This working group promotes the understanding and implementation of CIM-based message exchange. CIM enables the successful integration of enterprise applications through model-driven methods. The availability of the CIM model in UML makes it possible to implement comprehensive, flexible, and efficient communications between enterprise-scale applications. Using CIM-based message exchange in XML or RDF formats ensures that EAI investments become more cost-effective and reliable as the number of connections increase.
Three major objectives are:
To exchange best practices and information related to challenges experienced when implementing CIM for EAI;
To act as a resource for help desk requests and for EAI-related issues that sent to the various TC57 working groups;
To develop and finalize standard methodologies for the derivation of messages.
This working group depends on user input. All CIMug members from the user community should have at least one representative who is involved in this working group. Interested parties may contact the current co-chairs of this working group, Andre Maizener and Harry Garton.
The Enterprise Application Integration and Information group has held regular breakout sessions at CIM User Group meetings. This page is available for this group to add documents and announcements.
