OSLC (Open Services for Lifecycle Collaboration) is the key technology in Rational's integrations of ALM products (and beyond!). Rational isn't the only one using OSLC, nor is it only Rational products that it connects (see more on the OSLC Software page). Given its "key" role, you'd expect to hear a lot about OSLC at Innovate 2012, and you'd be right.
- There are 27 sessions that (at least mention) OSLC, and you can see them all at a glance.
- The Integration Center shows off integrations of IBM, partner, competitor, and open source software, all powered by OSLC.
- OSLC community participants, implementers, supporters, and their lucky guests have an opportunity to socialize, network and share their passion about solving the "integration problem" using OSLC at a Hospitality Suite.
- Integration developers, open source aficionados, and those just looking for a relaxed technical discussion should plan to join the Eclipse Lyo Chat.
I look forward to meeting many people who I've only worked with remotely at Innovate this year. I am also excited to meet many new people who are interested in OSLC for the first time anywhere!
