Atlassian Jira Service Management

The role of IT Service Management (ITSM) extends far beyond basic IT support, assuming a strategic position within organizations. Its core objective is to deliver IT as a service, ensuring that IT teams oversee the end-to-end delivery of IT services to customers. Encompassing a wide array of workplace technologies and tech-based processes, ITSM permeates every department of modern businesses. It is expected to provide support to any team reliant on technology, a characteristic applicable to virtually all teams in today’s business landscape.

Given the widespread integration of technology across organizational departments, ITSM tools are adaptable to meet the unique needs and workflows of diverse teams. Leveraging ITSM principles and frameworks such as the IT Infrastructure Library (ITIL), other departments can incorporate best practices from ITSM. This integration fosters the development of holistic and efficient Enterprise Service Management (ESM) strategies tailored to the specific requirements of each department.


IT Service Management (ITSM) and Enterprise Service Management (ESM) represent related yet distinct concepts within organizational frameworks. ITSM primarily targets IT-related services, whereas ESM broadens these practices to encompass a wider spectrum of service teams throughout the organization. ESM integrates business-centric use cases, orchestrates service demand and supply via unified platforms, portals, and service catalogs, and harnesses PaaS/low-code development tools to enhance innovation and automate workflows.

While ITSM focuses on resolving IT service issues, ESM extends service management principles from ITSM to other departments, enhancing service delivery and efficiency. However, the relationship between ITSM and ESM isn’t one of opposition but rather of symbiosis. ESM inherits the advantages of ITSM and applies them to diverse business scenarios.

Implementing a robust ESM strategy allows businesses to capitalize on successful ITSM implementations and extend those insights across various teams. By integrating proven ITSM processes where relevant, ESM optimizes internal operations, fosters collaboration between teams and functions, and facilitates efficient service delivery. This approach breaks down silos within the organization and generates enhanced value for the entire enterprise.

The objective is to transition from ITSM to ESM by leveraging successful practices and tailoring customized ITSM-based processes to the specific needs of departments or teams within the organization.
