Benefits and Features of ITSM as a Single Solution Offering An IT Service Management (ITSM) Studio ideally offers a workflow based configurable global platform for implementing ITSM processes distributed over multiple geographic locations and across multiple organizations, accessed 24x7 over the Web. ITSM is available as both On-Premise and Software as a Service (SaaS) offering. Some salient features of a successful ITSM are Customizable Workspace: The workspace is available with industry-standard components of ITSM and are defined with a set of standard attributes (ITIL v3 compliant), which a user can change as per his/her business needs. Process Automation: Processes are managed by the built-in process automation workflow engine. The workflow of all transactional entities-Service Request, Incident, Problem and Change- are automated and task-based, eliminating the risk of human error associated with manual intervention. End-to-End Traceability: Traceability is an advanced ITSM feature that allows a user to manage functional dependencies between Service Requests, Incidents, Problems and Change Management, or a combination of these. Incident becomes easier by setting a traceability relation between transactional components. Automated Business Rules: Policy refers to 'business rule' that executes certain actions based on an occurrence of a particular event, schedule, escalation parameters or validation of an event. With the help of enterprise service bus architecture ITSM Studio can provides the facility to implement service-oriented business rules in terms of Policies. Multiple Input Methods: Any item such as Service Request, Incident or Change Request can be captured using rich text editor, submitting through a corporate website or portal, sending via email, importing from MS Word, MS Excel and configurable CSV file, and by using any third party tools in real time if synchronized. Consolidated Reports: Graphical and non-graphical reports help Service Managers evaluate the quality of service operation, service delivery and distribution of IT assets/Configuration Items among the customers. An ITSM Studio generally allows for the creation of a wide array of reports that can be created separately for each ITSM component. Getting these real time reports with an accurate data helps make faster decisions.


Dashboards: ITSM provides ready-to-use Dashboard Reports exposed through different gadgets. Viewing all reports from one place helps the manager do less navigation in the solution and make quick decisions on service operations and service delivery.
