Digital empathy




Marco Gianotten

Once upon a time there was a department that was set up to work with computers: the data processing department. This was later renamed the information technology (IT) department. Decades after that IT departments have grown larger and more important to the business continuity than ever before. But with nicknames like "the fortress,"or "the bunker," it is clear that IT still often occupies an isolated position inside the organization. That is the last thing you want if digitization is going to make or break your business. So how can IT reinvent itself as a discipline? The answer does not lie in a new process model, or a different methodology; the solution starts with empathy. Inquisitiveness, creativity, and empathy are largely what determine the success of IT. This book is for people who are open to change, no matter if you are an IT professional, or not. Digital Empathy provides inspiration and something to hold on to from the "why" to the approach of using eXperience Level Agreements. Read on, and you'll see what I mean. Or not, in which case there's always the bumper sticker "I'm not good at empathy; will you settle for sarcasm?"

Elaine B. Hyder

The eSourcing Capability Model for Service Providers (eSCM-SP) is the best practices model that supports sourcing organizations successfully manage and reduce their risks and improve their capabilities across the entire sourcing life-cycle. It addresses the critical issues related to IT-enabled sourcing (eSourcing) for both outsourced and in-sourced (shared services) agreements. Each of the Model's 84 Practice is distributed along three easy to follow dimensions: Sourcing Life-cycle, Capability Area, and Capability Level, and have been applied in IT, BPO, and KPO settings. The eSCM-SP has been designed to complement existing quality models so that service providers can capitalize on their previous improvement efforts. ITIL V3 suggests that ITIL be supplemented with eSCM when service management is performed in the context of a sourcing arrangement. A series of documents comparing the eSCM-SP with other models and standards has been developed. Developed by The IT Services Qualification Center (ITSqc) and endorsed by a number of organizations including IAOP (International Association of Outsourcing Professionals), this title represents a major step forward for professionals looking to implement Best Practice within the Industry.

In all enterprises around the world, the issues, opportunities and challenges of aligning IT more closely with the organization and effectively governing an organization’s IT investments, resources, major initiatives and superior uninterrupted service is becoming a major concern of the Board and executive management.

Much less has been written about a comprehensive and integrated approach for IT/Business Alignment, Planning, Execution and Governance.

Each of the chapters also covers one or more of the following action oriented topics: - the why and what of IT: strategic planning, portfolio investment management, decision authority, etc.; - the how of IT: Program/Project Management, IT Service Management (including ITIL); Strategic Sourcing and outsourcing; performance, risk and contingency management (including COBIT, the Balanced Scorecard etc.) and leadership, team management and professional competences.

Implementing information security based on iso 27001/iso 270




Alan Calder

Information is the currency of the information age and in many cases is the most valuable asset possessed by an organisation. Information security management is the discipline that focuses on protecting and securing these assets against the threats of natural disasters, fraud and other criminal activity, user error and system failure. Effective information security can be defined as the 'preservation of confidentiality, integrity and availability of information.' This book describes the approach taken by many organisations to realise these objectives. It discusses how information security cannot be achieved through technological means alone, but should include factors such as the organisation's approach to risk and pragmatic day-to-day business operations. This Management Guide provides an overview of the implementation of an Information Security Management System that conforms to the requirements of ISO/IEC 27001:2005 and which uses controls derived from ISO/IEC 17799:2005. It covers the following: * Certification * Risk * Documentation and Project Management issues * Process approach and the PDCA cycle * Preparation for an Audit

IT Service management from hell




Brian Johnson

This book was written by authors under the influence of Irony. Irony, or 'I' as it known, was first popularised in the sixteen century when Raleigh imported it to the Elizabethan court. The damage 'I' could cause led to its use being prohibited, and users went underground, or were weaned of its influence by using Sarcasm as a substitute (Sarcasm has greater initial effect, but wears off more quickly). It is widely believed that Noel Coward wrote under the influence of 'I' and in the sixties and seventies large numbers of people once more became addicted, when its use was immortalised by bands such as the Beatles ('I' am the walrus), The Stones ('I' can't get no (Satisfaction), and later by the Sex Pistols (Irony in the UK). Icons such as John Lennon were detained by customs in the USA (where use of irony has never been popular) after quantities of irony were found in his luggage. In the most celebrated bust of the sixties, Mick Jagger and Keith Richards were hauled in front of the break for being in possession of microscopic quantities of 'I' at Richards Redlands country house. The event gained particular notoriety because of the presence of Marianne Faithfull, who allegedly was discovered naked except for a fur rug. And on the point of placing irony in an unusual context. The publisher do not support the Campaign to legalise irony. 'I' can have serious long term effects. The publishers wish to state that they do not use irony or approve of its use, and recommended that readers of this publication undergo irony counselling should they be affected by its content.
