The Alliance Partner Technical Symposium

DMTF hosted the Alliance Partner Technical Symposium (APTS), annually in July. SNIA was a longtime partner for APTS. APTS provided an opportunity for the membership to meet face-to-face, in an era of virtual meetings.

During APTS, working groups hosted working body meetings. DMTF and SNIA held their board meetings at APTS. Alliance Partners were invited to deliver keynote presentations regarding their organization. Alliance Partners were also invited to host meetings, as space permited.

Become an Alliance Partner

Alliance Partner

DMTF values working with affiliated industry organizations, and the Alliance Partner membership is a way for DMTF to formalize synergistic relationships with other standards groups. Strictly for not-for-profit organizations in the standards arena, the Alliance Partner membership level is offered at no charge. This membership category is intended to clarify roles and provide mutual benefit to the organizations and DMTF. Alliance Partner membership is an important way DMTF is helping unify management initiatives and develop more solid partnerships.
