SFIA - e-CF Comparison & Mapping
The SFIA Foundation has developed and maintained the globlal IT skills framework since 2000. This has global reach with a userbase in over 170 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.
