Business Service Management



Business Service Management

Business Service Management (BSM) expresses the need of IT departments to improve the communication and efficiency between business and technical areas. Organizations have been comfortably living with these differences but, in reality, IT has been anticipating this situation by proving their authentic value and their great responsibility in adding value to the business.

IT is facing the need to rapidly gain additional management and marketing capabilities, in order to keep supporting business demands, while spending less and delivering more. New technological solutions and paradigms, such as cloud computing, have created new challenges. The IT departments operations will require more automated delivery and more strategic planning, where resources need to be maximized.

 

 

The challenges of Business Service Management reside in:

  •  Increasing dependency of organizations on IT services
  •  Inconsistency in the quality of service delivery
  •  Increasing pressure to cut down IT costs
  •  Increasing IT service complexity and responsibility fragmentation of the service delivery chain
  •  The speed with which IT departments need to adapt and respond to new business trends and requirements.

  •  Aggregate and present information from all silos of the IT domains, as a whole, as if they belonged to just one organization
