A significant development in computing in the 1990s has been the move toward more distributed computer systems through network communication facilities. Software interoperability has become a major issue for organizations wishing to take advantage of private and open distributed computing facilities. Software interoperability technologies seek to smooth the integration of both legacy and new applications, even on heterogeneous hardware and software platforms. This report summarizes the significant issues and terminology used in the field of software interoperability, presents a range of diverse systems and methodologies used to integrate knowledge among programs, and concludes with a new view of interoperability and a novel way of addressing it.
