Centrata ITIL Accelerator

Centrata’s ITIL Accelerator ITIL (IT Infrastructure Library) is the most widely accepted approach to IT service management in the world. A great number of IT organizations are currently considering implementing ITIL (Information Technology Infrastructure Library) to manage the rapid change and high expectations facing IT today. Unfortunately, many organizations have struggled in the implementation of ITIL. After all, it’s only a set of guidelines and definitions, and just like so many standards and guidelines, ITIL isn’t an easily realizable magic bullet. There’s a lot of “what” but no “how.” In order to succeed and see results quickly, IT organizations need an actionable ITIL solution, one that embeds best practices into everyday operations.

 

Centrata has addressed this need with the Centrata ITIL Accelerator. Centrata’s ITIL Accelerator helps companies rapidly implement key ITIL compliant processes. Centrata has codified the ITIL framework and high level recommendations into concrete, implementable solutions, allowing companies to realize tangible benefits that drive ROI in as little as 60 days.
