The Top Seven Use Cases for IT4IT

CC&C has identified seven use cases for IT4IT that have been shown to deliver business value. Each appeals to a specific practitioner group. All are about business value. IT4IT has helped people succeed by using IT4IT ...

  • as a software architecture for IT tooling, providing normative guidance for functionality and interoperability of software tools.
  • as the basis of a capability map for enterprise IT management to be used by architects who support the IT management domain, for example to manage demand signals, by cross-referencing proposed changes to capabilities.
  • as the basis of an operating model for IT management, to be used as a template for describing organization, activities, flows and governance in the IT department, used by executives and managers to control the IT function, and by architects and planners to propose changes to that function.
  • as a template for understanding and defining standard processes and data flows in specific contexts such as DevOps, Cloud, Service Broker, SIAM, etc., with extensions / reconfigurations of IT4IT concepts to address the detailed contextual requirements in each case, to be used by operations, process and methodology practitioners.
  • as a supporting metaphor for discussion of the IT operational tools and practices of a particular organization, in order to help participants – often led by internal or external strategy advisors – to discover opportunities to improve organizational performance arising from insights gained in the discussion.
  • as a guide for standardizing interfaces and data architectures within vendor toolsets, for interfaces exposed for integration by vendors, and for IT managers wishing to standardize interfaces and data architectures within their organization and multi vendor ecosystem.
  • as an assessment template for organizations wishing to understand the maturity and capabilities of their existing IT management landscape, for example to select process areas requiring changes or to rationalize IT tools.
