Evolution Of ITIL

Understanding The Evolution Of ITIL: Training Its Emergence As A Service Management Strategy

The Evolution…


In my previous article, I talked about all that you need to know about the IT Infrastructure library. In this article, I want to look at the evolution of ITIL also known as IT Infrastructure Library. Follow me as we look at this together in this article.


The early 1980s

At this period in world history, there is nothing like a standard for IT projects. Everything was done in such a way that people and organisations managed their projects the way they like. This leads to a high rate of abandoned projects among organisations.


At this stage, the UK government felt that something should be done about the lack of standardization for IT projects. They decided to do something about the lack of standards for projects. That is why the first set of ITIL books was published and it becomes the standard for IT projects.




This year, service delivery and support want to be introduced to IT Infrastructure Library. At this stage now, this new addition was seen as a major component of the IT infrastructure library. It is a known fact that when customers are not satisfied with your products and services or a way to retain their interest, the business will soon fold up.




At this stage in the evolution of ITIL, the service lifecycle was introduced. Service lifecycle becomes so important that projects have to be handled in an orderly manner. This also makes it very easy for all stakeholders to work together to achieve IT project goals.




There comes the introduction of business alignments to IT projects. What this emphasised is that there is no way the IT department can run a successful project without the input of the business community.


The IT community and the business community has to work together in order to deliver IT projects that will meet the need of customers.


There comes the game change. There was the introduction of the Service Value System into ITIL projects. It is indeed a system that makes IT Projects successful. I am not going to talk about SVS in this article. Just stick to this blog and I will give you the load down.
