PROSTEP OpenPDM OSLC Adapter Product Overview

The PROSTEP OpenPDM OSLC Adapter makes your PLM system(s) available to the OSLC world. It offers OSLC standard services, especially for those PLM systems which don’t  offer native ones. The adapter is an add-on for the OpenPDM integration framework which provides connectors to a wide range of systems. The OpenPDM OSLC services can be integrated in any OSLC consuming applications. The gap between ALM and PLM can be closed.

This presentation provides details on the OpenPDM OSLC Adapter including overview, reference project and technical information. For more details  contact

DevOps in the Cloud: Addressing Integration Challenges

This webinar is hosted by the Cloud Standards Customer Council (CSCC).


Business pressures around automation and rapid deployment have fueled the practice of DevOps to bring together not just people, organizations and processes but the tools and applications to enable it. All these pressures are made worse when hand offs are manual and tools don't facilitate the automation and collaboration needed.  This session will discuss these problems and how the OSLC (Open Services for Lifecycle Collaboration) initiative is working to address them.  Learn about who is participating in the community, why it is an important technology for DevOps integration, and how you can make use of it today and influence its shape for the future.

In this webinar, we'll explore how various integration approaches and ways to collaborate on tool and application integration have fallen short in the enterprise and are even more limiting in cloud environments. With the nature of the integration problem understood, we'll look at how OSLC offers a solution based on the architecture of the web through scenario-driven, minimalist, specifications created by an open community.  While we look at OSLC, we'll focus on how it is being used today, and may be used tomorrow, for various cloud applications and management systems. Additionally we'll provide an overview of the latest news from the OSLC community (including progress towards standardizing at OASIS), answer your questions, and show you the many ways you can participate and contribute to OSLC too.

DOORS Enlightenment - Requirements Driven Verification and Validation using OSLC

With DOORS, there are various ways to ensure your requirements have been verified and validated. Open Services for Lifecycle Collaboration (OSLC) is the foundation of the integration between requirements and the test domains. Come and see how OSLC is used to link requirements and testing, helping development teams to:

  • Focus on delivering testable requirements
  • Ensure that tested deliverables meet customer requirements
  • Simplify impact and coverage analysis
  • This presentation includes a demonstration of a typical work flow between Rational DOORS and Rational Quality Manager.

OSLC ALM-PLM Interoperability

View the YouTube playlist with all five parts.

View the entire single video on Vimeo.

Mike Loeffler, Systems Engineering IT specialist at General Moters, describes results of ongoing work to evaluate interoperability between Teamcenter and various tools from the Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) domain, using the emerging Open Services for Lifecycle Collaboration (OSLC) Standard. The standard is already in use to enable collaboration between Change Management, Requirements Management, Source Code Control and other ALM domain tools. To support a complex Mechatronic product (i.e. an Automobile), the standard must also support collaboration with PLM domain tools. Development of this connector has exposed the need for OSLC extensions to cover concepts such as Product Definition and Structure, Effectivity and Variants.

SAP Connector: Join SAP Solution Manager and IBM CLM using OSLC

This talk will give a background and description of the IBM Rational Connector for SAP Solution Manager, covering its inception as a custom application for the Blue Harmony project (IBM's deployment of SAP packaged applications for the IBM back office, the largest single deployment of SAP packaged applications) and its evolution into a commercial product.

Following this background material, there will be a live demonstration of the features of the connector. The talk will conclude with a discussion of the design of the connector and the approach, development and testing used to implement the connector, the use the connector makes of OSLC interfaces to the CLM applications, and the connector’s partial implementation of the OSLC CM specification.

Using OSLC in the context of Strategic Planning for IT

(Due to a technical error, there is no recording. We have posted the .pdf slides and some notes from the presentation.) 

The Strategic Planning Platform (SPP) framework is the next evolution in IT management. It is designed to systematically manage change across an organisation. It draws upon new trends in Web technology such as OSLC to facilitate a more decentralised approach to analyzing and prioritizing market changes and business demands. The framework helps organisations understand how they operate today to manage future change. By embracing EA, IT and business into the change process, an organisation can elevate decision-making to a strategic level. IT becomes a full partner in the process.

Systems Engineering Tools Integration and Interoperability using OSLC in the SPRINT project

(We had an error with the recording. Here’s a .pdf of the slides.) Systems engineering such as in the A&D industry is not only challenged by the increasing complexity of modern cyber-physical systems but also by the engineering process itself. This process includes the collaboration between globally distributed engineering teams operating within different companies and domains. The SPRINT (Software Platform for Integration of Engineering and Things) project addresses these needs by building a collaboration platform based on the interoperability technologies proposed by OSLC. The SPRINT collaboration platform provides a seamless, large-scale integration of system engineering tools and services.
