Thoughts on SMcongress and the future of ITSM. The Service Management Inaugural Congress (SMCongress) is the output of the "RevNet" event at the 2013 Fusion ITSM conference in the USA.

Thoughts on SMcongress and the future of ITSM

As a few of you know, twenty-something ITSM thinkers got together in a room to see what would happen. This happened. It has been followed by some unlovely debate and a number of articles.

My First ITSM Conference

Sadly so far I haven't worked for organisations who were members so attending the annual ITSM conference was always a very distant wish. This year, however, thanks to an amazing offer from Matthew Burrows at BSM Impact to collaborate on an article about Business Relationship Management, I have found myself being involved with itSMF UK despite not being a member. Our article was published in the summer edition of Service Talk Magazine and later it became a finalist in the Submission of the Year Awards. Then thanks to even more kindness and generosity by Sophie Danby of Ovum and Ben Clancy and itSMF UK I was invited to ITSM12 taking place in London.

So, are we there yet? Is ITIL as successful as we hoped?

There are still many organizations chasing the elusive concept of business alignment or business integration and there’s still much talk about “the business” and IT. If you’re one of those still struggling, you can start by considering that there is no “business and IT”, there’s just the business!
