With this certification we verify that iET ITSM 6 is fully aligned with the ITIL® guidelines."
Glenfis considered the following twelve processes in respect of functionality and process integration and certified that iET ITSM conforms with best practice:
1 Incident Management 2 Problem Management 3 Change Management 4 Service Asset & Configuration Management 5 Request Fulfillment 6 Service Level Management 7 Knowledge Management 8 Release & Deployment Management 9 Service Portfolio Management 10 Service Catalogue Management 11 Event Management 12 Availability Management
