The Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL) is the most popularly adopted best practice implementation available today and includes an IT management framework emphasizing management from the perspectives of both the business and IT service consumers. The process of implementing ITIL, however, can be quite daunting to the uninitiated. All too often, organizations miss the opportunity to implement ITIL initiatives due to the perception that they have too small a budget or too few resources. In truth, however, ITIL is specifically designed to reduce costs and improve the performance of existing staff and hardware investments. By utilizing a pragmatic approach to implementing ITIL, significant improvements to an IT infrastructure can be achieved with a quick return on investment, motivated staff involvement.
