  • Summary of key areas / stages of lifecycleService Strategy: Why? Who are the customers (current & potential)? What are we offering? What the services? Guidance how to analyse markets (e.g public sector) where we operate. What differentiates us from others? E.g. “Kaseya is different by our focus on Automation, if we lose this focus, we may lose the edge in the MS space”. (Or think e.g. “Our key differentiator can be the quality of our support; if QoS degrades, we lose out”). Guidance on costs & risks: If we don’t expand our offerings (e.g. new SD module), then our competitors will. But there’s a cost and a risk associated. Is it worth doing it? Service Strategy analyses all this. Service Design: Opp for techs to realise a Service is not just tools. The idea is to design the service that was decided in Strategy. How to manage it, how to measure it, meets value proposition?Service Level Mgmt: Negotiating support arrangements, monitoring service, meeting those targets. ITIL concepts of Utility (what the customer gets) AND Warranty (how well it is delivered). Usually when you describe a SLA, you describe Availability (e.g. 99.997%, or if we call SD, we will respond in 4 hours & fix in 24 hours), Capacity (Svc can support normally 200 users, max 500, otherwise upgrade), Performance (e.g. transaction times), Continuity (time to recover), and Security (e.g. is it pwd protected?). All these targets are at core of SLA. Value is created if Utility (performance supported OR Constrains removed) AND Warranty (Availability, Capacity, Continuity AND Security) Design: Guidance on Supplier Mgmt, ensure value for moneyService Catalog Mgmt: Ensuring you have a catalog of the services (e.g. a website listing them, with cost, service arrangements, summary of expectations, dependencies with other services, etc) and that this info is correct at all times, and visible only to customers you want to make it visible to.Transition: Biggest risk to a live environment comes from … change. In ST, we Build, Test & Release the Service.Change Mgmt: Change, release & deploy. Validation & testing. Configuration mgmt.Knowledge Mgmt: when we go live, it is critical we transfer knowledge to operations (Knowledge Base - KB)Operations: That’s where the customers will see the value of the Service. Event mgmt: How we detect anything that happens, any event relevant to mgmt of svc (disk reaches certain threshold, or if there’s flooding in Bangalore, this might be relevant to our Service as this is where our 1st line support is). What to do? Requirement for event mgmt tools (i.e. Kaseya). Need to know if something fails. Makes customers realise the value of our product. Need to understand language: incident, problem, change request. Incident: Indicates an Outage or potential outage of Service.Problem: The unknown underlining cause of problems. Goal of problem mgmt: reduce incidents by eliminating underlining causes. ServiceRequest: Just for minor changes, requests for info, etc (e.g. move my PC, new user starting, etc)Access Mgmt: Granting/revoking rights to service. Identity Mgmt.Continual Service Improvement (CSI): The whole philosophy is underpinned by continual improvement. Continual(Review and Re-implement regularly, but in steps) vsContinuous (Constantly changing) Strong emphasis on measuring. What to measure? Processes, Svc & Components (whatever helps deliver the svc). If I have effective measurement in place, I should be able to tell how anything relates to a strategic goal (e.g. you monitor such & such health indicators on a server because that server is used to deliver one of our core services. Why us? Because we have high availabilityBottom line: everything we do is supposed to make sense. CSI is what measures the 4 other components in the lifecycle and tries to improve them. Also how to improve the improvement…
