The IT Leaders’ Virtual Workshop

An exclusive online discussion for IT leaders across Australia & New Zealand

Hosted by ServiceNow, the IT Leaders’ Virtual Workshop was set up to offer an intimate online forum for IT leaders from selected firms across Australia & New Zealand. 

Our discussions are very much inclusive and involve all the wealth of experience from the senior peers.

Managing Change with Instant Agility

The need to drive digital transformation across organisations is accelerating. Companies are moving from legacy systems to a handful of strategic platforms that can be relied on to drive the end-to-end supply chain of business service delivery. Using spreadsheets to make investment decisions is giving way to automated demand management processes that augment decision-making by aligning corporate objectives and making evaluation processes more consistent. By doing so, organisations can quickly re-evaluate investment decisions as economic or regulatory conditions change. 

Multi-speed IT Service Delivery, whilst still supporting project management, is driving velocity with newer frameworks like Agile, Safe and DevOps on a single platform to manage the diverse methodologies and resourcing requirements from one place. They are maintaining this velocity by automating traditional service management checks and balances and DevOps’ rapid deployments whilst reducing the risks to their business services.

  • What are the best ways of driving digital transformation through digital workflows and automation?
  • Which strategic online tools are best for helping businesses accelerate change and adapt to any circumstance?
  • How can companies improve visibility across all of their business processes?
