Vienna, VA (PRWEB) February 25, 2014
Intelsat General Corp. (IGC), a leading provider of satellite communications services to government and commercial customers, has contracted with Fusion PPT to identify and integrate an ITIL-based ITSM platform into the IGC business processes, including trouble-ticket handling, configuration management, knowledge database, and asset management.
The effort will involve analyzing current and future requirements of IGC business processes and implementing an ITSM tool for enhancing quality execution and delivery of programs. IGC currently uses customized software for these tasks that was developed in-house. The ITSM tool will further refine the efficiency and effectiveness of trouble ticket management and service level requirements as well as provide a means of more effectively resolving program risks while saving overall costs.
“Service management activities are critical for IGC to ensure that outages don’t affect customer services and can be managed effectively,” said Mark Daniels, Vice President of Engineering at IGC. “Integrating these tools to an ITIL-based ITSM platform will reduce costs and optimize our business process efficiency at a time of growing service complexity.”
IGC provides a variety of secure, customized, end-to-end satellite communications solutions to government, military, and commercial customers. Over the past several years, IGC has increased its operational efficiency and productivity by improving ITIL-based service management programs within the organization.
“Our deep ITILv3 and configuration management experience has placed us in an ideal position to assist IGC in their mission,” said Michael Biddick, Fusion PPT CEO. “We have been working with IGC to continue to enhance the effectiveness of their IT operations and the efficiency of the services that they provide to their customers.”
As an IT research pioneer and a vendor-independent advisor to their clients, Fusion PPT leverages emerging technologies such as cloud computing, big data, and mobile technologies to help organizations to address their critical IT concerns.
