There is a wealth of information out there on ITIL and process improvement, but very little on leading cultural change and moving IT organizational behavior from an executive perspective. We hope to change that.

Overview: Business is moving faster and faster every day - and demanding that IT move with it. As a result IT organizations are moving toward new development methodologies, approaches and tools such as SOA and Agile to reduce time to delivery of critical business apps. But as these same organizations adopt IT Service Management principles, an apparent conflict arises pitting SOA and Agile against Change and Release Management.


In this brief thirty minute webinar you will learn key insights and techniques to help you bridge the apparent gap between rapid development approaches and ITSM, and create true organizational agility, including:

  •         Why SOA, Agile and Change/Release Management are after the same goal
  •      How SOA and Agile relate to Service Design and why it matters to your ITSM efforts
  •      How to design a change and release process that can support SOA and Agile

This webinar will occur on Wednesday, September 15, 2010 at 9:15am EST / 12:15pm PST. Don't miss this opportunity to gain valuable insight on how to bridge the gap between rapid development and ITSM. Register for this free webinar today at CastlePointe's website!
