The Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) recently announced the formation of the TR-60 ICT Lifecycle Management Committee, which will develop standards for information communications technology (ICT) systems, infrastructure, and services.
The association says TR-60 will be responsible for the development and maintenance of voluntary standards that address the management of technology for qualifying vertical markets, focusing on planning, documentation, design, remediation and operation of ICT systems, infrastructure and services.
TIA’s standards vice president David Bain stated, “The rapid development, release and adoption of new ICT equipment and infrastructure has resulted in inconsistent technology management. By addressing the root-cause issues with a suite of technology management standards, the TR-60 Committee will drive global change management and improve technology’s role in achieving organizational business objectives.”
TIA chief executive officer Wes Johnston added, “TIA is proud to lead the way in developing industry standards that will drive global change management and improve technology’s role in achieving business objectives. This new committee is part of TIA’s larger commitment to invest in, and stay ahead of, changing industry needs as the ICT landscape evolves.”
