    Is the IT Department delivering real Business Value?

    The industry trend in Business Transformation has identified the IT organization as a key enabler. The implications for IT are significant. It requires not only new interoperable applications and infrastructure, but mature IT Service Management to establish, deliver and support new IT Services and associated Infrastructure. Whether an organization is undergoing large scale change or simply wants more cost efficient IT services, new directives for IT demand accountability for business value in four key areas; Efficiency, Effectiveness, Customer Satisfaction and Enabling Business Change.

    Are you being asked to do more with less / Need to run IT like a business?

    Historically, IT organizations have been internally focused and organized around technology, sometimes duplicating capability across several IT departments. Existing services and practices may need to be aligned to business needs, made common across the IT organization or made more efficient. However, even the most capable of IT organizations may be challenged by the scale and pace of Business and IT Transformation.

    Being accountable for IT business value requires a balanced approach to running the IT organization. Strategic, tactical and operational needs must be managed if IT Services are to; be aligned with the business, satisfy business demand, and support of users on a day-to-day basis. Achieving the right balance across the four key areas of accountability requires the coordination of all delivery and support teams as part of an end-to-end Service Supply Chain.

    Best Practices for IT Service Management

    Addressing these needs are industry best practices for IT Service Management (ITSM), including the IT Infrastructure Library (ITIL). These provide a framework for improving the alignment and operation of IT service organizations, making accountability for business value a realistic goal. Not a rigid standard, ITIL encourages IT organizations to adapt the framework to suit business needs.

    In the mid 1990s, ITIL was introduced to North America and has seen wide acceptance by both private and public sectors. ITIL is now the worldwide de facto standard for IT Service Management and has had a major impact on IT Service Management and the integration of processes, organization and tools.
