IT4IT™

A central repository preconfigured to the IT4IT Reference Architecture, notation and framework

Book a Demo

The IT4IT Accelerator is a package containing all the tools required to successfully implement the IT4IT framework following a value chain approach. Instead of wasting time and resources building an IT4IT-aligned architecture from scratch, you can opt to receive iServer already aligned to the framework.

The notation and framework support included in the accelerator, together with the valuable analytical and modeling tools in iServer, enable IT professionals to start optimizing the IT environment immediately by building on already existing processes.

Watch the IT4IT Reference Architecture Video

Released by the Open Group in late 2015, the IT4IT™ vision is a Reference Architecture for managing the business of IT, consisting of a formal IT operating model based on the value chain concept that revolutionized manufacturing, known as the IT Value Chain.

 
 

A Central Repository for IT4IT

iServer provides support for the IT4IT specification in the form of a preconfigured central repository with Visio modeling stencils and diagram templates. It also provides core models and examples necessary for implementing the IT4IT specification. This includes the IT4IT Reference Architecture Model Levels 1 and 2.

IT4IT Value Chain

iServer’s IT4IT software uses a Value Chain approach to help organizations standardize their IT landscape documentation and modeling by using The Open Group’s IT4IT informal modeling notation, and ArchiMate 2.1. It provides the IT4IT Value Chain Model, decomposed into value streams and components via drill down diagrams.

Notation and Framework Support

iServer provides full support for the ArchiMate notation to help model details of the IT4IT components. iServer also offers full integration with other reference frameworks, methodologies and standards. Integration with the TOGAF ® ADM is available through a governed repository structure and fully documented Architecture Development Method (ADM).

Other frameworks and standards that can be integrated include the ITIL 2011 framework, COBIT for IT governance best practice, Lean process improvement, and SABSA for IT security guidance.

What Our Customers Are Saying

  • Highly Customisable yet Intuitive EA Platform

    We are a technology company who develop an IT system that is used within the UK utilities market. The reason for our wishing to implement iServer was twofold, firstly to maintain and track a detailed model of our product and secondly to allow us to implement a TOGAF based architecture function.

    The vendor is very responsive to any and all issues I report. They take the time to ensure your environment is setup properly the first time. Training was very focused and they were willing to answer all questions I threw at them.

  • Easy to implement and use. Realizing immediate value.

    Before implementing iServer we managed our work on multiple disconnected spreadsheets, powerpoint and Visio diagrams. Our architecture practice had matured to the point that we needed a tool. We had adopted TOGAF as a framework. One of the things that attracted us to iServer was the fact that we could easily import our existing work

  • As it's a Visio based tool, we are able to roll-out this out across the whole business

    iServer has become an important asset for the organisation. We are using it to support our documentation and ensure governance policy adherance. There are lot of out-of-box features available which makes meant we were up and running very quickly.

  • Flexible, user-friendly tool which is highly configurable and affordable.

    iServer has met our requirements and expectations. Orbus have provided attentive and timely support throughout our relationship. Have seen many of our suggestions for product improvement added to the development pipeline and then added to the iServer product suite. In the past promises of new versions and features were not meeting promised release dates, but over the last couple of years Orbus has done a much better job of delivering against their roadmaps
