Information Technology is continually moving forward - whether infrastructure, application or delivery model. Service Management underpins how these components combine to deliver business value. ITSM itself needs to move forward in line with these.

This session will discuss the core concepts and structures of ITSM, and the maturity stages required to match increasingly demanding business needs from IT services. It aims to demonstrate that "Whatever your role in IT - with Service Management, everyone's involved."

It is targeted at those who already have a basic foundation in Service Management and are considering the challenges ahead of them. 'Expert' level members may also benefit, and their own contributions and ideas will be welcomed.
