itSMF Local Interest Groups; Minnesota this Wednesday (and a shameless HP Discover plug)

I’ll be at the Minnesota itSMF LIG meeting on Wednesday hosting a couple of process (table) discussions and also generally representing HP. HP will be hosting table talks on end-to-end change management (reflective of our overall change, configuration, and release management aka CCRM solution) and self-service request management with a spin on fulfillment in cloud environments. We were going to run these talks sequentially, but luckily StrataCom was willing and able host change so now we’re doing them in parallel. While it is short notice, if you are going to be there, please stop by one of the table discussions and say "Hi".


With the itSMF on my mind, I recently attended the Rocky Mountain itSMF LIG a couple of weeks ago were the topic was Fantastic Frameworks. I worked on a compliance/audit project for a couple of years in the SOX heyday. One of the topics was on CobiT and it was interesting for me to see what the latest was with respect to ITIL and CobiT synergies. One of the speakers was from HDI and another was from Pink Elephant. Thinking of itSMF, Pink, and HDI does make me wonder where people meet face-to-face these days. I’d be interested in any feedback people might have.


Lastly speaking of CCRM, I will be speaking on this at HP Discover in a couple of weeks. With all of the interest in cloud, automation, and what-not, the release part of CCRM has been garnering more interest lately. We’ll discuss all of these points in the session. My session is on Wednesday afternoon. Here are a few more details.


Session ID: 4470
Session title: Integrated configuration, change, and release management  


I’ll also be hosting some of the Service Manager customer roundtables. There will also be Asset Manager roundtables along with integrated solution roundtables including CCRM. R&D and Product Management will be co-hosting these. I’m looking forward to meeting any readers of this blog at HP Discover.
