Service Management

ITIL® (Information Technology Infrastructure Library) is the most widely accepted approach to IT service management best practice.

This comprehensive official ITIL lifecycle certification course will provide you with critical knowledge and practical guidance regarding the management principals and core concepts required to design new or modify existing IT services. The ITIL Service Design publication focuses on the holistic design requirements related to people, process, technology and governance needed to convert strategic objectives into value focused IT service portfolios.

The scope of Service Design is not limited to new services. It includes the changes and improvements necessary to increase or maintain value to customers over the lifecycle of services, the continuity of services, achievement of service levels, and conformance to standards and regulations. It guides organizations on how to develop design capabilities for service management.
