New book focuses on service as a capability of IT with the latest guidance from ITIL 2011

Foundations of IT Service Management with ITIL 2011 by Brady Orand preps students and executives on positioning Information Technology as a service provider.
Aug. 19, 2011 - PRLog -- HOUSTONFoundations of IT Service Management with ITIL 2011 by Information Technology Service Management (ITSM) instructor Brady Orand prepares readers for the ITIL Foundations exam and promotes Information Technology as a service provider, rather than simply a technology provider.

Including new guidance from the recent publication of ITIL 2011, Orand's books and publications are continuing to provide a positive impact on IT organizations around the world.

Orand, who has taught the IT Infrastructure Library (ITIL) concepts to thousands of students for many years, wanted to bring formal classroom training to Foundations of IT Service Management for those without extra money or time.  Understanding these limitations, Orand realizes that “the demand for knowledge continues to grow as business adapts to the new technology advances available in today's world.”  ITIL is explained in the book through case studies and real-life examples.

Also intended for Information Technology managers, directors and chief information officers, Foundations of IT Service Management with ITIL 2011 follows the recent release of ITIL 2011 which focuses on the service lifecycle of services within Information Technology and adds critical guidance that was under-documented in previous versions of ITIL.  “As businesses strive to cut costs in this economy while still improving competitiveness, Information Technology is one of the first targets of cost-cutting,” says Orand.  “Information Technology must begin to position itself as a value-added partner of the business.  This starts with really understanding the business."
