ITIL V3 – Structure and Certifications

Though it is expected that most people know about this already, however ITSM in my opinion is about revisiting the importants, refreshing the memory and keepings things in radar. Here is a good summarization of  the certifications related to ITIL v3 and what roles do they fit in, written by Rick Lemieux on DITY!

OGC to withdraw ITIL V2 support

According to a recent article on ITSMWatch, OGC is withdrawing support from ITIL V2 expected to be complete by 30th June 2011. Specifics of withdrawal are :

  • v2 Foundation to cease 30 June 2010
  • v2 Manager to cease 31 August 2010
  • v2 Practitioner to cease 31 Dec 2010 Foundation Bridge to cease 31 Dec 2010
  • (All of the above will be available for re-sits until 30 June 2011.)
  • Manager Bridge to cease 30 June 2011
  • Service Support and Service Delivery publications will be removed on 30 June 2011
  • I could not find anything on the OGC website about this though!

    I think its the right thing to do, ITIL V3 has been around for a while now (its popularity can still be questioned), and two sets of certifications would create more confusion and a gradual phase out of the V2 was required.
