MANAGING INTEROPERABILITY WITH IRIS
The need for operational units to exchange information between national and international systems has led to the development of numerous ‘information exchange standards’ with many communities unwittingly defining the same operational concepts in different ways. Multiple versions of standards are also in circulation and a lack of knowledge about which version of a standard is being used by which system and the result is a reduced awareness about which systems are interoperable.
Agreeing on a shared language
IRIS Standards management is a web-enabled approach to the management and analysis of interoperability standards.
To combat interoperability challenges, there is a need to coordinate the activities of all the stakeholders in the information exchange domain, from procurement organisations though to end users. Providing an environment, managed by the standards organisation, for these stakeholders to collaborate needs to be at the core of the solution.

Improving stakeholder communication
Systematic has utilised its extensive knowledge in this field, combining its existing standards management capabilities and considerable user experience, to produce Systematic IRIS Standards Management.
This web-based capability sits at the heart of the stakeholder community, providing them with a range of online services to access the latest and most relevant standards information. Whether a stakeholder is accessing the system to create/update existing standards information or retrieve information on how a standard should be implemented, they can feel assured that their shared, centralised repository contains the most up-to-date information.
