Why Align IT and the Business? – Randy Steinberg, Migration Technology, Inc.

Location:  United Health Group, Irvine, CA
Registration Link:
Why Align IT and the Business When You Can Fuse Them Together? 

The traditional IT operating model of delivering IT to the business in the form of bundled capabilities and assets is now wearing thin in an age of cloud computing, on-demand services, virtualization, outsourcing and rapidly changing business delivery strategies. The role of IT is rapidly changing from technology tinkerer to services thinker. Traditional alignment approaches are no longer enough. IT must blend with the business. This session describes a 5 step practical approach for quickly repositioning IT towards achieving this blend to create a hard delivery focus around vital business functions, services and value. Organizations that have already undertaken this approach have found game-changing results positively received by business executives and customers of their IT services.  


FUSION 13 – itSMF USA Conference - October 20-23, 2013 – Nashville, TN

itSMF USA and HDI, two leaders in the world of service management, are joining forces to elevate the standards in service management education. FUSION 13 brings together the best of the best—the best speakers, the best vendors, the best networking and social activities—all in a beautiful venue. Our goal? To provide you with an educational experience facilitated by only the most respected minds in service management so you can return to office with a solid action plan and valuable business contacts. Don't miss the premier Service Management conference of the year in Nashville, TN - from October 20-23, 2013!

Evaluating your IT services in business terms influences everything from how you prioritize resources to how you justify projects and staffing levels. Service management strategies are helping companies find efficiencies that save both time and money—even in seemingly streamlined organizations. At this conference, you'll sort through best practices and select innovative solutions and tools that will help your organization establish a competitive advantage.

Change Management:  The Secrets to Success – Roc Paez, HPLocation:  Union Bank Business Office, Monterey Park, CA

Registration Link:

Change management is the most controversial process in all of ITIL, creating more challenges and heartache than any other process. Why? Because it is the most misunderstood and incorrectly implemented of all the processes. The session will properly position the change management process, highlight critical success factors and key performance indicators, and offer real-world suggestions for making change management work for your organization. Come learn from the experiences of customers who struggled with change management initially but were able to turn things around and make change management a key capability of their IT organizations. 


SoTeC Conference - November 1-2, 2013

IT Professionals are presented with multiple conferences throughout the year that provide opportunities to develop industry knowledge, training, skills and leadership. What sets SoTeC apart from most other conferences is that it is organized by the same technology professionals who will benefit from attending the conference. Because the conference is organized by non-profit professional associations whose members volunteer their time, and because the speakers are also volunteers, SoTeC can provide these great benefits at a surprisingly affordable price.

Benefits of attending SoTeC include:12 PDU/CDUs, 15 CPEs for attending both conference days
