A process to manage service levels ensures that all IT services offered to customers comply with agreed-upon levels of quality. It includes ensuring that Service Level Agreements are in place and being met, measuring and reporting on the service levels, and continually striving to increase the quality of service over time.

To do all of this, it is crucial to have the proper tools in place. Often, the processes and systems that define service levels are outsourced to third party companies. It is important to understand how to manage them within your own SLM process.

The first step in setting up an SLM process is to identify the most essential services for the business, and then establish realistic metrics for success. This is usually a matter of considering factors such as efficiency in terms of user base, efficiency, and design considerations. It is also important to choose technology expertise carefully – for example companies that specialize in a specific platform may be able to guarantee higher levels of performance than a generalised service provider.

After the SLA targets are set then teams need to devise an action plan to ensure they are met. This typically involves creating systems that can track the progress of the team, and then automatically notify the team when there are issues in achieving targets.

A well-designed SLM process also includes ongoing improvement processes. These processes will allow teams to learn and improve by analyzing the data they track. For example, if a NOC service is often not able to meet its SLA for answering calls within 30 seconds It should be possible to identify the reason for this, and then correct it.
