2011 has been another great year for DMTF. We have produced many new specifications, over a dozen new profiles and four major new releases of CIM.  Our work in the Cloud Computing space is really kicking into to gear with several Work-In-Progress (WIP) releases of our new Cloud Infrastructure Management Interface (CIMI) specification, along with the first whitepaper also released as a WIP from the Software License Management Incubator. In addition, the Cloud Auditing Data Federation Working Group (CADFWG) has been hard at work and we should see some of their new specifications announced in early 2012.
