Information Technology (IT) service management is the organization of all the activities that help a company design and manage their IT services. The Management software provides extensive reviews on management reports, it governs risk potential, processes planning, monitoring and deploying of IT infrastructure. The IT applications are growing in volume and demand every moment. Deployment of these critical applications and research on the platform to be deployed is one of the essential functions of the management team. The IT management includes the deployment of the firewall, and the management of cyber security to protect the vulnerable data within the internal and the external portal of an organization.

Software and Frameworks for ITSM

  • Microsoft Operation Framework: It has three integrated phase within its working spectrum. The first is the planning phase that synchronizes business model with that of the IT department of an organization. It maintains the compliance; manage finances, collaboration with technology companies, and integration of cyber technology within the company’s networking system. The following building stage maintains the deployment of the application, builds, manages and plans the services within the firm. The last stage is the operation phase that monitors the overall working of the IT system and its infrastructure.

  • COBIT: It is the framework developed by IT Governance Institute and the Information Systems Audit and Control Association (ISACA) that provides end to end IT management solution of enterprise level. It has a single integrated network with a holistic approach that monitors risk and governance of the service deployment within a firm.

  • ITIL (Information Technology Infrastructure Library): It increases service availability by designing the service strategies, deploying services, maintaining software assets, security, and applications. Other necessary feature includes business relationship management, suppliers’ relationship management, planning, reporting, education, communication and liaison of businesses.

Challenges in IT Service Management

  • Cost transparency: The cost incurred on IT and its related field are easy to conceal, and the actual optimization of the expenditure often becomes hard to detect in short terms. It is a known fact that IT infrastructure requires a massive amount of expenditure as more and more industries are willing to digitalize their workload and leverage data to gain higher profitability. Thus a proper management of the IT will help organizations bring down their annual expenditure, optimize their return on investment and strengthen the cyber security of the IT infrastructure.

  • Cloud: Businesses are willing to take in the process of transition to clouds to reduce the cost of infrastructure spent on the internal data center. The option of the right model of cloud computing is vital as well as choosing the right server depending on the time frame.

  • BYOD: BYOD has become one of the popular device acquiring modes in the IT world. But they have the major problem of having corporate data breaches, as well as the employees, are wary of using their own devices because it would be easier to intrude on the personal data of the employee saved in the device hardware. The maintenance of data security, when accessed through remote, unprotected devices, creates a continuous hindrance for the technology team.

  • Information governance: The ever-increasing amount of information in the business database gets harder to retain if it is not organized properly. Information security is often compromised in a poorly governed IT environment. 

    IT Service Management (ITSM) alludes to the whole of exercises – coordinated by strategies, composed and organized in procedures and supporting methods – that are performed by an association to design, plan, deliver, work, and control IT services offered to clients. It deals with the execution of IT services that address clients' issues, and it is performed by the IT experts through a suitable mix of individuals, process, and information technology.

    Contrasting from more technology-driven IT management approaches like system administration and IT frameworks administration, ITSM is defined by embracing a procedure approach towards management, concentrating on client needs and IT services for clients instead of IT frameworks, and pushing persistent change.

    ITSM has ties and primary interests with other IT, and general administration approaches, for example, quality management, data security management, and software engineering. Subsequently, ITSM systems have been impacted by several standards and received ideas from them, for example, CMMI, ISO 9000 or ISO/IEC 27000.

    There is a worldwide, section-based proficient affiliation, the ITSM Forum (itSMF). The primary objective of the itSMF is to encourage the exchange of experiences and thoughts between clients of ITSM frameworks. To this end, national itSMF sections conduct conferences and workshops. Also, some of them add to the interpretations of ITSM framework reports into their individual dialects or issue own ITSM guides. There are a few certifications for service management like ITIL foundation 2011.

    Execution of ITSM procedures in an association, particularly those procedures that are more workflow-oriented can profit altogether from being bolstered with specific software tools. ITSM tools are often promoted as ITSM suites, which strengthen not one, but rather a whole set of ITSM processes. They, for the most part, incorporate a tool apparatus for a configuration management database. ITSM tools are also known as ITIL tools.
