SFIA - EU ICT Role Profiles
The EU has published a description of ICT Role Profiles. These are presented in the douciment: CWA 16458-1:2018 European ICT Professional Role Profiles – Part 1: 30 ICT Profiles. This presents 30 role profilts.
The SFIA Foundation is collaborating with the eCF project in this and is looking to produce a mapping of these roles to SFIA Professional Skills and Generic Attributes.
Note: There are very good reasons why, over the last 20 years, the SFIA Foundation has resisted publishing standard role profiles however the user community is asking for guidance and so it is felt necessary to share this information with appropriate caveats for sensible usage. This work is only for illustration and information - the SFIA Mappings are not meant to be prescriptive. The SFIA Foundation is led by industry and business. Industry recognises that role definitions may vary quite considerable between two organisations even though the role name may be the same - this is because context is key.
The attached document is the first sample of this collaboration, looking at just one EU ICT role. This single role is probably a very simplified picture as esperience from the global SFIA community would suggest that there is much more than just the single EU ICT Role, with a family of roles which is what is more likely to be found in a real-world industry or business scenario. In addition, while this sample role and role family is presented to align with the EU definition published, it is very unlikely that an organisation would have the same skills profile for their roles as presented here.
