In other words, they will be squandering the opportunities that get created by IoT as well as the digital transformation.
- That is why you, an entrepreneur in the IT service management field, are advised to put in place a strong and concrete strategy for your service management operations.

- This means that you should shed your conservative outlook and keep abreast of the changing trends on the technological front. Not only that, you should be ready to modify, change, and improve your ITSM system suitably for taking full advantage of the developments.

- 3. While getting ready for digital transformation and this changing trend of fast-developing and continuously-evolving IoT devices, you should not overlook the fact that if your growth ambitions clash with your limited resources such as time, manpower, finances, etc., you cannot translate your ambitions into reality.
- There can be only two solutions for this. One is that you should increase your resources and another is to modify your growth ambitions to suit the resources available with you. As far as the first suggestion is concerned, you have no powers to increase the resource called "time." Of course, you can try to have the manpower of the right quality and acquire the required finances but even these two may be possible only to a limited extent. This means that you have to choose the second suggestion, that is modify your growth ambitions according to the resources available with you.
- Regardless of the choice you make, the fact remains that you can make the best use of the trends in the digital transformation as well as IoT devices arenas. But remember that you can accomplish this aim only if you put in place appropriate ITSM tools in your company.
- 4. Most importantly, there should be an attitudinal change in you, your top executives, and your employees.
