The Service Level Agreement Policy and Sample Metrics has just been updated
There are 12 full job descriptions in the SLA Policy Silver Edition
The Service Level Agreement Policy and Sample Metrics has just been updated - Identifying key service level and performance metrics are key ingredients in understanding how the path towards an objective can be impacted. Consequently, by establishing a platform that systematically monitors these service level and performance metrics, CIOs and operational executives can consistently get a pulse on the health of the business. Ultimately, by tracking and measuring the performance of their various business segments, CIOs and executives are able to validate their decision-effectiveness against the intended business objectives. Negative results could indicate the need to vary existing strategies or formulate alternative strategies, while inconsistent results could point towards a lack of correlation between the objectives and their associated metrics. In either case, timely executive intervention is important in ensuring realignment of objectives, service levels, metrics, and strategies. CIO and IT Managers must be vigilant in identifying shifts in business performance. By leveraging real-time data and information, executives can become more proactive, rather than reactive, in performance management.
