1.0 Overview
Most of the organizations depend on several business strategies for implementing various methodologies and techniques.
The present paper supports the need for IT service Management for promoting their services by applying various methodologies
and framework. For instance, Six Sigma program, lean principle, and lean six sigma are different principle involved in IT services
and while this study discuss the Critical Success Factor(CSFs) for IT capability in e-businesses services along with the IT operations
outcome which is useful for the economic development. Furthermore, the review also discussed the advantages of applying various
models in IT services sector. Earlier studies recommend that IT sector is challenging and highly variable so there is a necessity to
adopt service models like lean six sigma or other factors for their successful development.

Carvalho, M. M. D., Ho, L. L. and Pinto, S.H.B (2014) ‘The Six Sigma program: an empirical study of Brazilian companies’,

The main objective of the study is to evaluate the Six Sigma's status in Brazilian companies and attempted to understand
the program integration with other quality management approaches. In addition to this critical success factors (CSFs) involved in the
implementation of Six Sigma and the primary Six Sigma program characteristics were identified. A literature review of the study
represents the primary Six Sigma characteristics and its relationship with other quality approaches. 198 firms are selected, but 46
firms are adopted the Six Sigma program participate in the present study. The study findings recommend an incremental and
synergic pattern of quality model implementation. The findings of the study disclose that firms adopted the Six Sigma in long-term
quality programs and finally they attain a specific level of status in quality management. The participated companies using Six
Sigma have attained the incremental evolution and gives strong synergy with ISO 9000. Therefore, the key findings conclude that
the three possible configurations of the role structure were found which vary on training and the dedication of human resources
involved in the Six Sigma program. There are three CSFs factors were identified such as human resources, organization, and
infrastructure. The major limitation of this study uses a non-probabilistic sample and a reliance on self-reported perceptions. The Six
Sigma diffusion in Brazilian companies is less widespread than in other countries

Using an Integrated Lean Six Sigma Framework: A Case Study in a Software Application Support Scenario,' Journal of
Software Engineering and Applications, 7, pp. 483-497. Available at: http://www.scirp.org/journal/ 10.4236/jsea.2014.76045

The present study revealed that to implement the Integrated Lean Six Sigma for Software application support services
and evaluate the potential benefits of continual service improvement over Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL). Due
to the development of competitiveness in businesses (e.g., Information Technology, Hospitality Financial, Education, Healthcare,
Logistics, Distribution and other services) especially IT sector area, there is a necessity to adopt the business development
philosophies and methodologies. This is to satisfy the consumer needs by providing the better quality service and meet the
organizational demands for increasing the profit margin through reduction of cost. More firms in all over the world have already
implemented the Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL) as a way to manage and control their Information Technology
(IT) Departments in more efficient manner. To increase the efficiency of the business, the firms are willing to increase their ITIL
processes. The key findings of the study recommend that the application of Lean Six Sigma methodology is to resolve the problems
like cost reduction and quality improvement. A Lean Six Sigma application in IT sector is popular, and researchers used this
application in the development of IT sector. Despite various approaches involved in lean six sigma applications in the service sector
but the application in service delivery particular to ITSM is limited. The findings of the study suggested that the implementation of

lean six sigma in software applications support service sector that increases the business efficiency and also evaluate the potential
benefits of the ITIL processes in firms.

In the competitive world, there is a necessity to implement the manipulation in the process for the successful
development of the firm. The current study reported that whether the implementation of lean principle is useful or not and further
reported that what critical success factors (CSFs) is necessary for the development of Information Technology (IT) sector. This
study used the model case study of defense industry organization implementing their tools and techniques for fielding, development,
and testing. Secondary data collected, and non-experimental quantitative data used for analyzing whether the lean is applicable or
not. The findings of the study determined the research results based on the statistical tests of difference between the existed
PostLean schedule and PreLean schedule. Furthermore, the research also examined the nine CSFs to the successful execution of
lean philosophies. Using these nine CSFs, seven plyometric CSFs obtained as an implementation model. Transformational
leadership, customer-centric culture, heuristic communication, integrated synergy, recursive improvement, team trust and enterprise
incorporation is the seven critical success factors models examined in this study. Further, results of this study model in the
application of the lean principle which supports the development of both IT and Non-IT sector, commercial as well as industrial
sector. The findings recommend that IT sector is challenging and highly variable, there is a necessary to adopting a lean principle
for their achievement.

combine the capability of Information Technology (IT) sector with business strategies. Although studies researched the ebusinesses performance in technological viewpoint or based on the conceptual framework, this study used 1000 large IT companies
in Taiwan are selected for the identification process. The validity of the research hypothesis analyzed by using the Structural
equation modeling. The key findings of the study could involve the identification of IT capability in e-business field by using a
technology-organization-environment framework. Furthermore, the study estimates some factors which are involved in the influence
of IT capability in e-business field such as competitive pressure, IT human resources, IT infrastructure, partnership quality, top
management support and IT maturity. The implementation of strategies in IT sector which is affected by IT capability. The present

The present competitive world, Information Technology (IT) sector play an important role in the development of the
economy. The current study revealed that the services of IT regarding support and delivery of IT operations and activities for
satisfying the requirements of business and also manage the organization’s IT infrastructure. IT services give an output for the
development of the organization, such output is utilized by other sectors for their development and also act a significant role in the
services-based economy. In this present study analyzed the IT service industries growth by various theories of competition,
innovation, and production. Further in this study, 25 organisations were used to analysed the total factor productivity growth in IT
services industries of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) countries from the period between
1995 to 2007 and the performance metric calculated by using Malmquist productivity index (MPI) and data envelopment analysis

(DEA) is measured by using measurement methodology. The complete analysis is carried out by using MPI into three components
such as scale change (for demand fluctuation), efficiency change (for catch-up) and technical change (for innovation).When
compared to other industries, IT service industries are attained the long-term stability and growth in the whole service area and also
in the IT economy is determined. The perspective obtained from multiple analysis indicated that IT service industries are known to
be an innovator who can make the technological progress. These progress are known as a key attribute which results in
improvement in productivity. Even though these changes have a negative influence on the efficiency and these changes are
depends on client decision. The present study findings concluded the implications of IT service industries in both industry and
country levels are taken and gives recommendations for formulating the strategy and policy making for organization’s development.
