You are here: Quality of Service > Work Area: Application Manageability and Quality of Service
Offered as a Separate Work Area or as Part of the QoS Task Force Work Package
Objectives of this Work Area are to: Arrive at standards or guidelines for integrated QoS that account for Real-Time Requirements with particular attention to:
The near-term plan for the project is to first distinguish the unmet needs of customers through open discussion, document the requirements as they apply to the various real-time programming enclaves, and issue an Open Group challenge based on those requirements. The challenge is expected to be to vendors who are currently addressing the Real-Time / QoS problem in one or more of the various programming enclaves. Through the challenge, customers and vendors will identify the gaps between what customers require in the QoS/Real-Time space and what vendors are supplying. These gaps will lead to guidelines and standards where appropriate.
The Major Project in this area
The Vendor Challenge
The Steering Committee for the Challenge was formed in July, 2002 and will, over the next quarter look at the requirements for issuing a challenge, at defining the scope, and at choosing a scenario for the Challenge. Participants will be submitting use case scenarios over the next quarter, which will be evaluated by the steering committee with recommendations for selection on a particular scenario to be made by Q1, 2003. The goal is for participants to produce a Challenge Requirements Document and Issue the Challenge by Q2, 2003.
This is a great opportunity to join in with Real-Time Vendors and Customers to get requirements heard, and to work together to create a challenge, based on those requirements, which vendors will be proud to meet - and for which they will be recognized.
