Service Integration and Management

A new and efficient way for multi-provider management. Bringing clarity to the complex business world.

Service Integration and Management (SIAM), is the future-oriented framework for efficient multi-provider management. SIAM is a rapidly growing, ITIL-based management model that is used in complex environments with many different service providers. As with ITIL, SIAM is guidebook to best manage service providers in a multi-provider environment.

WHY SIAM

  2. Business Focus

Concept of  a Service Integrator

The main role of the service integrator

So far, companies that have outsourced services have not had an internal function that takes on the overall responsibility for the holistic provision of services and control of different suppliers.
 
SIAM closes this gap by acting as a service integrator. The service integrator is a single, logical unit that is responsible for the optimal end-to-end delivery of services. Figuratively speaking, the service integrator is a much like a construction site supervisor or a conductor.

Structure of Service Integrators

The four structural models of the Service Integrator

Where to locate the Service Integrator differs for each organization. There are four structural models:

You take on the role of service integrator. It stays in your organization.

An external organization assumes the role of service integrator. Strong governance is necessary.

You take over the responsibility for the service integrator. 

A service provider takes on the role of service integrator.

The creation of the treasure map for multi-provider control
