Service Integration and Management (SIAM) is a methodology used to manage multiple service providers and to integrate them seamlessly to provide a single business-facing IT organisation.
SIAM has a different level of focus to traditional multi-sourced ecosystems with one customer and multiple suppliers. It provides governance, management, integration, assurance and coordination to ensure the customer organisation gets maximum value from its service providers.
Service Integration and Management (SIAM) also has a synonym: multi-sourcing integration (MSI). Within the scope of this certification, only the term Service Integration and Management is used.
The benefits of the SIAM approach are wide-reaching. From cost reduction to improved service for users and greater access to expertise across suppliers, SIAM enables an organization to reap the benefits of being able to pick and choose their suppliers. At the same time, it ensures that consistency is created, processes are clear and agreed upon, and that governance keeps everything in check.
