ITIL Process Diagram


 

Chains across multiple ITIL processes illustrate the interaction of the different ITIL disciplines in practice. They make it easier to understand how the basic ideas behind ITIL find themselves translated into the ITIL processes.

 

ITIL Core Topics Explained: Process Chains within the IT Organization

No matter whether ITIL is presented in the form of a book or a conventional ITIL process diagram - it is always demanding not to lose one's way amongst the large number of individual processes (for example: "Where does the budget for this Change come from?"), as the user always has only one single page in a book or the description of one individual process in front of him.

Some ITIL disciplines appear to overlap each other, so that it is often not easy to decide where one process ends and another begins. In practice it must be ensured however, that the most important procedures – as for example the integration of new or changed application systems into the productive IT environment – function without friction, and that the participating processes are co-ordinated with each other in a seamless way.

It is exactly those important chains of processes that are visualized here. They help to get an insight into how the ITIL disciplines co-operate in practice:
