The Road to Interoperability


Today we find ourselves at an inflection point.   Development processes are beyond the point of a single design, but rather they reflect families of designs. These designs are leveraged on multiple products for multiple configurations.

Interoperability must be the ability to leverage our designs across our products including flexibility of our tooling with and across disciplines.

The road to Interoperability is a gradient from migration, exchangeability, to enterprise repository linking. Our team at Sodius-Willert have invested in navigating the path with speed, efficiency, and pragmatics. In this session, we will identify the imperatives to the levels interoperability including examples. These examples include automatic migration of models (RSA, Rhapsody, EA) to MagicDraw, integrating the ALM and PLM worlds via OSLC, and the ability to index, search, and report across linked enterprise repositories. Each represents a form of interoperability that grant capability (with some constraints) to their users. With these examples we will discuss the limits of some of existing tool technology platforms, we will define and address why Enterprise Configuration Management is critical to the success of Interoperability, and how Enterprise imperatives, such as security and scalability, must be managed to reach the holistic vision of Enterprise Interoperability.
