I wanted to take my knowledge and skills up to the next level. But being an ITIL® Professional, it is not an easy task. I went and consulted a firm named Vinsys where I came to know about the ITIL® Intermediate SOA Boot Camp. I joined it as soon as possible and as successful in doing what I needed.
