    What is ISO/IEC 20000-1:2018?

    ISO/IEC 20000-1:2018 sets the requirements for an IT Service Management System to be developed. Organisations conforming to the Standard can perform consistently as strategic objectives are aligned to each client Service Level Agreement (SLA).

    Incident and problem management solutions are guided through a bespoke methodology. This includes ensuring client satisfaction, assisting clients with the reasoning behind any SLA breaches (downtime, etc.), and use of efficient communication channels. This will allow for challenges and relevant escalations to be documented and controlled. The Standard is closely aligned to the Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL).
