Founded by Carlos Casanova in 2008 after working nearly two decades with multi-national companies to deliver cost effective technology solutions, K2 Solutions Group, Inc. was started based on the belief that with the right partnerships and infusing simplicity into technology solutions, all challenges no matter how large could be reached. They simply needed to be tackled as smaller and less complex components of the larger initiative. His experience was that far too often, large challenges such as the Configuration Management Database as defined in version 2 of the IT Infrastructure Library (ITIL V2) and the Configuration Management System as defined in ITIL V3, were failing regularly. The sentiment that CMDB and CMS initiatives could not be delivered successfully because they were too large and complex, pushed Mr. Casanova and Mr. O’Donnell to join forces and co-author “The CMDB Imperative” as way to educate and enable more organizations to succeed in their efforts. In addition, Mr. Casanova then joined the editorial staff of the itSMF newsletter in order to support itSMFs efforts to help educate service management professionals through its periodical “The Forum”.
