The IT Information Library (ITIL) is the most widely adopted comprehensive framework for ITSM. This site is managed by the OGC in conjunction with their publishing and accreditation partners.

An independent portal for the global ITSM community, enabling interested practitioners to create user groups to voice common concerns and news.
3)  Microsoft MOF
