ITIL®4 - Foundation with exam

ITIL®4 is an evolution from ITIL®v3, providing a practical and flexible transition that allows organizations to adopt the new ways of working required by the modern digital world. This update on ITIL reflects the fast-paced and complex environment we live in, and new ways of working and emerging practices. All of which are essential not only for ITSM professionals, but also for a wider range of professionals working in the world of digital transformation. The purpose of ITIL®4 is to provide organizations and professionals with comprehensive guidance for managing information technology in a modern service economy.   ITIL®4 Foundation is the entry level course for ITIL® certification in IT Service Management (ITSM). The training course is designed as an introduction to ITIL®4 and enables you to understand a new way of looking at IT Service Management through a Service Value System. ITIL®4 brings IT Service Management up to date by reshaping many established ITSM practices in the wider context of customer experience, value streams, and digital transformation. An important part of the training is to link ITIL® to new ways of working, such as Lean, Agile and DevOps.
