ESP-ITPM - ITIL Process Map
A fresh approach to implementing ITIL
ESP-ITPM is the Asia Pacific Regional Distribution Partner for IT Process Maps GbR, creators of the ITIL Process Map (now an official ITIL® Licensed Product) a complete ITIL Reference Process Model.
During their long careers as ITIL practitioners, Stefan and Andrea Kempter (IT Process Maps GbR - ITPM) saw that:
- ITIL is too complex for most businesses
- ITIL is too costly and too time-consuming to implement
- ITIL often fails to take root in the long term
- A fresh approach was needed.
To overcome the above, they 'translated' ITIL into legible, easy to read process maps in Visio and other process management platforms. This has been widely accepted with many large – and small – organisations, using the ITIL Process Map to implement ITIL faster and at lower cost, with less reliance on expensive consultants.
ITIL® is the most widely adopted set of Best Practices for IT Service Lifecycle. Implementing ITIL® can be challenging, but now, using these new ITIL® templates to build on, that task is infinitely easier.
The ITIL® Process Map presents the ITIL® contents in a graphical, clearly structured, and navigable way. It offers a complete set of templates for ITIL® implementation, plus easily accessible ITIL® know-how.
The ITIL® Process Reference Model, ITIL Process Maps V2 and V3 is available on 4 platforms:
The ITIL Process Map V3 is available in 3 Versions: Basic, Full and Bundled
ITIL v3 Demo
The ITIL® - ISO 20000 Bridge, in combination with the ITIL® Process Map, offers the ideal way to get started, keep track of your progress towards ISO 20000 compliance, and prepare yourself for the certification audit.

A significant milestone has been reached in updating the ITIL Process Map to ITIL 2011 and ISO/IEC 20000:2011. Our ITIL process model has now successfully passed a thorough review by the APMG.
The ITIL Process Map is thus the first independently assessed process model for ITIL 2011 on the market!
As one of the final steps in the project to update our products to the latest versions of ITIL and ISO 20000, the changes to the ITIL Process Map and its add-on for ISO 20000 projects (the ITIL - ISO 20000 Bridge) had to undergo an official review by APM Group Ltd.
During the review, an officially appointed assessor verified the technical quality and correctness of our products, as well as its alignment with the principles of Cabinet Office best practice guidance.
This review has now been successfully completed, so the next product version, compatible with ITIL V3 2011 Edition and ISO/IEC 20000:2011, will continue to feature the "ITIL® Licensed Product" logo.
As a result, we expect to be able to make the 2011 edition of the ITIL® Process Map available to our customers by the end of next week.

Microsoft has just released the new version of Visio 2010. This is why we upgraded the ITIL Process Map so that you can make best use of the new features in Visio 2010.
Our latest version of the ITIL Process Map for Visio uses the new "Container Shapes" as swim lanes. This makes it a lot easier for you to insert and modify swim lanes in the BPMN process diagrams.
The newly introduced Status data fields allow you, for example, to grey out processes which are not yet operational – a very helpful feature if you introduce ITIL processes one after another.
And last but not least Visio 2010 offers better integration with Microsoft SharePoint™.
Our Visio process model is still fully compatible with Visio 2003 and 2007. Some of the new features, however, will only be available for users of Visio 2010.
To learn more, take a look at our video highlighting the features and benefits of our new version of the ITIL Process Map for Visio 2010.

A new, User-friendly Excel Repository and a custom Visio toolbar, adding features to Visio along the lines of dedicated process management applications.
You spoke - we listened! Feedback from our customers suggested that they would welcome a simple Excel spreadsheet for managing their ITIL Processes, Data Objects, Roles, and Checklists. That's why we made the Visio version of the ITIL Process Map V3 still more user-friendly: We replaced the former database in Microsoft Access format with a new Excel Repository.
The Excel Repository is accompanied by a new Visio AddIn with a custom toolbar. In contrast to the previously used standard MS Visio functionality, this makes it much more comfortable for you to pick ITIL Processes, Data Objects, Roles, and Checklists from the Repository while modifying the ITIL process diagrams.
