Why You Should Document Your IT Services in vScope

As a service manager, how do you document your service delivery? Is your organization manually maintaining service related documents in Sharepoint or internal wikis? How do you ensure that the documentation is standardized, up-to-date and without inaccurate data?

Non-existing IT service documentation

Organizations often lack an understanding of how their business services are truly delivered. Relationships and dependencies between IT services and their technical components are rarely documented, mapped or understood.

This lack of knowledge makes it time consuming for IT teams to diagnose and resolve service related issues. For IT managers, the lack of documentation makes prioritization of important IT infrastructure decisions harder as business impact cannot be properly measured. But there is a solution!
