Business value

BMC Service Desk acts as a single point of contact for user requests, user-submitted incidents, and infrastructure-generated incidents. BMC Service Desk is the anchor product that enables you to get started with Service Desk Optimization.

An organization must address everyday, immediate incidents to carry out its business. These immediate incidents are the focus of the incident management process. In addition, it is essential to detect, analyze, and resolve problems in the infrastructure.

The BMC Service Desk consists of two features:

These ITIL compliant applications automate the incident and problem management processes to enable IT to respond quickly and efficiently to conditions that disrupt critical services.

Incident Management focuses on getting users up and running after disruptions.

Problem Management focuses on determining the root cause of a problem, and on using the BMC Change Management processes to correct the root cause.
