Chapter Summary

The Distributed Management Task Force, Inc. (DMTF) is a non-profit industry organization, whose aim is to develop, adopt, and promote interoperable management initiatives and standards for desktop, enterprise, and internet environments. The DMTF was established in 1992 in order to address the management complexities faced by businesses, due to the proliferation of disparate networks, systems, applications, and management software. The DMTF organization has four levels of public membership namely leadership, participation, monitoring, and sponsored. The authorities of the DMTF are the Board of Directors, the Technical Committee, the Marketing Committee, and the Interoperability Committee. The primary source of income for the DMTF is the annual dues paid by its members. Standard setting organizations are gaining an "increasingly important" role in transnational economic governance. The DMTF plays an important role in developing and unifying management standards and initiatives for desktop, enterprise, and internet environments.
