BCS EXIN Foundation Certificate in SIAM®
What is SIAM?
Service integration and management is a management methodology that can be applied in an environment that includes services sourced from a number of service providers.
SIAM is an evolution of how to apply a framework for integrated services management across multiple service providers. It has developed as organizations have moved away from outsourced contracts with a single supplier to an environment with multiple service providers. SIAM has evolved from the challenges associated with these more complex operating models.
