Introduction

Welcome New End User. We request you review the page and make note of service desk / help desk polices and procedures.

Below information is meant to help you obtain efficient technology support in the event of an technology incident or routine service requests.

Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL) is a widely accepted approach to IT Service Management (ITSM), which has been adopted by individuals and organizations across the world.

One nice thing about ITIL is it provides definitions for almost everything in IT service management.

Definitions

  • Incidents: ITIL v3 defines an incident as ‘an unplanned interruption to current IT service or reduction in the quality of current IT service. So the main goal of Incident Management is to provide a quick fix that resolves the interruption and restores the service to its full capacity.
  • Service Requests: are defined as ‘a formal request from a end user for something to be provided – for example, a request for information or advice’. In other words, a service request is raised when you want to procure something that you don’t have in the first place. Be it access to the printer or upgrading to a higher version of a software.
