Optimize Your Attendance
You'll be able to add these Gartner exclusives to your agenda:
Sign-up to be among the first to receive our 2016 Agenda
* Please note: Places are limited and registration is required - first come first served basis
Listen to inspirational guest keynote speakers; hear from Gartner-invited end-user case study speakers – real practitioners with real-world knowledge; and learn from Gartner analysts – the foremost experts in their areas of focus.
Drive the right culture and inspire their organization – More collaboration than confrontation will be the key to success.
Not just focus on reduced risk – This will not be sufficient without focus on agility. Traditional ITIL practices will evolve and co-exist with DevOps as bimodal IT becomes standard good practice.
Use automation technology to remove manual routine process, but ensure it is complimentary to agile, learning & intelligent capabilities will be needed to scale, change and lower cost.
Use a hybrid sourcing strategy to deliver datacenter services that are defined by Enterprise needs.
Each session has provided an action plan guidance on what to do right away specific to its focus area. We recommending working with your I&O teams to process all this guidance, to prioritize initiatives that will have the biggest impact in the shortest time and integrate this guidance into your own roadmap for 2016. Make sure you are tracking progress and measuring outcomes. Gartner is here to help keep you on track with these initiatives and help you achieve success.
"It's not only the quality of the contents of the presentations, it's the way they are presented, the energy, the involvements that analysts are able to trigger that makes you willing to participate again and again."
