International IT Service Management Standard
1. The first global quality standard devoted exclusively to IT support and maintenance is the ISO/IEC 20000:2005 IT Service Management System (ITSM). The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) and the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) released the ISO 20000 Standard in 2005.
2. Business owners and clients can identify and manage critical processes related to IT service delivery with the help of the ISO 20000:2005 Standard. A few compliance requirements are outlined in the IT Organisations' ISO 20000:2005 Certification, including:
- Procedures for managing IT services to improve service delivery.
- A quality management system to oversee the entire service lifecycle from the viewpoint of the end user.
3. The standard includes a number of management practices designed to make your delivery of IT services more effective (both to those within your business and to your customers). You can prove your company follows best practices with ISO 20000, which will raise the caliber of the IT services you provide and give you the methodology and framework you need to manage your ITSM.
4. Any firm, no matter how big or little, in any industry or region of the world that depends on IT services is eligible for the ISO/IEC 20000 Certification. Both internal and external IT service providers, such as IT departments and IT outsourcing companies, can benefit greatly from the standard.
5. Some of the top IT-dependent industries, including business process outsourcing, telecommunications, finance, and the public sector, are already seeing favorable effects from the standard.
