Q&A

Service Desk and Novell

Business and IT its complicated

Overwhelming demand
Unstructured capture of requests and ideas No formal process for prioritization and trade-offs Reactive vs. proactive

IT seen as a Black Box


Business lacks visibility Poor customer satisfaction

Novell, Inc. All rights reserved.

IT needs process to solve the issues

No single system of record for decision making

Relevant metrics hard to obtain

Disparate systems costly to maintain and upgrade

Novell, Inc. All rights reserved.

IT sometimes has a credibility gap

Business leaders demand reliable service with objective, measurable, and genuine value

Some executives feel IT is a wasted investment

Exponential complexity growth

Manage it today, or tomorrow is hopeless

Stronger discipline is needed to manage change and succeed

Discipline and process are keys to success

Novell, Inc. All rights reserved.

How should IT respond?

Need to learn how to speak the language of the business

Has to see itself as part of business


Need to embrace best practices

ITIL is a great example of what businesses are doing to solve this complex issue

Novell, Inc. All rights reserved.

The case for ITIL

The business is more and more dependent on IT to meet their needs


Complexity of IT constantly increases

Customers are demanding more for less, and in many cases with less
Global competitiveness growing at a rapid rate requiring a more flexible approach to integration Stronger focus on controlling the costs of IT Address low customer satisfaction levels

Service Desk and ITIL

ITIL does not say that you must have a Service Desk

In theory you could do ITIL manually with paper and a stop watch

Organizations use Service Desk to automate their ITIL processes

Service Desk becomes the single point of contact between the business and the IT organization

11

Novell, Inc. All rights reserved.

Service Desk benefits

Provide end-users with a unified, single point of contact for dealing with all of their IT service needs
Ensure consistent IT service delivery Decrease incident and problem resolution time via process automation and self-service Improve self-service options so end-users can utilize knowledge management tools to help themselves instead of calling on the help desk Increase end-user satisfaction Leverage out-of-the-box support for IT life-cycle management tools and third-party data sources, enabling IT to integrate automated processes across the entire organization

Why did Novell launch a Service Desk offering?

Upsell revenue into existing ZENworks Configuration Management (ZCM) customers


Integrated ZCM / Novell Service Desk is attractive to existing ZCM customers

Makes things difficult to remove

Service Desk makes ZCM more attractive to legacy ZENworks customers who are considering a migration or replacement strategy Align with market demands for suite solutions

Gartner seeing increase in customer demand for all you can eat suites
