With the conscious shift towards an economy that is service-driven and the extent of influence that IT plays in delivering quality service, IT service management plays a central role in any global organization today. Best practices such as ITIL® and ISO 20000 are well accepted around the world as benchmarks for process improvement in the area of IT Service Management.
About SMS (ISO 20000)
A Service is a means to deliver value to a customer by facilitating outcomes desired by the customer. To achieve the same one needs to have a set of capabilities and processes to direct and control the activities of service provision – which essentially is Service Management. Hence, a service management system needs to be put in place to effectively meet the business needs.
With the support of ISO 20000 (Service Management System), service providers will be able to culminate international best practices for managing services as a core operation of a business. ISO 20000 promotes the “adoption of an integrated process approach to effectively deliver managed services to meet the business and customer requirements”. It would touch on areas as capacity planning, performance management, problem and change management, configuration management and service continuity management.
APEX Global supports the customers in adopting and implementing the best practices of ISO 20000 based on the business functions and strategy of the organization. We ensure that the customers are able to streamline their internal process and systems that help them in increasing the level of their service delivery.
