Omtale Implementing ITIL Change and Release Management
The Business-Focused, Best-Practice Guide to Succeeding with ITIL Change and Release Management ITIL (R) (Information Technology Infrastructure Library (R)) can help organizations streamline and integrate their operations, dramatically improving efficiency and delivering greater business value. For the first time, there's a comprehensive best-practice guide to succeeding with two of the most crucial and challenging parts of ITIL: change and release management. Leading IBM (R) ITIL expert and author Larry Klosterboer shares solid expertise gained from real implementations across multiple industries. He helps you decide where to invest, avoid ITIL pitfalls, and build successful, long-term processes that deliver real return on investment. You'll find detailed guidance on each process, integrated into a comprehensive roadmap for planning, implementation, and operation-a roadmap available nowhere else. Klosterboer offers in-depth coverage of the crucial issues every implementer will face, including make-or-break challenges most consultants can't or won't talk about. For example, he demonstrates how to set a reasonable project scope, migrate data, execute successful pilot programs, and continually improve quality once ITIL practices are in place. This book's practical insights will be invaluable to every IT executive, professional, and user who wants to bring their current change and release practices in line with ITIL-and transform them from a source of frustration into a source of value.
