ITSM Methodology

ITIL v3

ITIL (the IT Infrastructure Library) is a set of books and documents that are used to aid the implementation of IT Service Management. It provides a comprehensive framework of processes and best practice advice for IT Service Management.

All NextHope services are built within the ITIL v3 framework to apply industry best practices to customer’s IT environment. This lies on end-to-end ITIL processes from Design, Transition (Build) through Operation Services.
