Here is yet another shocker (a mild term that I could find!) from the ITIL owner, the OGC :

All the way, experts across the world has been trying hard to create awareness in the IT(IL) world that there is nothing called ‘ITIL compliance’ – as it is a collection of best (uh… good!) practices. Especially, there was supposed to be nothing like an “ITIL compliant tool” as some tool vendors used to claim.

Now,  OGC has (reportedly) approved a scheme to ‘endorse software products’ through a ‘licensed assessor’ who will endorse a software tool as ‘ITIL compliant’!

Even ignoring the April fool joke by Itskeptic in his blog regarding this, it still looks like an April fool gag from the official ITIL site to me!

Just hope it is…
