ITIL Roles Types and Their Responsibilities

Posted by InvGate on January 30, 2019 at 3:57 PM
With the creation of IT service management (ITSM) capabilities, you’ll find that role types are an important aspect to include; because, after all, you can’t get anything done without the right people (and with those right people knowing exactly what they should and shouldn’t be doing). To help, ITIL offers up a number of generic role types that are then applicable across its various ITSM processes (or capabilities) – where these are then specific, rather than generic, roles, i.e. the generic roles become specific when attached to a certain ITIL process such as incident management.

3 Key 2019 Trends for the IT Service Desk

Posted by Stephen Mann on January 9, 2019 at 10:02 AM
How’s your IT service desk faring? Hopefully it’s meeting all the agreed service level agreement (SLA) targets, your end users and customers are happy, and so are your service desk agents. Or maybe they’re not and you need to improve your operations, performance, and the perceptions that people have of the delivered IT support capabilities. Looking forward to IT support in 2019, the people who agreed with the former – that everything is great with their IT support capabilities – will still, in many ways, have the same challenges and opportunities as those who agreed with the latter. Odd, I know – with the key difference being that they might be better positioned to address them.

10 Tips for Getting Started with Kanban

Posted by InvGate on December 19, 2018 at 9:45 AM
Kanban has become a very popular work – or workflow – management tool, especially in the Lean, Agile, and DevOps worlds. It has also found its way into IT service management (ITSM) as a way of providing focus and insight into work jobs/tasks and flows. For example, in managing ticket queues, planned and unplanned tasks, or projects and improvement activities. As well as offering a visual overview of all of the work to hand, it also provides insight into the status of work items and offers motivation to people who can hopefully see their work progressing from left to right – from “to do” (or “to-be-started”) to “complete.” Plus, it allows management to better understand the relative workload levels, blockages, and the performance of both individuals and teams.

Posted by Sabrina Pagnotta on December 12, 2018 at 1:46 PM
We finish 2018 with excitement over all the new features we delivered. Thanks to the support of our growing customer base, we’ve had a highly successful year at InvGate HQ – we’ve launched a new product in line with customer feedback, you helped our software to arrive in new countries, we opened an office in Mexico, and all our internal teams expanded to keep up with customer-demand. Product wise, the last 12 months were pretty intense, which is exactly how we like it - you’ve got to work hard to keep customers satisfied and remain a top player! So yes, lots of things happened in 2018 and so the purpose of this blog is simply to provide a recap on all the major launches, updates, and feature releases we had (you know… in case you missed it!).
