ITIL 4.0 with Lean & DevOps inside to be released at March, 12th
ITIL 4.0 is to be released officially on March, 12th. Meanwhile, the official ITIL 4.0 Foundation certification starts on February, 28th. A bit strange, but it’s marketing I suppose. My first class for ITIL 4.0 starts on March, 18th, while you can learn about integrating DevOps into ITSM lifecycle just now at my on-line course: https://www.udemy.com/better-it-service-management-using-devops-in-itsm/?couponCode=DEVOPS_ITSM_12
The Red Tape vs Agile battle: How to integrate DEVOPS and ITIL 4
Read the excellent article by Henk Kok, one of the IAMCP EMEA founders. The article deals with the comparison and analysis of ITIL and DevOps.
In the comments you can also find the link to the online course “Better IT service management with DevOps inside ITSM” by another IAMCP EMEA lead Dr. Danil Dintsis.
Product owner certification
The DevOps Agile skills association renewed the certification roadmap, and the 3rd tier (Leadership level) certifications are available now. I have passed the Product Owner certification one of the first, and want to share a brief experience about this prestigious certification.
The Product Owner role is a leading role to ensure the Product vision, roadmap and backlog, and finally the product value to a customer.
The DASA association actively drives training and certification activities in this area.
The PO certification exam includes 40 questions (in fact, not very complicated, especially if a candidate is good with Scrum and Agile). Each question is followed by 4 answer options, one of those is correct. 26 correct answers (65%) lead to success.
I passed the exam at the first attempt. It seems to me that the certification marks that junior PO is ready for his/her journey.
As any other certification it helps to structure candidate’s skills and practical experience.
ITIL – DevOps on-line course is updated with practical assignments
3 practical assignments are added to the course “ITIL and DevOps”.
Start-up teams, which deliver and support their products can learn how to implement the ITIL based IT service lifecycle by a single DevOps team.
Now each student can make his/her own exercises according to his/her IT organization specific features and discuss the case with the trainer at the course forum.
