ITIL

You may have heard about "ITIL" within the IT world. It is a significant strategic objective.

ITIL stands for Information Technology Infrastructure Library. It is simply a set of ideas that lay out concepts and techniques for managing any technology infrastructure, development, and operation. Over the past few years, ITIL has become widely accepted as the leading best practice standards for managing technology. It is technology agnostic so it works in all situations. 

ITIL helps to improve our services. Some improvement examples are: 1) better control over our changes, 2) advance notifications regarding changes and information services events, 3) performance metrics, 4) service level agreements and many more service enhancements that improve your technology experiences.
