ITSM – IT service management is the activities that are performed by an organization to design, plan, deliver, operate and control information technology services offered to customers. – Wikipedia

ITSM from the outset can seem like a messy, complicated process, and it can be if not executed properly. However properly aligning and upgrading your ITSM process is made easier with the guidance of Windward’s team and ServiceNow, the world’s most popular IT Service Management platform.

The needs of IT support teams have become increasingly complex as new channels for requests are required by the business. IT teams are dealing with support tickets coming from email, Slack, chat and intranets every day. Further, the amount of repetitive requests for items like password resets, software upgrades and hardware requests continue to bog IT teams down and keep them from focusing on innovation. The most effective IT support teams are leveraging ITSM best practices to begin to automate repetitive tasks, quickly identify solutions to outages, and reduce the noise and complexity within their IT operations practice. Windward’s team of experts helps IT teams select the best technology for their needs, deploy the solution, integrate it with their other technology platforms and even provides end to end platform management services for clients who do not have the technical expertise required in-house. As such, we have supported dozens of clients through deployment and value realization of ServiceNow. Here’s why it may be a good choice for you.
