Service Lifecycle Data Object

(Noun) Data or records produced and/or consumed to advance or control the service model as it progresses through its lifecycle phases.

Description: Data objects can take a physical or digital form and are produced, consumed, or modified by functional components. Within the IT4IT™ Reference Architecture there are two classifications of data objects:

  • Key – those that are essential to managing or advancing the service lifecycle

  • Auxiliary – those that are important but not essential; see also Functional Component
