What Makes a Service Delivery Model Robust
A well-designed service delivery model is crucial in IT operations and management. The vital components of a robust IT service delivery model are governance, organization, working processes, and performance management.
Good governance provides an executive oversight and explicit alignment of business and IT strategy through prioritization, a well-reviewed budget and funding. By instituting and adhering to a unique and well-designed delivery model any emerging proactive issues can be addressed and tackled appropriately, enabling the proper risk management practices. Datavail’s performance management framework is cost-effective and transparent, with capabilities of achieving target definitions in line with service levels and business needs.

As Seema Jethani, former Director of Product Management at Basho Technologies, noted while discussing NoSQL Databases:
“Developers should always choose performance. Data models can be modified to meet the needs of the user case. Granted additional work may be needed in the application but you can’t get performance out of thin air. Always try to get better performance.”
The Role of a Service Delivery Manager
A service delivery manager institutes policies designed to ensure consistently high service performance, monitors employees, and reviews customer feedback to develop quality improvement processes and improve service delivery processes.
