IBM draws that long ITIL bow again
IBM just can't get over the fact they dropped the ball on ITIL, can they? Here is yet another claim that stretches the truth to the point of distortion:
IBM is a founding member of the ITIL research committee and still actively involved in the support and creation of new library materials including ITIL, Version 3.
From what we know about the history of V1 and the authors of V3 this statement to me implies a much greater role in both ITIL V1 and ITIL V3 than IBM can rightly claim. Even though both claims are strictly correct, any reader not knowing any better would be lead to believe that (a) this constituted a major part of both versions and (b) IBM was equally active in the intervening twenty-five years. Neither is the case.
