Information Transparency Initiative (ITI)
ITI is an operational activity to improve ICANN's content governance and infrastructure. ITI's goals include:
- Creating an integrated ongoing, operational process to govern, preserve, organize, and secure ICANN's public content.
- Implementing this governance through a new document management system (DMS), the content foundation for ICANN ecosystem-wide governance.
- Surfacing this content through a new content management system (CMS), which will serve as the backbone for ICANN's external web properties.
- Enabling a multilingual user experience (in the U.N. six languages) and aim to adhere to W3C AA accessibility standards.
- Upgrading and establish a future-proof and content agnostic technology landscape.
Throughout this process, the ITI team has been actively engaging with ICANN stakeholders in usability sessions to gather community input. The ITI team will continue to provide opportunities for the community to provide feedback when new content is available.
If you have questions or feedback, please contact the ITI team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
