Did you know? Implementing ITSM can improve the effectiveness of IT functions by over 62%? As there continues to be a global shift towards managing more and more data, and housing data in the cloud, many companies are looking to manage their IT budgets closer and sustaining their infrastructure operations. Many studies have provided data on how IT Operational costs eventually decrease over time, but there are still initial costs, and costs to upgrade, scale and sustain.
Until recently, most technical infrastructure components, devices, applications, etc. resided within the organization in which they served. Since the industry has moved to a more virtual model, data, technology, infrastructure services and even applications can now exist in the cloud. With that, there is a need to clearly understand exactly what is being stored in the cloud and how is it being managed.

Why you should attend
Many IT Professionals are unaware how their jobs directly impact the success of their IT organization and ultimately the business at large. As IT professionals learn on the job, and also participate in educational forums, courses, etc., there is still a need to have a refresher on industry changes and updates. ITIL best practices are here to stay, and will not diminish as time goes by.
More and more leading IT companies are applying ITIL best practices and that means many of us will still need to apply those best practices as well. In some industries, and ITIL Foundation Certification is required to even be considered for IT jobs, and even more so for contractors and consultants.
It will be necessary to refresh your knowledge and realize that many infrastructure operations are all underpinned by managing services, as entire enterprises are now comprised of database, infrastructure, desktop, application and clouds services. For those inquiring about general information and/or improving some areas within your IT organization, this webinar is for you.
