ITIL presents Technical Management as a "function". It plays an important role in the management of the IT infrastructure.
Many Technical Management activities are embedded in various other ITIL processes - but not all Technical Management activities. For this reason, at IT Process Maps we decided to introduce a Technical Management process as part of the ITIL Process Map which includes the Technical Management activities not covered in any other ITIL process.
Technical Management activities embedded in other processes are shown there, with responsibility assigned to the Technical Analyst role.
The process overview of ITIL Technical Management shows the key information flows (see Fig. 1).
No sub-processes are specified for ITIL Technical Management.
