ITSM Implementation using ITIL or ISO 20000

With technology such an integral part of every bit of a business, the line between business and IT is blurred, perhaps even non-existent. ITSM is no longer a “nice to have,” or something that only the service desk does. ITSM is the means by which IT delivers business capability. ITSM therefore is the enabler for realizing real business value from the use of technology.

  • ITSM supports business agility and responsiveness by promoting standardization
  • ITSM enables the agility and responsiveness demanded by today’s business
  • ITSM cements the convergence of business and IT by enabling business capability through the effective use of technology

About the ITSM Frameworks and Standards

  • Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL): Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL) is a framework for managing IT as a service, with the aim of aligning IT services with business objectives. ITIL is the most commonly implemented ITSM framework in the world, in both the public and the private sectors, and is acknowledged as best practice for service management in organizations in all industries. ITSM is all about customers and how to deliver value to these customers.
  • ISO/IEC 20000: ISO/IEC 20000 is the internationally recognized standard for IT service management (ITSM) that enables IT organizations to ensure that their ITSM policies & procedures are in line with business objectives and with international best practices. ISO 20000 is a standard with clearly defined requirements that must be met in order to certify that a minimum of best practice standards is met.
