ITIL Based Tools

Calsoft’s IT Security Services include:

Calsoft follows ITIL (Information Technology Infrastructure Library) standards for all our service offerings

The IT Infrastructure Library documents industry best practice guidance. It has proved its value from the very beginning. Initially, the Central Computer and Telecommunications Agency (CCTA) collected information on how various organizations addressed Service Management, analyzed this and filtered those issues that would prove useful to CCTA and to its Customers in UK Central Government. Other organizations found that the guidance was generally applicable and markets outside of Government were very soon targeted by the service industry.

Being a framework, ITIL describes the contours of organizing Service Management. The models show the goals, general activities, inputs and outputs of the various processes, which can be incorporated within IT organizations. ITIL focuses on best practice that can be utilized in different ways according to the need.

Thanks to this framework of proven best practices, the IT Infrastructure Library can be used within organizations with existing methods and activities in Service Management. By emphasizing the relationships between the processes, any lack of communication and co-operation between various IT functions can be eliminated or minimized.

ITIL provides a proven method for planning common processes, roles and activities with appropriate reference to each other and how the communication lines should exist between them.
