What is ITIL?

It can Ibe referred to as the most preferred certification approach to getting into the Information Technology Service Management department.
ITIL is the most widely used service management framework.
Do kindly note: After the release of Version 4, ITIL is no longer an acronym that stands for Information technology Infrastructure library.
The reason for the change at version was because ITIL is no longer a library but a community involved with various content writers and contributors.
