A Pink Elephant Seminar in association with SMART-SIP
Date: Tuesday 13th April 2010
Location: The Studio, 7 Cannon Street, Birmingham, B2 5EP
Time: 9.30-16.00 hours
A common scenario: "Developers build new applications and services; and the first thing Service Management hear about it is the day before it goes live!"
That doesn't happen anymore........does it?
So when should Service Management get involved in new projects and services?
How should you be involved? What questions should you ask? How can you integrate ITSM with PPM (Project & Portfolio Management)? How can you reduce Project costs?
In this one-day informative seminar, packed full of practical 'How to' advice, we'll show you how to ensure collaboration and engagement happens at the beginning of the Development Lifecycle.
Ensuring ALL requirements are taken into account will enable a smooth, cost effective, fault free Service Introduction process. We'll also show you how to improve the management and control of projects that are introducing new Services and components into the live environment.
We have assembled a line up of speakers who have a broad range of experience in ITIL, Service Transition and specifically Service Introduction.  The agenda is confirmed as:
