ITSM Future readiness survey 2017

Much like any other industry of today, IT service management (ITSM) is an ever-changing and continually-evolving discipline. This makes it challenging to observe and analyze trends, and to understand what the future of ITSM will be like. Add to it the responsibility of consistently providing high-quality services and you’re left with little spare time to focus on anything but your work. For example, have you ever stopped to think about how government regulations like the new Australian immigration policies will affect the recruitment into IT? How will the emerging technologies like Cloud and artificial intelligence change ITSM in the future?

That’s why we at ManageEngine collaborated with to conduct an ITSM future readiness survey 2017, in order to discover what the future holds for ITSM. The survey consisted of 10 questions covering 5 key areas of:

  • Working in IT
  • The impact of politics on IT staffing
  • New technology
  • Best practice, and
  • Meeting service expectations.

 To avoid drifting away on to the usual discussions about workflows, processes, practices, etc. we decided to keep the questions focused on the above five areas. The survey, that garnered responses from more than 300 ITSM professionals, posed questions pertaining to the trends and events that are likely to shape the future of IT and yielded some interesting findings like: 

  • 82 percent of ITSM professionals believe that working in IT will become more challenging.
  • 63 percent of ITSM professionals believe that the existing global political scenario is adversely affecting IT recruitment.
  • Only 08 percent of ITSM professionals formed a negative opinion of the Cloud, based on the widespread outage of February 2017.

The full report analyzes the responses to more questions and attempts to explore what the ITSM of tomorrow will be like, and how it will affect the ITSM professionals. The survey report thus aims to help IT teams in understanding and preparing for, the future challenges and opportunities that await the ITSM industry.

This infographic lists all the data points with brief takeaways to help you gain a quick understanding. However, this is barely scratching the surface as the full survey report analyzes the findings in much greater detail. The report presents a rationale for the existing scenario and future trends and goes on to paint a picture of the future of ITSM that you can use to become future ready.

Government Employee Loan – Brazil

Find out why in Brazil it is much more advantageous to make a payday loan with a monthly discount on your company’s paycheck than to resort to private banks that have interest rates and large financial losses in use.

Loans for public servants of the government, whether federal, state or municipal, have lower interest rates, since there is a presumption that those who work for the government are not fired overnight because of the low risk, companies offer lower interest rates . Another advantage for the creditor institution is that the monthly discount is automatically withdrawn from the employee’s salary, there being no way to “opt” for not paying that month.
