FitSM Foundation Training at Espoo

Tuesday, September 3, 2019 - 12:30 to Wednesday, September 4, 2019 - 13:00

IT Service Management is a discipline that helps provide services with a focus on customer needs and in a professional manner. It is widely used in the commercial and public sectors to manage IT services of all types, but current solutions are very heavyweight with high barriers to entry.

FitSM is an open, lightweight standard for professionally managing services. It brings order and traceability to a complex area and provides simple, practical support in getting started with ITSM. FitSM training and certification provide crucial help in delivering services and improving their management. It provides a common conceptual and process model, sets out straightforward and realistic requirements and links them to supporting materials.

The training is co-located with the EOSC-Nordic project kickoff meeting taking place on 2-3 September 2019, ensuring no overlap with the kickoff meeting programme.

This one-day (2x half day) Foundation level course provides an agnostic introduction to the basic IT service management concepts and terms, outlines the purpose and structure of FitSM standards and their relationship to other standards, and details the formal requirements defined within it.

Learning goal: 

Through FitSM, the EOSC-hub project aims at conducting effective IT service management in the EOSC federated environment and achieving a baseline level of ITSM that can act in support of ‘management interoperability’ in federated environments from partner projects such as EOSC-Nordic.
