Grant Glading, vice president of sales and marketing at Interlink Software explained: "We are delighted to sponsor the Aberdeen ITSM report because it addresses the Interlink Software mantra of aligning IT with the business. We feel Aberdeen's benchmark report validates our ITIL best practice-based approach to delivering Business Service Management, Service Level Management (SLM) and Configuration Management Database (CMDB) solutions.” Aberdeen Group, a Harte-Hanks Company (NYSE:HHS), provides factual research examining measurable results delivered across the global business IT market by industry sector, company size, and geography, as well as by business process and technology. Aberdeen’s research educates technology buyers with greater market awareness while providing the facts they need to make accurate business and technology decisions. ‘ITSM: IT Transforms Itself into a Service’ looks closely at the adoption level of certain capabilities IT organisations already possess or plan to develop in order to support their ITSM strategies, and examines the technological tools they use to facilitate those strategies. Ralph A. Rodriguez, senior vice president and research director of the Technology Markets Group at Aberdeen adds: “In order for any ITSM solution to provide business benefit, it must allow companies to change the ways in which they do business so they are more competitive, reduce risk, increase revenue, decrease cost, or in some way recognise tangible business advantages such as increased customer service capability.” As a result of its research, Aberdeen recommends that enterprises should: Adopt an adequate ITIL framework to help improve process alignment between IT and business units Develop a firm vision and strategy for ITSM that is directly tied to business strategy Adopt an ‘ITSM Program’ approach to implementing ITSM Approach ITSM implementation as a business transformation as opposed to a technology installation Enable the ITSM implementation with knowledge sharing and collaboration capabilities Download your complimentary copy of this report today: www.aberdeen.com/link/sponsor.asp?spid=30410903&cid=4313 About Interlink Software Founded in 1996, Interlink Software is an Independent Software Vendor (ISV) fully owned by its founders and employees currently self-financing its growth with the proceeds from its operations.
