OGC need to get broadband up at Castle ITIL to understand the 21st Century.

This may not come as a surprise to you, but it does to me. I - along with The ITIL Imp - was under the misapprehension that the ITIL Live Portal was going to be free. Nope.

The money engine rumbles on. Now far be it for the IT Skeptic to suggest there is anything wrong in charging for web services. I would rather like to.

But this means the ITIL Live Portal will not be the long-hoped-for official community place for ITIL. It is just another ITIL commercial product. I for one won't be contributing any free content to a commercial site.

It also demonstrates how miserably out of touch with the 21st Century are OGC and the rest of the ITIL establishment. They need to get broadband up at the castle. Right after electricity.


Maybe I was right...


Maybe I was right in my previous post that the current best-management-practice site is it!

As far as the Live site goes, given we're talking about a commercial product, I have no objections to a pay service provided it adds value. For those that are serious about using v3 guidance, maybe this is the "missing link" that will help people connect to what helps produce results.

If nothing else, I am certainly a bit of an optimist...

Hi, I too thought that this


I too thought that this was going to be community based etc. Now I feel that it will just be another place for vendors to add vendor style content - which in turn will NOT facilitate real "best practice" experience becoming available.

A let down in my book :(

Yeah, just typical...

Hi Skeptic,

I'm glad I'm not the only one who thought that the ITIL Live Portal was going to be free. It's bugged me so much that I've written a follow up ( http://itilimp.blogspot.com/2008/06/itil-live-portal-what-did-they-promi... ) because I wanted to check what was published rather than just what I had heard Sharon say at various seminars and conferences. I'm still pissed off about it!
