Operations Management – How Leading Companies Found Success?

Operations management is like the backbone of any business. Why? Because all the major activities like procurement, manpower, production, quality testing, inventory, logistics, supply chain, and others rely completely on it.

The “time is money” rule is very common across industries and only those companies are able to make it big which are efficient in their operations. Industry leaders are not born but created over time. Facts and statistics prove that companies which were once going down the drain ended up reaching top positions after managing their operations efficiently and effectively. All of this was possible courtesy of managing infrastructure through the lens of service management. Hence, we can imply that the use of IT is inevitable.

Here, Warner Media (previously known as Time Warner) and TransAlta need a special mention who have found great success by getting their operations management right. Of course, IT has a big role in their success but it cannot go without saying that choice matters. Time Warner standardized their ITSM platform by combining it with IT Operations Management (ITOM), making it easy to manage and beneficial at the same time. In this regard, the products offered by ServiceNow i.e. ITSM and ITOM offered great value for the investment.

The Director of Service Management at Time Warner describes his experience as “With IT automation and managed IT services, we adopted the proactive approach and reduced the number of high-impact incidents greatly. Moreover, we are now also able to resolve the issues in the operations more quickly than ever.”

In this very similar fashion, TransAlta – an electric power generator and wholesale marketing company, reduced 80% service outages by automating their operations. The software helped them in resolving the root causes of problems being faced by the management and the staff during the early days. Today, TransAlta is known to have one of the most efficient business models and it stands as one of the most reputable electricity power generator and wholesale marketing companies.
