Interoperating Platforms: What is Interoperation & why should I care?

If you read my “Don’t Wait, Integrate” and “Go Native AND Integrate” blog series, then welcome to the sequels.  Unlike most sequels, these won’t be just a rehash of the originals.  There is so much new ground to cover!  Platform evolution, cloud commerce and middleware, indirect access, and IoT are on the minds of many IT professionals these days.  In this initial post, I plan to reframe the integration problem in terms of interoperation.

Characteristic Simplicity

Characteristics are one of the fundamental building blocks of Variant Configuration.  As building blocks they have to interact with all the other objects in the system; classes, materials, tables, and dependencies.  In creating them it’s always best to make them as simple as possible (but no simpler).  This gives them a flexibility that can be exploited throughout the model.
