This fully accredited SIAM Foundation course provides an introduction to service integration and management, including its history, business drivers, roles, challenges and the processes that support SIAM models. It is suitable for anyone working in, or wishing to work in an organization using SIAM management practices.

What is SIAM?

Service integration and management (SIAM)  is a management methodology that can be applied in an environment that includes services sourced from a number of service providers.

SIAM is an evolution of how to apply a framework for integrated service management across multiple service providers. It has developed as organizations have moved away from outsourced contracts with a single supplier to an environment with multiple service providers. SIAM has evolved from the challenges associated with these more complex operating models.

 SIAM supports cross-functional, cross-process, and cross-provider integration. It creates an environment where all parties:

  • Know their role, responsibilities and context in the ecosystem
  • Are empowered to deliver
  • Are held accountable for the outcomes they are required to deliver

The SIAM methodology encompasses:

  • Practices
  • Processes
  • Functions
  • ​Roles
  • Structural elements

There are three layers in the SIAM ecosystem:

  • Customer organization (including retained capabilities)
  • Service integrator
  • Service provider(s)
