The study is scheduled to take place during the months of April and May 2011, and Forrester and itSMF USA will present the study results and critical insights at the upcoming Fusion 11 Conference, September 25 - 28, 2011 in Washington, DC.

The joint research study by itSMF USA and Forrester Research will be conducted on an annual basis to allow for deeper trending and analysis in future years.

“This study will help guide infrastructure and operations professionals in the changing Service Management environment through a better understanding of people, process, and technology trends and best practices,” said Glenn O’Donnell, Senior Analyst, serving Infrastructure & Operations professionals, Forrester Research.

The study will address a range of current topics for IT today, including:

- The role of IT Service Management in bridging the gap between application and infrastructure teams

- The level of ITIL process adoption and their relationship to benefits realized

- The role of training and certification in adoption

- The effect of executive sponsorship level on both adoption and benefits realized

- The adoption and impact of ITIL v3

- The impact of tools on ITSM adoption

The study will be published by Forrester Research as a joint effort with itSMF USA. After the Fusion 11 conference has concluded, all itSMF USA members and survey participants will be able to access the results of the study at no charge. The study will also be made available to Forrester Research members, and it will be available for purchase at www.forrester.com.
