What is Incident Management (IM)?
Incident Management is generally lined up with the service help desk. The service helpdesk is the single point of contact for all clients communicating with IT professionals. It is essential to restore service during regular help hours after you find that the service is disrupted or failed to deliver the expected result. It is crucial to re-establish the support of activity as fast as could be expected.
Furthermore, any condition that can bring in a data breach or degradation of service should trigger a reaction. And that risk reaction must cause real interruption to occur. These are the goals of IM.
Service helpdesk staff typically are called level 1 assistance, which incorporates the following activities:
- Incident Identification
- Incident logging
- Incident order
- Incident prioritization
- Initial diagnosis
- Incident goal
- Incident closure
IM service has more emphasis on doing whatever is important to reestablish the service during its performance. A significant tool in incident diagnosis is the known error database (KEDB), maintained by problem management. The KEDB distinguishes any issues or known errors that have caused incidents before and gives data about any workarounds that have been identified.
The incident model is another tool used by incident management. New incidents are oftentimes like previous incidents. This model characterizes the following aspects:
Steps to deal with the incidents, the order of all the steps and responsibilities:
Safety measures to be taken before settling the incident.
- Resolution timescales
- Heightening strategies
- Evidence preserving
- Episode models smooth out the process
- and lowers risk
IM is dependent on other service management services which comprise of below services:

Service asset and configuration management Incident management vital tool is the CMS that identifies the relationships among service parts and furnishes the coordination of configuration data with the incident and problem data.
Breaching of a service level is called an Incident and this incident triggers a service level management process. Now here SLA comes into the picture. Also, SLA illustrates the periods and escalation protocols for various types of Incidents.
Hence prioritization of incidents is highly important for effective Incident resolution.
