Definition

As per wikipedia;

"Interoperability is a property of a product or system, whose interfaces are completely understood, to work with other products or systems, present or future, without implementation or any restrictions in access. While the term was initially defined for information technology or systems engineering services to allow for information exchange, a more broad definition takes into account social, political, and organizational factors that impact system to system performance."

Interfaces

What "interfaces" does DSpace have?

Input

  1. Submit content using the XMLUI submission system.
  2. Export/Import content using the XMLUI administrative interface.

System Interfaces

  1. Submit content using the web API.
  2. Export/Import using the packages format.
  3. Export/Import using the simple archive format.
  4. Export/Import metadata using the XMLUI batch metadata editor.
  5. Backup and restore using the AIP format.
  6. Submit items using the SWORD interface.

Output

  1. Allow users to "download" content via the XMLUI interface.
  2. Export/Import content using the XMLUI administrative interface.

System Interfaces

  1. Allow other systems to modify content using the web API.
  2. Export/Import using the packages format.
  3. Export/Import using the simple archive format.
  4. Export/Import metadata using the XMLUI batch metadata editor.
  5. Backup and restore using the AIP format.
  6. Allow other systems to "harvest" content via the OAI interface.

Conclusion

DSpace has many interfaces that allow for content interoperability with other systems.

In addition DSpace is built using open systems to allow for technical interoperability with other open systems.
