As an IT service provider, you understand that information can provide a powerful strategic advantage. In order to ensure the proper mechanisms are in place for information collected, analyzed, produced and distributed seamlessly, many IT service providers implement a service desk. A service desk acts as the main point of contact for any IT related questions. Unlike a help desk that clients can call when they are having problems with their IT services, service desk personnel monitor and manage each layer of client service from beginning to end.Any discussion of the future of the service desk would be incomplete without a look at the technology that we might be using and what it will enable us to achieve. This presentation will explain different approaches of the next-generation Service Desk namely SD 2.0 (or in some cases, SD 2017 referring to Year 2017).
