Shift left with Service Automation by Tools4ever

In recent years, organizations have been working to promote self-service more and more. Instead of sending an email or calling the helpdesk, an employees can create a ticket in TOPdesk, search for a solution to their problem, etc. 

Employees are helped quicker and a more professional matter.

 However, the logged tickets still need to be manually processed by IT. It’s more like a “Chinese interface”

 How do you make sure that an employee, perhaps after approval, gets direct access to a part of the ERP system, gets a higher licence than the current E1 O365 licence and that permissions are revoked after a certain period to avoid accumulation?

How can your further streamline your process and realize Shift left? Which conditions apply to successfully implement this?
