Are you looking for a new IT service management (ITSM) tool? If so, do you know what your options are? You could, of course, download a copy of the latest Gartner Magic Quadrant for IT Service Management Platforms from one of the ITSM tool vendors that appear within it (although the Gartner Critical Capabilities report is better suited for ITSM tool consideration). But there are so many other potential ITSM tools to consider, with it highly possible that some of these might be better suited to your organization’s needs than those listed in the Gartner Magic Quadrant. There are many ITSM tools available globally. So, if you want to look beyond the above-mentioned Magic Quadrant, here’s a quick list of ITSM tools (the vendors and their offerings).Are you looking for a new #ITSM tool?
