Industry Webinar Highlights the Value of IT Service Management in Addressing Security, Compliance, and Operational Effectiveness

Event features Research Director Andi Mann of Enterprise Management Associates and Ecora Chief Compliance Advisor James Sayles

Portsmouth, N.H. – (BUSINESS WIRE) – Ecora Software, a leading provider of change and compliance reporting solutions and Enterprise Management Associates (EMA), the leading independent industry analyst and consulting firm dedicated to the IT Management market, will host a joint webinar entitled “Reigning in the Effects of Uncontrolled Change.” This webinar will feature EMA Research Director Andi Mann and Ecora's Chief Compliance Advisor James Sayles.

In this presentation, Andi Mann and James Sayles will discuss how IT organizations have become an increasingly critical link to the delivery of business services in today's global economy. As many IT organizations operate under Service Level Agreements requiring nearly seamless availability of critical systems, there is a lack of visibility into the myriad of changes taking place in today's IT infrastructure. This lack of clarity threatens to cripple the security, compliance, and operational effectiveness of the enterprise.

In this webinar attendees will learn:

  • Why Organizations Lack Visibility into Configuration Change
  • How Uncontrolled Change Leads to Security Breaches
  • You Can't Be Compliant without Effective Change Management
  • Change Requests aren't Done Until They're Validated
  • Virtualization Actually Make Controlling Change More Complicated
  • A Configuration Management Database (CMDB) is Integral to IT Service Management
  • Without Automated Tools, Controlling Change is Impossible
