The end of 2017 is in sight, and as we gear up for the year ahead, we're looking back at some of the year's most watched, most essential webinars.
Throughout 2017, Cherwell has kept our focus on the future, striving to identify trends ahead. In a constantly evolving landscape of technology and business needs, IT service management (ITSM) leaders need to keep pace with current best practices—and have an eye out for what's next—to be prepared to meet future demands of users. What should IT departments expect in the year 2020? Increased automation and artificial intelligence (AI), to name a few. But that's just scratching the surface.
In these on-demand webinars, free to watch, we discussed some of the biggest trends ahead, and more importantly, how service desk leaders and ITSM practitioners can prepare today.
#1: Why Enterprise Service Management Will Soon Become IT's Biggest Mandate
Enterprise service management extends service management technology and practices beyond IT to the entire enterprise, from human resources to facilities and beyond. In this webinar, Jarod Greene, Vice President of Service Management Strategy, shares examples of companies that have successfully adopted enterprise service management, along with practical steps that will help you get started yourself.
#2: ITSM Expert Roundtable - Adapt or Perish: The Future of ITSM

But the promise of AI for the service desk and workforce is only possible with proper planning. Jarod Greene shares the practical steps that will help your IT department effectively leverage artificial intelligence and other next-gen technology to improve your IT service support.
