ITIL outlines an extensive set of management procedures that are intended to support businesses in achieving both high financial quality and value in IT operations.
These procedures are supplier-independent and have been developed to provide guidance across the breadth of IT infrastructure, development, and operations.
ITIL is organized into a series of five volumes (the books): Service Strategy, Service Design, Service Transition, Service Operation and Continual Service Improvement. These in turn describe a closed loop feedback system that provides feedback throughout all areas of the lifecycle. The volumes continue to provide a framework of best practice disciplines that enable IT Services to be provided effectively.
The names ITIL and IT Infrastructure Library are Registered Trade Marks of AXELOS.
