Get Started with ESM Application Administration


The Enterprise Service Management (ESM) system is a tool designed for organizations to manage their services, assets, projects, and more. Departments may opt-in to utilizing the ESM platform at any time by submitting an Enterprise Service Management ticket. Once onboarded, departments will have a Ticketing app configured for their use. Each department ticketing application has one, or more, departmental employee(s) identified as an Application Administrator (aka AppAdmin, App Admin) in order to ensure that departments are able to remain agile in responding to changing business requirements. These individual(s) are authorized and responsible for the maintenance, management, and overall operation of their department's ESM application. App Admins may request support at anytime by submitting an Enterprise Service Management ticket.
