The final version of MOF v 4.0 has been published.
MOF 4.0 is practical guidance for IT organizations contained in a set of 23 documents. With this release, MOF now reflects a single, comprehensive IT service lifecycle—it helps IT professionals connect service management principles to everyday IT tasks and activities and ensures alignment between IT and the business.
