SAN MATEO, CA, USA – September 22, 2008 – Digital Fuel®, the leader in IT Service Management (ITSM), today launched their Pre-Defined Service Level Management solution for Service Desks. The hosted, fully managed solution provides a complete out of the box SLM solution for Service Desks that contains pre-defined reports, dashboards, service level objectives (SLOs), data interfaces and best practices for running IT services in a customer-centric way. With Digital Fuel’s new SLM offering, enterprises and service providers can immediately manage service desk performance by leveraging their existing investments in Service Desks from BMC, CA, HP, IBM and many others to achieve a new level of control over how well they are delivering services to their customers. For the first time, Service Desks have an automated business application that can immediately measure and assess service performance across their entire customer base. The net result is better services at a lower cost, while increasing service operation efficiency.
“Service Desks are on the front lines of IT service delivery,” said Yisrael Dancziger, CEO of Digital Fuel. “Today they use powerful solutions to manage incidents and problems, but have no way to respond to business services’ customer demands and expectations, and manage service levels to deliver real business value. Our new pre-defined SLM for Service Desks solution helps our customers do exactly that, faster and with much less hassle, extending the power of existing investments and delivering instant value out of the box.”
"The full power of the ITIL process model is only achieved when processes extend out from the Service Desk and integrate with the operations side of IT," states Forrester Research principal analyst Peter O’Neill in the Forrester Research report entitled "The Service Desk Software Market," July 2007.
SLM provides an application necessary to augment Service Desks and realize ITIL v3 benefits. The Digital Fuel Pre-defined SLM solution for Service Desks delivers important ITSM business value and expands on Digital Fuel’s offering as highlighted by Peter O’Neill in the Forrester Report titled "Digital Fuel Technologies Offers Service-Level Management At Its Finest for BSM" (Forrester Research, March 2007).
