Global Business Services

Business ServiceWhether serving public sector organisations, owner managed businesses, private individuals or listed companies with overseas operations, our goal is to help our clients achieve their ambitions. A typical organization has hundreds of business services. Mapping each of them individually can be time and effort consuming. With Service Mapping, you can map most business services in bulk. Mapping multiple business services at once is very effective, but is not precise. You may need to individually map business services omitted during bulk mapping.

A simple way to think about the power of service models in relation to rapid problem isolation is that they reduce mean-time-to-know to zero. No more need for accusations flying in hastily arranged war-room meetings. With an accurate and always up-to-date service model, it is easy for an operations manager to assign work by service criticality – or, perhaps according to the service bringing in the most revenue.

Next, defining the business service requires mapping, which involves building the associations for an application and the underlying components supporting that application. The mapping process results in an illustration which shows the connections between the application and the components including switches, routers, database servers, web servers, application servers, etc.

A complexity driver is the individual tailored business service. Although the importance of business services has been noticed, the majority of purchasing managers still struggle with a consistent procurement of services in comparison to goods purchasing.

The benefits of adopting a BSM approach will vary for different organisations, but typically include improved relationships with customers, suppliers and colleagues; service quality improvements; cost reductions through improved efficiency; and a reduction in service outages and the impact of outage.
