Course Description

Are you receiving adequate IT services and value for money from your IT services suppliers? Are you offering the same to your own customers? A formal SLA between the user and the provider of computing services is one of the keystones of today’s IT and telecommunications management.

SLAs are as appropriate to in-house computing, communications, development and support activities as they are to commercial or facilities management operations. By embracing the business case of the user, SLAs can help to justify the company’s overall computing requirements, ease capacity planning, justify resources and establish the case for security and disaster recovery planning.

An effectively implemented SLA enables you to actively manage IT services which consequently enables you to keep IT services aligned with your core competencies, business objectives and departmental focus, all while maintaining high quality levels.

The course starts with a step-by-step guide to helping you design and carry out effective service level agreements in your organisation. Subsequently, the second part will enhance your understanding of IT contracts. This is a unique session covering the pragmatic, contractual, tendering and negotiating aspects of buying IT and computing goods and services.
