Certified quality keeps what it promises.
We walk the talk
Glenfis was founded in 1999 and has since established itself as a first mover in the market. We have continuously advanced the ITIL® Best Practice philosophy and method as well as the certification of service management organizations in Switzerland and have aligned our own processes as First Adapter according to these methods. We were the first company in Switzerland to achieve ISO 20000 certification in February 2005 and have since then been confirmed annually in post-audits. In October 2015, our glenfisAcademy Business was certified on the basis of the international standard ISO/IEC 29990 for quality in education and training. The wealth of practical experience that our team of experts gains in the process is subsequently continually incorporated into our customers’ projects. This applies to international standards such as ISO 20000 or ISO 27000 as well as to frameworks such as COBIT®, ITIL® and the solution approach of holistic Cloud- and IT Service Management (ITSM).
Training with a Quality Seal
The transformation of IT into a strategic service branch brings with it the need for standardization. IT service management has become a requirement for managers and IT specialists. International standards and frameworks such as ITIL® for IT Service Management or COBIT for the establishment of a consistent control system are standards that are already widely used and are key factors in IT governance. In our glenfisAcademy, we impart technical skills and practice-oriented knowledge on the relevant topics and standards relating to IT governance and IT service management. We attach great importance to the quality of both the material to be taught and the instructors. So that you can be sure to benefit from the best of the best, our training organisation, seminars, documentation and trainers are certified and accredited by the following bodies:
ISO 29990: International quality standard for education and training institutions

Our commitment takes you further.
Glenfis helps to maintain the standard as well as the philosophy of ITIL® by being involved in corresponding IT service management committees at home and abroad (SNV Swiss Association of Standards, itSMF, ISACA). Glenfis is the only company of its kind in Switzerland to have achieved certification in IT Service Management (ISO/IEC 20000) and is one of the few companies in the world to employ staff with ITIL® Master certifications. In addition, Glenfis is one of two companies worldwide that has been officially appointed as a licensed software assessor for service management tools – the first company in the heart of Europe. With these commitments, we can always draw on a wealth of experience and support our customers in the execution of implementation projects.
There is nothing more practical than a good theory.
The best practice approaches documented in the standard works are not complicated to understand – but not always easy to implement. Pitfalls lurk everywhere and in many cases the managers and employees concerned are sceptical about the changes. To ensure that the expected success does not fail to materialise, practical tips and experience from other organisations are an invaluable asset. We have documented our findings from the many implementation projects for you. This means that a theory that is difficult to understand no longer becomes difficult to apply in practice.

Practical Handbook for Service Management and IT Governance
Reliable IT is the basis for numerous business processes in companies. The quality of IT services is therefore more important than ever. But how can high service quality be achieved and permanently ensured? The ISO/IEC 20000 standard provides answers to this question. ISO 20000 is the first formal quality standard for IT service management worldwide. It is aimed in particular at the continuous improvement of service processes and helps to identify specific risks earlier and to review the IT strategy and its operational processes. This enables the business to better manage costs and risks. In addition, certification according to ISO 20000 is a competitive advantage in the external presentation of the company. Providers, in turn, can use the standard to improve their own service quality in a targeted manner and ensure that it is applied properly and economically. Shop…
