What is Service Management?

Service management is a customer-focused approach to information technology that aims to provide value to the customer while developing customer relationships. It provides a framework to structure IT-related interactions between clients and technical personnel. A service, in this context, refers to a means of enabling value co-creation by facilitating the outcomes customers are looking to achieve without the customer having to manage costs and risks. Generally, service members of an IT team include business, technical operations, and service owners.

Services must constantly evolve to meet changing customer needs affected by technological advancements. Rather than a software or tangible product, service management is a managerial discipline that can be beneficial to virtually any organization that uses technology. It refers to all the activities involved in creating, delivering, supporting, and managing the lifecycle of IT services.
