ITIL Overview

ITIL is the most widely accepted approach to IT service management in the world. Organizations use its proven best practices to run their business from strategy to daily reality. Millions of IT professionals successfully drive their career thanks to ITIL certification scheme. ITIL offers common concepts and vocabulary, aligned with international standards, to ease collaboration in a multicultural and interconnected environment. ITIL turns the challenges of the digital age into competitive edge.

ITIL V1 was initially developed in the 1980s as a library of several books, with each one describing a process. Over the next decade, it was used mainly by British Government agencies. At the turn of the century, ITIL V2 became the cornerstone for service management, with two core publications covering ten processes and the service desk. The natural progression of best practices and the need to streamline and improve the value for money of IT services led to the creation of ITIL V3. Two editions were released, one in 2007 and another in 2011. These provided ways to manage the end-to-end lifecycle of services with 26 processes, supported by four organizational functions and aligned with ISO 20000 standards. This was followed in 2016 by the publication of ITIL Practitioner, which introduced guiding principles to facilitate the adoption of ITIL.

The latest iteration of the framework is ITIL 4. Launched in 2019, ITIL 4 has evolved from the previous version by re-shaping much of the established ITSM practices in the wider context of customer experience, value streams and digital transformation, as well as embracing new ways of working, such as Lean, Agile, and DevOps.
