Dramatically reduce procurement and integration costs through open standards based architectures
Welcome to Interoperable Open Architecture 2012!
Open architectures, as we have come to know them, are not necessarily as open as we might like. Whilst new modules can be interchanged and integrated with significantly less hassle than in closed systems, often the open systems still use proprietary code or data dictionaries that prevent third party installation of new sub systems.
INTEROPERABLE OPEN ARCHITECTURE looks to make open systems truly open by empowering procurement officers to base future platforms architectures on publically available standards. The result is an architecture where anyone with the necessary skills can design and install sub-systems into the platform, resulting in cheaper, faster and smarter procurement. When the time comes to modernise the platform or make it interoperable with other platforms, that process is faster and cheaper too.
