Distributed Management Task Force

NetApp has leadership roles in DMTF, which protects companies’ IT investments by promoting multivendor interoperability.

The DMTF (Distributed Management Task Force) enables works to bring the IT industry together to collaborate on the development, validation, and promotion of systems management standards. The group spans the industry with 160 member companies and organizations, including more than 4,000 active participants in 43 countries.

With this deep and broad reach, DMTF creates standards that enable interoperable IT management among multivendor systems, tools, and solutions within the enterprise. Standards allow forward-thinking CIOs and IT managers to select the products that best suit their needs today—regardless of vendor—while helping to ensure that no proprietary constraints arise when new systems are put in place in the future.

NetApp Participation

The DMTF Board of Directors is led by 17 innovative, industry-leading technology companies, including NetApp. NetApp representatives also serve as vice chair of the Marketing Committee and in various technical working groups.
