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.
