Service Integration and Management Market Dynamics
The cost efficiency and value enhancement offered by SIAM are the key driving factors for the SIAM market. The service integration of any business process flow incurs additional costs to an organization, irrespective of it being provisioned externally or internally. The adoption of the SIAM model leads to business and IT cost optimization and an increase in the service value for the company. Therefore, on account of cost saving and service value improvement, the preference of more companies for SIAM solutions is increasing, thereby driving the market growth. The cost of service management for any organization gets reduced by the adoption of the SIAM model because of the innovative technologies it brings to the organization, competition between various service providers, proper use of skilled and scarce resources, and reduction in process execution costs.
The lack of standardized and efficient SIAM solutions offered by various service providers is a key factor restraining the growth of the global SIAM market. Often, collaborations and dealings between cross-functional teams are not supported by a standardized process and interface. The SIAM model requires all the service providers to work in unison to ensure the processes are aligned. But if some of the service providers, integrators, or end users are unable or unwilling to make the necessary adaptations to support the process integration, then the outcome may get adversely affected. This may also result in inefficiency in the integrated process’s execution, failure in meeting the end-to-end service goals, miscommunication, and unforeseen overhead expenses.
