Gartner created the new IT Service Support Management report after retiring the IT Service Desk Magic Quadrant in 2011. The new ITSSM Magic Quadrant addresses what Gartner considers to be an emerging market for ITSSM tools, which include IT help desk, service desk and comprehensive ITSSM solutions. LANDesk Service Desk enables IT to deliver support services to employees and customers by combining ITIL®-verified, process-driven incident, problem, release, change and configuration management and more in a single touch point. Using LANDesk Service Desk, IT organizations can see benefits such as increased automation of processes, enhanced decision making through better reporting tools, faster incident logging, and reduced costs while still meeting required service levels and more.
“It’s exciting to be recognized in this first-ever IT Service Support Management Tools Magic Quadrant, as our service desk products have enabled significant process and service improvements for our customers’ IT departments,” said Steve Workman, vice president of product management for LANDesk. “As we see the organizations we serve look to IT to provide more business functionality beyond the scope of traditional IT, increased automated processes and comprehensive reporting features available with LANDesk Service Desk have helped to facilitate the shift towards a more productive IT department.”
ITSSM tools such as those identified in the new Magic Quadrant leverage a business view of IT services, enabling the IT support organization to quickly resolve or escalate issues and problems, improve root cause isolation, and provide higher levels of business user satisfaction. Using this business view, IT support organizations manage incidents, problems and service requests throughout their life cycles at a more efficient and effective rate. ITSSM tools also enable organizations to automate the workflow of process frameworks (such as ITIL) specific to IT service support (such as incident, problem, change, release governance and request management).
