Interoperability results, SQI

The ELENA project has resulted in the development and implementation of an interface solution, the Simple Query Interface, which seems to address a crucial problem, both from an industry and academic perspective. The forthcoming years will tell if SQI will reach critical mass in terms of industry adoption. Standardization will play a crucial role in this process. We expect that SQI will successfully pass the standardization process at all major standardizing bodies (CEN/ISSS, IEEE, and IMS). As a result of that we can further expect that SQI will be part of L[C]MS releases of all major vendors and open source communities by the end of 2007.

A benefit of this achievement relates to the reputation in the international standardisation committees of some of the consortium members and the ELENA project in general. The reputation gained during the project duration will allow for further contributions in the future. The contacts that has been established with similar initiatives has transformed into an active network that will continue to work on the interoperability issues in the future.
