What is ITSM and How Can it Help Your Business?

AdobeStock_135663394

ITSM stands for Information Technology Service Management. It refers to all managerial aspects of IT businesses, including models for IT planning, support, delivery, security, and infrastructure. All aspects of ITSM are process-based. It is also referred to sometimes as operations architecture, as it is a “back office” managerial activity. But, beyond a technical definition, what can ITSM do to help your company? We've done some research and found these helpful uses of ITSM:

What Exactly is ITSM?

BMC.com defines ITSM as how an IT department manages information systems. If you’re running IT systems, you’re running ITSM. Most people consider IT as a means of delivering services to clients. These services, however, need to be managed. That’s where ITSM comes in.

ITSM vs. ITIL

If IT Service Management is a means of delivering a service to customers, then ITIL is the framework for that means. ITIL is one of the most-used frameworks for ITSM and has been adopted by many certified practitioners, such as ServiceNow.  ITIL and ITSM work together to fit the needs of businesses. An IT organization making use of ITIL will decide which aspects of it to adopt. Some organizations will only adopt operational processes — such as incident management — and others will cover their entire IT strategy through ITIL.
