Why use the best practices of ITIL?
Better Customer Services -
ITIL will enable you to deliver better services tailored to the specific needs of your customers. By offering services which have been designed and developed in consultation with the customer, based upon effective and appropriate underlying principles, the customer's working practices, goals and objectives can be more readily matched. The IT function is then perceived within your organisation as a business enabler.
Better Cost Effectiveness -
Each book within the ITIL series has been designed to facilitate the quality management of IT services, and of the IT infrastructure, in the organisation. This best practice approach is intended to assist organisations to provide a quality IT service within a business environment affected by budgetary constraints, skill shortages, system complexity, rapid change, current and future user requirements and growing user expectations.
Better Motivation and Productivity -
By encouraging staff to view IT service management as a recognised professional skill, especially through the qualifications and training available, competence sets can be readily defined and staff will focus on the right tasks, ultimately making them more effective in their work performance.
Who Uses ITIL? -
The ITIL approach has also been adopted by hundreds of organisations world-wide, including Microsoft, IBM, Barclays Bank, HSBC, Guinness and Procter & Gamble.
