ITIL V3 and ASL: Sound Guidance for Application Management and Application Development
Off late, the Office of Government Commerce (OGC) released a new version of ITIL. Aspects of Application Management are to be found in all five volumes of the core guidance. In this paper, the interfaces with another IT framework, the Application Services Library, are more described. There are both similarities and differences between ITIL and ASL. Both frameworks recognize added value in the other and the ASL BiSL Foundation and TSO, the publisher of ITIL, have produced this white paper in order to provide guidance and understanding about the synergy and distinctness of each framework.
