  • 2. ITIL Presentation Greg Charles – Computer Associates {Handout provided} • Best practices in service management in an increasingly complex environment. • Approaches currently in use o Business as usual – “Firefighting” o Legislation – “Forced” o Best Practice Focused • Legislation doesn’t always make service delivery better. Best practices do. (Examples – Quality & Control models, process frameworks • What is not defined cannot be controlled • What is not controlled cannot be measured • What is not measured cannot be improved. o Define  Improve o Measure  Control and Stabilize • ITIL  Information Technology Infrastructure Library: A seven book series that guides business users through the planning, delivery and management of quality IT services. Service Support and Service Delivery are the two key components most predominantly utilized. • Service desk should be single point of contact for all customers. • Major components – Service Desk, Incident Management, Change Management (90% of all incidents or outages are a result of known changes), Release Management, Configuration Management. • There should be no software distributed other than through the IT Department. • Service Delivery – Availability Management, Capacity Management, Service Level Management, Financial Management for IT Services, IT Service Continuity Management. • What is ITIL all about: o Aligning IT services with business requirements. o A set of best practices, not a methodology o Providing guidance … • CobIT Domains o Plan & Organize o Monitor o Acquire & Implement o Deliver & Support • 17 of the CobIT processes are contained in the ITIL processes. • COSO – Defines high-level policies • CobiT – Defines the control structures • ITIL – Defines best practices
