A multi-user license to the latest ITIL® Service Operation guidance

ITIL® provides guidance on the provision of quality IT services, and on the processes needed to support them. The aim of the service operation stage of the ITIL® service lifecycle is to coordinate and carry out the processes required to deliver and manage services to business users and customers, and to manage the technology used to deliver and support services.

If you are looking to provide access to some or all of the core ITIL® books to a large ITSM team, multi-user access is often a very cost-effective way of each member of staff accessing the content. 

ITIL® 2011 Service Operation describes best practice for managing services in supported environments, and provides guidance which includes:

  • How to maintain stability in service operation
  • Process guidelines, methods and tools for reactive and proactive control perspectives
  • Knowledge to allow better decision-making relating to:
    • managing the availability of services
    • controlling demand
    • optimising capacity utilisation
    • scheduling of operations
    • avoiding or resolving service incidents and managing problems
  • New models and architectures such as:
    • shared services
    • utility computing
    • web services
    • mobile commerce to support service operation.

Other topics covered include event management, request fulfilment, problem management and access management processes, service desk functions, technical management functions, IT operations management functions, and application management functions.

Summary of updates

The concepts in ITIL® 2011 have been updated for clarity and consistency, without affecting the overall message, ensuring every stage of the service lifecycle remains focused on the business case, and relates to all the companion process elements that follow. ITIL® 2011 is fully aligned with MSP®, M_o_R®, PRINCE2® and P3O®.

  • Process flows have been updated or added for all processes including request fulfilment, access management and event management
  • Key principles including guidance around service requests and request models, and proactive problem management have been clarified
  • The publication has been updated to explain how basic events flow into filters and rule engines to produce meaningful event information
  • The relationship between application management activities versus application development activities is also clarified
  • Other clarifications include an expanded section on problem analysis techniques, procedure flow for incident matching and further guidance for escalating incidents to problem management
  • In addition, the guidance for managing physical facilities has been expanded

It is recommended that ITIL® 2011 Service Operation is used in conjunction with the other core ITIL® publications.

Explanation of concurrent multi-user licenses

A concurrent multi-user license enables a number of people to access the full range of ITIL® material simultaneously in its full online format. Multi-user access to the material is by IP authentication, password and username, or referral link, which means that any person using these methods will be able to access the material, up to the maximum number of simultaneous users permitted by your license. As all users of ITIL® material within an organization do not necessarily need to access it simultaneously, a multi-user license can be a very cost-effective option. A license covering one concurrent user, for example, may support between 10 and 15 users inside your organization, depending on the frequency and timing of each user’s access of the material. 

We can, and often do, supply multi-user licenses for larger organizations which may need hundreds of staff to access the material. Please contact us for a price and any specific information you may need in considering this purchase.
