Many organizations fail to meet service levels, are perceived by their customers as ineffective, and are spending too much to maintain their business systems. New technologies continue to add to the complexity and to the cost of running IT. IT organizations are also being asked to reduce operational expenses while continuing to maintain service levels. Competitive pressures are requiring IT organizations to develop and manage infrastructures that deliver new applications to fuel new initiatives with better aligned ROI. Accenture brings:

Accenture IT Service Excellence is the on-going process of managing, monitoring and reporting on technology and services and the business services they impact. It allows operations to manage and observe the health of IT services, as well as ensure that business service levels under-pinned by IT service levels are always in a state of compliance and made visible to stakeholders, along with IT spend levels. As part of its IT Service Excellence offering, Accenture provides the following specific services to help clients develop, manage and optimize their service-delivery capabilities:
Service Desk Design & Implementation: With the rise in the number of applications and devices used by an organization has come greater demand for 24/7 technical support. Accenture helps clients design and implement IT service desk support capabilities—based on Information Technology Infrastructure Library® (ITIL version 3) practices—that are tailored to meet each client’s specific service needs.
Service Management & Governance: Accenture offers a pragmatic roadmap to help its clients manage—and exceed—customer expectations for IT service delivery. The first step involves understanding and defining the IT services to be offered. Step two involves creating the service level agreements, the organizational structure, governance models, and the service design and action plans to achieve customers’ objectives. The third step focuses on communicating value in terms the customer will understand, identifying additional value-creation opportunities, and providing real-time assessments of IT performance.
Service Desk Outsourcing: Accenture Service Desk Outsourcing provides clients with a single point of contact for all technology service incidents and requests, improves first-contact issue resolution with proprietary troubleshooting processes and tools and seamlessly manages all escalated incidents and problems. The service—which currently provides help desk support to more than 1.6 million end users—minimizes the cost of downtime to the business, helps ensure that IT service delivery is aligned to business outcomes and introduces remote and/or self-service capabilities that can reduce help desk costs by 30 to 50 percent.
