Download the 2nd edition SIAM BoKs

YORKSHIRE, U.K. - April 1, 2020 - PRLog -- Scopism is proud to unveil the second edition of the SIAM™ Foundation and Professional Bodies of Knowledge.Written by the global SIAM Architect Group and led by Simon Dorst and Michelle Major-Goldsmith from Kinetic IT, Australia, the updated edition of the two SIAM Bodies of Knowledge focuses on incorporating feedback and changes in the service integration and management (SIAM) industry including updates to ITIL, COBIT, and the release of VeriSM. The publications are published and available as free downloads on our website.

Since 2017 when the first edition of the SIAM BoK's were written, many things have changed in the industry. New practices have been released and more and more organisations are providing practical learnings and applications. This is developing our understanding of the practical application of SIAM. It was time to make sure the Bodies of Knowledge reflect the most current global practices and experience.

In conjunction with the updates to the BoKs,the updated versions of the EXIN BCS SIAMTM Foundation and Professional exams are launched.

The certification program has been developed with and is globally available via Scopism's education partners:
● EXIN, the world's leading provider of independent information management certification and accreditation.
● BCS, the chartered institute for IT
● APMG, the accreditation and examination organization

Claire Agutter, director at Scopism says:
"A lot has changed in a short time since we launched the SIAM BoKs. The second edition project has allowed us to refresh the content and align it with industry changes like the release of VeriSM and the ITIL update. I'm very grateful to all of the contributors, and to Michelle Major-Goldsmith and Simon Dorst for leading the work. We've added some new concepts and guidance, but it was also reassuring to revisit the content and see how the underlying principles have stayed the same. I hope the BoKs will continue to act as an important resource for anyone working in a SIAM model, whether they are looking for guidance at the start of a transformation or assessing the maturity of an established model."

Michelle Major-Goldsmith from Kinetic IT Australia adds:
"Technology itself is becoming mainstream and ubiquitous and whilst some technical skills are certainly still required, service providers need increased capabilities around business analysis, relationship management and organisational change management. The most recent releases of ITIL 4 and VeriSM, as well as the SIAM Bodies of Knowledge, make a clear reference to this!"

The first edition of the Body of Knowledge was published three years ago and the materials proved to be successful with over 10,000 downloads. Candidates from 38 countries across the world have taken certifications from the EXIN BCS SIAM scheme.
