The ITIL 4 Create, Deliver and Support (CDS) qualification is intended to provide the candidate with an understanding on how to integrate different value streams and activities to create, deliver and support IT-enabled products and services, and relevant practices, methods and tools
The ITIL 4 Create, Deliver and Support examination is intended to assess whether the candidate can demonstrate sufficient understanding and application of ITIL 4 to the creation, delivery and support of services, as described in the syllabus below, to be awarded the ITIL 4 Create, Deliver and Support qualification. The ITIL 4 Create, Deliver and Support qualification is one of the pre-requisites for the designation of ITIL 4 Managing Professional which assesses the candidate’s practical and technical knowledge about how to run successful, modern, IT-enabled services, teams and workflows.
Delivering services that equally meet consumer demand while remaining stable and reliable has become even more critical with the speed of IT change today.
Every service organization needs to create, deliver and support services and understand the skills and competencies that requires.
The new ITIL® 4 Specialist Create, Deliver and Support (CDS) module provides universal guidance that further explores the concepts introduced in ITIL 4 Foundation, while talking about challenges that modern enterprises face – from professionalism, team culture and collaboration, to outsourcing work and managing multiple suppliers.
CDS is not about technical aspects of IT service management. Instead, it takes a higher-level view of what needs to happen across all four dimensions of service management to create and manage effective and streamlined services. Accordingly, this module is geared towards the needs of more experienced ITIL practitioners (for example, team leads, managers, and consultants) responsible for the design, development, delivery and support of IT-enabled and digital products and services.
If you’re coming from an ITIL v3 perspective, similar concepts were explored in service design, transition and operation guidance. But while ITIL v3 guidance was concerned with “how” organizations executed work (e.g. how incidents should be managed), the CDS guidance is concerned with “what” the organization does (e.g. what activities the organization carries out while managing an incident).
In the new architecture of ITIL, the “how” is published as a practice, and the “what” is the value stream that draws upon the practice.
