It should be recognised that during an implementation the most likely thing to occur is that the tool will be designed the same way as the current processes and tools. If your processes are not ideal or not aligned to the needs of the business, then a tool implementation has the very obvious danger of implementing new technology to do the same thing you are doing now, providing you with no added benefit. Adopting IT Service management principles should be considered as a way forward in mitigating the above risk and also help in delivering business aligned IT Services.
