About ITIL

ITIL was first established as a concept back in the 1980's. It has since evolved into two other carnations; Version 2 and Version 3, commonly referred to as ITIL v3. Each version revised towards current trends and technologies. The versions of ITIL are:

  • ITIL Version 1 (released 1980's)
  • ITIL Version 2 (released 1990's)
  • ITIL Version 3 (released 2007)

ITIL Version 2 is grouped into logical sets rather than the 30 volumes that were part of the original ITIL Version 1. Each set is a group of correlated process guidelines to match different parts of IT management, applications and services. Service Management is by far the most commonly used and understood of the ITIL publications. The overall ITIL structure expands to far greater lengths in version 2.

ITIL Version 2

The 8 groups enclosed in ITIL Version 2 are:

1. Service Delivery
2. Service Support
3. ICT Infrastructure Management
4. Security Management
5. The Business Perspective
6. Application Management
7. Software Asset Management
8. Planning to Implement Service Management

ITIL Version 3

ITIL version 3 takes the framework one step further by refining processes and terms to align with today's standards. The 5 groups comprising ITIL Version 3 are:

1. Service Strategy

As the centre and origin point of the ITIL Service Lifecycle, the Service Strategy volume provides guidance on clarification and prioritization of service provider investments in services

ITIL Processes

2. Service Design

The ITIL Service Design framework provides good practice guidance on the design of IT services, processes, and other aspects of the service management effort. Significantly, design within ITIL is understood to encompass all elements relevant to technology service delivery, rather than focusing solely on design of the technology itself

3. Service Transition

Service transition relates to the delivery of services required by the business into live/operational use, and often encompasses the "project" side of IT rather than "BAU" (Business As Usual)

4. Service Operation

Best practice for achieving the delivery of agreed levels of services both to end-users and the customers (where "customers" refer to those individuals who pay for the service and negotiate the SLAs)

5. Continual Service Improvement

The goal of Continual Service Improvement is to align and realign IT Services to changing business needs by identifying and implementing improvements to the IT services that support the Business Processes

Note: ISO/IEC20000 and ITIL Version 3 are quite different. ISO20000 does not recognise assets which include management organisation, process, knowledge, people, information, applications or infrastructure. Instead, ICO/IEC20000 deals with the management of financial assets. These are quite different from the assets managed through the ITIL.
