Maintaining service level agreements is part of service level management. Each time a service is changed or the service level objective of a service change, the service level agreement must be reviewed and revised. The new level of service agreement must reflect changes to the service or service level objectives. Therefore, the management of service level agreements is an important part of the continuous improvement of the ItIL service. ITIL focuses on three types of options for structuring ALS: service-based, customer-based and multi-level SLAs. Many different factors need to be taken into account in determining which ALS structure is best suited to an organization. If the service provider is taken over by another entity or merges with another entity, the client can expect his ALS to remain in effect, but that may not be the case. The agreement may need to be renegotiated. Don`t make assumptions; Note, however, that the new owner does not want to alienate existing customers, so they can choose to honor existing SLAs. There are three types of service level agreements that can be documented. Before defining ITIL service level requirements and agreeing service levels via ALS, the most appropriate SLA structure must be designed.
Depending on the services available to a customer or business, an SLA structure corresponding to the objective is designed. Service level agreements are usually signed during the ITIL service design phase of ITIL`s lifecycle. IT service organizations that manage multiple service providers may wish to enter into Operational Level Agreements (OLA) that explain how some parties involved in the IT service delivery process interact with each other to maintain performance. Because applications are moved from dedicated hardware to the cloud, they must reach the same level of service, or even more sophisticated than conventional installations. SLAs for cloud services focus on data center features and more recently include network features (see Carrier`s Cloud) to support end-to-end SLAs.  The first type of service level agreement structure is service-based ALS. A service-based ALS covers a service for all customers. Consider that the IT service provider provides customer service to many customers. In a service-based service level agreement, the level of service in customer consultation is the same for all customers who use this service.
Yes, for example. B The financial department and the human resources department are two clients who use this service, the same ALS applies between the IT service provider and these two services, since it is a service-based ALS. SLAs are a collection of promises that the service provider makes to the customer. Avoid creating a single ALS for your entire service catalog. For example, instead of defining that all IT service requirements will be met in five hours, create separate ALSs for each IT service you want to follow. In addition to defining the services to be provided, the contract should also document how services should be controlled, including how data is collected and reported, how often it is verified, and who is involved in the audit.
