Service Level Agreements

Define and agree to SLAs for all critical IT services based on customer requirements and IT capabilities. This should cover customer commitments; service support requirements; quantitative and qualitative metrics for measuring the service signed off on by the stakeholders; funding and commercial arrangements, if applicable; and roles and responsibilities, including oversight of the SLA. Consider items such as availability, reliability, performance, capacity for growth, levels of support, continuity planning, security and demand constraints.

  4. Improve or adjust SLAs based on performance feedback and changes to customer and business requirements.
