What Organizations Are Looking For in improving service management?

Delivering a seamless and incident-free user experience has never been more difficult — or more important — as employees rely on the whole stack of organizational technology to complete everyday tasks. Organizations stand to achieve substantial returns by enhancing traditional IT service management (ITSM) technologies to empower users with self-service and accelerate ticket resolution with cognitive automation.

Customers want an easily scalable solution to meet the demands of their growing business that would not require a significant investment of time and resources to implement and maintain. Customers also desire a centralized ticketing system, to facilitate prioritizing and routing service requests. Furthermore, the organizations needed a mobile-friendly solution, so end users and service desk agents would not be limited by location in making and resolving requests. Throughout these needs, they want a system that can be embedded with artificial intelligence and automation for maximum impact.

Handling large amounts of service requests has always involved substantial resource challenges including time to investigate and resolve issues due to incomplete information. Driving the necessity for automation.>>
