History of the TBM Council

The TBM Council was born out of Apptio's biannual TBM Summits—where many CIOs, including members of the founding Board of Directors, expressed the need for an independently governed peer community of TBM practitioners. Founded in 2012 as a nonprofit organization led by an independent board of business technology leaders, the TBM Council is focused on developing a definitive framework for managing the business of IT, establishing standards, and providing ongoing collaboration and education opportunities.
