Christoph will talk about the "pressure cooker" that is IT Operations and how it relates to (Major) Incident and Problem Management. He will introduce the value of consistent, quality troubleshooting and an end-to-end IT support approach. He will also discuss the new IT paradigm of 'DevOps', its objectives, what it means to an ITIL-based operation and how it could change the ways in which functions like Incident and Problem Management are being operated today.
Key takeaways:
  • IT stability and the challenges of achieving it in IT Operations
  • The role of structured thinking and quality troubleshooting - the Kepner-Tregoe approach
  • An end-to-end view of Incident, Problem and Change Management
  • What is DevOps?
  • Challenges of the "ITIL-based operation" in moving to DevOps
  • How DevOps might change the way we operate: processes - skills - performance management
