Please Note: The DMTF group formerly known as the Scalable Platforms Management Forum (SPMF) has been renamed the Redfish Forum.
The DMTF has released its new Platform Level Data Model (PLDM) for Redfish® Device Enablement Specification as a Work in Progress, inviting public review and comment. This standard enables a management controller to present Redfish-conformant management of I/O adapters in a server, without the need for code specific to each adapter family/vendor/model.
Continuing its commitment to industry outreach and education, DMTF will participate in the Open Compute Project (OCP) U.S. Summit, March 20-21, as an exhibitor and with numerous presentations representing the Redfish® standard.

As we wrap up DMTF’s fiscal year, it is time to begin the renewal process for DMTF membership. Your Company’s ongoing participation in DMTF’s efforts to define and develop interoperable management standards is greatly needed and appreciated. The organization had a banner year in 2017 and we are looking forward to an even better 2018. DMTF Board Chair Jon Hass will share his thoughts on the year ahead in our upcoming February newsletter, so keep an eye on your inbox and be sure to read it!
DMTF will host its Alliance Partner Technical Symposium (APTS) from July 23-27 in Portland, Oregon. APTS is co-hosted with our alliance partner, Storage Network Industry Alliance (SNIA). The symposium includes face-to-face meetings focused on technical topics and addresses the technical works of interest to DMTF’s alliance partners. You can register today!
DMTF’s aggressive development of Redfish® continues, with Version 2017.3 now available. The goal of Redfish is to publish a standard API to meet customer demands for simple and secure management in modern Software Defined Data Center (SDDC) environments, and the latest release includes updates to both the Specification and the Schemas.
The latest release of the Common Information Model (CIM) Schema, version 2.50 is now available. This news marks an impressive DMTF milestone - fifty updates to the Common Information Model (CIM) since the launch of 2.0.
This widely-used standard provides a common definition of management information for systems, networks, applications and services. The fifty releases are evidence of DMTF’s ongoing commitment to keeping CIM up-to-date to address the latest industry needs.
DMTF and Broadband Forum (BBF) have formed an alliance to help ensure the two organizations’ standards are coordinated and aligned in order to enable broadband operators and users to deploy cloud services and applications.
Each year, I have the privilege of reviewing the many accomplishments of the DMTF for the past twelve months. I’m happy to share the top milestones for 2017 – another tremendous year for the organization!
