ManageEngine, the enterprise IT management division of Zoho Corporation, today announced the general availability of enterprise service management (ESM) capabilities in the on-premises version of its flagship ITSM (information technology service management) solution, ServiceDesk Plus. Businesses can now create and deploy individual service desk instances for multiple departments using ServiceDesk Plus and make them accessible to end-users on an enterprise service portal.

Fulfilling end-user expectations and unifying siloed service desks across the organisation can be challenging for IT leadership because of the absence of universally accepted standards for managing enterprise-wide service delivery processes. Service delivery, irrespective of business function, involves uniting data, people and processes through automation. Therefore, adopting proven service management best practices, like ITIL, across the enterprise is a wise move. ITSM solutions makes a great starting point for organisations to design, implement and move to an ESM model.

"While every department leverages technology to deliver its services, inconsistent processes and disparate tools result in a poor user experience overall and lost productivity," said Rajesh Ganesan, vice-president at ManageEngine.

"A proven way to address this challenge is to replicate IT's model of service delivery across the enterprise. This new capability in ServiceDesk Plus helps our customers seamlessly and effortlessly extend service management best practices to all departments."

Separate service desks delivering a unified experience

The ESM functionality in ServiceDesk Plus offers:

  • The rapid-start capability to create a service desk instance in under 60 seconds while keeping each department’s service desk compartmentalised and autonomous in terms of data, automations and people.
  • A central ESM portal for end-users to access the different service desk instances across the organisation.
  • An ESM directory to manage the organisation's users and service desks from a central console.

Pricing and availability

The rapid-start enterprise service desk capabilities will be available in the latest version of ServiceDesk Plus, launching on 8 October 2019. Based on the size and maturity of each department’s service delivery processes, organisations can choose between the Standard, Premium, and Enterprise editions for each instance. A free, fully functional 30-day evaluation edition is also available. For pricing, contact ITR Technology,
