The onset of the Digital Age has created a fast-paced environment where circling competitors are always on the lookout for better ways to deliver world-class IT services. Businesses that want to survive and thrive must learn how to succeed in a way that takes advantage of this ‘high-velocity’ situation, and this is where ITIL 4 comes in.
When it was first released back in the 1980s, ‘ITIL’ stood for the ‘IT Infrastructure Library’, as it was a series of 48 books that outlined best practices for managing the infrastructure of IT.
Rather than simply treating it as a buzzword, it described elements that make up digital transformation, such as modernization, automation, and transformation initiatives, and how they all help companies achieve new heights of success.
Although there is no distinct module for problem management in the ITIL 4 certification path, several related activities can be found throughout the ITIL Service Value Chain (SVC)
Hosts David Cannon and Richard de Kock will focus strictly on the value of digital transformation from a high-level perspective, demonstrating how business leaders can utilize elements such as automation to achieve new heights of success.
For career-minded IT staff and managers, studying ITIL 4 can be an excellent springboard for success. The certification path suits the needs of students in varying positions and even acknowledges the intrinsic connection between IT governance and long-term program and project management.
With the final module of ITIL 4 now on the market, AXELOS has finally announced time limits for those still waiting to take the exams for ITIL v3 and the ITIL 4 Managing Professional (MP) Transition module. So, how long do they have left, and what do they need to know about updating their qualifications?
Managers and executives need to keep stakeholders aware of what is going on and how it supports their individual priorities. They must also anticipate where stakeholder concerns may create conflict and, if necessary, how to achieve the best possible compromise.
If you are not familiar with ITIL 4 as a framework, it is important to remember that it focuses on the entire lifecycle of IT services. Whether they are internal or customer-facing, and from conception past the point of deployment, ITIL 4 supports the optimization of services that create or support value. Because of this, its Change Enablement process was designed to be applicable across the spectrum of IT as well as any business elements connected to it.
The ITIL framework not only enables solid management but also ensures that IT is doing all it can to keep stakeholders, customers, and clients happy.
