Digital Fuel®, the leader in customer-facing Business Service Management (BSM) software solutions, today announced that Capgemini, one of the world's foremost providers of Consulting, Technology and Outsourcing services, is utilizing the Digital Fuel ServiceFlow™ business service management software as a key component of its global strategy for managing IT service delivery from a business perspective.
***Business Service Management Software Utilization***

"As a global service provider, it is imperative that we create a consistent global format for products, solutions and delivery levels. To do this, we have implemented ServiceFlow business service management software to manage and understand our own business as well as our client's businesses," added Brian Bodsworth, CTO Global Outsourcing Services at Capgemini.
