Guest on ITSMReview Podcast Episode 10: Self Service & Automation

Listen to our Chief Innovation Officer as he explores Self Service & Automation with key industry figures; Barclay Ray, Doug Tedder, ITSM Consultant at Tedder Consulting LLC  and Eddie Vidal, Manager of the UMIT Service Desk at the University of Miami.

A couple of key messages from the podcast you might be interested in;

  • It is right that we (in IT/business technology) refer to our business colleagues as ‘customers’?  See additional post here on that subject!
  • Service Catalogue Design – this must, must, must use business language – make your self-service portal experience amazing, easy to use and deliver the outcome your business colleagues require – if you don’t know what that means then ask them.
  • Consider getting business colleagues involved in your next ITSM tool selection process, after all when you’ve deployed your self-service portal they’ll be using it as well.

Here’s the podcast:
