Multisourcing: Take Control Over Service Relationships
According to Gartner, multisourcing is not something organizations are striving to reach. Rather, it's the new status quo in managing services across an enterprise. With the move toward multisourcing, outsourcing management becomes multisourcing management, requiring new competencies, processes, and technology-enabled solutions geared toward optimizing sourcing performance. The challenge is taking control of multisourcing service relationships, ensuring that it continually serves the needs of the service organization in terms of performance, cost, value and flexibility.
Service level agreements (SLAs) are critical for success in managing multisourced services. Digital Fuel's ServiceFlow enables effective service relationships to occur through automated SLA Management. ServiceFlow is a robust enterprise application with built-in business processes important to proactive management of SLAs. Additionally, ServiceFlow delivers many valuable capabilities to manage services in a multi-sourced environment: involving multiple service agreements across multiple service providers with the need for management of operating level agreements to effectively deliver the intended business value. The Digital Fuel ServiceFlow BSM solution provides a service organization with up-to-date understanding of business impact resulting from a proactive view into service delivery with comprehensive capabilities for root-cause analysis, real-time BSM dashboards, and much more that will be demonstrated at the Gartner Outsourcing Summit.
Greater Transparency and Proactive Management
Digital Fuel solutions have been at the core of many multisourcing engagements by innovative service organizations such as Capgemeni, IBM, P&G and Siemens Business Services. When ServiceFlow is included as part of managing service relationships, clients realize a streamlined process for managing delivery against a shared understanding of each SLA obligation by using the patented Digital Fuel visual modeling approach to quickly "digitize the contractual obligations". The end result is that both the service supplier and buyer are on the same page from the onset of any outsourcing agreement and throughout the lifecycle of the service relationship. When service organizations utilize ServiceFlow to manage their multi-sourced service arrangements, all members in the service relationship benefit from greater transparency and proactive management that prevents customer problems and demonstrates business value from each service.
