Information and Communications Technology (ICT) is the third of the four fundamental drivers for any business. ICT helps you collect, analyse, produce and distribute information about your business, your services and your successes. Information on which your business plans are based, your markets are created, sales are made and goods distributed. Information which affects your image with shareholders and the public at large. Getting the best from your ICT is where you can help your business. Management of your ICT infrastructure is essential if it is to underpin the IT services that support your business.
This course is based on the IT Infrastructure Library® (ITIL®) best practice guidance for ICT Infrastructure Management (ICTIM) and covers the syllabus of the ISEB ITIL® Infrastructure Management Certificate qualification.
