Figure 1. IT4IT Value Streams Model

The IT4IT Value Streams, as shown in IT4IT Value Streams Model, are integrated streams of capabilities within the Architecture Reference Model. They support a holistic lifecycle approach for the planning, creation, delivery, modification, operation, support, and retirement of a Digital Product, combining all of the necessary capabilities to deliver value and support to the dependent parts of the Digital Product lifecycle.

There are seven value streams defined:

Value streams interact or depend on other value streams to support the Digital Product throughout the entire lifecycle.
