What is IT4IT?
An understanding of the IT4IT standard provides architects and technology managers with the best open-source blueprint for digital transformation of the IT management lifecycle.
The IT4IT reference architecture is a model for implementing and governing end to end, full lifecycle digital product portfolio management, including a well-defined, prescriptive functional and information model.
It stands alone among the multitude of vendor-supplied DevOps architecture models, as vendor-independent and methodology agnostic.
As an architectural reference model, IT4IT has a strong emphasis on functional specifications, key integrations and essential systems of record. It describes both a conceptual model for modern IT management and a proven practical model for scalable tool chain automation.
The reference architecture was developed over the last decade by The Open Group’s IT4IT Forum -- a joint effort of top IT tools vendors (Micro Focus BMC, Microsoft, ServiceNow, IBM, Oracle, etc.), service delivery leaders (CC&C, DXC, HCL, Fujitsu, Accenture and more) and large end user organizations (including Shell, Raytheon, Boeing, Oracle, and many more.
Get a Grip on Digital Product Management and DevOps
Regardless of your starting point, it is adaptable to the rapidly changing landscape of Digital Product Management, Demand Management, automated DevOps at scale, and full lifecycle support and management of the digital product portfolio.
Partly because so many technology vendors have been involved, IT4IT favours none of them. It is truly an open standard, available to all and applicable to all.
The Forum continues to improve the quality and breadth of detail in IT4IT while the end user community increasingly provides examples of how to apply IT4IT to achieve measurable benefits.
If learning about IT4IT sounds like something that could help improve how things are done in your business / job, then sign up for our IT4IT Foundation training today! Space is limited on our courses – don’t wait until the next ones sell out!
