ITIL is a set of best practices guidance that has become a worldwide-adopted framework for IT Service Management by many Public & Private Organizations. Since early 1990, ITIL has been evolving from focusing on Functions and Processes under versions 1 and 2 to focusing on the Full Service Lifecycle Management under current version.
In addition to the existing benefits of aligning IT goals and objectives with the business, improving quality and reducing cost of operation; ITSM and ITIL now emphasizes the following areas:
Assist in transforming IT Service Management onto a strategic business asset
Assist in defining and managing the complete lifecycle of IT Service Management Process
Provide guidance on the development of Services Strategy, the development of Service Design, the Transition of Services from current to desired state, the Implementation and the Continuous improvement of those Services
Through lectures and practice exam questions participants explore the concepts of good practice in IT Service Management based on the ITIL Edition 2011Framework.
