Have used ILX Group many times over the years for training. Not only are their prices competitive, but their online self-paced learning is thorough and the simulated practise exams prepare you really well for the real thing.

Helped Pass ITIL4 Foundation Certification in first attempt with 95% score.

ITIL4 Foundation online course was very useful to help me pass the ITIL4 Foundation exam in first attempt. Pass Pledge feature is very good as it allows free second attempt and serves as a comfort factor. I didn't have to use Pass Pledge though as I passed the exam in first attempt with score of 95%.

What are the technical management practices in ITIL® 4?

Completing our deep dive into the 34 management practices of ITIL® 4, this blog is centred around the three technical management practices.

Read our previous blogs to learn more about the general management practices and service management practices.

What are the technical management practices?

Adapted from technology management, these three practices aim to ensure that the technological components of IT services are effectively managed, deployed and aligned with business goals.

Deployment management

This practice refers to the process of transferring new resources (hardware, software, documentation, etc.) to a live environment, or to an environment where it is due to undergo staging or testing.

Infrastructure management

Overseeing the infrastructure and platforms used by an organisation, this practice handles the management and monitoring of technological services available through the organisation itself and from external providers.

Software development and management

Encompassing activities such as solution architecture and solution design, plus software development, testing and management, this practice ensures that all software meets the needs and expectations of stakeholders.

What are the benefits of successfully implementing the technical management practices?

Developing an understanding of these three areas can bring several benefits for an individual and organisation, including:

  • Enhanced service quality
  • Minimised infrastructure failures and software glitches
  • Faster identification and resolution of incidents and problems
  • Stronger service level management
  • Streamlined service request fulfilment
  • Reduced security vulnerabilities
  • And more!
