              8) Why ITIL® V4 was launched by Axelos?

              The most significant purpose for developing an advanced version of the ITIL® V3 was because of its specific shortcomings. These are -
                    1. An unsatisfactory involvement with the ITSM Community
                    2. Incompetent to perceive the current trends in software developments and IT services.

              The latest version addressed the bad relationship issues by giving them heads-up as it will publish the updates in the community, thus avoiding any hindrance in the free flow of data. Moreover, to give the students a complete overview from the beginning, the whole foundation course under the ITIL® V4 has been revised. It is updated based on the requirements of modern business. What makes these revisions so accurate is the fact that they are based on the feedback of millions of ITIL® practitioners and are completely practical.

                • The framework of ITIL® V4 is designed to give comprehensive guidance to organizations on how they should address the new service management challenges effectively and utilize the latest technologies which will help them transform digitally.
                • Designed to assist the organization to provide effective governance and deliver accurate IT service management which is flexible, coordinated and integrated. The flexibility also allows the organization to provide accurate data all over the business without any interruptions to the free flow of data, ultimately improving the customer experience.
                • This update has made the ITIL® way more extensible. agile, and collaborative.
