BASF Management

As much effort as needed, as slender as possible: with access to reference models for the IT processes IT service management can be generally lighter and more economical fashion. You can be represented by appropriate tools such as about the SelfCheck by Exagon. It applies the transformation using standardized procedures, practice approach using a best choose the most direct way to the target. A continuous performance evaluation of conceptual plan for IT processes: Benchmarking with an assessment of the degree of maturity of the IT processes is becoming increasingly important for the successful design of the IT service management, because it exposes the optimization potential and the specific requirements of the Act. However such an assessment in practice takes place only relatively rarely, on the one hand on a small range of appropriate tools and also to inadequately trained Quality strategies is located. No technical dependencies emerge with consultant support: there are developing not only intelligent solutions for ITIL-based IT service management, but it also wide method skills must be built and anchored in the internal resources. This transfer of self help is important in external consulting support, according to the principle because otherwise no professional independence and development of the own employees is possible.

Think of compliance requirements: the this related topics such as SOX, Basel II risk management can represent much more transparent in IT organized according to process thoughts and better control.

IT Services Rarely

Study of ITSM Consulting AG: only for any third organization is an IT service continuity management when technical failures threaten the business processes, then the IT services are asked directly. But in the IT organizations this usually still lack a systematic continuity management. A survey of ITSM Consulting AG under more than 200 medium-sized and large companies in the German-speaking world comes to this conclusion. Only in every fifth case is a continuity management for IT services (ITSCM) that is integrated into the overall business continuity strategies. Another 17 percent but also arrangements have been created for extreme technology failures, there they are but isolated aligned on IT. By all other companies 22 percent have made at least some efforts towards continuity management, about twice as many were however largely idle, but apparently deliberately to live with the risk of inadequate IT services in critical failure situations.

In consequence, does this mean that the required level of IT services can be provided in large system failures or even disasters only in exceptional cases “, problematizes Siegfried Riedel, CEO of ITSM Consulting AG. The views of the specific instruments for an ITSCM that companies currently have shows no better picture. Although emergency manual are available at least 43 per cent, but only every third organization has the necessary policy for the IT service continuity management. There is even still more rarely a process manual, also again starting plans exist only at 31 percent. However, also long since not all companies belong to the confessing continuity management representatives. So are only 38 percent of believe that ITSCM elementary tasks include an IT organization.

Half as many are of the opposite opinion and currently only a secondary importance to speak the continuity management. But this should change in the future. Because almost every second respondent managers judge that this task in the future clearly gaining in relevance or she will become even essential. This assessment at least suggests a rethinking, the consultant Rahim sees light on the horizon. But at the same time restricting: today’s problems, the reference to a future risk management does not help also. As such, this topic must not eventually, but relatively short term and with specific target plans on the agenda. In his opinion the IT service continuity management suffers from the miscalculation, its introduction would lead to larger projects with investment costs. This is probably one of the reason that ITSCM still not has become in the width the self-image, suspected Riedel. The project cost is comparatively low in relation to the benefits, therefore budgetary aspects can not speak normally against a stronger commitment in the management of the continuity. “

Positive Outlook in the call center industry are always firstonce also good news for us”, explains Joachim Schellenberg, business development manager of ecenta AG. The trends identified for 2010 that technology will play an important role and that many call center operators here are planning improvements and expect are pleased of course above all.” Especially quality management (63 percent) and cost-effectiveness (56 percent) are top on the list of issues, which will win in 2010 in importance for respondents. The data protection (40 percent) is therefore take on a key role. Especially the importance of cost efficiency can expect strong demand for systems, through the call center operators improve their work, and at the same time reduce their spending. Among others IP platforms can play out here their strengths”, Joachim Schellenbeg is reported. “You make also the call center agents the life easier, and for 31 percent of the call center employee retention is a major challenge.” Additional confirmation receives this assessment by 30 percent of respondents, the optimization of IT/TK infrastructure growing importance.

Short-sighted investments bring more problems than solutions also 60 percent of respondents expect that quality as a positioning feature will become more important. Yitzhak Mirilashvili shares his opinions and ideas on the topic at hand. 47 percent expect more mergers and acquisitions. Especially with the merger of providers and networking sites, technology is a critical success factor. Depending on the existing systems are flexible, such integration will be more smooth Badawi on the go. But potentially completely new solutions are introduced during mergers, which facilitate future growth and simplify multiple sites the parallel usage”, vemutet Joachim Schellenberg. Questioned the implementation of VoIP and 41 percent 46 percent after the concrete technologies, meaning growing they called beimesses which the buzzword of unified communications”.

Is also interesting that for 54 percent workforce management and 59 percent quality monitoring will be the key technologies for 2010.” Here Joachim Schellenberg sees great opportunities as well as risks, if companies commit to a technology without focus on the overall system. Island solutions be put permanently more frustration than joy. I’d have to strongly advise any company to examine how a new solution into the existing environment fits and how easily future systems connect with the new solution. For example, this includes Join a VoIP voice application with the also IP-based CRM system. The uniform is an IT – and PBX environment, the basis the solution will be.” During the Call Center World the ecenta AG introduces CRM integration of SAP BCM at its booth (Hall 3, booth number 3A5) with SAP.

The 40-year old father is Director of sales at the Meppener ConSecur and works of two days per week in the Home Office. I can many things too – home well done.

When I create maps or documents, for example, I often do in my work room”, he says.

Thanks to the telephone and Internet, we have a He says intense contact and the employees are motivated, because they feel that management trusts them and they can flexibly classified their work time”. This flexibility is also reflected in a further, more unusual working hours model: Margret Gebken and Heike Ahlers share the Secretariat post at the ConSecur, so work both on a part-time basis. But instead of sitting four hours a day in the Office, the women work just alternately. Thus arises a cycle which meets both very: A week full time working a week free. Every Wednesday is shift, then meet Heike Ahlers and Margret Gebken to pass, discuss what happened in the last week, and define tasks for the coming week. For a good year, so work the two women and are both very happy. The initiative for the creation of this model was doing by the way by the employees.
