The Oregon Training Network and AmerIT Learning Team Up with their first ITILĀ® Foundation Course Offering in IT Service Management

Beaverton, OR, August 11, 2006 --( AmerIT Learning, the leader in full service itil® Education in North America, today announced that the Oregon Training Network (OTN) has selected AmerIT Learning to provide ITIL® education training for Software Association of Oregon (SAO) members and non-members on August 30th and 31st 2006.

More CIO’s are turning to ITIL® best practices for IT service management improvements to help align IT with the business, proactively detect, and eliminate problems before they happen. Organizations that have adopted the ITIL® framework have cut costs, improved processing time and enhanced their overall service provisions significantly. Although the ITIL® revolution is still relatively new in North America, organizations are already reaping in the rewards that ITIL® has to offer.

“We are excited about partnering with OTN,” said Stephanie Piché, ITIL® Education Evangelist and Head of Marketing for AmerIT Learning and founding member of the Portland itSMF LIG. “But it as a supporter of the regional community, we are proud to be a part of the growth in IT Service Management by providing the best education programs available.”

Over the past few years, organizations such as Adobe, Proctor & Gamble, Washington Mutual, Southwest Airlines, Caterpillar, and Hershey Foods have started utilizing the ITIL® framework that originated in the UK in the 1980’s and have seen a dramatic cost savings in operating costs. By focusing on improving the processes around IT, the organization can benefit from lower operating costs, improved availability, reliability, and security of mission critical IT services, be more competitive, and improve productivity.

The Oregon Training Network is proud to partner with AmerIT Learning to offer this training opportunity to the SAO member network along with area IT professionals.
