Just to let you know of our next event from Auxilion which is focused on how Irish firms have used cloud services and digital transformation successfully.
I am holding a number of seats for my personal guests, if you missed the invite, just let me know. If you are tight on time, we welcome you and a few of your team to even just join us for lunch (on us!) anytime between 1.00 -2.00pm next Wednesday. I will be there on the day too, so if you can make it would be good to catch up.
You can register using the link below, or just let me know and I can have my colleagues get you all registered and setup.
Professional Cloud Service Manager Day 3- May 19th
Day three of the Professional Cloud Service Manager drew to a close some hours ago. The scenic backdrop of Glanmire in Cork was a perfect location to take three days out to deliver the course. We had an international affair with delegates from Ireland, Finland and Saudi Arabia.
Day three examined a number of ITIL process and the impact of cloud on these. We examined the role of governance and the gaps that exist today. Exam prep completed after lunch. It was a shame to say goodbye to all, but as the phrase goes ‘all good things must come to an end’.
Best of luck to all the delegates with the exam and results.
I am in the idyllic surroundings of Glanmire in Cork Ireland getting ready for tomorrows delivery of the Professional Cloud Service Manager course. Throughout day one I strip away all the marketing and technological layers to ensure delegates get the real and simple understanding of what cloud computing is all about. We work through key aspects of cloud and take a time warp back to the 1950s.
After lunch there is one hour of hands on workbook assignments for the delegates, then we get to grips with ten critical roles in cloud computing and spend some time on exam prep and review a number of real world case studies.
The final assignment of the day is a sample exam paper which the delegates get to do for homework. Yes you work hard and fast on this course!!
By the end of the day the delegates will be able to describe what cloud computing is in three, yes three, simple words – and more, but this is an achievement in itself.
Calling all Irish based IT Service Managers, IT managers and anyone else in the industry…
Can you help with the following research project by answering a small survey?
Aislinn Collins is currently completing her 3rd year of a BSc. in IT Management in the Institute of Technology Tallaght.
In order to complete her 3rd Year project she is undertaking research on the impact of the adoption of Cloud Computing on Information Technology Service Management within Irish organizations.
The focus will be on large organizations but she is happy to receive completed questionnaires from micro, small and medium-sized organizations in order to compare experiences across different sectors.
Research questions to be answered include whether there is a need for formal ITSM practices such as ITIL or COBIT to be adapted or augmented in light of the new service and deployment models associated with cloud computing.
