Top-Down Decomposition of the IT4IT Architecture

The IT4IT Standard is about defining the value stream, the associated functions, and the data objects needed to control the planning, development, delivery, and run management of Digital Products. This can be seen as a factory for digital.

In the rest of this chapter we will outline:

  • The groups of functionality needed for managing digital

  • The decomposition of the digital value stream

  • The necessary underlying functionality and data models

The detailed normative definition of this can be found in Chapters 5 to 10.
