A quick guide to better IT Service Management

Many organisations rely on a mishmash of different technologies and ad hoc working practices to deliver products and services. This makes it very difficult to make changes, measure effectiveness and improve service levels.

Better for you, better for your customers

Employing a structured IT Service Management system will enable your organisation to identify how to improve the service you deliver to your customers. The international standard for IT Service management is ISO/IEC 20000. Achieving compliance with this standard brings real operational benefits and shows new and potential customers that your organisation is efficient, reliable and trustworthy.

The ISO/IEC 20000 standard

This pocket guide is a handy reference to the key information on ISO/IEC 20000. It features an overview of the purpose of the standard and shows how to use it. It explains qualification programmes, certification schemes and the interrelationship of ISO20000 with other standards, such as ISO27001. The overall emphasis of the guide is on ISO20000's customer-driven approach to ensure your IT service management processes align with the needs of your business.
