Active new specification work for Change Management has transitioned to OASIS as the OASIS OSLC-CCM Technical Committee (TC)



The goal of this effort is to define a common set of resources, formats and RESTful services for the use in Change Management tools and use by ALM, PLM, Integrated Service Management(ISM) and DevOps tools.

Change Management (CM) resources define the change requests and tasks of the software and hardware delivery lifecycle. These resources relate and interact with many other resources, such as project, product, category, etc.


The specifications will be developed iteratively by first prioritizing scenarios and focusing on a minimal set of key scenarios. Once these scenarios have been satisfied by specification and proof of implementation, more scenarios will be considered.

Note: iterative specification validation will be occurring as the drafts evolve before finalization. The goal is to have at least 2 implementations of the specification before it is considered finalized.
