  • The conversation is remarkably similar with customers when it comes to issues with their current ITSM system. Poor reporting is almost universally an issue for all customers. The words they use to describe their problems include that they are “flying blind” and that the ITSM system is a “black box”. This is typically the result of not being process based. Without a process model to describe the process, it’s hard to generate reporting that matches the actual process that’s being used. With some customers they have to rebuild the reports every time they make a modification to the system.Audit trail is cited as another issue. Many customers have operational risk regulations that require them to prove they have effective processes in place for change management, among other things. Without an explicit audit trail that mirrors the process, preparing and supporting audits can be an extremely time consuming endeavor.Although vague in it’s description, there is almost always an undercurrent of dissatisfaction with existing help desk systems from an ease of use perspective. They were not designed with modern user experience principles in mind.Another big complaint is inflexibility. Traditional systems are hard to modify and / or hard to maintain once modified. Worse, organizations are typically then beholden to specialized, expensive resources to perform further modifications. Large backlogs of requests hamper the organization’s drive toward continuous improvement. Customers typically do not have a single unified platform for managing incidents, problems and changes end to end. This leads to end user confusion about which system to use and also greatly contributes to the reporting and audit trail issues described earlier.
