The aim of this seminar is to investigate and understand the relationship that exists between
the business and the IT service providers, illustrating how their interdependency affects the
achievement of true commercial success.
In recognition that change is often needed to achieve organisational goals, we then introduce the basic concepts of best practice service management using the guidelines produced by the OGC in their ITIL (I.T. Infrastructure Library) publications.
