The article reports on the adoption of Great Britain's Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL) standards by companies in the U.S. ITIL is a library of books that outline best practices for IT service management. It is noted that compliance with the IT risk requirements of Sarbanes-Oxley may be the primary reason that U.S. companies are now considering ITIL. Demand for ITIL certification has also led some of the major IT certification providers to offer ITIL courses.
