The ability to monitor the health of business services is a key advantage of having a service-aligned” view of IT. Underpinning this service-aligned view is a concise, accurate, real-time mapping of applications, their supporting IT components, and their inter-relationships. Once these maps are bound to real-time data from IT service monitoring and event management systems, an accurate, always up-to-date measurement of the health of each business service is readily accessible, including the criticality and priority of incidents affecting service health. Ideally, this information is presented in an intuitive dashboard that lets IT staff see the health of business services across the enterprise at a glance.

Business Service – A service that is delivered to business customers by business units. For example, delivery of financial services to customers of a bank, or goods to the customers of a retail store. Successful delivery of business services often depends on one or more IT services. A business service may consist almost entirely of an IT service – for example, an online banking service or an external website where product orders can be placed by business customers.
Results: The ÖBB is facing a lot of the current challenges with missing standardization, the complexity and measurement of service quality. This is solved by empowerment and digitalization of all possiblities for procurement. E.g. simple products and services below €5k are mostly automized from request till monitoring. In area of procurement of business- or more complex services the success criterias are standardization (e.g. of roles), x-functional teams, transparency, communication, measurability and development. So has the ÖBB developed and establish an internal academy and a support organization for anyone involved in procurement. That’s why procurement is now well known in the organization and introduced in more complex procurements much earlier. That leads to a more professional, more innovative, more quality and faster contracting with more savings.
An IT service may not be customer-facing, for example, an IT service which is seen as ‘back office’ as it supports the execution of an internal business process, such as the support for a billing process which the finance department would own and manage. Business service is a broad term encompassing an array of industries serving the needs of corporation, consumers, and citizens. It includes various sectors like finance, professional services, management of companies, administrative support, hospitality and tourism.
