itSMF UK celebrates 21 years of service management knowledge and vision at ITSM12

 itSMF UK, the UK’s largest service management user group, today announced an impressive agenda and speaker line up for its biggest and best conference yet – ITSM12. The 2012 conference will take place on 5th and 6th November at the Novotel London West.

This year’s keynote, Simon Wardley, one of the UK’s top 50 most influential people in IT (voted by Computer Weekly readers) will focus on IT strategy and new technologies. A visionary speaker, Simon has spent the last 15 years defining future directions for companies in the FMCG, retail and IT industries.

The itSMF UK Conference and Exhibition is the annual event for IT Service Management professionals, offering education and networking opportunities along with the highly popular Service Management Awards dinner. Over 50 educational workshops are scheduled, including presentations from all the itSMF’s special interest groups, an entire series of sessions dedicated to problem management, and experience-based talks from user organisations including Tesco Bank, The Co-Operative Bank, Oxford University and Everything Everywhere. The popular interactive plenary session will also be returning this year, allowing the audience to vote on discussion topics via interactive keypads.

Alongside the conference, the ever-popular industry exhibition includes all the industry’s leading tool vendors, product suppliers and consultancies – an excellent opportunity to catch up with over 40 organisations in one place.
