5 Key Questions on Enterprise Service Management Success

Posted by InvGate on August 20, 2020 at 5:47 AM
One of the few good things that has come out of the COVID-19 crisis is that it has helped to accelerate digital transformation within organizations. Whether it be new products and services that exploit technology and data. Whether it be improved customer engagement mechanisms that again leverage technology and data. Or whether it be improved back-office operations that replace the antiquated, ad hoc, manual processes employed by other business functions. This blog looks at the latter of these digital transformation elements – back-office digital transformation or what the IT service management (ITSM) community has called “enterprise service management” for the last decade.

Posted by InvGate on June 4, 2020 at 2:58 PM
The COVID-19 crisis has brought new ways of working to many employees, with them now confined to their homes. Likely using more technology – to get their work done – than ever.

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.
