itSMF is proud to announce the resurrection of the Northern Alberta Branch (NAB), based out of Edmonton Alberta. This is the second official gathering in Northern Alberta in seven years, coming off of the inaugural event last month in October. This will be the final event of 2018, with us taking a Christmas break and then reconvening in official itSMF capacity in January. These first two events in 2017 will be sponsored by the Southern Alberta Branch. Because of that these first two events will have a set fee, and in January 2018 the Northern Alberta Branch will be fully independent and options for membership will be available.
itSMF Canada is a forum for Information Technology professionals to explore methods of continually improving the support and delivery of IT Services. The forum allows members to exchange views, share experiences and participate in the continuous development of best practices and standards.
Event information is as follows:
As ITSM practitioners, we live and breathe the Value of ITSM every day. But how do we help our Executives to see it? How can we tell the Value story?
This presentation is an example of Leveraging ITSM metrics and reporting, using an actual end-of-year report to a CIO, with some colour-commentary to suggest ways to weave common IT themes into the story, including Cost Reduction and User Experience.
