Be Inspired

For decades now, ITIL has been the industry standard as a best practices framework for delivering IT services.

Over the years it has evolved several times, each time guiding organisations to adapt to the situation at hand. The most recent launch of ITIL4 earlier this year seeks to address the specific challenges of Agile Service Management.

CTG understands that the success of DevOps and Agile, and the increasing pace of Digital Transformation activities not only affect your Development and Quality Assurance teams but also push the Operations departments in your organisation to join in.

In this morning seminar, we invite you to explore the possibilities ITIL4 offers.

We are happy to provide you with the necessary insights to help you discover where you can and want to go with this, and what it can bring for your own organisation.

The understanding you will gain from this will act as your compass in the storms ahead.

As the next event in in our “moveIT”- series - which focusses on all aspects of your Digital Transformation journey - we’re presenting this as a morning seminar. Sessions will come in 1 general track, allowing you to gain information in an effective and concise manner.

Not only will some of our own specialists take the stage, they will be joined by an international expert. Mr. Paul Wilkinson himself will look at the practical side of things, and share his C-Level insights with you!

At the end of what is going to be a very captivating morning, we'll provide you with ample time to meet your peers, or chat with our specialists.

Abstract

For decades, ITIL has been the basis for most IT Service Management organisations. In fact, it's been around for so long, most people have already forgotten how it all started.

With the focus in a lot of companies shifting to other things over recent years, and the DevOps world bringing a different mindset, it may even seem to some of us dinosaurs that we're all trying to reinvent the wheel. Or possibly, that we've forgotten why we need that wheel at all.

So it's time to take a small trip down memory lane to look at how ITIL has evolved and how we got where we are today.

And more importantly: Let's figure out why history shouldn't - and won't - repeat itself!

Abstract

In February 2019 Axelos decided to release ITIL4. It was time to ramp up ITIL in such a way that it would provide the guidance needed for anyone in the service management business to grasp "Value".

In this session, we will investigate if there is indeed value provided. How does ITIL connect with the Agile mindset of today? Can it really be integrated as part of your DevOps activities? Is the flexibility built-in or is it just "small talk"?

We will guide you through the new service architecture ITIL4 proposes, to ensure you can understand it's full potential.

And finally, as the ITIL4 version continues to grow & expand, we will provide a glimpse on their roadmap.

Abstract

The DevOps methodology is changing our ways of working, our methods of collaboration and the ideas behind proper software development. Ideally, it brings together stakeholders with different perspectives and objectives, such as business representatives, developers, analysts, testers and support engineers.

However, the IT bible for most Ops Engineers is ITSM flavoured and seasoned with sprinkles of ITIL. But how do you merge such a process mindset with an agile-ish concept of valuing people over processes? Or the lean principle to reduce “waste” such as elaborate processes and strict configuration management?

This presentation allows you to experience a dive into the wondrous DevOps world, from a new point of view. A view for people that have ample DevOps knowledge (the n00bs) or for people that have little to no idea what OPS is all about.

What are the tricks to introduce DevOps in a smooth fashion? How can you make your DevOps organisation function in a more efficient and effective way? Is there some low-hanging fruit to be found? Join this session and find out!

Abstract

A Game? But how will a game help us pass the certificate!

That is precisely one of the challenges we face in our Industry. Although a certificate provides value, real value comes from translating theory into practice.
But why a game?
Do you recognize this?
  • We sent people on certification training but things haven’t really improved?
  • We sent ITSM people onto the training but the Agile, DevOps and senior leadership don’t see the value of ITIL! How do we get them on-board?
  • We have the certificate but what now?
Answering these questions takes time, effort, frustration and sometimes pain…..or does it!
In this session we will explore how, in one day, by using a business simulation game organizations have answered these questions AND captured agreed end-to-end improvements to apply immediately.
A Game!?- Nice to have or NEED to have? Theory to practice, knowledge to results, buy-in and commitment….or do you just want the certificate!
