As you evaluate Service Desk and Asset Management solutions in the marketplace, you likely have a set of requirements for features and functionality. But have you considered other key factors that will set you up for success with a cloud-based ITSM solution that might not be so obvious? Not evaluating solutions based on these considerations can delay implementation, driving up costs and causing undue stress for the IT professional. Don’t let them stop you in your tracks; instead, consider these criteria when making your solution decision and to gain greater organizational acceptance.
Some would have you believe that ITIL® is on its way out. That it’s no longer relevant in
today’s fast-paced digital environment.
But ITIL still holds many timeless truths. As a set of best practice recommendations, ITIL
provides a solid foundation and a common language for IT service management (ITSM)
in these rapidly changing times.
The problems arise when ITIL is seen as dogma. If you apply it too literally—as rules to
follow, instead of recommendations to consider—ITIL will slow you down. You’re left
struggling to keep up with ever-increasing user demands, not to mention your enterprise’s
need to modernize and digitally transform.
If you suspect ITIL is slowing you down, read on to uncover the seven ways ITIL has
commonly been misapplied—and gain guidance on how you can go faster, while still
upholding ITIL principles.
Composite applications can provide multiple benefits, such as business agility, better utilization of business software assets through code reuse, development efficiencies, and cost optimization. Once companies are skilled at deploying them, many find that they roll out new applications and integrations faster, while maximizing the value of "tried and true" software components.
Since the term was first coined in 2009, “DevOps” has rapidly taken the world by storm. And while the DevOps
movement initially took root among and the view that it will be replaced with a new trend, the last few years

A recent survey of CIOs found that over 75% want to develop an overall information strategy in the next three years, yet over 85% are not close to implementing an enterprise-wide content management strategy. Meanwhile, data runs rampant, slows systems, and impacts performance. Hard-copy documents multiply, become damaged, or simply disappear.
ASG's Business Service Portfolio (BSP) Virtualization Management provides comprehensive oversight, inspections, discoveries, warnings, diagnostics, and reporting for the critical technology and administrative disciplines involved in virtual workload management. This is all done in parallel with physical systems management.
Application management requires visibility from multiple vantage points within the IT enterprise, combined with a centralized information store that pulls the technology pieces of the application puzzle into a coherent whole.
Data centers are large, important investments that, when properly designed, built, and operated, are an integral part of the business strategy driving the success of any enterprise. Yet the central focus of organizations is often the acquisition and deployment of the IT architecture equipment and systems with little thought given to the structure and space in which it is to be housed, serviced, and maintained. This invariably leads to facility infrastructure problems such as thermal “hot spots”, lack of UPS (uninterruptible power supply) rack power, lack of redundancy, system overloading and other issues that threaten or prevent the realization of the return on the investment in the IT systems.

Virtualization is now mainstream. Enterprises continue to heavily invest in virtualization projects and while short term hardware and cost saving benefits are being achieved, few enterprises achieve anywhere close to the full potential of virtualization as they struggle with new problems like assuring performance and availability, preventing VM sprawl, and maximizing resource utilization

Decision makers at many organizations question the investments made in IT. This is often because they don’t fully understand the value delivered by IT service management (ITSM) or by compliance with recommended best practices such as those defined by the IT Infrastructure Library or ITIL®. This often pressures CIOs to demonstrate the value of IT to the business. Learn how creating a great service catalog can help alleviate these pressures and why many consider it to be fundamental to any IT improvement initiative.
An effective service catalog enables IT to deliver business services that are more customer and service focused, which results in higher customer satisfaction, provides standardization and consistency and increases IT visibility across the organization.
Effective workload automation that provides complete management level visibility into real-time events impacting the delivery of IT services is needed by the data center more than ever before. The traditional job scheduling approach, with an uncoordinated set of tools that often requires reactive manual intervention to minimize service disruptions, is failing more than ever due to todays complex world of IT with its multiple platforms, applications and virtualized resources.
Each year, a total of 180,000 IT service tickets are created and processed. These include requests and incidents of all kinds, such as the provision of the flight information displays, an employee request for a laptop, through to IT equipment for an airline customer.
