The best word to describe the market of IT Service Management (ITSM) solutions is crowded — there are many, many options out there. For IT leaders responsible for selecting a solution, the process of licensing a new solution can be overwhelming. Of course, the first step is to select an ITSM tool that meets your feature and functionality requirements. That's the bare minimum requirement.
