More and more software publishers have taken the decision in the last few years to favor the cloud mode. This is causing major upheavals in the organizations that use this software from the point of view of cost control, security and confidentiality of their data. Also from an operating point of IT services new skills are required. IT financial management is becoming a necessity and in some cases, innovation cells that are completely separate from the normal delivery methods of IT projects are to be set up. The purpose of my presentation is for the first time to popularize the concept of cloud governance and to propose concrete measures to integrate cloud services in a context where services are managed internally without duplicating the operating functions.
Since June 2019, a developer team has been put in place at Croesus to automate deployments, done manually for 30 years. As a Product Owner, I was able to help build the first developer team to solve operational problems at Croesus. We have learned a lot about how to maintain good velocity despite the unexpected caused by operations. We have also integrated a model very close to the SRE allowing us to achieve our mission: Set up the CICD at Croesus, establish standards, and deliver value to the customer quickly and reliably.

Gartner presents Process Mining as the ability to discover, monitor and improve real business processes, not just what the organization thinks or wants. Process Mining highlights the entire process and is based on real and dynamic event logs to identify the best possible improvement opportunities and thus ensure agile governance. The measurement, compliance and overall performance of the process are thus highlighted dynamically and in real time.
This session will present the advantages of Process Mining and how the company can benefit from it to ensure the governance of its processes
This presentation provides an overview of the challenges and opportunities when managing projects in a creative content environment. It will describe the main differences that a project manager might encounter when managing this type of project compared to projects in more traditional sectors. Using the Project Management Institute’s PMBOK® (Project Management Body of Knowledge) framework, Sylvain will discuss the creative content environment, tools, techniques, and most importantly, the soft skills needed to be successful. Managing creative content projects is exciting because it takes place at a fast pace and in a stimulating environment. For some project managers used to other sectors, this means being open-minded in order to develop management tools adapted to this unique reality and having a strong ability to adapt to a constantly changing environment! There are many lessons learned that could benefit any leader involved in innovation.
• Definitions Creative content and defined content
• Creative Content Model (CC) and Defined Content (DC)
– Human capital vs creative capital
– Model of organizational maturity vs creative agility
– Traditional vs Agile methodology

Combining a user portal, an IT service catalog, approval rules and managing the execution of delivery and support tasks to process IT orders for arrivals, trips and departures of employees of an organization can quickly become a very complex puzzle to implement.
However, there are low-cost open source solutions on the market that allow you to orchestrate all of your activities in one ITSM information system.
The SEI team will demonstrate that it can be done quickly and at low cost.
After the workshop, you will have the tools and knowledge to create your user portal and offer a service to process IT orders related to employee arrivals, travel and departure.
We all have a same question How DevOps and ITSM enable the bank to become a competitive advantage and Embedding ITSM and DevOps in a banking environment is possible with different constraints like Security, regularity, etc.? The National Bank of Canada decided to start the integration between these two practices DevOps and ITSM /ITIL in the last one year. In this presentation we introduce different process level like Change Management, Incident and Self-service user based on DevOps technologies like API and integration between different tools (Jira, Jenkins, etc.). In this context some questions should be explored:
Are Human being able to change the way to work?
How DevOps can create the benefit and increase velocity for the Change process, Incident, CMDB, ITSM tool?
Therefore, even thought that the timeline execution is short and ongoing, the benefits are compliant with the organization vision that encourage the collaboration between people (process people and DevOps engineering), avoid the waste of time execution and manual tasks. People will learn how the ITIL V4 and DevOps can be complementary based on experience of the National Bank of Canada. Hence, we illustrate different use cases that explain how we were able to increase user velocity for different ITIL process and DevOps team. For that purpose, we will study 3 uses cases: Operational team perspective, Process perspective, Tool perspective.
You will have the opportunity to review all of the Lean, Agile and Management System Concepts, while going through their interdependencies and to see that they are closely linked and to see how we move from theory to practice through well-crafted governance.
This workshop aims to help you define your IR intervention priorities and choose the processes to be dealt with quickly in relation to your weakest (deficient) levels of maturity and thus meet ministerial requirements as well as revealed findings. through your maturity survey. In this process of improving your IR, you will be called upon to review your catalog (portfolio) of services as well as your service levels (SLA) offered to your user customers.
In overview, this workshop will allow you to review the ITIL foundations, to understand their objectives, their scope and their added values in this process. One of our concerns in this presentation is to equip you to be able to optimize your various processes by USEFUL key actions (ITIL), by various efficient processes and by the adhesion of stakeholders to the changes necessary for a significant improvement in your IR maturity levels.
This conference will allow participants to:
– Understand asset management and its difference with configuration management
– Understand the savings that companies can derive from better management of software assets (licenses).
– Understand the structures necessary to put in place to better manage software assets (licenses)
When program leaders and managers face the high-speed technology shift, Agility is at the forefront of the options to consider. They quickly discover that the Agile approach must touch all aspects of their organization, not just IT solutions services. The Agile Discipline method (DA-PMI ©) is an Agile Hybrid method (DA) that allows cohesive integration of lifecycle learning, added value and risk management, taking into account strategic / operational objectives of the company. This scalable method uses process management, the principles of continuous improvement. It offers a choice of options, selected according to the context of the IT phases and / or projects. It offers us a model that can evolve in other areas of the business.
In a crisis management situation (eg pandemic), organizations, to remain sustainable, will have to show resilience and innovation. In this presentation, speakers will discuss how CIOs will need to think about the new IT ecosystem in order to adapt and modernize both operationally and humanly to ensure the sustainability of their organizations. In particular, they will address governance mechanisms to frame the convergence of resilience and innovation. They will involve you in the discussion to co-create a common reflection on these key elements for the sustainable success of organizations and IT.
