ITSM Tools

ITSM Tools

Technology is an essential component of every business, and business-IT alignment is more necessary than ever to be successful. IT Managers must extract real business value from technology. IT Service Management (ITSM) tools assist all the activities involved in designing, creating, delivering, supporting, and managing the lifecycle of IT service. This includes all the discrete activities and processes that support a service, from service management to change management, problem and incident management, asset management, and knowledge management. ITSM tracks all corporate IT assets and their configuration centralized within a Configuration Management Database (CMDB).


The primary goal of ITSM is to better align IT with the business throughout the product or service delivery lifecycle. ITSM standardizes IT procedures, improves workflow efficiency, enhances customer experience, and saves time and money. If you are looking for an ITSM tool that provides fast return-on-investment, consider the following vendors.
