The Importance of ITAM in the “New Normal”

Posted by InvGate on August 12, 2020 at 4:42 AM
IT asset management (ITAM) is an IT management practice that sadly doesn’t always get the attention it deserves. When the COVID-19 crisis hit us, IT departments across the globe scrambled to react, overtime was authorized, and hopefully automation was introduced and self-service was promoted. But now that we’re returning to normal (or something like it), ITAM is a corporate capability that will make the difference – from “keeping the lights on” to significantly improving employee experience by supporting flexible working, increasing resilience, and reducing risk. To help you to appreciate the value of ITAM, this blog looks at how it could play an important part in supporting your IT organization’s operations and outcomes in the new normal.

Posted by InvGate on August 6, 2020 at 4:44 PM
Much was written about the impact of the COVID-19 crisis on IT service management (ITSM) and IT support, and rightly so. Now, as we return to some semblance of normality - what many are calling the “new normal” - there’s still a need to consider what else either has or will need to change to reflect new ways of working and new expectations of IT organizations and the technology-enabled services they provide.

How to Persuade IT Management to Support Digital Transformation

Posted by InvGate on July 9, 2020 at 12:12 PM
In this post-COVID-19-crisis “new normal,” it might feel as though the whole world is gunning for digital transformation. But it’s not always the case for individuals, who may be loathe - for a variety of reasons - to work with even more automation. And how do we feel about digital transformation within IT? Ask any IT person what they worry about the most and, thanks to the anticipated additional workload, you’ll often hear “digital transformation” which is a shame. Because if used effectively, digital transformation can increase revenues and operational efficiency, eliminate functional silos, and improve the customer experience.   The “new normal” has opened the eyes of many to the need for digital transformation. But, if you still need help in getting people – especially IT management – onside with the need for digital transformation, then this blog is for you.

Effective Queue Management in a Crisis

Posted by InvGate on June 17, 2020 at 1:55 PM
We think we can all agree that it’s not easy delivering the best IT support service to our colleagues at the moment. There’s a higher volume of tickets, a lack of people due to illness, social distancing, or self-isolation (with IT support staff remote working too), as well as limited equipment and delivery mechanisms. Plus, our customers are likely to feel differently, and isolated, when IT issues prevent them from doing the work they need to do while working at home.  It all means that keeping normal service levels going is a real challenge. To help, this blog explains how you can manage your queues effectively such that you and your team can better keep on top of the most important things.
