What is the one key element that gives organizations a competitive edge? Customer service.
In the digital era, as users continue to seek new services using smart devices daily, organizations have to provide services on both sides of quality and value creation. Effective ITSM, in today’s service era, is a way to improve user satisfaction through quality management and, at the same time, promote change by delivering value to users. To derive the full value out of their services and gain a competitive advantage in the market, organizations need to shift from system-oriented to a service-oriented outlook and transform traditional business models by adopting the best ITSM practices. Here, it is important to understand that ITSM initiatives are not limited to the implementation of ITSM tools and practices but the overall enhancement of organizational service capabilities powered by the transformation. It is essential to transform an organization’s capability into superior service management and business service model by recognizing the true value of ITIL. DIG2 Next empowers organizations to achieve exactly that. With almost two decades of experience in the ITIL/ITSM space, DIG2 Next's team offers solution capabilities using ITIL to solve customer issues and foster a high level of customer satisfaction. DIG2 Next promotes changes to people and organizations in the form of consulting and education as well as supports service management and organizational strength. In this way, the company helps clients build strong capabilities that provide an upper hand. “We support the development of service-oriented human resources and organizational reforms that can transform businesses,” says Toshio Suzuki, MD, DIG2 Next.
Capturing the Essence of ITIL
At the onset, the company understands a client’s issues and then offers consulting services that suit their situation. The team suggests improvements with a focus on service management and project management from the perspective of the end user, maximizing business outcomes for the client. With the expertise of the company’s team in ITIL, organizations can perceive their clients' business needs from two perspectives—service provider and business. This allows them to understand the desired outcomes while also encouraging continual service improvement.

DIG2 Next's education and consulting accurately captures the essence of ITIL and provides support services that focus on customer business issues in a timely manner. “In other words, we support the strengthening of organizational abilities as a core capability for Japanese companies to develop services globally with the true value of ITIL,” says Suzuki. With a focus on the overwhelming strength of ITSM education and consulting in the Japanese market, DIG2 Next’s strategy is developing education and consulting for ITIL/ITSM as its core competence, while fostering honesty and transparency with customers. Helmed by Suzuki, who is the first person in Japan with ITIL V3 Expert, SIAM Professional, and VeriSM Professional certifications, DIG2 Next has established itself as a frontrunner in Japan for ITIL.
In a recent example, a customer incorporated the true value of ITIL as the soul of the organization with the help of DIG2 Next consulting. In a similar fashion, DIG2 Next plans to create a foundation for Japanese companies to fight in the service era. In Japan, where the manufacturing industry is particularly strong, DIG2 Next aims to incorporate the essence of ITIL into manufacturing as a service in the Industry 4.0 era.
ITSM's initiatives are to strengthen organizational capabilities and empower an organization. A case study of DIG2 Next is a successful practice of accelerating ITSM's initiatives by gaining adequate management understanding through dialogue with all senior managers involved in the initiatives. Most importantly, an organization is a group of people who interact with each other to promote organizational capabilities and change.
