More information about ITIL
What is ITIL?
IT Infrastructure Library, or ITIL, is an information technology service management (ITSM) approach that guides organisations and individuals in its use of IT. ITIL is based upon best practices in IT service management.
Primarily adoped by IT operations departments in larger organisations, ITIL helps organisations deliver services in a customer-focused, quality-driven, and economical way through the practical and efficient use of IT tools throughout the service management lifecycle.
History of ITIL
ITIL was originally developed by the British Central Computing and Telecommunications Agency (CCTA). Further development of the ITIL framework has since been given to AXELOS, who is also responsible for the development of the PRINCE2 method.
ITIL 4 was published by AXELOS in February 2019. ITIL 4 embraces the latest trends in technologies and service management. It provides a flexible basis to support organisations as they undergo digital transformation and integrate digital technology into all areas of their business.
Extensive research by AXELOS, involving a diverse group of stakeholders (+2,000), has consistently proven the value of ITIL for use in business. ITIL enables transformation and helps organisations realize value.
ITIL is supported by a certification scheme that enables practitioners to demonstrate their abilities in adopting and adapting the framework to address their specific needs.
What is new in ITIL v4?
ITIL v4 was released in February 2019. Several notable changes have been made between ITL v3 and its latest iteration.
ITIL 4 expands on previous versions by providing a practical and flexible basis to support organisations on their journey to the new world of digital transformation.
ITIL 4 focuses on the Service Value System (SVS), which provides a holistic approach to the use of IT service in delivering business value. ITIL v4 focus on the co-creation of value through service relationships.
The updated ITIL 4 framework focuses on facilitating value co-creation through the SVS. The SVS helps businesses understand how different components and activities can work together in any organisation to facilitate value creation through IT-enabled services.
The ITIL Service Value System contains 5 core components: the service value chain, practices, guiding principles, governance, and continual improvement.
ITIL 4 also define Four Dimensions, that describe a balanced focus to the SVS. The four dimensions are: organizations and people, information and technology, partners and suppliers, value streams and processes.
For people familiar with agile software development or DevOps, ITIL 4 will be familiar since it has deliberately adopted some of the concepts and terminology from both the Agile and DevOps worlds.
