I have been working with our Web Help Desk team the past couple of months, so I have learned a lot about Service Management. The first thing that strikes me is how much easier it is to implement and use compared to the NOC builds I used to do in the 90"s. The typical ticketing system back then was a client/server application running on a proprietary database. Not only were these systems a nightmare to install, we would also have to train a DBA and the help desk team before anyone could use it. The installation, configuration and testing was about a two week process, performed by me, the NOC Consultant.
Get Service Management Running Quickly!
What was my experience this time around? A lot of things have changed for the better, here is this list!
Installation under 20 minutes.
Choice of industry standard databases.
Configuration and testing in one day.
A great deal of flexibility with out feeling like I was lost in a spider web.
That's when it hit me! It really felt like a spider web trying to get those old systems humming. It wasn't the nice, concentric type of web, more the spider on crack CIA experiment web.
