ITIL is a widely adopted body of knowledge and best practices for successful IT Service Management that links with training and certification. ITIL 4 has evolved from the current version by re-shaping much of the established ITSM practices in the wider context of customer experience; value streams and digital transformation; as well as embracing new ways of working, such as Lean, Agile, and DevOps. ITIL 4 provides the guidance organizations need to address new service management challenges and utilize the potential of modern technology. It is designed to ensure a flexible, coordinated and integrated system for the effective governance and management of IT-enabled services. "ITIL Foundation" is the first ITIL 4 publication and the latest evolution of the most widely-adopted guidance for ITSM.
