ITIL 4 and the Digital Enterprise - Working Beyond IT, presented by ITIL 4 architect and co-author Barclay Rae


Watch this free webinar replay on extending the scope of ITIL® 4 to other areas of organisations, such as HR, finance, and hospitality, for successful IT service management.

With the developments in ITIL 4 in recent years, organisations are now appreciating the real meaning of value “co-creation,” and the need for collaboration across organisations. So there is a lot of development and collaborative work taking place to synthesize and integrate work, tasks, and value streams across departments, teams, and functional groups—all well beyond IT.

IT service management (ITSM) practices are proven to provide consistency and value, and many of these are easily portable to other areas such as HR and finance. Organisations can use the experience of many years of working with core service management processes to provide benefits to other business areas. Much of this work is referred to as “enterprise service management,” although in reality this can be viewed as practical “digital transformation.” This webinar clarifies the opportunities as well as challenges involved in successful implementation.
