A New IT Operating Model for Managing Digital – 22.04.2021 @ 5.00PM TO 7.00PM

Design and optimize your IT value streams

Most organizations are busy modernizing and/or transforming their IT operating model to manage the new digital reality (such as related to the new Hybrid multi-vendor ecosystem). New ways of working are introduced such as Agile development, DevOps and SRE as well as modernizing and rationalizing the IT management tooling landscape.

However, many organizations still lack a solid vision and design of their target operating model. What is typically missing is a blueprint or architecture of how to combine different practices and standards into a pragmatic and workable solution, covering the processes, tools, data, people, integrations, etc.

This presentation is about how is the IT operating model evolving. How does a holistic digital delivery model look like? What value streams do you need to manage your digital services / products? How should you blend various practices to create a modern digital delivery capability? including practices such as:

  • ITIL 4 / IT Service Management
  • DevOps
  • Agile development (e.g. Scrum) and scaled agile frameworks (e.g. SAFe)
  • Continuous Delivery
  • SRE
  • Enterprise Service Management (ESM)
  • SIAM
  • Project management methodologies e.g. PMBoK, Prince2
  • Security and risk management practices (e.g. NIST, ISO 27000)
  • IT4IT
  • Competency frameworks e.g. eCF, SFIA
