturity Assessment Recorded: Jul 14 2014 33 mins
    Is the BRM role strategic, tactical, operational, or some combination of the three? And how do you determine how well you are fulfilling that role?

    As part of the BRM team within his organization, Bob took on the task of developing a BRM specific Maturity Assessment, which would take into account BRM responsibilities as documented within his company, as described in industry white papers and articles, and as formally defined within ITIL.

    Bob will highlight the process they took to define and categorize the BRM responsibilities, establish maturity levels that reflected realistic measures for progress and milestones, and then evaluate the team’s level of maturity within each area.

    Bob offers this as a launching point for discussion within your organization on how to define and measure the role of Business Relationship Management, not to establish a definitive BRM Model that would apply in all situations.
  • Higher Ed SIG - Simplifying Request Fulfillment Using a Basic SRM Recorded: Jun 17 2014 50 mins
    Many organizations and tool providers use their Incident Management process to fulfill service requests. Depending on the size and complexity of your organization, a separate work stream and process for Request Fulfillment might be justified to handle high volume, pre-approved, standard, repeatable requests.

    This session will discuss the current state of Request Fulfillment at Miami University. In an environment where over 430 applications and systems are supported, a "one size fits most" model was adopted that allowed for standardization of request models so that service requests could be fulfilled correctly the first time.

    To borrow a passage from “The Definitive Guide to IT Service Metrics”, In order for any metric to provide benefit, we must understand our goals and expectations for the metric rooted in the success of the process, service or product we are measuring. Metrics are the source of valuable information for any organization and can provide an abundance of benefits, including:

    •Demonstrating organizational maturity
    •Driving and changing behavior of the organization and staff
    •Discovering opportunities for improvement
    •Justification for change and the cost of change
