This is just a quick post to keep things fresh. First off, the book is finally available for purchase at your favorite book seller.
It has been a busy few weeks for Glenn and I talking with people about the book as well as doing presentations and interviews. Glenn has been traveling around the country as well as internationally talking with his clients and we have received tremendous positive feedback so far on the book.
We jointly delviered the key note address at the annual Lehigh-Delaware Valley itSMF LIG conference and again got very positive feedback from everyone in attendance. We are very excited about the feedback so far and look forward to working directly with many of you on ITSM and CMS/CMDB solutions. If you are interested in seeing the presentation that we delivered at the LDV LIG conference, you can download it from the book’s website www.cmdbimperative.com .
I’m currently preparing for my next presentation which will be at the OMG’s Technical meeting in Washington DC on March 23rd. I will be leading a roundtable discussion on sustainability with regards to Business Operations as part of the “Green Computing Information Day” (http://www.omg.org/news/meetings/tc/agendas/dc-09/gcio-agenda.htm). I truly beleive that we can leverage the work already laid out by the DMTF’s CMDBf specification and the work currently being done by the GCIO around the GBMM to put in place a CMS that not only supports ITSM as we traditionally have seen it but also supports the requirements that a sustainability model would need.
