There’s a lot of discussion and industry activity around SIAM (Service Integration and Management) right now. Whilst we might wonder if this is another passing phase, the concept has been around for a while and there is growing consensus and interest in using it.
At ITSMF UK, we have a very active SIG (Special Interest Group) which has been discussing best practice and building up a large body of content and knowledge around the subject.
Start at ground zero and work your way up the SIAM ladder
in this workshop on March 8.
We have just published a paper (sponsored by Axios Systems) on SIAM – Managing Complexity from a single source of truth.
This looks at the requirements for practitioners and organisations when tackling SIAM. The paper covers:
- What is SIAM and why do it?
- What are the challenges with SIAM?
- Key tips and takeaways
There is a new training programme coming from BCS, EXIN and Scopism. This has used the knowledge and experience of a number of practitioner to put together a body of knowledge and generic training programme.
We recently interviewed EXIN about this – see detail here for more information. The group included members of our SIG and we hope to be able to support development of this programme in the future.
We also are developing a load of new practical workshops, including SIAM — our first of these will be run by Steve Morgan. Steve was the chair of our SIG, co-authored our report and was part of the training project. In other words: he really knows this stuff.
So if you want to find out more about SIAM, and how to make it work — please join our workshop on March 8.
