9 SERVICE MANAGEMENT-Overview SOLUTION CENTER - Session 11/28/12 Service Manager – Is the ticketing application used by the Help Desk for Incident Management as well as groups here in IT for Change Control. We have recently upgraded the system to a version that provides a mobile solution for managing changes and incidents as well as a better designed Knowledge Management module. INCIDENT MANAGEMENT CHANGE MANAGEMENT PROBLEM MANAGEMENT KNOWLEDGE MANAGEMENT INCIDENTS LOGGED CHANGE TYPES —Standard – Scheduled —Emergency – Changes within 24 hours of entering into SM —Operational –Changes that do not impact any other system or application. Upcoming code change will enable this. Formerly known as P99 or Root Cause Tickets In SM Problem was configured in too rigid a manner for JH workflow, so we recently modified the code to better accommodate our customers. NEW! Knowledge Management is a new module that offers the ability to create a knowledgebase and load documentation that can be used by the Help Desk and SM customers. 9

10 SERVICE MANAGEMENT-Overview Morning call – Daily call weekdays at 8:30AM where we review the top 6 groups whose changes can impact the institution. Then the other teams changes are reviewed. Open forum for discussion of changes with those that are knowledgeable about the change. SM 9.30 Upgrade: Mobility client – Will allow the management of incidents and changes from a Smart Phone. Knowledge Management – ability to load knowledge documentation that can be used by SM customers Has a tremendously powerful search engine that will pull knowledge up like a Google search. Metrics support: Metrics are provided monthly to all teams reflecting the number of incidents assigned to their teams, P1, 2, and 3s. We can pull metrics on groups, Services, length of time from open to close, etc. Consultation, Project Management – We can help a group with a myriad of tasks from what is the best solution for the budgeted dollars with conferencing, to creating crisp, clear, concise documentation for new devices, to recommending solutions for IT challenges with ticketing applications, etc. Communications – We participate in conference bridges for P1 incidents. We have created a guide for managing P1s from the group level up to catastrophic events. Future : Self-service ticketing is currently in the pilot phase with CTS. We are tweaking the form as we identify more efficient ways to make the experience less onerous for the customer. Knowledge will be key in this effort as the customer will be able to look at a Knowledge article to find answers to questions that do not need to go to the Help Desk with the goal of having more break/fix issues going to teams instead of how-tos etc. Service Catalog - In FY13 we will be implementing the HP Service Manager Service Catalog which will list all the goods and services available to the customer to pick from in IT. The application will then create incidents for the teams to fill the request. It is the penultimate one stop shop for an IT customer. SOLUTION CENTER - Session 11/28/12 Contd 10

12 CONTRACTS/SOFTWARE/SR-Overview SLIC – ( SLIC is the Software Licensing Information Center. This is where you can find answers to most of your questions regarding Software Licensing and/or SPARS such as new products, updates, etc. Theres also an extensive FAQ section explaining everything from what is a license to what is the difference between Work at Home and departmental use Software Licensing strives to offer software that can be used by a vast majority of faculty and staff. With having one centralized department for Enterprise Licensing, we are usually able to negotiate larger volume discounts. This also means that were not able to offer Software that is not widely used. One of the biggest challenges we are dealing with is to improve SPARS by offering downloads. We have for some time looked at off the shelf products to see how and if they can be customized to fit the various and complex Hopkins needs. We are continuing our efforts and appreciate any suggestions/ideas you may have (you may direct those to SOLUTION CENTER - Session 11/28/12 Software Licensing Our mission is to ensure the availability of authorized and legal software at educational and volume licensed discounts to the Johns Hopkins community. SPARS – ( Spars is the Software Procurement and renewal system; its basically the purchasing vehicle for your departmental Software needs. 12

13 CONTRACTS/SOFTWARE/SR-Overview Service Request The Service Request (SR) system is used to purchase new Computer Hardware & Peripherals, and non-Enterprise software. It is also used as a tracking and project management system for LAN Services and Network Services. The SR system was designed to allow users to request multiple services via one system and have one central point of contact for status (the SR coordinator). For example, a customer could order a PC, have it setup by their LAN admin and order/install any software along with it. While the system works well, it is outdated and we are looking to make some changes. Currently we are working on moving the Network Service requests to Telecom Service requests. Customers will have one form to fill out for either a Telecom or a Network request. We will share further details as we come closer to the completion of this project. Please remember that problem calls will continue to be channeled through the HelpDesk. SOLUTION CENTER - Session 11/28/12 Contd 13
