In order to facilitate the continued development of the DMTF CIM Schema by our Alliance Partners, the Schema Working Group has made the CR tool available for download (38MB .zip) The tool will be updated with the latest version of the CIM Schema upon release.  Please be sure to use the latest version of the tool when generating CRs against the CIM Schema.

Other Alliance Activity

Featured items on the Other Alliance Activity page include the Cloud Wiki, SCRM Wiki, and Liaison relationships with other Standard Setting Organizations (SSOs).

Work Register Template

The DMTF board of directors approved a new work register template (PDF) (also available in a .doc format) on August 28, 2014. The template is available to help the DMTF and new alliance partners to define the scope, milestones, and other information that is pertinent to the partnership.  Please review the latest version of DSP4003 to assist with the work register process.

Become an Alliance Partner

The DMTF values working with affiliated industry organizations, and the Alliance Partner membership is a way for the 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. Alliance Partner members may participate in DMTF working groups as a non-voting member, and in the DMTF Marketing Committee, Technical Committee and the appropriate DMTF Working Groups as a non-voting member. Alliance Partner members also have access to the DMTF members-only Web site and member email lists. This membership category is intended to clarify roles and provide mutual benefit to the organizations and the DMTF. Alliance Partner membership is an important way the DMTF is helping unify management initiatives and develop more solid partnerships.
