ITIL® 4 - the novelties compared to ITIL® 2011

 

 

The goals of the revision 4

 

First of all, don't panic - the basic principles, functions and processes of ITIL® 2011 will remain the same in principle. The main reason for the revision of the ITIL® standard is the adaptation to current market developments, such as:

  • the already known lean principles (reduction of avoidable actions)

  • the implementation of agile process models such as Scrum (flexible reaction to changes - embrace change)

  • the meanwhile established approaches of DevOps, such as Test Driven Development, Continuous Integration and Disciplined Agile Delivery

in order to meet the requirements of the New Digitalized Economy.

 

The "Service Lifecycle" was extended to become the "Service Value System" - away from service as the goal of doing and towards creating value by means of services (and thus also the possibility of lifting the ITIL® framework out of IT and establishing it as a general service management system throughout the entire company).

 

ITIL® 4 Practices

 

ITIL® now speaks about 34 "Practices" instead of the former "Functions" and "Processes", where "Practices" are procedures that combine value contribution, processes and methods.

 

 

The requirements of the New Digitalized Economy

 

The New Digitalized Economy is changing the challenges and markets decisively. These include:

 

 

Requirements dynamics (volatility)

  

The dynamics of the markets lead to (partly) unforeseeable fluctuations in the requirements for IT services.

 

  

Uncertainty of requirements (Uncertainity)

  

Despite improved analysis techniques (Big Data, etc.), market developments are becoming increasingly difficult to predict.

 

  

Complexity of requirements (Complexity)

 

The complexity of the requirements for IT services is increasing dramatically due to market dynamics and rapid technological developments.

 

 

Variety of solutions (Ambiguity)

 

Rapid acceleration of innovation in the technology sector and thus (partly) unpredictable life cycles of technologies make the selection of dedicated solution strategies more difficult.

  

 

The outcomes

The core processes of ITIL® are adapted to the aforementioned requirements, but essentially remain the same. However, some are added respective modified.
