Rapid technological advancements, growing competition and increased customer expectations have made a marketer’s job tougher than ever before. ITIL, the most widely accepted approach to IT service management, helps organizations use IT to realize business transformation and growth. Incident management is closely tied to other service management processes including problem and change management. Automating incident and problem management workflows can improve resolution times and prevent future incidents. Change management is the process designed to understand and minimize risks while making IT changes.
Service assets consist of utility and warranty. Utility is the service itself, provided by a combination of people, processes, and technology. Warranty is the assurance that the utility will perform to an expected level. With insight into the business impact of services, you can weight the value of service assets based on their business impact. As a result, they help you prioritize actions and make other important decisions based on the weighted business value of the service assets involved.
Most modern business theorists see a continuum with pure service on one terminal point and pure commodity good on the other terminal point. 2 Most products fall between these two extremes. For example, a restaurant provides a physical good (the food ), but also provides services in the form of ambience, the setting and clearing of the table, etc. And although some utilities actually deliver physical goods â€” like water utilities which actually deliver water â€” utilities are usually treated as services.
