2015 Year in Review and Look to the Future with DMTF President Jeff Hilland and DMTF Board Chair Jon Hass
As we cast a backwards glance over the past year, we see tremendous growth and accomplishment within the DMTF. Set upon the building blocks of the previous year, the organization continued to thrive as a relevant and vital organization hard at work.
Register now to join us on Tuesday, February 23, for the live webinar, “Modeling Systems Management Data the Redfish Way.” The DMTF’s Redfish Specification, released in August 2015, takes a modern approach to systems management using RESTful principles and a focus on developer usability. The Redfish data model differs from previous efforts by prioritizing end-user usability and scalability to enable management at the data center level.

The DMTF recently published the latest release of the Common Information Model (CIM) Schema, version 2.45. This widely used standard provides a common definition of management information for systems, networks, applications and services, and allows for extensions.
Last week the DMTF participated in ETSI’s Industry Specification Group for Network Functions Virtualization (ETSI NFV) ground-breaking workshop on aligning cloud-centric and network-centric initiatives to ensure successful realization of NFV through automation. The workshop, hosted by CableLabs in Louisville, Colorado, brought together leading Standards Development Organizations (SDOs) and Open Source communities in an ‘NFV Village.’
The Open Software Defined Data Center (OSDDC) Incubator recently released the white paper, “Software Defined Data Center Definition 1.0,” reviewing industry standards for the SDDC. The paper outlines use cases, definitions, and identifies existing standards gaps, as well as possible architectures for the various implementations of Software Defined Data Center (SDDC).
We are thrilled to welcome Mark Nicolas to his role within the DMTF. Mark became involved with the DMTF through the Scalable Platforms Management Forum and then continued as the Board of Directors representative from Emerson Network Power in April 2015.
