DMTF Standards Gain Global Recognition
PORTLAND, Ore. --(Business Wire)--
Management Task Force (DMTF), the organization bringing the IT
industry together to collaborate on systems management standards
development, validation, promotion and adoption, today announced that
its Platform Management and Web Services Management standards have been
adopted as national and international standards respectively.
The Platform Management standard was adopted by the American National
Standards Institute (ANSI) and the International Committee for
Information Technology Standards (INCITS), while the Web Services
Management standard was adopted by the International Organization for
Standardization (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission
(IEC (News - Alert)). These achievements mark a significant step forward for the
organization in enabling interoperable IT management standards worldwide.
"ANSI and ISO standardization are important benchmarks for many
organizations and government bodies when determining which technologies
to implement," said Hemal Shah, DMTF VP of Technology. "Adoption and
recognition of the Platform Management and Web Services Management
standards by these organizations provide additional credibility, while
increasing the accessibility of these solutions to IT managers."
DMTF's Platform Management standard provides a comprehensive, common
architecture for improved communication between management subsystem
components. Use of the standard allows hardware and software developers,
equipment providers and device manufacturers to quickly and
cost-effectively develop and deploy management subsystems. The Web
Services Management secification addresses the cost and complexity of
IT management by providing a common way for systems to access and
exchange management information across the entire IT infrastructure.
Deployments that support the specification enable managers in a variety
of IT environments to access devices on their networks remotely. Both
specifications provide sufficient efficiency and cost savings advantages
for IT managers industry-wide.
With the increasing need for flexibility, availability and performance
in today's organizations, standards-based management solutions for IT
professionals are becoming progressively more important throughout the
industry. The additional accreditation of ISO/IEC and ANSI/INCITS helps
to ensure that products and solutions based on standards meet the
necessary requirements and will perform adequately.
The Platform Management standard, ANSI INCITS 495-2012 can be purchased
through the ANSI website at www.ansi.org
or the INCITS website at www.incits.org.
The Web Services Management standard, ISO/IEC 17963:2013 can be
purchased through the ISO website at http://www.iso.org
or the IEC website at http://www.iec.ch.
