Business Service Management (BSM) is not a product. Instead, it's a strategy for linking key IT components to business goals that comes from IT infrastructure management. Business Service Management helps you understand and predict how technology impacts your business and how business impacts your IT infrastructure.

Business Service Management's most important piece is a comprehensive and flexible IT management strategy. It incorporates best practices, especially those from the IT Infrastructure Library (ITIL) that help your organization:

  • Reduce IT operation and support costs by as much as 18%
  • Improve response time and availability
  • Improve service quality by finding and fixing IT issues before they affect users

Business Service Management Technologies & Solutions

SMSB Systems Systems’ Business Service Management solutions and services use technologies from BMC Software. Several years ago, BMC pioneered BSM to help align IT operations with business needs. Today, BMC Software bases their Business Service Management approach on three disciplines: Service Assurance, Service Automation, and Service Support

We have the knowledge and skills to provide a thorough understanding of IT service management. You'll learn how to use Business Service Management to improve the systems, applications, processes, and services your business depends on.

The SMSB SystemsOSS Configuration Management Module provides an interface for service orders, trouble tickets, switch provisioning, cable records, directory records and inventory items.

Network Provisioning

The SMSB Systems OSS Automatic Switch Interface (ASI) works on all switching platforms (Soft Switches, IP Switches/Servers, and Circuit Switches). The work order interface is dynamically integrated with ASI. The work order interface provides a user friendly simple interface for network provisioning. The work order interface is designed for any user at any skill set level to process work order requests. Network provisioning is accomplished through the same user friendly work order interface that all work order requests are processed through. SMSB Systems OSS makes network provisioning easy as pie. Anyone can do it, no serious technical knowledge required!

Via web interface, work orders can be deployed to one or multiple locations. The SMSB Systems OSS work order system allows SMSB Systems OSS users to create electronic service order routes. Service order routes are built to move from work group to work group until the service order is completed. Service order fields are connected to database tables for easy data population (i.e. cable, terminal, inventory, billing codes, directory data). SMSB Systems OSS users determine which fields are required during the service order process. Work orders can be sent directly to individuals within a work group or a service order route. Two-way communication is provided for multiple work groups to communicate during the service order process. As work order requests move from one work group to the next (help desk, inside plant, outside plant, QAE), customers automatically receive updated service order status notification. Customers can check status on multiple service orders via web login. When work orders are completed all database tables are updated.

Cable Maintenance

SMSB Systems OSS configuration module includes a cable management package. The cable management system is integrated into the work order interface along with the ASI. This provides users the ability to update cable records during the work order process.

Subscriber Management

The SMSB Systems Subscriber/Directory Management system provides a flexible relational architecture to easily manage the subscriber/directory database. Subscriber data is automatically updated as adds, moves, deletes and changes are made through the provisioning or work flow modules. The system offers a global reporting interface, which allows users to generate reports (ad-hoc and standard) and make global changes to the subscriber database. The subscriber record provides a comprehensive view of the completed make-up of the service listing:  directory, billing, equipment, connectivity, and switch data. Directory data can be easily shared with other enterprise applications through XML file creation and database connections (LDAP, ADO.NET, OLE DB, and ODBC). SMSB Systems OSS also provides users with complete online 411 web directory options.

Inventory Management

The inventory management module provides an easy-to-use, on-shelf and installed inventory tracking system. As work orders and trouble tickets are completed, inventory levels automatically deduct and increase depending on the order type. The system automatically notifies administrators when the on-shelf inventory item drops below the safety stock level. Through the inventory system, users can create stock orders to order new equipment from vendors. Detailed Vendor mailing and billing address are maintained for each vendor. Each inventory item can contain a one-time and recurring cost. When work orders are executed, the billing total and taxes for each item are automatically calculated.

SMSB Systems Activities

SMSB Systems Activities is an automation testing framework, with unmatched support for unit, functional, regression, distributed and HTTP performance testing at the project level. Designed for advanced and novice testers alike, SMSB Systems Activities will help you achieve thorough Quality Assurance in development from the first line of code right through delivery and maintenance, with no surprises along the way.

Operator Work Processes... reality

In Reality- We work in Silos (And miss the big picture)

(Data design tightly coupled to application design, and application design to “user requirements” – very restricted view of process needs)

 

  • Use/Modify/ create application to fulfill a given need.
  • Or in the worst case, do it manually

Net Outcome

  • Huge spending in infrastructure (100’s of application doing 100’s of task), overlapping of functionality with in applications, no clear master of a given task.
  • Decrease in efficiency
  • NightMare - for Life cycle managers
  • Difficult to bring in automation for a process involving multiple applications

 

Solution - Changing the Focus

Design applications in a way - to ignore the context in which they are used

If we can achieve this, we can:

  • Reduce Deployment Effort
  • Reduce Maintenance Effort
  • Reduce Time-to-Market
  • Reduce Risk
