Blog Post by Tim Finch on Mon, 26/3/2018 - 12:31

Where does Microsoft plan on making money in the next few years? It won’t be from selling desktop operating systems... Microsoft are continuing to roll with the fact that it’s too expensive for one organisation to write software. Software needs to be open source, or it can’t compete.

RESILIA Foundation & Practitioner

The complete best practice for cyber resilience underpinning cyber security course

Or are you the next whale waiting to be harpooned?

The world is changing so fast, with new threats emerging every day.

VeriSM – Service Management thinking is changing into the future

2017 was a frustrating year for me in ITSM. ITIL, in its current form, has been around for 10 years (the 2011 revision warmed it up a little, but wasn’t exactly been a big change, let’s face it) and that’s a long time in IT terms.

BUT there have been big changes in approach throughout service delivery and we’re still waiting for ITIL to catch up.
