Today, Pink Elephant, a global provider of IT Service Management (ITSM) education and training, honored three organizations with 2012 IT Excellence Awards at the 17th Annual International IT Service Management Conference & Exhibition, Pink13. “There are many ITSM victories that more IT professionals should hear about,” said George Spalding, Executive Vice President of Pink Elephant. “Our annual conference is the perfect occasion to recognize excellence in the industry, and introduce hundreds of IT professionals to real-life ITSM success stories.”
There are close to 2,000 IT professionals in attendance at this year’s week and half long event at the beautiful Las Vegas Bellagio Hotel. One of the highlights each year is Pink Elephant’s presentation of the IT Excellence Awards. This year the awards were presented to:
