The Service Management World Event in Orlando, Florida, gathered service management professionals from diverse industries to discuss and dissect the challenges they face in their organizations. We were fortunate enough to listen in on many of these conversations and noticed a number of common problems. In this blog post, we will explore these challenges and offer some insights into these pressing issues raised during the event.
1. Navigating Complex and Cross-Functional Processes
A recurring theme at the event was the complexity of modern business processes, which often span multiple functions and departments. Attendees pointed out that many legacy service management systems, fall short in fostering agility, making it challenging to adapt and support these intricate workflows.
2. Issues with Reporting and Getting Insights: The Quest for Transparency
Another widespread issue discussed at length was the lack of transparency and difficulties in obtaining meaningful insights from service management systems. Many organizations felt like they were “flying blind” due to the absence of clear visibility into their service operations.
3. Silos Across the Organization: Hindrances to Collaboration
Numerous event participants expressed frustration with their service management systems that seemed to exacerbate organizational silos rather than facilitating collaboration. These systems were perceived as making it more difficult for teams and departments to work together effectively.
4. Poor Knowledge Management: Struggling to Capture and Share Knowledge
Effective knowledge management was identified as a critical challenge by attendees. The reasons for this challenge were varied, including the lack of AI support and other factors. Knowledge capture and sharing were seen as areas in need of improvement.
5. Not Utilizing Capabilities to the Fullest: The Cost of Underutilization
Lastly, unfavorable pricing and packaging can lead to underutilizing the capabilities of service management systems. Organizations often found themselves paying for modules and features that were not fully leveraged, leading to missed opportunities and potential financial penalties.
