Successful strategies for optimal execution in the changing world of work and resources
"Because ITSM vendors position their products as all-encompassing enterprise system management (ESM) solutions, I&O leaders could become locked in to unsuitable tools for their needs and be faced with a difficult exit strategy." 1
According to Gartner, "By 2022, more than 90% of I&O leaders who selected a new ITSM tool in 2018 because of its promoted capabilities beyond ITSM will remain below ITScore for I&O Level 3."
“ITSM tools often do not work well for PPM leaders and PMOs charged with facilitating difficult decision making regarding the use of limited resources for project work.” 2
If you are an I&O or PMO leader, check out this insightful Gartner report to understand why ITSM tools are not a viable enterprise-wide platform to address your project portfolio management (PPM) needs or long-term business strategy.
