VeriSM™ is a Service Management approach, specifically tailored to support organisations to help them succeed in the world of digital services. It aims to help organisation define their service management principles. These principles will be relevant to all products and services, and include areas like security, quality, cost and risk.

We’ve invited Claire Agutter to talk about this new approach and explain how it fits into the IT Service Management eco-system. We will then have Claire and a panel discuss the latest changes in the world of service management, and how the VeriSM approach has been created to help organisations adapt in the digital era. We’ll end with a Q&A session so that attendees can ask questions about VeriSM and what it can do for ITSM practitioners.
