Why Are So Many Businesses Excited for ITIL 4?
ITIL has long been the world’s most popular framework for ‘IT service management (ITSM)’, a practice that delivers everything from web-based customer services to internal IT systems for businesses. ITIL provides comprehensive guidance on the entire IT service development lifecycle, from design through to release and even beyond with continuous service improvement.
At the same time, ITIL is generic enough to be applicable to virtually any environment. This has allowed every industry from aerospace to animation to benefit from using ITIL. Indeed, some of its biggest practitioners include Coca-Cola, Microsoft, Apple and even Disney. This booming global community of practitioners has played a key part in the development of the newest iteration of the framework: ITIL 4.
Announcing the update back in November 2017, ITIL-owner AXELOS wrote: “The development of the updated framework will take place in 2018. While building on the established core of best practice in the existing ITIL guidance, the update will offer new and explicit practical content focusing on the optimum integration of ITIL with complementary practices, such as DevOps, Agile and Lean.
“True to the spirit that has always characterized the development of ITIL, this evolution of the framework will derive from the real-life experiences of thousands of specialists and experts. Contributors from the global ITSM community already include international brands, SMEs, governments, academics, training organizations and professional communities. Over 650 practitioners worldwide are now participating in ITIL’s Global Research Programme.”
The ITIL 4 Foundation syllabus is scheduled for release in Q1 2019, with subsequent parts being released in H2. One of the most important parts will be the ‘Managing Professional (MP) Transition’ module, a syllabus and exam that will allow ITIL V3 Experts to transition over to ITIL 4 without having to start from scratch. Because of this, those currently studying ITIL V3 at Intermediate level are advised to continue until they earn their Expert certifications.
