How COBIT 5 Maximizes the Investments Within ITIL and Other Best Practices

DATE:  12/13/2017

TIME:  9:00 am PST / 12:00 pm EST / 5:00 pm GMT

PRESENTER:  Dylan Swart, Education Director – Syzygal

There is a misconception that states ITIL, for example, works for some organizations but not others. While there are elements of this statement are true this is rarely the case.

ITIL is a guidance framework that should be adapted and continually improved within an IT environment. It is often the case that is it not that the framework has not been embedded correctly.

COBIT 5 brings a governance layer to ITIL, placing measurement metrics and controls to ensure that process practitioners or IT staff are using the adapted framework as intended.

In the end, it does not matter how aligned or mature a process is. It will always be of little value, if it is not being used by its target audience.

DevOps: Modern Skills for IT Professionals

DATE:  02/06/2018

TIME:  9:00 am PST / 12:00 pm EST / 5:00 pm GMT

PRESENTER:  Jayne Groll, CEO - DevOps Institute

Digital transformation is real! To adapt, IT professionals need to transform their own skillset to become more multi-dimensional by gaining both depth and breadth of a wide variety of knowledge and competencies. Historically, while IT has been built on a foundation of specialty (or “I” shaped) silos, the DevOps principle of “shifting left” is opening up opportunities for developers, operational staff, security and others to grow their skills portfolio, advance their careers and become “T”-shaped. This session will explore emerging practices, technologies and related competencies that organizations and individuals will need in order to keep and gain competitive advantage across the value stream. From leadership and cultural techniques to technical knowledge to soft skills, the presentation will help attendees identify a learning path that will help them evolve from an I-shaped specialist to a highly demanded multi-competent T-shaped professional.
