Ng, Peter A.
This paper presents GenSIF, a Generic Systems Integration Framework. GenSIF features a pre-planned development process on a domain-wide basis and facilitates system integration and project coordination for very large, complex and distributed systems. Domain analysis, integration architecture design and infrastructure design are identified as the three main components of GenSIF. In the next step we map Beilcore's OSCA interoperability architecture, ANSA, IBM's SAA and Bull's DCM into GenSIF. Using the GenSIF concepts we compare each of these architectures.
GenSIF serves as a general framework to evaluate and position specific architecture. The OSCA architecture is used to discuss the impact of vendor architectures on application development.
All opinions expressed in this paper, especially with regard to the OSCA architecture, are the opinions of the author and do not necessarily reflect the point of view of any of the mentioned companies.
