  1. Introduce a self-service portal with Knowledge Centered Service
  2. Rely on ITIL for better incident and problem management
  3. Adopt a strong change management policy
  4. Integrate service and projects to one platform
  5. Leverage one solution across the entire enterprise

TeamDynamix, which is known for its unique single-platform approach for service and project portfolio management has particular expertise in helping companies and organizations in healthcare, government, and education migrate to self-service portals. Andrew Graf, TeamDynamix’s chief product strategist stated in the HIMSS report, “Unless ITSM groups fundamentally change, they’re not going to have the resources available to them to actually deliver service in a fashion that drives satisfaction and results. Any ITSM department that is experiencing pain needs to first identify what the source of the pain is and then pick the right processes and tools to address these challenges. Sometimes the source is not obvious.”
