ITIL, the Change Advisory Board, and DevOps – Together at Last!
With the release of IT infrastructure library (ITIL) V4 and the innovation and agility provided from DevOps, all organisations need to review, and where necessary revitalise, the implementation of change control mechanisms in line with the release of ITIL V4.
To leverage the value of IT Service Management (ITSM), it can not be set-and-forget. The increased maturity of ITSM with the adoption of ITIL V4 allows organisations to incorporate innovative approaches such as DevOps into the services value chain. To achieve this, organisations need to be pragmatic in their application of ITIL to effectively control work practices such as DevOps without allowing bureaucracy to stifle innovation.
