IT Service Management (ITSM) refers to the activities involved in implementing, managing, and delivering the lifecycle of IT services. ITSM is used to make sure the right mix of people, processes, and technology is in place to provide business value. IT Service Management doesn't just help with solving day-to-day issues. It can increase value and cost efficiency and reduce the impact of incidents on the business. IT Service Management is the art of making businesses run.

ITIL® is used by millions of professionals all around the World, and ITIL® has been adopted by thousands of organisations, such as NASA, Microsoft, and HSBC. ITIL® is a set of practices, which focus on aligning IT services with the needs of the business. ITIL® provides comprehensive and practice guidance to establish a service management system. The ITIL® Framework will help businesses and professionals get optimal value from IT and digital services. The main focus of ITIL® is to maximise value to customers by aligning IT resources with business needs.

ITIL® 4 is the latest version of the ITIL® Framework, which was released in February 2019. ITIL® 4 is highly value-centric and focuses on bringing different stakeholders in the organisation together to create value for the customer. With new frameworks growing in popularity, such as SIAM™ and VeriSM™, the previous version of ITIL® (ITIL® V3) had to step up its game and improve the way it dealt with challenges brought on by digital disruption. ITIL® 4, the current version of ITIL®, takes all of the best parts from ITIL® V3 and creates a framework that focuses on delivering tailor-made solutions for organisations through "practices" instead of "processes." Also, Agile, DevOps, and Digital Transformation all play a role in the new ITIL® 4 Framework. The key elements of ITIL® 4 are the four dimensions, the guiding principles, the move from processes (ITIL® V3) to practices (ITIL® 4), and the service value system.
