OBJECTIVES
The course is designed as an introduction to ITIL 4 and enables you to understand a new way to look at IT Service Management through a Service Value System (SVS).

What’s the difference between ITIL v3 and ITIL 4? In a nutshell, ITIL v3 describes Service Management around 26 processes and functions that are part of a continuous process of 5 life cycles: Service Strategy, Service Design, Service Transition, Service Operation and Continual Service Improvement. All of the v3 body of knowledge is still very worthwhile and relevant!

ITIL 4 takes you through a more evolved view of a Service Value System (SVS), which provides a holistic end-to-end picture of what it really means to contribute to business value, and also integrates concepts from models such as Lean IT, Agile and DevOps.

When it comes to ITIL and IT Service Management, Pink continues to stand out – after 25 years and 4 versions of ITIL, we’re still the one everyone looks to first.

Over the years, NO OTHER organization has been as deeply entrenched and influential in ITIL as Pink. Having played many major and key roles in the development of ITIL over the years and now the new ITIL 4 Foundation certification course, we’re extremely passionate and excited about the new release! Look no further than Pink Elephant for your ITIL 4 training and certification.

This class is also available as On-Demand - 6-month subscription.
