More About Change Management
Our Change Management solutions provide businesses with a customisable framework of best practices to achieve quality service and overcome difficulties associated with the growth of IT systems. We use a common-sense approach to service management — a common set of practices that unite all areas of IT towards a common goal — delivering value to the business and its clients.
Our Change module offers a comprehensive automated and systems-driven Change Management process for both infrastructure and application. The respective change plans are populated with the specific tasks and associated durations.
Our Change Management Policy governs rules and principles, for example, the changing of target dates for project activities. The approvers are pre-defined and loaded onto the system to receive systems generated notifications of activities to be approved. The simplified approval process is user-friendly, although governed by the Change Management Policies built in to the system for security purposes. The implementation of our automated Change Management process will require minimal effort and customisation.
