COMiT is a web based Service Management tool that conforms to ITIL standards to improve the service management process across the Commonwealth. COMiT supports the service management lifecycle
- Starting with a Service Request, throughout planning and implementation
- Incident Management for any event which is not part of the standard operation of the service and which causes, or may cause, an interruption or a reduction of the quality of the service.
- Change Management to ensure that standardized methods and procedures are used for efficient and prompt handling of all Changes.
ITD established a Service Desk via COMiT in FY11 and has developed standards and guidelines for Customers to implement their own Service Desk within the larger shared COMiT environment.
Expected Outcomes of using COMiT as a customer include:
Improved Environment Stability
Improved Operational Efficiency
Improved Service Reporting
Secretariats now have the option to migrate into COMiT per the goals of the Commonwealth's IT Consolidation plan. Each will have their own 'Service Desk' within the larger shared COMiT environment - allowing for enhanced allocation of resources and greater ability to avoid duplication.
ITD has adopted reproducible processes for other Secretariats to adopt COMiT easily.
