Unified Demand Management: The First Step to Effective IT Execution
66% of IT practitioners surveyed in new EMA research admit that IT's failure to prioritize has affected business partners. Increasingly, IT professionals understand that this is a failure of demand management. IT organizations do not understand the full picture of the work being done across project versus service support work. Agile, Lean, and DevOps practices are further blurring the traditional boundaries between projects and operations and are driving greater needs for an integrated demand, resource, and execution view.
In this Webinar, EMA Research Director Charlie Betz will discuss his groundbreaking new survey research on Unified IT Demand Management, which confirms the extent and severity of this problem for the modern IT practitioner. Attendees will learn what respondents said about how failures of prioritization affect IT’s support for the business, how they define demand management, what they are looking for in a modern demand management tool, the growing prevalence of DevOps and Kanban practices, the diminishing reach of the traditional Project Management Office, and much more.

Turbocharging Your CMDB
Bad data can kill a Configuration Management Database (CMDB). The mistrust that results from inaccurate information is very hard to overcome. Yet CMDBs are complex and bring together many diverse sources. This Webinar will address how such a mix of data be scrubbed and managed for quality over time.
EMA Research Director Charles Betz will provide an overview of core principles of data quality and their application to IT Service Management and the CMDB. He will be joined by Blazent Sr. Director of Systems Engineering, Adam Clark, who will present the Blazent solution for IT management data quality and how it is being used today by some of the largest IT service organizations in the world.
