Distributed Management Task Force (DMTF)

  The Common Information Model (CIM) [#!cim22!#] introduces a management information model that claims to integrate the information models of existing management architectures; CIM acts as an umbrella that allows to exchange management information in an unrestricted and loss-free way. The Core Model [#!corewp1!#] gives a formal definition of a service and allows hierarchical and modular composition of services consisting of other services. However, the focus is on technical details of the service implementation and does not include a notion of domains, such as customer and provider.
