Jeff Rumburg, co-founder and Managing Partner of MetricNet, will present the results of its 2012 IT Service and Support Benchmark at the Annual HDI Conference in Las Vegas. This marks the 18th time Mr. Rumburg has been selected as a speaker for the HDI Service and Support Conference. In the first of two presentations to be delivered at the conference, Mr. Rumburg will present the industry’s first ever benchmarking data on the economic value of IT service and support. “Support groups that understand and quantify their value propositions gain a number of important advantages.” says Rumburg “Chief among them is the ability to obtain funding and other resources based on the economic benefits of support. This is the first time the industry will be seeing hard benchmarking data on the economic value of service and support.” Those interested in seeing Mr. Rumburg speak should attend session 101, The Economic Impact of Support: What’s Your Value Proposition? This session takes place Wednesday, April 17 at 10:15am and will include case studies from IT support organizations that quantify and track the economic value of support. Senior-level VPs, directors, managers, CIOs, CTOs and all other service and support professionals are encouraged to attend. Mr. Rumburg currently serves on HDI’s Strategic Advisory Board and has been retained as a service desk and desktop support expert by some of the world’s largest corporations, including American Express, Hewlett-Packard, General Motors, and IBM.
