Hope you have had a chance to see one of the many Breakfast Club meetings this year. I realize it’s early for Vegas (7:15AM), but you can bring your breakfast since most of the rooms have tables. That way, having you coffee and sweet roll while learning some great content is possible. I’ve been fortunate enough to catch a couple of those myself.
Tuesday’s morning keynote had Nick Carr about “cloud computing” and disruptive technology. Thinking of using the cloud for any and all corporate applications is amazing and a bit scary. There are some obstacles, according to Mr. Carr such as security of data, reliability, connectivity, data portability standards, and my personal favorite-fear of change-mommy!!
There were lots of great presentations throughout the day, and there was mine! I did a session on the biggest mistakes IT orgs make implementing problem management and how to avoid them. Seemed successful since no fruit was thrown my direction.
At the end of the afternoon, we had our second visit by Wayne Cotter who as usual, was hilarious. Then the big ITIL birthday bash complete with cake, champagne, bubbles, pointy hats and many prizes. What a day.
