ISO/IEC 20000

Overview

ISO/IEC 20000 is the first international standard for IT service management that essentially allows organizations to demonstrate excellence and prove best practice in IT service management. It is based on and intended to supersede the earlier BS 15000.

ISO/IEC 20000, like its BS 15000 predecessor, was originally developed to reflect best practice guidance contained within the ITIL®(Information Technology Infrastructure Library) framework, although it equally supports other IT service management frameworks and approaches including Microsoft Operations Framework and components of ISACA's COBITframework.

The standard allows IT service provider organizations to achieve conformance to a service management system which requires them to continually improve their delivery of IT services. ISO/IEC 20000 was first released in 2005 and is now at the
second edition ISO/IEC 20000 Certification Roadmap
