For the purpose of adopting the latest enterprise architectures, IT governance standard reference models and methodologies for the projects and services offered on the digital transformation path, following the developments on the world scale, establishing cooperation with leading individuals and institutions in the world, developing local models and methods, TÜBİTAK BİLGEM has become a member of the IT4IT Reference Architecture Standard working group which the Open Group consortium-a leading authority in its field- has developed for IT architecture, business and service management.
The Open Group IT4IT Standard includes a reference architecture and value chain based operational model for managing IT business processes. It provides policy-based guidance on how to design, supply and implement the functionality required to manage and operate IT. The IT Value Chain and IT4IT Reference Architecture's "how to do" emphasis ensures that IT-provided services are systematically monitored throughout their service life.
IT4IT Reference Architecture Standard;
- Provides rule-based guidance on specifications and interaction related to a consistent service model backbone (common data model / context)
- Supports real-world usage examples driven by the Digital Economy (eg Cloud source, Agile, DevOps, etc.)
- Is in a compatible and complementary position with current process frameworks and methodologies (eg ITIL®, CoBIT®, SAFe® and TOGAF®).
TÜBİTAK BİLGEM Software Technologies Research Institute’s memberships of Enterprise Architecture/TOGAF and IT4IT standards will further enhance the level of expertise in the services provided in strategy and policy planning, standards, guidance and model development for the improvement of public authorities' digital capabilities and their digital transformations, R&D activities and projects.
