Commenting on the launch, Bentley says: “Our “Resource As A Service” is a bespoke service created for individual clients’ needs where we create and manage specific resource pools in line with clients demands. Typically these are based around ITIL, COBIT and ISO 20000, utilising ITSM Tools such as CA, IBM or BMC, but is certainly not limited to these areas.”
