SMtech forum – Cloud Management
October 15, 9:30 am - 4:30 pm
“I’ve looked at clouds from both sides now
From up and down, and still somehow
It’s cloud illusions I recall
I really don’t know clouds at all.”
Artist: Joni Mitchell / Song: Both Sides Now
Cloud computing is now a well-established approach to delivering IT services – yet for many service managers it retains a mystique that Joni Mitchell would understand only too well.
Cloud-based IT offers many potential advantages to new and established enterprises, in terms of agility, scalability and ease of management. Despite the benefits of resources on demand, though, ITSM remains as important in a cloud-based environment as in a traditional data centre. Clearly defined change/release, incident and problem procedures are essential to any mature business, while configuration and service level management take on a new significance in the cloud.
Many product vendors have launched new toolsets to support cloud computing more effectively, but as ever there remain many questions to consider in choosing the best solutions. Find out what needs to change and how in our SMtech event, Cloud Management.
What will it involve?
The day will start with presentations from the top SM technology companies, outlining their key offerings and the benefits they provide. Then it’s over to you – ask the difficult questions, debate the key issues with other attendees, watch the demos at the vendors’ stands.
It’s the SM software equivalent of speed dating – we’ll help you find the ideal partner to solve your business needs, and without the awkward conversations and endless hours of online research.
