IT service management achieves all of the benefits listed above by:

- Enforcing the right process for your company.
ITSM resolves numerous issues, including all managed service requests. Some common requests include:
- Implementing a change to the system (e.g., “I need to modify/remove/add something to the database.”).
- Incidents that affect the overall system (e.g., “My laptop is down.”).
- Recurring problems (e.g., “This desktop app is stuck again.”).
- Requests for a new piece of equipment (e.g., “I need a new keyboard.”).
Outside of these primary benefits, using an ITSM allows for day-to-day conveniences that help contribute to your business’ success by allowing it to run efficiently and effectively.
