What is IT service management (ITSM)?

IT service management (ITSM) describes the implementation and management of IT services that meet the business needs of the organisation. Unlike the purely technology-driven approach of IT management, IT service management focuses on the quality of services and customer requirements. ITSM therefore has the task of supporting the business processes in the best possible way and ensuring a continuously high service quality with optimal efficiency and low costs.

Typical practical applications of ITSM systems include IT service desks, performance analytics applications, incident management solutions or asset management. When implementing IT service management, companies can follow the guidelines of recognised standards, including ITIL and ISO/IEC 20000 in particular.

IT service management (ITSM) as a competitive factor

By implementing a professional ITSM system, companies manage to gain a competitive advantage in the digital and highly networked business world.

The advantages of ITSM at a glance:

Quality

ITSM focuses on customer requirements and IT services for customers. This makes it pos-sible to sustainably improve the quality of services.

Efficiency

The process-based approach of ITSM software solutions allows workflows to be managed more efficiently. IT professionals receive valuable support in their daily work through pro-fessional IT service management.

Costs

The efficient provision of services and processing of workflows saves time and financial re-sources.

Continual improvement

One of the most important aspects of an ITSM system is the guiding principle of continu-ous improvement: Through the continuous optimisation of processes, we succeed in sus-tainably improving IT productivity and the quality of services.

Visualisation

Modern ITSM solutions are able to visualise processes in a user-friendly way and thus pre-sent workflows in a comprehensible and simple way.

ESM ist das neue ITSM – Vorteile für Ihr Unternehmen

Die Vorteile moderner ESM-Ansätze im Überblick:

  • Effizienz
  • Standardisierung
  • Transparenz
  • Digitalisierung

  • Effiziente Bearbeitung von Service-Requests durch definierte Prozesse
  • Standardisierte und bewährte Vorgehensweise zur Bearbeitung von Tickets
  • Transparente und nachvollziehbare Bearbeitung von Problemen ausserhalb der IT-Infrastruktur
  • Verknüpfung analoger Problemstellungen mit digitalen Servicemethoden

Moderne Serviceansätze erweitern ITSM um Services und Prozesse, die weit über den IT-Bereich hinausgehen. Diese Ansätze werden unter dem Oberbegriff Enterprise Service Management zu-sammengefasst – ITSM ist somit als IT-bezogener Teilbereich des ESM zu verstehen.

Das Enterprise Service Management zielt darauf ab, die aus der IT bekannten Standards und Vorgaben wie ITIL auf sämtliche Dienstleistungen des Unternehmens zu erweitern. Dabei kann es sich beispielsweise um Prozesse der HR-Abteilung, um interne Dienstleistungen des Fachbereichs Controlling oder um Zugangskontrollen für Mitarbeiter handeln. Indem das aus der IT bekannte Ticketsystem auf weitere Abteilungen übertragen wird, kann die Effizienz der Prozesse nachhaltig gesteigert werden.
