Services include IT related assets, accessibility, and resources that deliver value and benefits to lines of business. ITIL framework objectives include the delivery of service offerings, as well as meeting customer needs, and achieving business. Despite the individuality of each business, ITIL provides guidelines for achieving these objectives and measuring success.
ITIL Service Design focuses on designing service offerings to meet both business and customer needs. The Service Design publication is made up of eight separate processes:
- Service Level Management involves planning for and defining organizational service delivery targets, and then measuring performance against those targets. Service level agreements (SLAs) are often used to spell out service level goals for easy measurement and comparisons against actual service performance.
- Service Catalog Management involves making sure that there is an updated service catalog available with accessibility to services customers require to remain productive.
- Capacity Management ensures that systems are always operating at enough capacity to meet business needs.
- Availability Management entails making sure that services are always available to the customer.
- IT Service Continuity Management involves risk management and ensuring business continuity.
- Information Security Management includes system and data protection, as well as protection for the people who use the systems and data. Detecting, limiting and preventing intrusions, as well as limiting damage and correcting problems are all aspects of information security management.
- Supplier Management monitors all supplier relationships, including whether parties are adhering to contracts and agreements.
- Design Coordination involves taking a all-inclusive view into managing the service design phase – looking at resource availability and service needs to determine if the design is optimum and efficient.
