Optimise Your IT Management With ITIL V3
A significant number of organizations are either working on or have completed the exercise of virtualizing their data networks. ITIL (Information Technology Infrastructure Library) is a set of tasks, processes and techniques that are usually implemented for managing the Information Technology services of an enterprise. ITIL is one of the most preferred techniques of ITSM or Information Technology Services Management. It focuses on aligning the I.T. services with the business for which it has been designed. Nowadays, every business that’s is a part of any sector requires that the data networks and resources belonging to it are used optimally so that they can provide the best quality of services with lesser costs. For this reason, ITIL is the frontrunner for managing I.T services that have become one of the highest priorities of an enterprise.
ITIL has made available various courses and modules for all I.T. services professionals. The ITIL training is accessible to individuals from all over the globe and there is a large network of dedicated training centers to facilitate this training. Once the chosen ITIL training is complete, an ITIL certification is awarded. There are different levels of certification and ITIL V3 provides the certification path that one should follow. The most preliminary course and the first step is ITIL Foundation. In this course, the participant is taught not only the basic concepts and framework but also the practical applications of ITIL. It is important for one to pass the assessment in the ITIL Foundation course in order to move ahead to the higher levels of training. The foundation course is followed by the training and certification for ITIL practitioner and after that, ITIL Master.
Each training module is in- depth and is linked to the topics that fall under a specific level. The content of the course is designed in such a way that the participant on being awarded a certification has comprehensive knowledge of their chosen ITIL domain and is well equipped to manage their selected area of specialization in any enterprise, in any part of the world. The domains covered in ITIL training include Continual Service Improvement, Service Design, Planning- Protection- Optimization, Operational support and Service strategy and so on. The certification of ITIL Master is the highest level of certification that a professional can acquire. One can understand and apply ITIL for more efficient management of the I.T services.
ITIL is not specific to any one particular business. The processes, tasks and techniques of ITIL can be applied universally to any organization who is keen on administrating its I.T. services through ITIL. ITIL allows an organization to continue maintaining its core values that are relevant to each of its businesses. This is especially important for those organizations operating globally in many countries and different continents. Since ITIL is universally applied and one of the most well- known ITSM management tools, taking up the ITIL V3 path and acquiring an ITIL certification will be advantageous to those who are looking to enter into I.T. services management.This post was written by: Anthony Simmons
