4 OVERVIEW Federated approach to IT service and support Campus IT projects/initiatives: IT Best Practices (ITBP) Project Request Tracker 4 (RT4) Implementation Project Service Desk Initiatives group Endeavour to bring campus IT units together to share in discussions and planning

5 IT BEST PRACTICES (ITBP) PROJECT Campus wide IT project

6 ITBP GOALS The ITBP project endeavors to Examine three key IT processes* Define new best practices using ITIL as a resource Goal: improve value of the related IT services Share recommendations with management, campus IT committees and dependent projects Increased capability and productivity of IT staff Improved systems/applications availability Improved campus IT collaboration/communication Clearer roles and responsibilities/terminology *Change Mgmt, Service Ops, Knowledge Mgmt

7 WHAT IS ITIL? (INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY INFRASTRUCTURE LIBRARY) ITIL can be a resource for effective IT Service Non-prescriptive (can use parts)–”ITIL-lite” Framework of “suggestions” for managing IT services Provides approaches/models/etc. E.g. Continual Service Improvement (CSI) Validated across many other organizations Customer focused Focus on providing the value to customers

8 CUSTOMER SERVICE CONNECTION Service Operations Messaging to users from RT4 Improve efficiency, turnaround time, transparency Ensuring user requests are owned; reminders Prioritization Knowlege Management Knowledge Base Share info/solutions between IT units improves quality of service Improve efficiency when solving user requests Allow users to search public knowledge base Examine and make recommendations around ways information is stored and accessed Change Management Ensure systems are available AMAP Ensure good communications with customers/users/other IT staff when changes occur

9 PROGRESS Initial processes have been chosen Change Management (CM) Service Operations (SO) (generally at first) Knowledge Management with focus on Knowledge Base (KB) Planning/timelines are complete Discussions on the three processes in progress Initial recomendations for KB complete Initial recommendations for SO complete pending team approval CM is developing recommendations And using current CM initiative as case study

10 OTHER CONNECTIONS Part of an emerging service quality program of projects: ITBP RT4 Implementation ( dependent on ITBP) SLA Asset Management Service Catalogue (TBA) Others (TBA) Recommendations from ITBP will Be passed to RT4 project (KB, SO, some CM (e.g. Service Updates)) Influence emerging IT Service Quality Program

19 MEMBERSHIP This group has representation from all faculties and most IT units on campus Grew out of an already existing campus wide group of IT user support professionals

20 Service Desk Initiatives Group IT Service Desk collaboration To allow members to focus on improvements and new initiatives Service improvement Shared documentation and training Advertising/marketing Communication (e.g. new web site) Tools and solutions

21 HOW DO WE DO THIS? Regular meetings ( one per term) Presentations from specialized service areas Tracking emerging initiatives Co-op training All faculties and departments are invited 2 days in length Covering everything that a new co-op would need to know Includes customer service training Social events that everyone is invited too

22 IMPACT Positive impact on IT services and support across campus. Collaboration Improved interaction between faculties and IST, as well as after hours service desks (library and residence) Customer experience Positive feedback from clients regarding referrals done by the service desks on their behalf Service quality Services across the campus have improved through good interaction between units

23 FEEDBACK Good buy in from all facilities Co-op training is very well received “What I saw was a well put together series of appropriate material for our two co-op students (and me!). Please pass on my compliments to all involved in setting this up and count me in for upcoming terms. C Holmes CECA”
