Are you up-to-date with ISO/IEC 20000?

ISO/IEC 20000 is an important international standard for IT service providers, but if you don’t keep up-to-date with the standard, then you may as well be sitting in a dark room with your eyes shut and the world passing by without you in it.

A little extreme I know, but keeping up-to-date with the ISO/IEC 20000 is an important part of the standard. The standard was revised earlier this year in April 2011 and includes a number of changes:

  • An expanded introduction, additional requirements and updated definitions section
  • Closer alignment with ISO 9001 QMS requirements and ISO/IEC 27001 ISMS requirements
  • New requirements for the management of new or changed services have been added
  • A refinement of the scope of the SMS and the oversight (governance) process managed by other organisations
  • Problem Management and Incident Management processes have been aligned with ITIL®v3
  • Revised and more in-depth requirements on supplier contracts
  • Added requirements on budgeting and accounting

To ensure you are up-to-date with these changes, then read the international standard – ISO20000 (ISO 20000) IT Service Management. This document contains both main parts of the revised and updated standard.

Make sure you’re up-to-date with the ISO/IEC 20000 Standard

For help on implementing the updated standard, take a look at Implementing Service Quality based on ISO/IEC 20000. This step-by-step management guide will benefit all who have a role in the implementation and certification process, giving a clear and detailed breakdown of the 2011 edition of the Standard.
