Session Objective And Takeaway
Session Objective:
 Discuss
how a service-based approach
to IT along with System Center 2012
technology—and specifically Service
Manager—can provide more agile,
cost-effective, and efficient IT Service
Management that drives automation,
standardization, and accelerates
functions beyond the existing legacy
tools
Key Takeaway:
 System
Center Service Manager is
built upon IT Service Management
proven practices, and through an
approach of process and technology
can allow IT organizations to better
manage the operational
environment
What is all the
fuss about
“IT Service
Management”?
Is technology the cause of downtime?
Research tells us that 80% of IT failures are
related to people and process issues.
Process
People
Technology
Gartner Security Conference presentation "Operation Zero Downtime," D. Scott
Only the remaining 20% can be
attributed to technology failures
Gartner Group
Research

More than 300 self-assessments have
been completed in Gartner's ITScore for
I&O.

Key Findings…
Source: Infrastructure
& Operations Maturity:
How Do You
Compare?
The assessment results indicate that, overall,
infrastructure and operations (I&O) maturity
has not appreciably improved. IT I&O, as a
discipline, remains relatively immature: The
average maturity is 2.35 (the highest score
achievable is 5.0).
Published: 13 March
2012 ID:G00219151
Of the four dimensions of I&O, process
management remains substantially less
mature than the other three (people,
technology and business management).
