The Open Group IT4IT Forum launches first standard

Significant momentum results in important new standard to "manage the business of IT".

The Open Group, the vendor neutral IT consortium, has launched its new IT4IT™ Reference Architecture Standard at its conference in Edinburgh.
Just a year since the launch of the IT4IT Forum, this new standard will provide a vendor-neutral, technology agnostic and industry agnostic reference architecture for managing the business of IT. It will provide prescriptive guidance on how to design, procure and implement the functionality needed to run IT.
The operating model defined by the IT4IT Standard serves the digital enterprise with support for real-world use-cases (e.g., Cloud-sourcing, Agile, DevOps, and service brokering) as well as embracing and complementing existing process frameworks and methodologies (e.g., ITIL®, CoBIT®, SAFe®, and TOGAF®).
The launch of the standard will be followed in early 2016 by the release of a Foundation Level training course and exam. Higher-level training and certification programs for IT4IT will also become available during the course of next year.
There will also be a number of publications available over the next few months including the IT4IT Reference Architecture Pocket Guide and the IT4IT Reference Architecture Management Guide.
