What is ITIL®?
ITIL® Foundation provides a general overview of the IT Service Management Lifecycle and its supporting processes, functions and roles.ITIL®: Overview and Benefits
ITIL® advocates that IT services must be aligned to the needs of the business and underpin the core business processes. It provides guidance to organisations on how to use IT as a tool to facilitate business change, transformation and growth.
The ITIL® best practices are currently detailed within five core publications which provide a systematic and professional approach to the management of IT services, enabling organisations to deliver appropriate services and continually ensure they are meeting business goals and delivering benefits.
The five core guides map the entire ITIL® Service Lifecycle, beginning with the identification of customer needs and drivers of IT requirements, through to the design and implementation of the service into operation and finally, on to the monitoring and improvement phase of the service.
ITIL® provides a systematic and professional approach to the management of IT service provision.
Adopting its guidance offers users a huge range of benefits that include:
- reduced costs;
- improved IT services through the use of proven best practice processes;
- improved customer satisfaction through a more professional approach to service delivery;
- standards and guidance;
- improved productivity;
