5 U.S. General Services Administration The Quest for Interoperability Interoperability can be defined as the ability of: …Diverse systems and organizations to work together (inter-operate). Wikipedia …Two or more systems or components to exchange information and to use the information that has been exchanged. IEEE …Two or more devices, components, or systems to exchange information in accordance with defined interface specifications and to use the information that has been exchanged in a meaningful way. GSA
6 U.S. General Services Administration The Starting Gate for Cross-Domain Interoperability Standard data model Common protocols and data exchange standards Standard data interface specifications to implement protocols Standard Testing Programs for interface specifications - Products Reference Implementations - data interface specifications Standard Testing Program for cross-domain data interface specifications
