ITSM

As state and local governments look to modernize aging IT infrastructure and offer more self-service to residents in this digital age, it’s becoming clear that successful digital transformations rely on a solid IT Service Management (ITSM) foundation – a foundation that will form the backbone for a broader use of service management best practices. The combination of a clear ITIL framework and a flexible, no code, easy-to-use ITSM platform is essential for any organization striving to meet the needs of its end-users with both limited budgets and resources.

State and local governments (SLGs) are taking a page from Federal Cloud First and Cloud Smart modernization initiatives to sunset legacy systems and migrate to the cloud. Modernization efforts have been a top priority for over a decade, with cloud first appearing on NASCIO’s State CIO Top Ten priorities list in 2010 and making the list ever since.

And while both self-service and KCS are sound tools for ITSM, there are other strategies you should consider adding to build out a true 360 platform.

Without the right IT service desk technology, manual processing can bog down your resources and cause unnecessary waits for those needing help.

In this article, we will discuss three challenges faced by the IT service desk and how you can overcome them.
