COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., Sept. 20, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- HDI, the leading organization dedicated to elevating service and support across the enterprise, today announces that it has assumed ownership of Propoint Solutions’ database and now offers a complete service management portfolio of comprehensive training and consulting services. Through this addition, HDI seeks to address the continued shift toward the adoption of cloud computing, digital transformation, enhanced security, process improvement and DevOps within the service and support industry. The addition of Propoint Solutions’ database is a natural next step in HDI’s growth and progression to offer high-value training for service management professionals.

“HDI is excited to add more service management training and consulting services to our already robust lineup of performance improvement offerings,” said Fancy Mills, Group Training and Content Director, HDI. “Our service management methodology is focused on listening to our customers' challenges, understanding their goals and objectives and using a process framework based on best practices. We are 100% committed to advancing the service management profession and to optimizing our customers’ service management strategy and operations.”

Through the addition of Propoint Solutions’ database of content, HDI aims to address the broader needs of the enterprise service management organization and align with the increased need to offer consulting, assessments and training of service management fundamentals and processes. The database consists of 14 training courses, each focusing on key service management concepts and frameworks including:

  • ITIL
  • Dev Ops
  • Problem Management
  • Agile Process Design and Optimization
  • Service Restoration

HDI’s expanded consulting services will support an ITIL Capability Maturity Model (CMM) Assessment and a Service Management Process Maturity Assessment. HDI’s ITIL Capability Maturity Model (CMM) Assessment takes a holistic look at the overall maturity of vital service management processes and provides detailed feedback and scoring to help improve the overall efficiency and effectiveness of an organization. HDI’s Service Management Process Maturity Assessment will focus on a key process and determine its level of maturity. After the assessment, HDI will deliver a detailed report with specific and structured guidance on how to implement the recommendations provided.

“HDI’s expansion of its IT service management training and consulting offerings makes perfect sense, as this is a natural next step for supporting the IT service and support market and community as it grows and matures,” said Jim Bolton, Founder and President, Propoint Solutions, Inc. “Given Propoint Solutions’ 14-year partnership with HDI in delivering service management training such as problem management and ITIL foundations, I can say with confidence that HDI will continue to advance thought leadership in this industry and serve its customers well.”

In addition, HDI is now a strategic partner of AXELOS, an organization created to manage, develop and grow the Global Best Practice portfolio including investing in and supporting the ITIL framework and standard. HDI and AXELOS will work together to raise the profile of IT service management through the development of existing and new best practices, the joint development of thought leadership surrounding emerging trends, and the support of service management skills development and professionalism through career and competency progression routes.
