PrismTech(TM), a leader in high-performance middleware and development tools, announced the launch of the DDS Forum an online initiative dedicated to bringing together the worldwide community of Data Distribution Service (DDS) and real-time, Quality of Service (QoS) enabled publish subscribe middleware architects, developers and practitioners. The DDS Forum will provide a platform to share views, experiences and know how for data-centric integration in today’s most demanding SOA and net-centric applications.
While the Object Management Group(TM)’s (OMG(TM)’s) DDS standard continues to gain momentum within its traditional core defense and aerospace markets, its applicability as a high performance, real-time Quality of Service (QoS) publish subscribe message-oriented middleware and data-centric integration infrastructure supporting both Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) and net-centric applications is also increasingly being recognized. Low-latency, high-throughput and high availability data distribution, demanding business event processing, and coherent distributed data management across distributed systems are common problems found in today’s telecommunications, transportation, manufacturing and financial services industries which DDS can easily solve.
With this increasing interest in DDS and associated middleware technologies it has become apparent that there is a need for a neutral unbiased go-to place to bounce ideas amongst like-minded people.
The new DDS Forum has been designed to address this need by allowing both newcomers to DDS, seeking to educate and familiarize themselves, and DDS veterans, looking for advanced expertise using the technology, to benefit by sharing views, experiences and know how and to fully maximize their investment in the technology.
“I welcome PrismTech’s initiative to offer an interactive forum to share knowledge and source the most up-to-date industry information around our DDS standard,” said Richard Mark Soley, Ph.D., chairman and CEO of Object Management Group. “This will appeal to a broad spectrum of the DDS community and perfectly complements our own portal where information related to the specification itself can be found.”
“We are very excited to be able to facilitate this platform to share ideas and experiences on DDS middleware,” said Dr. Angelo Corsaro, Product Marketing Manager, PrismTech, and co-chair of the OMG DDS Special Interest Group. “This new forum continues PrismTech’s long standing dedication to open-standards and community based initiatives as an active OMG contributor and recognized thought leader in distributed middleware infrastructure.”
