Here is what I saw
What an amazing year for the team at AllThingsITSM. What started as a spontaneous chat with a few industry legends at Fusion14, with the audio recorded on an iPhone 4, video captured with the laptop webcam and with a backdrop of different vendors is now a fully fledged video recording setup, with complete onsite production team, producing high quality event content.
Who would have thought, at the end of 2014, that we would have recorded interviews at 8 different global events, captured over 150 interviews with IT’s best and brightest and have plans for many more events in 2016.
We learned a lot this year and here are just a few on that list.
- We learned that delivering the podcast is very expensive and we could not do it without the support of great vendors like BMC Software, Cherwell, Navvia, Landesk, SDI, Hornbill, ServiceNow, Certification Game, HPE, Microsoft and the team at Goto Marketers
- We learned that even without the support of events we attend, people would leave an event venue to come have a chat with the team and share their expertise
- We learned that events, vendors and the guests need to be our partners to succeed. We are just a vehicle for their message, so let’s do it together
- We learned we have a lot of support out there when it comes to helping us online and onsite
