What is IT Services Management or ITSM?
IT Services Management is a systematic approach towards managing and aligning all IT support services with the needs of a business. It ensures that the right processes, people, and technology are in place so your organization can meet its business goals. In simple terms, ITSM is about making sure your IT services are as strong and efficient as they can be.
The core essence of ITSM is managing and aligning IT services with your business needs. It is quite different from managing IT as stacks of individual components. ITSM sees IT services as an amalgamation of various elements - hardware, software, and networks, but also human resources, processes, suppliers, and more. It considers these services as a unified whole that seamlessly work together to support the end objectives of the business.
The focus of ITSM is not just to ensure that the technology works correctly; it’s to deliver IT as a service, where resources, practices, and technologies are aimed at providing value to the business user—thus enabling the organization to reach its business

The Differences Between ITSM and ITIL (IT Infrastructure Library)
ITSM and ITIL—two acronyms often mistaken as synonymous—are indeed different. ITSM represents the entire approach to managing IT services, which encompasses the frameworks and methodologies to do so. ITIL (Information Technology Infrastructure Library), on the other hand, is one of those methodologies—a detailed set of best practices for IT service management.
The ITSM Processes
ITSM processes are the defined set of procedures carried out for the design, delivery, management, and improvement of the IT services a business uses. These include:
Service Request Management: Addressing simple, low-risk requests made by users, such as password resets or access provision.
Incident Management: Responding to an unexpected event or service interruption and returning the service to its previous state.
Problem Management: Identifying recurrent incidents and addressing the root cause to prevent future occurrences.
Change Management: Managing changes in a standardized manner to minimize IT service incidents and improve outcomes.
