- Provides prescriptive guidance on the specification of and interaction with a consistent service model backbone (common data model/context)
- Supports real world use cases driven by the Digital Economy (e.g. Cloud-sourcing, Agile, DevOps and service brokering)
- Embraces and complements existing process frameworks and methodologies, (e.g. ITIL®, CoBIT®, SAFe and TOGAF®) by taking a data-focused implementation model perspective, essentially specifying an information model across the entire value chain
The IT4IT Reference Architecture provides prescriptive, holistic guidance for the implementation of IT management capabilities for today’s digital enterprise. It is positioned as a peer to comparable reference architectures such as NRF/ARTS, TMF Framework (aka eTOM), ACORD, BIAN, and other such guidance.
