SFIA - e-CF Collaboration
The SFIA Foundation has developed and maintained the globlal IT skills framework since 2000. This has global reach with a userbase in over 180 countries with many thousands or corporates and individuals registered for licences. The EU has been working on the e-CF since around 2005. Both frameworks have similar aims and indeed many similarities, and of course some differences.
As part of SFIA's collaboration programme discussions have been held looking at a closer working relationship and possible merging. In 2016, BCS, the Chartered Institute for IT, commissioned a report to look at the two frameworks; compare them; provide a more detailled mapping between the two; note similarities and differences and discuss possible merging actions. This report has previously been widely distributed throughout the e-CF community.
This report provides significant input to the enhancement of e-CF (V3) during the e-CF V4 update activities along with the contents of SFIA V7 published June 2018 (all SFIA changes and discussions are public domain and readily available).
