ServiceDesk Plus now integrates with Zoho Reports, a cloud-based, highly secure BI platform to address all your reporting pain points. With the new platform, IT service desk managers can create powerful reports within minutes using a flexible drag-and-drop interface without having to write database queries. Here is a webinar which will help you gain better insights about the integration.
We may not have flying cars yet but the self-driving car is actually beginning its infancy. With all the technology swirling around us and in our pockets and purses surely the paradigm of the Service Desk has changed as well. Yes and No. Today’s users are bright and more tech-savvy in terms of using technology than ever before. As long as it works. But when something doesn't quite work, they want to solve it themselves using the easiest means at their disposal, Google, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, etc. This might work well from their perspective but not from ours.
Join George Spalding, Executive Vice President, Pink Elephant, as he focuses on the evolution of the Service Desk and what’s in store for the next 5 years.
Charles Araujo, CEO, The IT Transformation Institute
The idea behind the Service Catalogue has been intoxicating for IT organizations. Give people a simple list of services to choose from and then deliver them, lowering costs and increasing efficiency in the process.
But there is a fundamental flaw in this model. We have entered the “experience age” where customers want much more than a simple order form. They now measure their satisfaction based not solely on simplicity, but on the totality of their experience. In this session, we will explore how customer attitudes and expectations are shifting, the “Four Moments of Truth” in a customer experience and the three ways that you must change your approach to a Service Catalogue to adapt to this future.
What is the first step in building a successful Service Catalog? Understanding and gaining agreement on How To Define Your Services!
This session describes the anatomy of a service and how to cut through the confusion and internal IT politics by starting from a top down business focus. While developing a Service Catalog can seem like a monumental task. Troy will describe a step-by-step approach to getting started. So register for the webinar soon!

This Webinar will look at key trends impacting the demands on IT from both inside and outside IT and how these are already requiring new approaches to Project Management, Portfolio Management, and ITSM-driven governance. More specifically, this Webinar will address:
· How IT is expected to perform in 2013 and the foreseeable future, and how this represents a rupture with the past.
· How IT project management must change in response.
· How PPM solutions will eventually evolve into uniquely optimized workflows coupled with automation and analytics
· The present/future role of social networking and stakeholder management
With the advent of mobile, cloud and agile, and the growing interdependencies between IT service performance and business outcomes, the very core of IT Service Management is in a state of substantial transformation. Never before has the need been greater for the Service Desk to work more effectively and in an integrated manner with Operations, IT business executives, non-IT consumers and even in some cases application development. This trend heralds a shift from “back-office” to “front-office” governance with greater consumer awareness and more dynamic processes. This Webinar draws on EMA research and consulting to provide guidance on how to better understand, address, and optimize these transitions by focusing on:
• How and why is the role of IT changing in response to its consumer population?
• How are IT Service Management strategies and processes changing in response?
• What are the organizational implications of these changes?
• What are some of the key management technologies optimized to help see IT professionals and organizations through?
• How do you start to plan a program for transformation that begins to work in months versus years?
