Some of the major topics that we will cover in this course include the primary areas of operations, support, infrastructure, and applications when delivering services with the processes of incident, problem, and access management; understanding the roles of people that own or manage the associated processes; technology considerations when implementing these processes; and, of course, how to study and prepare for the ITIL exam.
