Given today’s economic climate, businesses are, more than ever, looking to create additional value through the reduction of risk and by saving costs. For many, the economic downturn is seen as the best time to optimise the infrastructure that they already have in place, to look at ways to trim unnecessary expenditure and to use existing resources more effectively. As organisations are increasingly reliant on data networks that encompass an ever-growing range and number of internet protocol (IP) enabled devices and applications, they need to more effectively administer and manage these assets—they can no longer take the management of their IP networks for granted.

The financial services industry deals with a commodity that is primarily electronic — money. Consequently it spends more per employee on IT than any other industry.  Despite this, there is a worrying tendency for information that should be confidential to end up in the public domain.

Technology is no longer a nice to have, or a tool for the few. With many organizations now being completely dependent on their IT systems, the need for the IT department to be seen to be responding to the organization's requirements is of critical importance.  Business Service Management, or BSM, can help in providing underpinnings to the IT function. This paper looks at how the changing processes and market conditions within an organization can be augmented through the use of a Business Service Management (BSM) approach, creating a flexible and responsive technology infrastructure aimed at supporting a rapidly changing commercial landscape and enabling greater competitiveness in the markets.

The need to share information has never been greater as cross-organizational business processes become deeper and more complex.

Companies are faced with increasing pressures on the communications capabilities they offer their employees.  More employees are mobile, working from home or in other remote locations with a growing need to talk and share information with their colleagues.  This cuts across fixed and mobile communications, but businesses still want the flexibility of mobile, and the costs, predictability, quality and service models of fixed.

Unsurprisingly, research shows that the majority of organizations see their future predicated on how well they can innovate. However, just throwing IT technology at issues in the hope that innovation will happen is not viable. Ideas are ephemeral and are easily crushed within the wrong environment. Creating a suitable culture, allied with a well implemented ideas management approach combined with strong leadership, is required.

Across the mid-market, inefficiencies are compounded by the lack of visibility into pertinent data, of processes being adequately and flexibly automated, and for the performance of the business to be monitored on a constant basis. Without such capabilities, businesses will find it difficult to survive the current financial conditions – yet creating an environment where information can be easily aggregated and viewed has never been easier. Also, business performance can be easily monitored with small proactive, and even reactive, actions ensuring effective responses to market forces and enabling organisations to compete with local and more global business threats.
