FUSION 15 has announced its speaker lineup for the annual conference in New Orleans, LA. MetricNet is pleased to announce that, for the second consecutive year, Jeff Rumburg, Managing Partner of MetricNet, has been selected to speak in the Continual Service Improvement track at the conference. There were over 400 speaker proposal submissions for the FUSION 15 Conference & Expo, making the selection process very difficult and highly competitive.

Mr. Rumburg will be presenting Session 702, “The Changing Landscape of Continuous Improvement”. This session will present two case studies from prominent companies that have implemented real-time benchmarking with their SaaS ITSM tools. It will document their paths from relative immaturity to world-class performance. Objective benchmarking data will demonstrate graphically the dramatic improvements they were able to achieve in Cost per Ticket, Customer Satisfaction, and key service levels as a result of real-time benchmarking.

“The recent introduction of SaaS ITSM tools has addressed the many challenges that have historically made benchmarking a difficult, time consuming, and costly process.” said Jeff Rumburg “By eliminating the need for manual data entry through automatic data capture, and by providing continuous updates of performance vs. thousands of support organizations worldwide, it is now possible to benchmark service and support in real time, at little to no cost or ongoing effort!”

Those interested in hearing Mr. Rumburg speak on The Changing Landscape of Continuous Improvement should attend Session 702 on Wednesday, November 4, 2015 at 9:00am. All those involved in the delivery and support of IT services, and the fundamental concepts behind service management, are encouraged to attend. This includes C-level executives, IT directors, Service Desk and Desktop Support Managers, and supervisors.
