Service Management Roadshow - Introduction to IT Service Management at the BCS Coventry Branch

Wednesday 18 September 2013

6.30pm - 8.30pm

EC 1-12, New Engineering and Computing Block, Coventry University (TBC)

Service Management has been adopted by many thousands of companies worldwide but what is it?

Fundamentally, it's a way to manage the delivery of IT, focused on the customers perception of IT's contribution to the business.

This short introduction to Service Management will explain the key concepts and features and will give attendees sufficient information to understand and build upon the essentials. We’ll begin with what the industry is getting out of Service Management, move on to explain ITIL® and ISO20000 in some detail and then finish with a brief look at other linked topics.

Our speaker will cover...

  • ITIL
  • ISO20000
  • COBIT and Lean

and finish with a Q&A session.
