ITIL / IT Service Management Deployment

The Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL) is a set of best practices for IT Service Management (ITSM) that focuses on aligning IT services with the needs of business. Effective adoption of ITIL / ITSM enables IT organizations and their business customers to operate seamlessly as strategic partners. With effective deployment of ITIL / ITSM, IT departments can provide categorized IT services with clearly defined performance levels to meet the growing demands of their business customers.

Resch Group possesses the expertise and vast experience in ITIL / ITSM and helps organizations establish an overall ITSM strategy that is aligned with the demands of the business. We help structure and define IT services and service performance levels, and work closely with both IT and the business in implementing these services.

We recommend that organizations identify their biggest service challenges within the 5 phases of the ITIL service lifecycle and focus on optimizing them first. Taking on all ITIL services within the 5 lifecycle phases is usually far too aggressive for a typical organization. Below is a summary of the 5 ITIL lifecycle phases and their corresponding services:
