How AI can be used in IT Service Management

Integrating AI into ITSM with Pink Elephant and Freshworks

Artificial Intelligence (AI) continues to redefine the boundaries of what is achievable in the technological landscape, presenting a spectrum of opportunities across different domains, including IT Service Management (ITSM).

What types of AI are there?

There are multiple types of AI, including but not limited to Machine Learning and Deep Learning, each characterised by unique properties and applications. These types of AI can be broadly categorised into Discriminative and Generative AI, where the former excels in distinguishing between different kinds of data, while the latter is proficient in generating new data instances.

What role can AI play in IT Service Management?

The integration of AI into ITSM within companies can bring about transformative advancements by streamlining operations and enhancing the customer service experience. AI has the capability to automate routine and repetitive tasks, such as ticket classification, prioritisation, and routing, thereby allowing IT professionals to focus more on resolving complex issues and strategic initiatives.

AI-driven chatbots and virtual assistants can provide instant support to end-users by answering queries and resolving common issues, drastically reducing resolution times and improving user satisfaction. One of Pink Elephant’s ITSM platform partners, Freshworks, is at the forefront of integrating AI through its Freshservice omnibot, ‘Freddy’, which deploys Google technology to bring conversational AI to the Freshworks customer engagement platform. Freddy exemplifies the capability of AI to revolutionise IT service management and delivery.

Finally, AI can optimise ITSM through machine-learning algorithms. For example, AI can analyse historical incident data, predict potential issues, and suggest proactive measures to mitigate them before they impact the business.
