Live Stream - 12th August - 11am (GMT) - 45 Minutes

A year ago, our industry address The Path Out of Covid set out the blueprint for IT leaders to navigate their organisations through the maelstrom.

Using more than 5 billion data points this is by far the most detailed analysis in ITSM’s history. With IT outsourcing growing at 60% per quarter and more than 40% of board directors believing IT can be outsourced, the need for IT leaders to step up and deliver transformation has never been greater.

The lessons are compelling from those IT leaders who got the journey right and those who got it badly wrong. They are there to be embraced.

Join us for the live stream of the most important industry address of the year for IT.
