Of, by, for, software architects

IT Architecture Standard Under Review

The International Association of Software Architects (IASA), a global non-profit association for professional IT architects that is vendor and technology agnostic, is set to deliver the first IT Architecture standard ever developed, controlled, and owned by IT architects.

This standard, entitled the "Foundations Reference Model" (FRM), represents a fundamental shift in the IT industry away from vendor initiated and managed standards, towards best practices controlled and operated by the professionals using them.

What makes my client, IASA, different is that their standard is entirely driven by the software architects that will have to live with it, thus making it technology agnostic and vendor neutral.
