1 Jack Schmidt and Mark Kaletka Fermilab NLIT 2009

2 Helpdesk Assessment IT Service Management Assessment Building the Service Desk What We Did Well What We Could Have Done Better Next Steps

3 Computer Room Ops ARS to Assist Operators 24 x7 Automatic Alerts Single Point of Contact

4 Management initiated review to improve service Why doesnt the tool work as expected? Do we have the correct skill set? Where are the metrics?

5 Unstructured customer support mechanism Helpdesk lives in email Drive-by / Walk-Ins Low customer confidence Scientists frustrated with response times Repetitive Incidents No proactive problem management

6 Uncoordinated and unrecorded changes No defined processes for making changes. Notification of Helpdesk an afterthought. Lack of scale Helpdesk morphed over years Homegrown tool based around Remedy workflow engine

7 Follow ITIL Best Practices to create a Service Desk Stop living in email! Upgrade Remedy Workflow to ITSM software with Incident Management tool

8 Issues with getting started… New management requirements: Changed scope of improvement from Helpdesk to all of IT, with a concentration on classic IT Services ISO20000 (International Standard for IT Service Management) certification

9 ISO20k certification possible in ~2.5 years (with help) Many areas of tribal knowledge Pockets of excellence Consolidation of redundant areas of IT support will free up resources


11 Use consultants to guide process design and configure tools Use Fermilab staff for process owners Use Fermilab staff to help define and implement processes


13 Objectives Provide a single point of contact for the users Facilitate the restoration of service within agreed service levels Provide an interface for other activities such as Change, Problem, Configuration, Release, Service Level, Availability and Capacity Management
