Webcast: Live Now! Today at 6pm GMT, 10am PST, 1pm EST, we've got a treat for all of you looking to shift your IT operations to more of a service delivery model.

We'll be running a live event exploring the dos and don'ts, the pros and cons and the challenges and opportunities of just such a move. It should be just the ticket.

For years, most organisations have been managing the components of IT with a primary focus on the performance and availability of specific assets such as servers, storage devices, networking equipment and desktop PCs. Those who think deeply on such things, however, reckon things are changing. In the future, it’s all going to be about services, service portfolios and service portfolio management. There will be more of a focus on what’s delivered from IT rather than how.

The trouble is that the word ‘services’ is one of the most over-used in the industry. So while it's easy to throw it into visionary statements about the way IT will be done in a more service-centric way in the future, what exactly does that boil down to, and why should you even care?

If either of these questions is lingering in your mind, or if you are involved in IT operations and support and simply want to get a handle on a bunch of ideas that are likely to hit you at some point, then this event is for you.

With the help of Patrick Ancipink, a service management guru from CA, and Tony Lock, an analyst from our old friends Freeform Dynamics, we'll be picking apart the vision and looking at what it translates to in terms of stuff you can potentially do to make your life easier, create happier users. Not to mention get more ‘respek’ from business management.

Tim Phillips, our usual host for these lively debates, will be chairing the discussion. He'll also be there to handle any questions you might, so come along with plenty and he'll get you the answers you need from the panel.
