    CONTROL QUESTION: How is release management for new application services integrated with the ITSM capabilities?

    Big Hairy Audacious Goal (BHAG) for 10 years from now:
    In 10 years from now, our ITSM capabilities will be seamlessly integrated with release management for new application services. This integration will completely transform the way we deliver and manage IT services, leading to increased efficiency, agility, and innovation within our organization.

    The ultimate goal for ITSM in 10 years is to have a fully automated and standardized process for releasing new application services. This process will be tightly integrated with our ITSM platform, allowing for a seamless transition from development to production.

    Our goal is to have a single, unified platform that enables us to track and manage all stages of the release management process. This includes planning, testing, deployment, monitoring, and rollbacks. By eliminating silos and manual processes, we will achieve faster time-to-market for our new services and reduce the risk of errors or delays.

    Furthermore, our ITSM capabilities will also be integrated with continuous integration and delivery (CI/CD) tools, allowing for automated testing, code reviews, and deployments. This will not only streamline our release management process but also ensure the quality and stability of our new services.

    With this level of integration, our ITSM platform will become the central hub for managing all aspects of new service releases. It will provide real-time visibility and control over the entire process, with built-in analytics and reporting to track performance and identify areas for improvement.

    Ultimately, our big, hairy, audacious goal for ITSM is to become a leader in the industry for seamless integration of release management with ITSM capabilities. This will not only position us as a highly efficient and innovative organization but also enable us to continuously provide exceptional services to our customers.
