Overview Office of Govt Commerce in the UK owns trademark of ITIL as the ITIL framework evolved from their efforts to document how successful organizations approached service management. ITIL describes good practices and best practices, including those documented by Public frameworks, Standards, wide-industry best practices etc
Terminology ITSM – A set of specialized organizational capabilities for providing value to customers in the form of services Service – A means of delivering value to customers by facilitating outcomes customers want to achieve without the ownership of specific costs and risks. E.g. Pizza delivery service, Payroll service Service owner – The person who is accountable for the delivery of a specific service.
Terminology Process – A set of coordinated activities combining and implementing resources and capabilities in order to produce an outcome and provide value to customers or stakeholders. E.g. Availability management process Process owner – The person responsible for ensuring that the process is fit for the desired purpose and is accountable for the outputs of that process. Functions – A team or group of people and the tools they use to carry out one or more processes or activities. E.g. Service Desk, IT Operations management
Terminology RACI chart – Connecting processes and functions by the way of defining clear roles and responsibilities
ITIL Lifecycle Phases
Service Strategy Define strategic objectives of the IT organization Stop and think WHY something has to be done, before thinking HOW Service Package Core Service Package Supporting Services Package Service Level Package
Service Strategy Creating Value
Service Strategy - Processes Service Portfolio Management It contains 3 service groups – Service Pipeline, Service Catalogue, Retired Services Balancing Service Portfolio – Run the Business, Grow the Business, Transform the Business
Service Strategy - Processes Financial Management It manages conflicting perspectives of IT and Business in terms of IT capabilities and Business opportunities Three fundamental activities – Funding/Budget, Accounting, Charging/Chargeback
Service Strategy - Processes Demand Management Objective: Identification and analysis of Patterns of Business Activity and user profiles; And maintaining business and customer satisfaction while reducing excess capacity Two ways to influence or manage Demand Physical/Technical constraints – e.g. restrict number of connections, users etc Financial chargeback – e.g. extra charges for over capacity quotas
Service Design Concerned primarily with the design of IT services Designs to convert strategic objectives into Services
Service Design - Processes Service Level Management (Design phase) Primary goal is to ensure that an agreed level of IT service is provided for all current IT services, and that future services are delivered to agreed achievable targets. Service Level Agreement vs Operational Level Agreement Three types of SLAs – Customer based SLA, Service based SLA, Multi-level SLA(Corporate level, Customer level, Service level)
Service Design - Processes Supplier Management Primary goal is to manage suppliers and services they supply, to provide seamless quality of IT service to the business and ensure that value for money is obtained. Types of Supplier Agreements – Co-sourcing, Multi- sourcing, Business Process Outsourcing, Knowledge Process Outsourcing etc Supplier and contract information is stored in Supplier and Contract Database (SCD).
Service Design - Processes Service Catalogue Management Primary goal is to ensure that a Service Catalogue is produced, maintained and always contains accurate information. Two Types Business Service Catalogue - e.g. various Business Processes Technical Service Catalogue – e.g. Hardware, Software, DB, etc They two interact to provide services to customers
Service Design - Processes Capacity Management Primary goal is to ensure that the current and future capacity and performance demands of customers regarding IT service provision are delivered. Main activities Performance monitoring Application sizing Tuning Capacity planning Reporting, etc
Service Design - Processes Availability Management Primary goal is to ensure that the level of service availability delivered in all services is matched to or exceeds the current and future agreed needs of the business. Incident life cycle
Service Design - Processes IT Service Continuity Management Primary goal is to support the overall Business Continuity Management by ensuring that the required IT infrastructure and the IT service provision can be recovered within required and agreed time scales.
Service Design - Processes Information Security Management Primary goal is to align IT security with Business security and ensure that information security is effectively managed in all services and IT Service Management activities. Three major aspects Confidentiality Integrity Availability
Service Transition It focuses on the vulnerable transition from Design phase to Operation phase of a new/enhanced service. It is critical as technical/functional errors NOT found during this phase will result in significantly higher impact levels to the business and/or IT infrastructure and will usually cost much more to fix once the Service is in operation.
Service Transition - Processes Knowledge Management The primary purpose is to improve efficiency by reducing the need to rediscover knowledge. This requires accessible, quality and relevant data and information available to staff. Moving from data to wisdom Data Information (Who, what, when, where?) Knowledge (How?) Wisdom (Why?)
Service Transition - Processes Service Asset and Configuration Management The goal is to support the agreed IT service provision by managing, storing and providing information about Configuration Items and Service Assets throughout their life cycle. This assists in providing logical model of the infrastructure, including the relevant relationships and dependencies that exist.
Service Transition - Processes Change Management The goal is to ensure that standardized methods and procedures are used for controlled, efficient and prompt handling of all changes. Various types of changes Normal change – A change that follows all steps of change process Standard change – A pre-approved change that is low risk and relatively common, e.g. password reset request. Usually logged as Service Request. Emergency change – A change that must be introduced as soon as possible.
Service Transition - Processes Change Advisory Board(CAB) – A group that provides expert advice to the Change Manager.
Service Transition - Processes Release and Deployment Management Goal is to deploy new releases into production, provide transition support to service operation, and enable its effective use in order to deliver value to the customer. Various options for deployment of releases Big bang Phased approach Push approach Pull approach Automated Manual
Service Transition - Processes Service Validation and Testing Main goal is to assure fitness for purpose and fitness for use
Service Operation Primary objective is to enable effectiveness and efficiency in delivery and support of IT services. Strategic objectives are ultimately realized through Service Operations, therefore making it critical phase. Terminology: Incident vs Problem vs Error Incident is any occurrence which may cause interruption or degradation to an IT service Problem is the unknown underlying cause of one or more incidents Error is the known underlying cause of one or more incidents
Service Operation - Functions Service Desk Function Service desk types Call centre – Handling/logging large volumes of calls. Low first-time resolution rate for calls and requests. Help desk – Manage and coordinate incidents Service desk – Wide variety of services offered. High first-time resolution rate for calls and requests. Service desk structures: Local, Central, Follow-the-sun
Service Operation - Functions Technical Management Goal is to plan, implement and maintain a stable technical infrastructure to support the organizations business processes Examples of functions – Mainframe, Server, Network, Storage, Database, etc
Service Operation - Functions IT Operations Management Goal is to perform daily operational activities needed to manage the IT infrastructure Two types IT Operations control Console management Job scheduling Backup and restore Facilities management Data centers Recovery sites
Service Operation - Functions Application Management Goal is to help design, implement and maintain stable applications to support the organizations business processes, e.g. HR apps, Business apps, etc
Service Operation - Processes Event Management Goal is to provide the capability to detect events, make sense of them and determine the appropriate control action. Different types events: Events that signify Regular operation Warning Exception
Service Operation - Processes Incident Management Goal is to restore normal service operation as quickly as possible and minimize adverse impact on business operations. Setting priority of an incident Impact + Urgency = Priority Escalation Functional/Horizontal escalation Hierarchical/Vertical escalation
Service Operation - Processes Problem Management Main goal is to eliminate recurring incidents, and prevent problems/incidents from happening Difference from Incident management: Incident management only addresses the symptoms, while Problem management addresses the root-cause of the symptom so that incident doesnt recur.
Service Operation - Processes Request Fulfillment Goal is to fulfill requests from end users using consistent and repeatable methods It is related to fulfilling standard changes which are pre- approved for implementation, e.g. password reset request
Service Operation - Processes Access Management Goal is to provide capabilities for the granting of authorized users the right to use a service while preventing access to non-authorized users.
Continual Service Improvement Goal is to ensure continual improvements to IT Service Management Processes and IT Services The Continual Service Improvement Model
Continual Service Improvement - Processes Service Level Management It proactively seeks and implements improvements to the level of service delivered to customers and users
Continual Service Improvement - Processes Service Measurement and Reporting Goal is to coordinate the design of metrics, data collection and reporting activities from other processes and functions Three types of metrics Technology metrics Process metrics Service metrics
Continual Service Improvement - Processes CSI (7 step) Improvement Process Goal is to coordinate a structured approach for improvements to IT services and ITSM processes The Deming Cycle is used as foundation for continual improvement Plan(design) Do(pilot) Check(results) Act(rollout) 7 step improvement process Define what you should measure Define what you can measure Gather the data Process the data (Frequency? Format? etc) Analyze the data relationships/trends/targets met etc Present and use the information, assessment, action plans etc Implement corrective action
