function

function

Definition: A team or group of people and the tools or
other resources they use to carry out one or
more processes or activities – for example,
the service desk. The term also has two other
meanings:
– An intended purpose of a
configuration item, person,
team, process or IT service.
For example, one function of
an email service may be to
store and forward outgoing
mails, while the function of a
business process may be to
despatch goods to
customers.
– To perform the intended
purpose correctly, as in ‘The
computer is functioning.’
