ISO 20000:2005

ISO 20000 is the world's first international standard for IT Service Management. ISO/IEC 20000 is an international IT standard that allows companies to demonstrate excellence and prove best practice in IT management. The standard ensures companies can achieve evidence-based benchmarks to continuously improve their delivery of IT services. ISO/IEC 20000 was released in 2005 based on the IT infrastructure library (ITIL®) best practice framework, and updated in 2011.

The standard is intended for organizations who provide managed IT services such as infrastructure and/or applications support; this can be both for external delivery e.g. to clients who have outsourced their IT support, as well as for internal IT groups. A certificate issued by third party registrar to demonstrates that your IT management system has been certified against requirements of ISO 20000 requirements. Implementation of ISO 20000-1 by setting up of internal processes gives confidence to customers about the delivering capability through use of IT infrastructure.
