In any specialized field there are bound to be examples of phrases and acronyms that can cause confusion to anyone that doesn’t understand them too well. The truth is, even if you work in the specific field where such examples are used, you are more than likely to be stumped by a few such phrases. This isn’t necessarily even a result of any shortcomings when it comes to your knowledge, but can rather be attributed to the abundance of new, never-before seen words appearing in newer, never-before heard of fields. These new areas of expertise seem to pop-up everywhere, and provide valuable services, with the unfortunate side effect of also confusing those that are not familiar with the specific jargon they use to explain their purpose.
One such valuable function is served by IT Service Management Solutions. Now, seeing as how IT itself is a relatively new field, that means that its many facets, and their individual functions can be easily confused, as to most people they may seem similar. IT Service Management, or ITSM, is simply the way in which you manage the information systems that deliver value to your customers. ITSM can include functions like supervising the distribution of a budget for costs, managing and fixing changes, or simply mitigating potential problems. Basically, the business provides IT Service Management solutions for various problems.
A lot of business owners do however have their reservations as to the necessity of such a service and there are a few often repeated reasons for this. One is that since they are not that big of a company, they are very capable of managing themselves without having to ask for outside help, and getting a third party involved. Another is that they consider it an unneeded expense, which they could instead use to invest into their business. These are without a doubt very valid concerns and trying to run the business more independently as best as one can is a sign that these people do care about improving themselves and are wary of the prospect of entrusting that responsibility to an outside party.
But a lot of other business owners who had the same concerns at the beginning, have since put them to rest. ITSM does not take away agency from the company, but rather helps it improve in the very ways that most companies believe it will hinder them in. In the long run, ITSM can improve the efficiency of company management by streamlining the tasks that are important, and removing redundant ones, and by doing so it can help increase profit for the company, which usually results in receiving more positive customer feedback.
