Service Level Management

Service Level Management can enhance and assure the quality of your IT services. This requires:

  • Regular negotiation and review of service levels
  • Monitoring and reporting on the achievement of objectives
  • Working both proactively and reactively to improve poor service quality
  • An awareness of cost-related issues.

Effective Service Level Management can improve understanding and communication between IT executives and their internal and external customers.

Why Service Level Management?

Companies are increasingly dependent on the operational capability of Information Technology. As a result IT service requirements also increase, creating the need for an effective IT Service Management (ITSM) Strategy. Good ITSM can enhance:

  • End user productivity
  • Operational performance
  • Overall efficiency

One key aspect of ITSM is the improvement of communications between the IT organisation and the operational business.

ITSM is the basis from which to make operational and strategic IT Management measurable. Despite this, many companies still haven?t implemented an ITSM strategy in their business. Risk and security management, often-forgotten, are very important aspects of a complete and reliable approach to security. Strategic Service Management can help put things right.
