  • itSM Solution's courses available on Courseware Marketplace July 21st

A term coined by Gartner, the "Nexus of Forces" is the convergence of cloud, social collaboration, mobile, information and the internet of everything which will combine the physical and virtual worlds. The result is business operations will be exposed to these forces and directly influence how companies reach their customers, run operations, generate revenue, and deliver services. With the data that is exposed through internet-connected devices, cyber security is also an ongoing concern both inside and outside the enterprise. Thus requiring all digital services to be aligned with the needs of the marketplace while being optimized for cost, quality, compliance, security, and risk.

Colin Klein, Director of Global Business Development at aTES, adds, "Demand for digital service and security management training is rapidly growing as companies, who face an increasing skills gap, must now retool their IT organizations in key areas like cloud computing, virtualization, cybersecurity, big data analytics and mobile application development. By partnering with itSM Solutions, we can now meet this demand by providing our customers a balanced portfolio of courses on IT Service Management, Cyber Resilience, Project Management and Agile Methodology. Offering high-quality courseware is table stakes for Arvato."
