How might it affect you?

The major difference between ITIL® 4 and the previous versions of ITIL® is that ITIL® 4 introduces the Service Value System (SVS) focused on how you would manage value with less focus on the processes themselves. ITIL® 4 additionally addresses the integration with IT Service Management with other frameworks and standards (Agile, Lean, DevOps) by taking a holistic view to enabling business objectives. The result aims to reduce siloes, increase the speed of change and support the creation of value to support the business outcomes.
