The three largest IT service providers at UNM, Information Technologies, the Health Sciences Library and Informatics Center (HSLIC), and the UNM Hospital(UNMH) have collaborated to consolidate service management with a single service management tool. The major IT service providers seized the opportunity to optimize licensing and make IT service more seamless for all customers. When the HEAT and Peregrine licenses were coming up for renewal, these service providers pooled financial and staff resources to develop similar processes to request and fulfill service requests as well as to intake and track system incidents. Based on ITIL (Information Technology Infrastructure Library) best practices, the Cherwell Inc. product was the successful bidder to UNM. The Cherwell IT service management product has been branded Help.UNM and went live in fall 2011.
