Course content and the new content compared to ITIL version 3

ITIL 4 is a comprehensive development of ITIL based on version 3, providing a much more practical and flexible basis for the digital transformation of any organization. ITIL 4 contributes with an operational and end-to-end digital model for the delivery and operation of products and IT services. ITIL 4 enables the IT department to play a bigger and more crucial role in the business strategy. In addition, ITIL 4 also provides an overall end-to-end perspective that integrates both DevOps, Lean IT and agile development.
As in the previous versions, the new ITIL 4 Foundation provides the participants with the fundamental understanding for working with IT service management. This includes the understanding of ITIL® 4’s IT service management framework, terminology and concepts.
