Service Management: Leveraging ITIL for Delivery of IT as a Service

LONDON, Feb. 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportbuyer.com just published a new market research report:

Service Management: Leveraging ITIL for Delivery of IT as a Service

This IDC study explores essential considerations in transforming traditional IT service management (ITSM) into IT as a service (ITaaS), the conceptual delivery model whose purpose is to better facilitate business outcomes that the IT customer wants. IDC believes that ITaaS is a timely and necessary model for managing, controlling, and securing the future IT environment. By itself, ITaaS doesn't resolve the lack of a business orientation within IT. However, ITaaS does enable the end user (business entity) to obtain IT services from multiple non-enterprise sources and can be effective in delivering the desired business outcomes. Effective ITaaS mandates the "service" orientation of ITSM, which IT organizations are still struggling to effectively adopt.

Within any IT organization, and especially ITaaS providers, there is an ongoing need for processes associated with software release, problem resolution, change, service catalog, and other IT best practices that are effective and efficient. In the past 15-20 years, IT practitioners have come to recognize the contribution of "process" in maturing their IT operations. Value can exist for any IT service provider within ITIL's documentation of standardized practices for the IT service life cycle. This study is intended for IT executives who struggle with the appropriate long-term role of ITIL in the promised delivery of effective business-oriented IT services and provides insight into ITIL's legitimate contribution to efficient and effective IT as a service.

"IT organizations seeking to deliver ITaaS need to stop promoting their processes and ITIL compliancy and begin marketing the availability, consistency, and pricing of competitive IT services within their service catalog that are based on business outcomes for their customers," says Bill Keyworth, adjunct analyst with IDC's Research Network. "ITIL can greatly assist in this transformation."

In most cases, it is convenient to have some human interaction with a web (micro-)service, no matter how small it is. A traditional approach would be to create an HTTP interface, where user requests will be dispatched and HTML/CSS pages must be served. This approach is indeed very traditional for a web site, but not really convenient for a web service, which is not intended to be good looking, 24x7 up and running and UX-optimized. Instead, talking to a web service in a chat-bot mode would be muc...
It's easy to assume that your app will run on a fast and reliable network. The reality for your app's users, though, is often a slow, unreliable network with spotty coverage. What happens when the network doesn't work, or when the device is in airplane mode? You get unhappy, frustrated users. An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection.
With an estimated 50 billion devices connected to the Internet by 2020, several industries will begin to expand their capabilities for retaining end point data at the edge to better utilize the range of data types and sheer volume of M2M data generated by the Internet of Things.

Cognitive Computing is becoming the foundation for a new generation of solutions that have the potential to transform business. Unlike traditional approaches to building solutions, a cognitive computing approach allows the data to help determine the way applications are designed. This contrasts with conventional software development that begins with defining logic based on the current way a business operates. In her session at 18th Cloud Expo, Judith S. Hurwitz, President and CEO of Hurwitz & ...
More and more companies are looking to microservices as an architectural pattern for breaking apart applications into more manageable pieces so that agile teams can deliver new features quicker and more effectively. What this pattern has done more than anything to date is spark organizational transformations, setting the foundation for future application development. In practice, however, there are a number of considerations to make that go beyond simply “build, ship, and run,” which changes ho...

As someone who has been dedicated to automation and Application Release Automation (ARA) technology for almost six years now, one of the most common questions I get asked regards Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS). Specifically, people want to know whether release automation is still needed when a PaaS is in place, and why. Isn't that what a PaaS provides? A solution to the deployment and runtime challenges of an application? Why would anyone using a PaaS then need an automation engine with workflow ...
