ISO/IEC 20000 is an IT standard that allows companies to demonstrate excellence and prove best practice in IT management. The standard ensures companies can achieve evidence-based benchmarks to continuously improve their delivery of IT services. ISO/IEC 20000 was released in 2005 based on the IT Infrastructure Library (ITIL®) best practice framework. The adoption of ISO/IEC 20000 has grown rapidly in the international arena of IT service providers and it has become a competitive differentiator for delivery of IT services. APMG-International owns and operates the ISO/IEC 20000 certification and qualification schemes formerly managed by itSMF.
