ITIL是IT Infrastructure Library的縮寫,可翻譯成資訊技術基礎架構庫,是在1980中期由英國政府電腦暨電信局(CCTA)受委託發起,現已納入英國政府商務辦公室 OGC–the Office of Government Commerce)開發,用於規範IT服務管理的架構,提倡資源利用之最佳化、提昇資訊服務水準,許多跨國各大資訊廠商(如IBM、HP、Microsoft、CA等)也都參與並實踐其理想,ITIL所包含的內容非常完整,最初是由40本左右的手冊所構成,1990中期OGC為因應產業變更,並增加其閱讀性與實用性,重新規劃後產出ITIL Version 2.0(以下簡稱為ITIL V2),核心在於描述Service DeliveryService Support。到了2007年OGC為了因應快速發展變化的IT服務管理市場,推出最新的ITIL Version 3.0(以下簡稱為ITIL V3),以符合市場的實際需求。ITIL V3與V2的主要差別,在於引進服務生命週期(Service Life Cycle)模型,並修正了部分有關management 跟 processes的描述。

   因筆者主要熟悉 ITIL V2,以下就針對ITIL V2所描述之Service Delivery及Service Support的10項管理流程跟Service Desk做簡單的描述。
