• Different for every organisation
• It’s a long-term partnership
• No standard definition
• Role of coordinating different suppliers and service management layers
• ‘Towers’ – suppliers by functions
• Need solid theoretical framework underpinning
• Competing frameworks
• Even if no official role somebody still has to do it
• Challenge is finding a universally recognised language
• Could vendors say their tool is ‘now with service integration’?
• Not a technical problem – it’s understanding what’s needs to happen when & who needs to see it
• Challenge to coordinate suppliers when legacy contracts apply
• Recruitment – different skill level & experience needed
• Not just about investing to manage failure but how much additional value / return
• IT spent too long teaching customers to ask for technical SLAs
