  • Let’s start with a very simple definition of Service Value Management. SVM encompasses all the key components of designing a proper service value strategy by: Delivering value driven business services through operational efficiency, service optimization, and “market time” agility. IT organizations must be able to respond to: Changing market dynamics that drive business priorities like the credit crunch and how the business operates Changing market conditions that drive business reactions like the need to adhere to a new regulation Changing market technology that drive business innovation like adopting a SOA architecture, Virtualization, Web 2.0 internally or externally in services Changing service lifecycles that drive business process like the change of a service from being competitive advantage to mainstream and managing for cost Business driven Technology (business should drive the technology organization) and Technology powered Business (technology is the electricity that powers the business)
