Problem Management is responsible for the management of all Problems in the IT infrastructure. The process includes root cause analysis and arriving at the resolution of Problems. Problem Management remains responsible until resolutions are implemented via Change Management and Release Management.
Problem Management provides value to an organization by avoiding, reducing and mitigating the adverse business impact of Problems. This allows services to be more available and to be more robust.
