Page 1 Client Issues What converging global trends are encouraging IS organizations to adopt ITIL? What best practices can accelerate ITIL implementation and help to successfully deliver benefits? How can we combine and leverage different models? How can we use ITIL as a basis for IT optimization?

Page 5 Gartner View of ITIL ITIL is a well established, easily accessible, affordable process model for IT service management that is built around a set of best practices. A well- established service and consulting industry has been built around ITIL, especially in Europe. ITIL is better known for its back-office operational process definitions than for its application management processes. ITIL is based on defining best-practice processes for IT service delivery and support, rather than defining a broad-based control framework. ITIL is more- prescriptive about the tasks involved in those processes and, as such, its primary target audience is IT and service management. ITIL's structure enables incremental adoption, which facilitates continuous improvement. ITIL has a much narrower scope than CobiT (Control Objectives for Information and Related Technology), but CobiT and ITIL are not mutually exclusive and can be combined to provide a powerful IT governance, control and best-practice framework in IT service management.

Page 8 Combine CobiT and ITIL for Powerful IT Governance Control Objectives for Information and Related Technology (CobiT) was originally an IS audit tool oriented to risk mitigation. CobiT establishes what formal IS processes, practices and controls should be in place, and the minimum results they should predictably deliver. ITIL and CobiT can combine well together. ITIL maps reasonably neatly into the CobiT high-level governance and audit framework, but although they are trying to achieve different things, they are not contradictory and have few interface problems. CobiT is a complementary framework to ITIL. CobiT's processes and control objectives are segmented into four domains –Planning and Organization –Acquisition and Implementation –Delivery and Support –Monitoring.
Page 9 CobiT is based on established frameworks, such as the Software Engineering Institute's Capability Maturity Model, ISO 9000 and the Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL). Unlike ITIL, CobiT does not include process steps and tasks because it is a control framework rather than a process framework. CobiT focuses on what an enterprise needs to do, not how it needs to do it. ITIL is based on defining best-practice processes for IT service delivery and support, rather than defining a broad-based control framework. ITIL is more- prescriptive about the tasks involved in those processes and, as such, its primary target audience is IT and service management. Many of the CobiT processes — particularly those in the delivery and support domain — map well onto one or more ITIL processes, such as service level, configuration, problem, incident, or financial management. The development processes of the two frameworks are not linked and both would benefit from closer collaboration. However, they are unlikely to contradict each other in any substantive way.

It has more than 300 IS staff, started its two- year program in 2001 and has spent around 2.6 million euros on it. ■Results included a savings of nearly 3.5 million euros a year (approximately 7 percent of IS operating costs) through the identification of unused or underutilized resources like software licenses. This represented about 90 percent of the tangible savings formally identified to date. ■The IS organization is now billing around 1 million euros (approximately 2 percent of total billings) for services that were being delivered but were not being charged for. ■The IS organization's customer satisfaction rating went up from 6.8 to 7.6 out of 10.
Page 17 Seek opportunities to learn from and copy best-practice processes. IT service management will be a prerequisite for demonstrating business value. Success requires commitment and perseverance. Start now! IT service management requires fundamental cultural and behavioral change. Pay careful attention to organizational change management issues. Success in IT service management is based on repeatable processes. Use ITIL as the basis for IT operational processes and then focus on continually improving them. Recommendations Measure ICT costs and relate results to process analysis to find saving and improvement opportunities for optimization.
