What is interoperability?

Interoperability enables the transfer and use of information in a uniform and efficient manner across multiple organizations and information technology systems. Interoperability provides the ability of two or more systems or components to exchange information and to use the information that has been exchanged. From a technical perspective, interoperability is fostered through the consistent application of design principles and design standards to address a specific mission problem. This establishes an environment in which services offered by disparate projects can be assembled into a variety of composition configurations to help automate a range of analytic tasks.


Role of the PM-ISE

To facilitate system interoperability and create safe information sharing networks, the Program Manager for the Information Sharing Environment has compiled a living series of tools, templates, and guides that include a common architecture methodology, repeatable exchange patterns, and harmonized standards and specifications to create a common language to describe interoperability.
