As AI-enabled tools continue on to make a mark on IT operations, the face of Incident Management and proactive Problem Management in the enterprise world is beginning to revolutionize. Companies spend a significant amount on "firefighting" activities and resolving these issues as quickly as possible is critical because it directly affects productivity.
The ITSM system is up and running. However, IT specialists are struggling to cope with the flood of similar incidents, fixing them time and time again. Does the situation sound familiar?

Incident Management resolves issues as soon as possible and reinstates services back to normalcy; however, the main goal of Problem Management is to deliver permanent resolution and avoid these incidents from happening with the help of the Change Management process.
