This session examines the challenges and lessons learned along with the tools and methodologies that exist including open source and open public standards resources. The software delivery focus is on creating a robust and predictable information and semantic foundation that enables reliable and rapid business application delivery. The marketplace pressure is to develop applications in increasingly shorter time frames. Specific approaches such as NIEM will be discussed and actual implementation examples presented. The core challenge is understanding precisely what “Information Interoperability” means today.
