HP Service Manager is used to administer and process tickets within the framework of IT Service Management. The Service Manager adheres to ITIL V3. Various modules are used, such as incident, problem, change, etc. With the ESS (Employee Self Service) Web control surface, end users can issue their own interaction tickets, which a support technician can then use to open an incident. If no solution is found, the Service Desk can transfer incidents and interaction tickets as well as track problems and changes.

The new concept of the Enhancement Packages (EhPs) from SAP is ingenious from a technical perspective. It’s actually too bad that SAP, the supplier par excellence for business software, has taken so long to create this software logistics concept. Based on the time and effort they’ve put in, any SAP CIO can tell you what this gap in the framework has cost customers. Yet it’s not quite as cut and dried as suggested in the Inside IT article entitled “No More Tedious Upgrades” dated February 4, 2009. The way Roche’s CIO Jennifer Allerton is quoted, one might be led to believe that specialists are no longer need for upgrades.

She believed that the new Business Suite would enable the company to avoid having to carry out upgrades. And this is a deadly fallacy.
