About the ILM Initiative:

The ILM Initiative (ILMI) was created by SNIA’s Data Management Forum (DMF) to allow industry leaders and participants to come together into a community to focus on unifying, defining, implementing, and teaching the world about our vision for ILM and its impact on information and storage management. The ILMI operates as an online virtual community, sharing work efforts, training programs and outreach services such as research, whitepapers and training, and educational courses. This portal’s chief objective is to serve IT professionals and will define and build certification programs, education, training and a world-class collaborative information portal with global influence and reach. The ILMI’s goal is to build the knowledge base and training capabilities to become the worldwide authority on all aspects of ILM, helping all of the SNIA’s constituents (vendors, IT, regulatory agencies, and channel partners) to better understand and implement ILM-based solutions.
