itSMF España will hold its Annual Congress # Vision19 in Madrid on 27 and 28 November, with the collaboration of the Spanish Association for Standardization, UNE.
This was announced by both companies in a media presentation this morning at the headquarters of the Spanish standardisation organisation.
"The objective of the Congress is to address, from Service Governance and Management in an increasingly As-a-Service world, the challenges facing organisations as part of business transformation", declared Javier Peris, executive vice-president of itSMF.
Paloma García, UNE Director of Standardization and Stakeholder Programmes of the Spanish Association for Standardization, UNE, declared: "The Spanish standardisation organization wants to do its bit. Technical standards are a driving force in the success of the Digital Economy. Overall, more than 2,600 standards contribute to building trust in organisations in the ICT sector."
She continued, "UNE carries the opinions of the industry's experts in Spain to international standardisation forums where key standards for the competitiveness of organisations are developed. This is done through Technical Standardization Committees, such as CTN 71 on Digital Enabling Technologies, chaired by the Secretary of State for Digital Advancement (SEAD), which works in areas such as Artificial Intelligence (IA), the Internet of Things (IoT), Blockchain and Smart Cities, among others."
In this regard, it announced the constitution of the new National Subcommittee CTN71/SC40 "Management and Governance of IT services" within UNE, headed by itSMF. Its objective is to become the Spanish reference for the development of standards, reports and technical specifications in the field of IT Management and Governance, being the channel of influence in international developments in ISO and IEC, where projects on IT activities are already underway.
During the congress, the subcommittee SC40 will outline its objectives, in Exhibition area 1, with the participation of the Ministry of Economy and Enterprise, together with Antonio Alcolea, deputy director general of development of the Information Society of SEAD.
