‘Business is IT’ and ‘IT is Business’
Information Technology is today recognized as a critical enabler and key differentiator for business success. IT investments are important for businesses to successfully deliver products and services. CEOs, CIOs, CTOs and senior management are concerned about optimizing their IT investments and improving the effectiveness and efficiency of IT resources to support business requirements. Effective management of IT services within an organization is very critical to maximize the return on IT investments. ITSM allows an IT service organization to plan, manage, deliver, monitor, report, review and improve its services and give confidence of effective delivery of services to the business and to its customers.
ITIL® is the most widely accepted approach to IT service management in the world conceived in the late 1980’s by the Cabinet Office in the United Kingdom and other countries. Over the years, it has become an industry, technology and vendor independent de facto standard.
Few benefits from ITIL:-
- Reduction in operating costs and help desk calls.
- Approximately 50% reduction in an organizations total cost of ownership while moving from no adoption of ITIL® to full adoption of ITIL® best practices.
- Increased customer satisfaction
QAI’s ITSM practice facilitates organizations to make significant improvements in the way they manage the services, relationships, processes, people and technologies required to deliver and support IT services and products according to world class standards. QAI’s unique methodology is based on the standards and processes described in the ITIL and ISO 20000, where ITSM processes are seamlessly integrated with people and tools so that your IT infrastructure delivers optimal performance.
ITSM Process Maturity Assessments and Audits:
- ITSM Diagnostic Assessment: This identifies the strengths and weaknesses of an organisation’s ITSM processes and their alignment to business. It determines current level of process capabilities and the existing gaps, with respect to ITIL® best practices.
- ISO 20000 Gap Analysis: This helps organizations to understand the gaps in the existing processes vis-à-vis the ISO 20000 standard, and create an improvement action plan for the achievement of the certification.
