* Understand the key challenges associated with interoperability, extensibility and efficiency * Learn how data-centricity can address the challenges associated with designing Interoperable, Extensible and Efficient System Architectures * Master the key concepts behind data-centricity
Interoperability, extensibility and efficiency are increasingly required to enable and effectively operate Smart Energy Grids, Smart Cities, Exploration and Production Systems in the Oil and Gas industry, and international Air Traffic Control and Management Systems. Yet, these key architectural attributes are often an after-thought as opposed to axioms upon which the entire architecture is designed – with the result that many systems are non-interoperable, hard to extend and inefficient.
This Webcast will (1) precisely define the meaning of interoperability, extensibility and efficiency, (2) propose metrics for their evaluation, and (3) explain how these important properties can be "designed in" system architectures. We will introduce data-centricity as the paradigm and architectural patterns that foster interoperability, extensibility and efficiency and will explain how existing standards such as the OMG DDS can be used to implement data-centric architectures.
