Publications and analyst reports are foretelling of massive changes coming to the world of service and support. Instead of prognosticating about what might happen, this presentation will discuss what is really going on—right now—in the world of IT, what impact it is having on jobs, and what it means for the skills support center analysts and customer service representatives will need from now on.
