Plan-Net has issued a new white paper that guides IT professionals through the essential steps needed to perform a Service Transition with successful results.
Whether the IT Support model is to be transitioned from in-house to Co-Sourced, Co-Sourced to fully Outsourced or in-house to Outsourced, this white paper outlines each important stage of the process, whilst also providing the reader with some tips and further insights into the matter.
This white paper, written by Pete Canavan, Head of Support Services, was conceived to help with the growing need for organisations to change the way they manage their IT department in order to achieve greater cost-efficiency. The IT Service Desk is nowadays the backbone of most organisations; for it to not only support the business, but create value and actually improve the way work is carried out, the service needs to be efficient, well-managed and up-to-date with the latest innovations.
This is why sometimes it may be more convenient for an organisation to seek external help. It is common practice for many organisations to have some Co-Sourced staff to cover for absences or sudden increases in workload. Moreover, an increasing number of companies even decide to leave the Service Desk completely in the hands of the experts and have it managed by a service provider.
The white paper contains details of five key Service Transition phases:
- Scope definition
- Future state model identification
- Roadmap and Service Design
- Service Transition phase
- Live service and Continual Service Improvement
It also contains highlights on:
- Knowledge management
- Soft skills
- Dos and Don’ts
