A quick guide to better IT Service Management

Many organizations 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 IsT Service Management system will enable your organization 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 organization is efficient, reliable, and trustworthy.

The ISO/IEC 20000 standard

This ISO 20000 book 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 programs, certification schemes, and the interrelationship of ISO 20000 with other standards, such as ISO 27001. The guide focuses on ISO 20000's customer-centric approach to ensure your IT service management processes are aligned with your business needs.

Specific benefits of ISO/IEC 20000

  • Improve supplier relationships and establish a stronger supply chain capable of delivering on your commitments.
  • Develop better employee coordination and foster team spirit leading to more efficient and effective service delivery.
  • Demonstrate the quality and reliability of your service management capability to existing and potential customers.

  • Ensure your IT service management processes align with the needs of your business and ultimately grow your business by improving your bottom line.

This pocket guide introduces the ISO/IEC 20000 standard and explains what your organization needs to do to achieve compliance.
