Disaggregation and Corporate Services – The pivotal new role of the Service Desk

Mark Petty, Director, Littlefish

Stop the press, disaggregation works! But a highly effective, customer aligned (but potentially not delivered) Service Desk is crucial to success. And there are emerging opportunities to expand the benefits across the Corporate Services scope. Join us to find out more.

The collective consciousness of government departments is to regain control of their IT estates. As a result, IT disaggregation is gathering pace. Government departments find themselves able to take advantage of dedicated skillsets and a specialist multi-vendor approach once more. With the Service Desk being a powerful and natural extension of the service management function, the possibilities for increasing scope into other corporate service provisions present a real opportunity to drive greater consistency, increased efficiency (and hence VFM), and an enhanced end user experience.  Listen as we share how your own organisation can use this opportunity to the fullest advantage.
