Information Systems Service Management

Information Systems Service Management


Whilst this unit has a focus on ITIL and incorporates the foundation material, it also seeks to ask students to understand Information Systems and Technology in the broader business context. Therefore additional content from the textbook is utilized to build this knowledge and provide a practical aspect to your understanding.

Your assignment content is therefore seeking to build your understanding by taking discussion questions from across the textbook and asking you to provide applied answers. Guides will be given to the appropriate chapter. Questions may require you to do further investigation and not rely solely on the content of a chapter. Questions appear in the chapter order as used in the unit calendar.

Whilst this is not a formal essay assignment your submission should include a cover page with your name and student number, appropriate formatting and referencing (as required).

Questions – Note that each question is worth 20 marks.

1. Chapter 5

Tesco, the U.K. retail grocery chain, used its CRM system to generate annual incremental

sales of £100 million. Using a frequent-shopper card, a customer got discounts at the time of

purchase and the company got information about their purchases, creating a detailed database of

customer preferences. Tesco then categorized customers and customized discounts and mailings,

generating increased sales and identifying new products to expand their offerings. At the individual

stores, data showed which products must be priced below competitors, which products had fewer

price-sensitive customers, and which products must have regular low prices to be successful. In

some cases, prices are store-specific, based on the customer information. The information system

has enabled Tesco to expand beyond groceries to books, DVDs, consumer electronics,

flowers, and wine. The chain also offers services such as loans, credit cards, savings accounts, and

travel planning.

a)  What can Tesco management do now that they have a CRM that they could not do

prior to the CRM implementation?

b) How does this system enable Tesco to increase the valueprovided to customers?

c) What focus is used in providing value i.e. Strategic, tactical or operational? Why is the choice of

focus important?

d) Is the value sustainable over time?

e) In general describe the advantages provided by aligning a CRM system to an organization’s

strategic objectives.
