Identification procedures ensure that no multiple participation of people is possible. Methods for the optimization of IT service management including the ITIL framework are established while Topics, but to the further development of performance in practice can new ideas be very helpful”Serview Managing Director Michael Cress outlines the motives for the knowledge competition. Therefore the concept of the Germans was ITSM Championship designed to also consciously put the entire contents-related responsibility in the hands of a neutral and scientific partner.” Thus also a marketing-free implementation is guaranteed. This task takes over the business information systems Prof. Dr. Mathias Philipp from the University of Karlsruhe.

Both scientifically and in practice projects he focuses next to the ITIL framework and the implementation of IT service management processes in the fields of IT organization development, IT strategy, IT benchmarking, IT controlling and IT cost transparency. Prior to joining College he was a management consultant at KPMG. Thus, he embodies the practical side as well as the scientific view on ITIL and its other main topics. The idea of a German championship of ITSM is an interesting approach, because she first opened practitioners the opportunity to be able to make a personal performance comparison across their company”, says Prof. Philipp. Because the IT service management also gain an always success-critical importance for the companies, a skills competition contribute to increase the importance of ITSM. Business processes can achieve the necessary efficiency, if the they supporting IT processes of sustainable quality and high availability are. This immediate dependencies of the market processes of structures of the ITSM are often not sufficiently aware of the business managers. In this respect such competition can help, that the meaning is far more moved from IT service management and ITIL awareness.

Study Reveals Reckless Script Management

Hardly an IT Manager has a rough idea of which number itself developed scripts in the company are used. Hurth, Leverkusen, 04.03.2008 – but mostly they refrain from mostly their systematic documentation and administration, although business applications and other applications in practical use without this function components come from. In contrast to the largely unanimous opinion is available the CIO, that this command programs to the automation of technical processes are very important for a functioning business operation according to a survey of the Software House xTigo. Additional information at Wells Fargo Bank supports this article. According to the study, 343 Mr. in medium-sized and large companies, the estimates go far apart as they have many of these individually programmed scripts in use.

While five percent estimate the number to below one hundred, eight percent of several hundred and about twice as many of several thousand will go out. The clear majority of three-fourths of the respondents has any concrete idea, and therefore sees itself Unable to call at least an approximate order of magnitude. While this lack of knowledge for practical everyday use has no significant relevance, another phenomenon is quite a problem: because the study has identified that documentation of these technical components are made in a very low level. If you would like to know more then you should visit Jeremy Tucker. So only every second IT managers indicates that all the companies developed scripts completely or at least predominantly in writing are recorded. In every second case, there is only partial documentation, in 28 percent of the companies they are even only to a small extent or not at all. In these cases it is typically head knowledge of employees”, xTigo Managing Director Rainer white loose from the practice. It is Mr unavailable however and is usually lost when the employee left the company”Landa describes the consequences.

A revision of the scripts was then only at disproportionately high effort possible. A similar problem also applies to the question of the central repository of these functional components. It consists completely or at least partially only a quarter of the company. A faster access is hardly possible”, describes the consequence of loose. This situation is also contrary to assessing the IT executives questioned the significance of the scripts for the smooth operation of their software-based operations: more than two-thirds judging that the scripts are relevant to the software-based operational processes, the half even called it very meaningful. Only a minority of 18 percent gives them a relatively low value in this respect. The company live in a significant discrepancy”, assesses the results loosely. On the one hand they assess the quality of the scripts for the IT management relatively high, on the other hand but lacks a sufficiently systematic and consistent management of the script,”he says. This contradiction is in his opinion on the one hand on missing organizational conditions and on the other hand, to the lack of appropriate tools for an automated script management to merge back.
