The global skills and competency framework for the digital world

#1533 Refresh of System Software (SYSP) level descriptions change request pending

Looking for parity across the IT operational skills

Level 3 used to be a good fit for those using system software tools like software deployment and remote desktop - where should those go now?
Level 3 - what does "applies system software parameters to maximise throughput and efficiency" actually mean?
Level descriptions don't make clear that this skill is a good fit for the design and maintenance of managed desktop environments, but the guidance notes indicates this would be a valid use

Proposed change applies to System software
