August 18, 2020. Reksoft, one of the leading Russian software developers, today announced it is now a member of The Open Group, a vendor – and technology – neutral consortium that develops technology standards and certifications. Reksoft is the first Russian IT company to join The Open Group.
Reksoft has joined IT4IT™ Forum, which produces the IT4IT Reference Architecture Standard of The Open Group. The IT4IT Standard provides a reference architecture built on value streams for improving and automating product and service delivery in the digital enterprise. The Open Group is the premier source of open and vendor neutral standards in the digital market, publishing the IT4IT™ Reference Architecture Standard, The Open Group Agile Architecture Framework™ Standard, the Digital Practitioner Body of Knowledge™ Standard, and security standards.
“Many of our large clients face the challenge of bringing new digital products to market that are perceived as valuable to customers and internal stakeholders. Yet, in a lot of cases, customer problems have already been solved: either the solution has been developed within another industry or can found by creatively reworking accumulated experience,” commented Alexander Egorov, CEO, Reksoft. “To address this challenge, the value stream based IT4IT Reference Architecture outlines how IT management can operate as curator for a business service portfolio and focus on business outcomes. We realized that we have used the main elements of the IT4IT standard in our projects for a long time. Joining the IT4IT Forum will therefore only strengthen our knowledge and potential by providing access to the best expertise and recognized global practices from various industries.”
“IT departments today oversee hundreds of projects that have direct economic impact on and increase the manageability of businesses,” said Linda Kavanagh, Director, IT4IT Forum, The Open Group. “Through providing our members with a collaboration forum for thought leadership, we are able to deliver a harmonized ecosystem of open standards for businesses driving to become digital. The Open Group is excited to welcome Reksoft as our first member from Russia. We are confident that together we can enhance the perception of IT in Russian enterprises and increase the adoption of the IT4IT Standard.”
