Session 802: A Year in the Life: A Case Study on ITSM Maturity

Friday, November 03 at 10:15 AM

This session is a one-year case study on organizational maturation in ITIL, focusing on how to build an effective ITSM service delivery team from existing resources. You’ll review the model developed and deployed with great success at CPS Energy when they embarked on an IT operations reorganization as part of their roadmap to ITSM maturity. Hear about CPS Energy’s journey and see how it has allowed their team to become more engaged, energized, and empowered to improve processes, support, and service.

San Antonio – Recognize your top IT support person today!

We held our first HDI San Antonio Awards Luncheon back in 2010 with the idea of serving our local IT Support/Service Management community by providing a venue for recognition and rewards.  We have some great people out there and they deserve to be honored.  Many of our local organizations engage leadership, peers and end users to participate in selecting their top support personnel.  We honor every Service Desk Analyst, Desktop Support Technician and Support Manager nominee at the Awards Luncheon.  We announce local winners that represent San Antonio and compete across North America.  Nominations are due by October 31.  Our Awards Luncheon will be at Maggiano's on December 7th.

This year we are opening up this event to non-member organizations.
