Take Your ITSM Strategy to the Stratosphere

In the age of self-provisioning, some CIOs may wonder whether their role is about to go the way of the dinosaur. But the CIOs and experts we spoke to for this SearchCIO handbook on IT service management delivery say otherwise -- in fact, they argue, the movement toward self-service IT makes the CIO more relevant than ever. In our first piece, SearchCIO Executive Editor Linda Tucci speaks to professionals steeped in IT service management and delivery and concludes that, if your ITSM strategy isn't making money for the business, then it’s time to go back to the drawing board. In our second piece, expert Harvey Koeppel illustrates the exponential effect that a flood of new tools is having upon IT service management and delivery. In our third piece, CIO Niel Nickolaisen explains why CIOs are in prime position to deliver on the IT service levels that today's hybridized user-consumers expect.
