The IT4IT™ Foundation Training is a two-day seminar that provides a structured approach to the development, procurement and management of services in a value chain-based framework.

IT4IT™ includes a reference architecture and an operating model based on a value chain for the business of IT (IT for IT). It provides detailed guidance on how to design, procure and implement IT to enable IT to deliver value-added IT services to its customers. IT4IT™ is the foundation for digital transformation within IT and thus the basis for successful DevOps implementations.

The learning objectives focus on knowledge and understanding of the terminology, structure and concepts of the IT4IT™ reference architecture. The course provides detailed guidelines for specification and interaction with a consistent service backbone model (common service lifecycle data model / context).

Finally, the course prepares participants for the IT4IT™ Foundation Certification, which consists of a 40 question multiple choice exam.
