Team: Army National Guard (ARNG) Enterprise IT Service Management (ITSM) Team
Background: Over the past year the ARNG Enterprise ITSM team implemented new capabilities or functionalities, added or enhanced technologies, and introduced or matured processes that have increased demand, capacity, and efficiency, including implementation of an enterprise service portal and State service portals. With these solutions and services, States avoid funding hardware, license, maintenance, and support costs by migrating from six different tools used that were used previously. At the Enterprise level, the team reduced licensing costs by more than $7.4 million over the next five years. Within the past year, the team added nine States, and now supports 21 States and Territories and more than 66,000 users. It is important to note in the National Guard, the States have a choice to draw support at the State or Federal level. There is a waiting list of new States requesting access to Enterprise ITSM solutions, and States that currently have access to the ITSM suite are also requesting additional services.
