Course Information

ITIL® Operational Support and Analysis Training Overview

This 5 day ITIL® Operational Support and Analysis course provides a comprehensive overview of this area of the Service Lifecycle and prepares you to take the Operational Support and Analysis exam, leading to the ITIL® OSA certification.

This Operational Support and Analysis begins with an overview of event management, discussing its purpose and scope in relation to operational support. Delegates will evaluate the role of configuration items, error messages and event detection, and challenges to successful event management. The course then moves on to incident management, delineating how to prioritise incidents and escalate where necessary, as well as exploring the relationship between problems and incidents. Those attending the course will also learn about fulfilling service requests, including the most effective ways to boost customer satisfaction and handle requests efficiently, as well as the channels, processes, and elements of automation most appropriate for request fulfilment. Building on the concepts introduced in incident management, the course also explores the problem management process, offering a variety of methods by which problems can be resolved or minimised. Delegates will subsequently be introduced to access management, explaining the concepts of user privileges in addition to tracking access, restricting rights, and monitoring user statuses.

The course also covers the various functions of service operations, from the role of service desks and how to manage them to the importance of IT operations management. Finally, the course will discuss the practical considerations of service operation, including how to manage change and risks. Delegates can expect to gain a full and thorough understanding of Operational Support and Analysis, and leave with an awareness of how to apply the concepts covered to their own organisational frameworks.

ITIL® Operational Support and Analysis is one of the nine Intermediate ITIL® training courses which can be mixed and matched to gain the credits needed for the ITIL® Expert certification, and one of the four courses which make up the Service Capability Stream. Operational Support and Analysis concerns practices for event, incident, request, problem, access, technical, IT operations and application management.

 

By providing a comprehensive framework of what practices should be followed to manage the operation of services, Operational Support and Analysis will be particularly beneficial to anybody involved in these activities.
