The Value Proposition
  • IntegrationProvides a one-stop solution for IT
    management, integrating with important
    application and replacing 10-15 smaller ones.
    Just like ERP system did to manufacturing

  • H-Inventory
  • Peregrine and other closed-source tools

17
Network Management
  • po will not implement its own Network
    Management tools. Instead, po will rely on
    external applications including
  • Nagios
  • Big Brother
  • other open- and closed-source tools

18
Release Management
  • po includes a basic Release Management module
  • Definition of software releases
  • Mapping of RfC and Helpdesk tickets to eleases
  • Integration status per release item

19
Change Management
  • Requests for Change (RfCs) of various types
  • Dynamic fields per RfC
  • Priorization and portfolio management
  • Dynamic Workflow allowing to configure the flow
    of RfC tickets

20
Project Proposals
  • Self-Service interface for business users to
    propose projects
  • Multiple types of projects with specific fields
  • Dynamic approval WF

21
Software Development
  • Dynamic approval workflow for development
    requests
  • Integration with CVS and SubVersion
  • Mapping of CVS and SubVersion users to po users
  • Mapping of CVS/ SubVersion modules to modules
    from configuration management
  • Tracking of software development based on
    schedules from project management.

22
Implementation (HR) Change Management
23
Implementation Change Mgmt.
  • What is the problem?
  • (HR) Change Management is 1 risk when
    introducing IT services management.
  • Highly skilled IT professionals question the
    value of ITSM.
  • Highly skilled IT professionals reject the
    perceived control of their work.

24
Implementation Change Mgmt
Tool-Driven Implementation
  • Common knowledge
  • Common knowledge is that change such as an ITIL
    implementation should be driven by a
    people-approach and change management.
  • Tool-Driven Change Management
  • However, a specifically focused tool can greatly
    help with an ITIL implementation, because
  • The tool clearly prescribes operational
    procedures.
  • Change management is in great part performed in
    special training sessions.
  • The tools performance indicators allow to track
    advance.
  • Big ERP rollouts are example for tool-driven
    change. Senior management informally acknowledges
    that the implied changes is frequently the main
    reason for implementing an ERP.
  • Change management and leadership are still
    necessary for a successful implementation.
    However, the tool and its incrusted best
    practices becomes a 3rd big force.
  • Limitations po is mainly suitable for medium
    sized IT organizations (20-100 employees)
    starting with a low degree of IT management
    maturity(?)

25
Implementation Change Mgmt
Tool-Driven Implementation
  • Start with valuable information
  • Start where requests/information enters the
    system (Service Desk)
  • The idea is to provide useful and valid
    information in the system, so that users need to
    use the system to obtain their information.
  • Examples
  • Start with the Service Desk
  • Import valuable import from legacy systems
  • Start with regulatory requirements
  • Regulatory requirements are coercively imposed on
    companies. Users tend to accept these regulations
    more easily then management policies.
  • Examples
  • Accounting requirements may enforce inventory
    control
  • License management after users have been trapped
    illegally installing software.
  • Sarbanes-Oxley may require strict release
    management control
  • Contract external auditors to check compliance
  • Start where the money comes from
  • Budget, purchasing and other non-continuous
    processes with approval stages force users to
    comply with process requirements
  • Example
  • Requesting additional budget for a project
