In this article, published in the Polish magazine for projectmanagers, 'Strefa PMI', Mark Smalley explains why 'Projects deliver no value!' Read this interview, conducted by Mirosław Dabrowski, our ASL BiSL ambassador in Poland, and learn how to scope projects to ensure that value is realized for the business.
In this article, published in IT Beheer in 2009, Machteld Meijer gives a comparison of ASL 2 and ITIL v3, as interested users of the frameworks often have many questions both on the usefulness of the frameworks for the different management domains and on the relationship between the IT management frameworks.
ISO/IEC 38500, BiSL and ASL can play a major role in the professionalization of the information provisioning, each model from its own goal and strength. They may well be used in parallel. This is actually what each organization should be aiming to do. This paper written by Machteld Meijer and Mark Smalley was posted in Dutch in the magazine ‘Informatie’, May 2010.

The authors, Sharada Prasadita and Mark Smalley state the managed services represent a substantial and increasing part of India's IT economy, providing recurring business to compliment project-oriented work. And the Application Service Library (ASL) provides a process framework with many best practices, the implementation of which is particularly meaningful for managing applications as a service.
In this article that has been published in 'Best Practices in Service Management' – Part 4 2006, Frances van Haagen, Lucille van der Hagen, Machteld Meijer and René Sieders explain what the NEN 3434 standard for application management entails, how it is applied and how it relates to, among other things, the ISO 20000 standard for service management.
This publication in IT Service Management Global Best Practices Volume 2008 explains the impact of developments in the IT-services world on Application Services Library (ASL). For the last five years, ASL has served as a framework for application management. But is it still 'future proof'? Remko van der Pols analyzes ASL in the light of current IT developments and examines the possible consequences for the next version of ASL. Note: in this article the next version of ASL is called 'ASL 1.1.'. Later on, ASL 2 has been chosen as the definite name of the new version of ASL.
Johannesburg, South Africa, 28 February 2008 - Research by Dimension Data shows that 66% of organisations surveyed around the globe have engaged with the Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL). Other IT Service Management (ITSM) frameworks are also enjoying increased adoption at more moderate rates. The research surveyed over 370 CIOs from 14 countries across five continents.
In IT Service Magazine, Frances van Haagen, Lucille van der Hagen and Machteld Meijer write about the fact that until recently, only individuals could achieve an ASL certificate. This has changed with the arrival of the ASL Certification Standards of the ASL Foundation. Application management teams can have themselves tested against this standards framework, to verify whether they are eligible for a certificate based on ASL.
Since Software CMM (a maturity model), ASL and IT Service CMM are all used in the field of application services it is useful to know which tool is the best tool for an organization to use. With that purpose, Machteld Meijer compares these models in this article in bITa monitor, 2003, Vol. 1, nr. 1.

In recent years, a great deal of experience has been gained with, and a great deal of information has been published on, the use of process-oriented approaches at application management organizations. A study, which looked at the experiences gained and various publications on this topic resulted in a new framework called ASL, the Application Services Library, which consists of a framework and a library of best practices in the field of application management. The framework not only pays attention to operational and tactical processes, but also looks at strategic aspects. The new framework is introduced in this paper. It also looks at the relationship with a framework for functional application management for instance.
