SFIA 7 INFOTECH EXPERIENCE

SFIA describes skills and competencies required by professionals in roles involved in information and communication technologies, digital transformation and software engineering.

SFIA was formally launched in 2000 and its provenance can be traced back to the 1980s and a number of collaborative skills and competency projects. These led to the SFIA Framework and the formation of the SFIA Foundation which has become an international not-for-profit organisation that now brings together the global community to develop and maintain the SFIA Framework for the benefit of all.

SFIA has become the globally accepted common language for the skills and competencies related to information and communication technologies, digital transformation and software engineering.

SFIA remains a collaboration – it has been regularly updated through a global open consultation process. People with real practical experience of developing and managing skills/competencies in corporate, public sector and educational environments from all around the world, contribute to ensuring SFIA remains relevant and true. It is built by industry and business for industry and business.

It is these components that set SFIA apart from other frameworks and has resulted in its adoption by governments, corporates and individuals in almost 200 countries. Its unique and ongoing success can also be attributed to:

  • Built and owned by the global user community
  • Global collaborative development
  • Global governance and steering boards
  • A 20+ year provenance and track record of successful use
  • An established ecosystem and trusted infrastructure
  • A neutral approach – it is not aligned to any specific technologies, vendors or professional bodies
