Policy Policy Working Group

Working Group Chair

  • Mark Carlson, DMTF Fellow

Working Group Description

Policy-based management provides an abstraction that enables the definition of system behaviors, independent of implementations. Policies can be used to specify resource management configuration directives and, at a higher abstraction layer, they can be used to specify user experience management directives.

The DMTF’s Policy Working Group continues to develop rule- based mechanisms for highly scalable management of heterogeneous systems. This includes modeling of policy rules using generic event-condition-action classes, as well as evolution of the Common Information Model’s (CIM’s) Policy Model.
