Course overview

The adoption of ITIL as the most widely used guidance in the world on IT and service management continues with ITIL 4. It ensures continuity with existing ways of working (where service management is already successful) by integrating modern and emerging practices with established and proven knowhow. ITIL 4 also helps guide individuals and organizations to see the benefits of these new methods and to move toward them with confidence, focus, and minimal disruption.

ITIL 4: Digital and IT Strategy (DITS) focuses on the alignment of digital business strategy with IT strategy, adding a new perspective to the ITIL suite and elevating the discussion around ITIL concepts to a strategic level among business leaders and aspiring leaders. It also covers the disruptive impact of new technologies in every industry, as well as the response from business leaders. It is one of several ITIL 4 publications which build on the concepts introduced in ITIL Foundation: ITIL 4 Edition. Each of these publications focuses on a different aspect of service management.
