SQIM is strategically positioned to offer Service Lifecycle Management service, custom designed to meet its clients SLA, OLA and KPI requirements. Key SLCM phases are as follows:

  • Define: Identify a business need and create a service to meet that need.
  • Deliver: Make the service available to its target end-users.
  • Monitor: Use relevant metrics to gauge performance.
  • Support: Enable end users to get the greatest benefit from the service.
  • Analyse: Watch for trends and problem areas.
  • Optimize: Adjust as necessary.

SQIM will apply the 5 phases above to strategise a SLCM model and design a working service catalogue with defined SLA and OLA requirements. The service catalogue will consist of:

Service desk
The service desk is the first point of call for all support. The Service Desk is a single point of contact (SPOC) for end-users who need help. Without this single point of contact an organization would face major losses in time spent on looking for ways to fix issues and get help.

Incident management
Incident management baselines need to be in place to monitor performance and service quality accurately, and assist in handling incidents in line with SLA’s, reducing business impact of incidents by timely resolution. Effectively implementing an incident management process will improve aspects of service quality, allow for better staff utilization, leading to greater efficiency.

Change Management
Change Management process is to ensure that standardised methods and procedures are used for efficient and prompt handling of all Changes, in order to minimize the impact of Change-related Incidents upon service quality, and consequently to improve the day-to-day operations of the organization.
