Sterling, VA (PRWEB) July 19, 2006
Evergreen Systems today announced that it has released a new white paper exploring how to build the business case for ITIL and other IT process improvements. CEO, Don Casson, began exploration of the topic in June, via a techwebcast that was sponsored jointly by Hewlet-Packard and InformationWeek. Building the business case for ITIL has also been a source of discussion on Evergreen’s blog site, after Evergreen Vice President of Consulting, Joe Koester, began a four-part series on it.
The white paper references a number of data points taken from current research and enterprise IT process improvement case studies consistently documenting a 20-40% reduction in the effort required for ongoing IT operations, powered by the implementation of ITIL process improvements. The same research clearly links ITIL with strategic gains in customer service quality, accuracy and efficiency and IT risk and compliance work. The development of an ITIL strategy is also discussed and an incremental approach is recommended, one which starts with small steps but shows measurable gains quickly.
The white paper will be offered on Evergreen System’s web site, promoted in the ITSMF July journal and provided via a special offer for IT executives in Fortune 1000 enterprises through an online campaign. The white paper will also be listed in CIO’s online database of white papers. Copies can be obtained from the following URL:
