2019 will see the launch of the highly-anticipated ITIL® 4. Designed to offer a seamless transition from organisations' current ways of working to a more modern, flexible and faster approach, ITIL 4 helps organisations adopt new ways of working in the modern digital world.
How is ITIL changing?
ITIL 4 enables IT teams to continue their vital role in modern business strategy. It expands on previous versions, supporting existing investments in ITIL, and provides a full-service digital operating model for delivering and operating tech-enabled products and services. This means it supports emerging technologies, such as robotics and AI, by offering more practical and flexible support as technologies develop.
Whilst retaining all the best bits from the previous version, ITIL 4 will place a much greater emphasis on working holistically, when it comes to delivering products and services, and on the importance of working collaboratively.
What does this mean for ITIL V3?
The ITIL V3 exam will still be available until June 2020 and continues to be recognised as an invaluable IT certification. The fourth version expands on much of the content found in V3, so you are encouraged to transition to the new scheme as soon as you can. If you're qualified in ITIL V3 Foundation, you can transition to the new material by completing the new ITIL 4 Foundation course and its accompanying exam.
To find out how to transition to ITIL 4 if you're at the Intermediate or Practitioner level, or are a qualified ITIL Expert, take a look at our ITIL syllabus changes page.
