The IO Model (not input output!)

I have recently been introduced to the MS IO model.

It was developed by MS as a simplification of a Gartner model. The aim is to provide a model which helps to define the state of different sections (and overall) of a companies IT infrastructure.

This will then help people plan projects around moving through the models four stages which each in turn, provide cost savings and a more flexible managable IT infrastructure.

This will be big in the next couple of years as MS aim to drive their new System Center range.

For more info I recommend you have a look here:
