New monthly subscription rounds out the industry’s most complete portfolio of flexible delivery offerings to manage IT services

IBM announced the availability of new online software services based on the same on-premise solutions used by clients today – now delivered as a monthly subscription offering – that enables better automation and control of IT Service Desk functions. This new service adds to IBM’s software-as-a-service offerings that help automate a range of IT services critical to maintaining business operations.
