Problem Management

ITIL Problem management process definition

According to the ITIL (Information Technology Infrastructure Library) framework, a problem is defined as a cause or potential cause of one or more incidents. This means that a problem is not just a single incident but rather a recurring or underlying issue that may lead to multiple incidents over time.

The ITIL Problem Management process is one that aims to prevent incidents and minimize their impact on IT services and the business as a whole. It involves identifying and recording problems, analyzing their root causes, and determining and implementing corrective actions to prevent their recurrence. The process also includes monitoring and reviewing the effectiveness of the solutions implemented to ensure that the problems have been resolved or mitigated.
