The Open Group IT4IT™ Forum was launched in October 2014. The mission of this new Forum is to develop, evolve, and drive the adoption of The Open Group IT4IT Reference Architecture, a "business architecture for the business of IT."
This presentation will provide an overview of the IT4IT Reference Architecture that covers the entire IT value chain, from strategy and architecture through application development to service management and operations. In combination with the TOGAF® and ArchiMate® standards,, this work represents a significant addition to The Open Group portfolio of IT management and architecture standards.
