Most of the large enterprises implemented IT Infrastructure Library (ITIL) framework which describes how IT resources should be organized to deliver business value, process documentation, functions and roles of IT Service Management (ITSM). ITIL Version 3 adopted more of a lifecycle approach to service management.
Tool Kits were developed to effectively manage various facets of ITIL such as:

  • Service Design (Service Catalogue management/Availability Management/Capacity Management)
  • Service operations, (Service Desk, Event Management, Incident Management, Problem Management)
  • Service Transition (Change Management, Assets & Configuration Management)

Proactive event monitoring and management has become a vital function, helping simplify management of complex IT environments. To effectively perform these functions, we utilize tools, which perform alert notifications, and central points of control for process scheduling.
