IT Operating Model Optimization

IT Operating Model Optimization.

Empowered Service Strategy, Customer Focused, Optimized Service Execution.

To support internal or external facing customers, executing an effective IT Service Management (ITSM) program is critical to support complex, day-to-day business operations when aligned with an organization’s strategy.  We partner with our clients to analyze business performance to provide quality IT services through the appropriate mix of people, processes and technology, enabling stakeholders to achieve organizational goals, generate value through increased productivity and minimize costs.  We optimize IT service processes around multiple ITSM frameworks and industry trends to ensure end-user service effectiveness and process efficiency is maximized from the insight out.

 

IT Service Strategy and Design

The creation of value with IT Service Management starts with the development and planning of a strategy empowering governance generated from business cases prior to design of IT services.  With increasing demand for the use of mobile and web applications, as well as DevOps and Agile methodologies, we work with our clients to ensure customer requirements and the overall business strategy are aligned with the creation of the service strategy.

 

Using a coordinated mix of people, processes and technology required to define performance metrics, we enforce a design strategy that quantifies increased service value across an IT service catalog.  To ensure both employee and customer experiences are optimized, the service design phase engages all stakeholders maximizing service delivery value while minimizing risk and costs.

IT Service Transition & Operation

Deploying a designed IT service into a production environment requires detailed transition steps to ensure the services designed are fully planned, tested and evaluated prior to release.  We partner with our clients to confirm these phases are properly designed in place for a successful service implementation. 

 

To capture support levels within an SLA defining performance parameters, we collaborate with IT service business units to define a balanced approach to execute quality service within cost, enable stability and responsiveness as well as drive services while minimizing operational costs and risks.

Continual Service Improvement

Implementing IT service operations does not stop once the service itself is in place.  We team with our clients through establishing critical success factors to utilize an improvement methodology such as Deming’s Plan-Do-Check-Act model.  Opportunities captured are compared against business metrics such as overall service costs to determine return on investment and total cost ownership.
