Innovations Renews Object Management Group Sponsorship
Marks Seventh Consecutive Year of Continued
Support for OMG Technology Standards
Needham, MA - January 25, 2016 - The Object
Management Group® (OMG®) today announced that Real-Time
Innovations (RTI) has renewed its annual Gold level
sponsorship of the international, open membership,
not-for-profit standards consortium. As a supporter of OMG
since 1999, RTI has demonstrated its commitment and
leadership in many important standardization efforts,
especially in the area of data connectivity.
"Connectivity standards, such as OMG's
Data-Distribution Service™ (DDS™) are essential
components of the smart machines era," said Gerardo
Pardo-Castellote, CTO, Real-Time Innovations (RTI).
"For these standards to thrive, it is critical to have
open and independently run organizations. The OMG is a
leader in IIoT standards, thanks to its focus on Industrial
Systems, the management of the key DDS and UML® standards,
and its involvement with the Industrial Internet Consortium.
RTI has been very active at the OMG in standards
development, as task force chairs, and as a board member.
RTI is proud to renew our support as an OMG member and
annual sponsor for 2016."
RTI has served as co-chair of the Data-Distribution
Services Platform Special Interest Group (DDS PSIG). DDS
PSIG is responsible for the standardization of the OMG Data-Distribution
Service (DDS) specification - a protocol for
the IIoT which enables network interoperability for
connected machines, enterprise systems, and mobile devices.
It provides the scalability, performance, and Quality of
Service required to support IIoT applications. Learn more
about DDS at http://portals.omg.org/dds.
In addition to being an OMG member and sponsor, RTI also
serves on the OMG Board of Directors.
"We are proud to have RTI as both a member for its
industry-leading work in embedded middleware and IIoT
technologies, and as a sponsor for supporting the DDS
standard which is deployed in numerous systems today, from
mobile phones to banking, air combat sensor and firing
integration systems to operating room systems. I look
forward to RTI's continued engagement in standardization
efforts for years to come," said Dr. Richard Soley,
Chairman and CEO, OMG.
