ABSTRACT Although information technology (IT) is taking significant role in businesses with its innovating and supporting potential, it seems that it is least understood company asset. Successful organizations manage IT function in much the same way that they manage their other strategic functions and processes. This in particular means that they understand, manage and systematically measure the quality of IT performance. They are doing so by engaging in IT governance and IT audit activities. In recent years there are number of world-wide used standards and best practices in IT process management area such as CobiT and ITIL, which helps management to measure the IT performances. In this paper we present the case study of managing IT services in finance industry by implementing suggestions which arises from ITIL methodology. After brief explanation of key terms, the methodology of complex ITIL implementation project is given and key performance indicators for major IT related business processes stressed.

    ABSTRACT: IT application has stage characteristics, and in different stages, the key effect factors may vary. Previous research showed that first-line and middle manager IT competencies will affect the IT application. However, little is known about the stage differences of the first-line and middle manager IT competencies. In this study, based on Xiao’s five-stage IT application model, using a sample of 590 first-line and middle managers, independent-samples T test is conducted to analyze the stage differences of the first-line and middle manager IT competence. The results show that there are significant differences of the first-line and middle manager IT competencies among the different IT application stages. When IT application progresses, the differences of the first-line and middle manager IT competencies between the stages become larger. Some theoretical and practical implications are discussed.

    ABSTRACT: It is widely accepted by Information Technology service managers that frameworks such as the IT Infrastructure Library can deliver real operational efficiencies but there are few empirical studies that investigate the benefits realised and performance metrics gathered. The objective of this paper is to provide an international analysis of IT service management benefits and performance measurement by comparing the findings from a recent Australian survey with results from a similar survey conducted in the United Kingdom and United States of America. International literature on Information Systems (IS) effectiveness and performance measurement specifically related to ITSM is reviewed and used to guide the development of the Australian survey. Both surveys report rapid uptake of ITIL(R) Version 3. There are many reported benefits supported by metrics at the process level. However, the comparative analysis of the Australian and UK/USA studies reveals that there is limited awareness of performance measurement frameworks.

    ABSTRACT: This article examines the IT Service Management (ITSM) research literature, starting from past up to the present. The applied research method is the literature review, in which a search is conducted across 8 major global, regional, and national conferences as well as 71 international journals. Furthermore, different database searches are performed. In order to classify the results, a morphological box is used. Moreover, a keyword analysis is conducted to obtain an overview about research topics in IT Service Management. The findings suggest that research in the field of ITSM has matured and diversified over the years. Drawing attention to the different research areas of IT Service Management is the specific contribution of this paper to Information Systems (IS) research. In addition, this paper shows, which areas and topics are explored and which are under explored, respectively, have not yet been the focus of research. A research agenda will be proposed to handle the identified areas of future research. Furthermore, this article gives an insight into the applied theories in IT Service Management.
