ITIL Foundation is a certification based on ITIL practices for IT Service Management. The Foundation certification aims to give professionals an understanding of the guidelines and framework.
ITIL Foundation is designed to give professionals a basic understanding of the ITIL framework. It focuses on awareness and comprehension rather than being able to apply ITIL principles. The basics of IT Service Management as a practice are covered as is the ITIL lifecycle.
Some of the topics covered in ITIL Foundation include:
- IT Service Management as a practice
- ITIL Service Cycle
- Technology and architecture
- Competence and training
The certification also covers processes, models, functions, and roles. The learning objectives focus on knowing and understanding key terms and definitions.
There are two trains of thought in those sentiments and with the announcement of VeriSM™, both resonant to service managers. First and foremost, VeriSM is not replacing ITIL.
The central point of the VeriSM™ focus is about how to provide a good product and/or service in the Digital Age.
ITIL has been the IT service management (ITSM) best, or good, practice “frontrunner” since the 1990s despite the birth, or evolution, of other approaches. And there’s no doubting that it has helped tens of thousands of organizations.
