Time to take charge
ITIL is the “most widely adopted approach for IT Service Management in the world. It provides a practical, no-nonsense framework for identifying, planning, delivering and supporting services to the business”. Read more about ITIL on the official site.

Common ITIL Processes
Incident Management follows a standardized process in line with the ITIL Framework to allow Service Desks to handle all incidents and ensure they are treated in a defined and repeatable manner; this could be a simple ticketing system to a worldwide ticket management system. The benefit of Incident Management is that it quickly builds up a wealth of knowledge of previous incidents. This can lead to some of the benefits shown in the diagram below:

To further enhance your Incident Management process, the AlfaPeople ITSM solution provides Service Level Agreements to compliment Incident Management. This allows you to report on how well you are performing against your service targets.
The consensus in Change Management is that the majority of incidents are commonly caused directly or in-directly by a change. The AlfaPeople ITSM solution provides a predefined approach to implementing changes. This provides the means to enable and enforce management of the change and also provide accountability throughout the lifecycle of the change. We can set-up a way of working that allows for various aspects of the change to be considered including cost, impact and the benefits of the change.

The AlfaPeople ITSM solution will allow you to standardize regular requests so they are dealt with in a repeatable and automated manner. Our self-service portal allows for a managed end to end process providing automation before the request is received by the Service Desk.
This can be customized to keep in-line with your business needs. Our adaptive solution contributes to keeping costs down in the long term and provides you with more efficiently run operations.
