Julie Mohr and Mark Galligan, itSMF USA
After nearly half a decade of economic turbulence the Service Desk remains the center piece of the “way in” and often the “way out” of today’s IT Operations. With staffing cuts, freezes, an increasing volume of work and a need to improve operating effectiveness while increasing operating efficiencies, how can today’s Service Desk survive and even thrive?

- Today’s IT Service market place
- Open for Business
- Being passionate about Service Desk services (‘cause the sane ones quit)
