Chicago, IL (PRWEB) September 13, 2011
The Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL) is considered best practice for information technology service management (ITSM). Accepted by many to be the wave of the future, ITIL training is growing in popularity and use as increasingly more companies adopt it as the guide for corporate IT service management. Because of heightened demand and need for training, the ITIL Training Guide website has been launched to help IT service professionals become skilled in the ways of ITIL.
Originally designed by the British government, ITIL creates a standard of policies and procedures for information technology service management. There are two versions: ITIL version 2, which is centered on the means to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of a company’s information technology operations, and version 3, centered on creating a business management environment. Both have levels of certification and a professional chooses which one best fits his or her immediate needs. ITIL certification, in turn, enhances the career of an ITSM professional by showing proof of this person’s expertise in the procedures and practices of a service management system rapidly reshaping the world in which it is used.
ITIL is replacing older, less efficient, service management systems and a person without the right training will be considered obsolete without knowing the dynamics of ITIL. Experts in the field already speak of the common vocabulary rising out of ITIL and the cultural shift it brings to information service management as a whole. The training is available, but there are almost too many choices and a Google search unearths a multiple of options and some are more expensive than effective. The ITIL Training Guide website is intended, among other things, to make the search for the right training less of a chore.
Conceived as a service for a service, this web portal points a visitor in the direction of effective training seminars, self study and e-learning opportunities as well as books, training manuals, DVDs, and other learning mediums. Sites with practice questions and examinations can be found through this site, helping prepare students for the ITIL certification exam that will boost career and wages. The hope is that this site will provide a learner with all he or she needs to not only choose the right training, but also to be successful in the attempt to achieve certification.
The lifecycles inherent in ITIL predict the future for the field. A community of ITIL experts is growing and with new practices and terminology, these people will be at the forefront of all the later developments in information technology service management. An ambitious person wants to be a part of this expanding professional clan and learn the language of such innovators. The ITIL Training Guide is here to help realize dreams of professional advancement, serving as a reliable resource for anyone wanting to improve skill, knowledge and familiarity with what is now best practice in the field of information technology service management.
