ITIL v4 vs ITIL v3 Foundation Exam：What’s Different?
Recently, many Aspirants of this blog question me whether the ITIL® v3 Exam will be discontinued in 2019. And they are at a loss of whether to begin their own ITIL® Foundation exam prep.
ITIL® v4 in 2019
Yes, ITIL® will see an update in 2019 from v3 to v4! The update will be published in the 1st quarter of 2019 and the new ITIL® v4 Exam may be activated later on.
But it is now know that the if you get ITIL® v3 certifications now, they will remain valid following the update. Plus the credits towards higher certification levels will still be honoured for up to 1 year!
Major Changes in ITIL® v4 vs ITIL® v3
ITIL® v4 adds to ITIL® v3 some new techniques to assist IT Service Management to a new height of efficiency and effectiveness. ITIL® will now be aligned more closely with other IT methodologies e.g. IT4IT, Agile, DevOps, Lean, etc. so that ITIL® and other development methodologies can work together to achieve synergy. It is a change in approach and philosophy to IT service management.
ITIL® v4 advocates:
- focusing on value
- simplicity and transparency
And the ITIL® v4 will be much customizable and flexible in its implementation.
Wish you ITIL® success!
