  • The bullet points speak for themselves, but let me add a little to this slide: With eSupport, it does not matter when your support center is open, as end users can utilize the tools to resolve their own issues Self-healing software can resolve some issues with end users, even if they don’t know something is wrong Analysts can gain information quicker, with more accuracy Minimize the amount of costly technician visits
  • ITIL is a well established, easily accessible, affordable process model for IT service management that is built around a set of best practices. A well-established service and consulting industry has been built around ITIL, especially in Europe. ITIL is better known for its back-office operational process definitions than for its application management processes. ITIL is based on defining best-practice processes for IT service delivery and support , rather than defining a broad-based control framework. ITIL is more-prescriptive about the tasks involved in those processes and, as such, its primary target audience is IT and service management. ITIL's structure enables incremental adoption , which facilitates continuous improvement. ITIL has a much narrower scope than CobiT (Control Objectives for Information and Related Technology), but CobiT and ITIL are not mutually exclusive and can be combined to provide a powerful IT governance, control and best-practice framework in IT service management.
