Here we show an expanded view of the IT part of the
(technology) Environment, to allow us to map COBIT® ITIL® and IT4IT® in more
COBIT is an IT Governance & Management Framework, and covers
four main domains:
Evaluate Direct, Monitor (EDM) and
Align, Plan Organise (APO) map to the
Management domain of the Roadmapping level of POET.
Build, Acquire, Implement (BAI)
maps to the Management domain of the Roadmapping Initiating, Elaborating,
Constructing and Transitioning levels of POET.
Monitor, Evaluate, Assess (MEA)
maps to the Governance domain/interface between the Roadmapping Initiating,
Elaborating, Constructing Transitioning and Using levels of POET.
Deliver Service & Support (DSO)
maps to the Using domain of the Operation/Support domains of DOTS.
ITIL is a Service Management Framework. In its original form,
it only covered the Service Operation or Management area, but over recent years
has grown up the transformation stack although its domain is still only really IT
Service Strategy maps to the Roadmapping phase.
Service Design maps to the Initiating and Elaborating phases.
Service Transition maps to the Constructing and Transitioning
Service Operations maps to the Operation domain.
IT4IT is a reference model for the IT used by the IT
department of an Enterprise. Its width is narrow because it shows that it does
not cover the IT for the entire Enterprise, but only the IT used for the IT
department of the Enterprise. It does, however, extend up into the Roadmapping
and Strategy phases, and down into the support area also.
Strategy to Portfolio maps to the Strategising and Roadmapping
Requirement to Deploy maps to the Initiating, Elaborating and
Request to Fulfil maps to the Operation domain.
Detect to Correct maps to the Support domain.
DevOps is a software development framework. It is a mindset,
a culture, and a set of technical practices that combines software development
(Dev) and information technology operations (Ops) to shorten the systems
development life cycle while delivering features, fixes, and updates frequently
.in close alignment with business objectives. Key aspects of DevOps are:
Coding – Code development and review, source code management
tools, code merging
Building – Continuous integration tools, build status
Testing – Continuous testing tools that provide feedback on
Packaging – Artefact repository, application pre-deployment
Releasing – Change management, release approvals, release
Configuring – Infrastructure configuration and management,
infrastructure as code tools
Monitoring – Applications performance monitoring, end-user
