Each ITIL® Key Element Guide provides an overview of each of the five elements of the ITIL® service lifecycle, and is written by the same team which wrote the main ITIL® core titles. Key Element Guide: ITIL Service Operation, 2011 Edition offers a concise summary of the contents of ITIL® 2011 Service Operation, reducing the core volume to its salient points.

The purpose of the service operation stage of the lifecycle is to coordinate and carry out the processes required to deliver and manage services to business users and customers, and to manage the technology used to deliver and support services.

ITIL 2011 Service Operation describes best practice for managing services in supported environments, and provides guidance which includes:

  • how to maintain stability in service operation;
  • process guidelines, methods and tools for reactive and proactive control perspectives;
  • knowledge to allow better decision-making relating to:
    • managing the availability of services,
    • controlling demand,
    • optimising capacity utilisation,
    • scheduling of operations,
    • avoiding or resolving service incidents and managing problems;
  • new models and architectures such as:
    • shared services,
    • utility computing,
    • web services,
    • mobile commerce to support service operation.

Other topics covered include event management, request fulfilment, problem management and access management processes, service desk functions, technical management functions, IT operations management functions, and application management functions.
