Firms Expand Enterprise Services with Providers’ Help

Enterprise service management (ESM) emerged as a major focus in 2022 as organizations sought outside support to help them adapt their processes under changing business conditions, according to a new research report published today by Information Services Group (ISG) (Nasdaq: III), a leading global technology research and advisory firm.

The 2023 ISG Provider Lens™ Enterprise Service Management — Services report for the U.S. finds ESM has evolved out of IT service management (ITSM) as organizations look to gain control over more enterprise functions using existing ITSM solutions. This trend is increasing demand for ESM consulting, implementation and managed services in the U.S.

“ESM helps companies understand their customers and employees by combining data and aligning processes across the organization,” said Andy Miears, director, adaptive organization, with ISG. “Enterprises are turning to service providers to get the most from their ESM initiatives.”

The rising importance of customer experience to stand out from competitors and drive business success is a major trend that is set to continue, especially in the U.S., ISG says. Other non-IT services are also being transformed as new technologies are introduced. This has forced enterprises to look beyond traditional IT management processes, such as ticketing and asset management, to deliver better and more personalized support in all areas to both customers and employees.

Providers of implementation services continue developing better methods for identifying the best ESM solutions for each client, the report says. Using solution mapping, they systematically identify a company’s business requirements as part of planning for an ESM deployment.

Many enterprises are strengthening their ESM capabilities with managed services that enable seamless operations and continuing technology advancements, the report says. They are also increasingly taking advantage of low-code/no-code development tools that let employees create custom applications without relying on IT departments.

AI and chatbots play a growing role in ESM, automating mundane tasks and generating insights and recommendations that help companies anticipate user needs, ISG says. The use of self-service support is rising with the increasing sophistication of conversational AI tools.

“Automation is now the norm in enterprise services,” said Jan Erik Aase, partner and global leader, ISG Provider Lens Research. “Reusable components are making it easier for providers to integrate automation for common use cases.
