Drive Service Management Adjustments With Peer Comparisons
May 16, 2012
Why Read This Report
This report outlines Forrester's solution to benchmark your service management and automation (SMA) initiative. To understand the current state and future of SMA, Forrester partnered with the USA chapter of the IT Service Management Forum (itSMF) in 2011 to survey 491 service management professionals — a critical subset of the broader IT infrastructure and operations (I&O) role most commonly tasked with planning and implementing SMA initiatives. While the IT infrastructure library (ITIL) is necessary but not sufficient to a successful service management and automation (SMA) program, its rising adoption is an indicator of priority and future maturity. Likewise, the benefits from ITIL adoption are a good indicator of the overall value your organization will receive from a broader SMA program. I&O leaders and their teams should use this report to adjust strategy plans and the subsequent investments in their people, processes, and technology.
