What is FoxPRISM?

FoxPRISM is a tool to help you define and implement service management practices and processes. It is a way of documenting the ITIL 4 service value system and its constituent practices, along with the processes that are contained within the five ITIL 3 books (Service Strategy, Service Design, Service Transition, Service Operation and Continual Service Improvement). The content is represented in a way that is simple to use and makes it clear to all relevant staff how the practices and processes are to be used. It is a web-based system designed to be accessible via an organisation’s Intranet and is a valuable reference tool for all staff and as an induction tool for new recruits.

It has particular advantages when used to help implement service management, where it can:

  • Shorten the implementation time.
  • Make more effective use of resources.
  • Add value in the short, medium and long term.
  • Provide a template upon which practice and process definitions can be based (not starting from “a blank sheet of paper”).
  • Focus on key elements.
  • Provide a baseline for a continual service improvement programme (CSIP).
  • Provide a reference point for the documentation of all service management practices and processes and which is available for use by the entire organisation, thereby ensuring a consistent understanding and implementation.
