Repeat Customer

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.

Patrick Mamo
Well prepared for exam

The content of the course gave really good context of the important information required to pass the foundations exam. The simulation exams were bang on. I was scoring in 90's for each randomly generated test and I scored 90% on the certificate exam. There is no interaction with the mobile app, but was a good supplement to listen to while walking/driving to reiterate the lesson.

All in all, I was able to ace the certification with about 3-4 weeks of effort.

ITIL® 4 and Data Science: A powerful partnership for data-driven decision making

Strategic and considered decision making is a vital part of the success of any business, and making use of the right resources can be an integral part of this process. Leveraging the tools available through data science, particularly when combined with the knowledge gained from an ITIL® 4 certification, can assist IT service management (ITSM) professionals in making reliable decisions backed by data-driven insights.

What are the most useful elements of data science for ITSM professionals?

Data science combines various techniques, methods, and tools to help individuals extract valuable insights and knowledge from data, the most useful of these areas for IT service managers are:

  • Predictive analytics: As encouraged by ITIL 4, predictive analytics allows an individual and organisation to take a proactive approach to ITSM. Forecasting potential incidents, capacity requirements and service demand enables them to take preventative and proactive measures to ensure successful service delivery
  • Data visualisation: These techniques can help professionals to present complex data in an easily understandable format. ITIL 4 promotes clear communication and reporting, facilitating better decision-making and performance monitoring as a result
  • Descriptive analytics: Descriptive analytics can help provide a clear picture of historic performance, allowing IT service professionals to identify areas of improvement and better align IT services with business objectives using the ITIL 4 practices, such as knowledge management
  • Cluster analysis: Cluster analytics can help ITSM professionals to improve decision making, gain insights, streamline service management processes and deliver personalised and tailored service offerings to customers. Also, using this technique, in alignment with some ITIL 4 practices, such as incident management and demand management, will help to identify patterns, preferences, behaviours, trends, issues, root causes and more, in line with individual organisational needs, requirements and objectives

What are the benefits of data science usage for ITIL 4 qualified professionals?

ITIL 4 qualified professionals can benefit greatly from integrating data science techniques to help drive improvements within their organisation, including:

  • Better collaboration
  • Cost savings
  • Higher quality outputs
  • Increased efficiency
  • And more…
