2 The basics of BiSL® books
BiSL (Business Information Services Library) is a framework and
collection of best practices for business information management.

3 Summary of BiSL® books
BiSL (Business Information Services Library) was developed
by a Dutch IT service provider, PinkRoccade and made public
in 2005. BiSL was then transferred to the public domain and
adopted by the ASL BiSL Foundation. The current version is the
2nd Edition, published in 2012.

BiSL focuses on how business organizations can improve control
over their information systems: demand for business support, use
of information systems and contracts and other arrangements
with IT suppliers. BiSL offers guidance in business information
management: support for the use of information systems in the
business processes, operational IT control and information

The library consists of a framework, best practices, standard
templates and a self-assessment. The BiSL framework gives
a description of all the processes that enable the control of
information systems from a business perspective (see Figure).

The framework distinguishes seven process clusters, which are
positioned at the operational, managing and strategic levels
(see Figure).


The use management cluster provides optimum, on-going
support for the relevant business processes. The functionality
management cluster structures and effects changes in information
provision. The connecting processes cluster focuses on decisionmaking
related to which changes need to be made to the
information provision, and how they are implemented within the
user organization.

The management processes cluster ensures that all the activities
within the business information management domain are
managed in an integrated way.

There are three clusters at the strategic level, which are
concerned with the formulation of policies for information
provision and the organizations involved in this activity.
