Real-Time Innovations Renews Sponsorship of Object Management Group
Continues as a Gold Level Annual Sponsor

Needham, MA - 12-30-14 - The Object Management Group® (OMG®) today announced that Real-Time Innovations (RTI) has renewed their annual sponsorship of the consortium. As a member and Gold sponsor of the internationally-renowned technology standards consortium, RTI continues to demonstrate its commitment and leadership in establishing standards throughout the technology industry.

"OMG has played a significant role in the success of DDS, the data connectivity IIoT standard," said Gerardo Pardo-Castellote, CTO of RTI. "Over the last 10 years we've assumed leadership roles in the OMG. RTI identified the importance of security in the IIoT early, and as a result, we launched Connext DDS Secure, the first secure peer-to-peer messaging protocol for IoT. Standards bodies like the OMG serve a key role in this process by ensuring that interoperability and security standards are defined and used in a way that helps us fulfill the promise of the IIoT."

An OMG member organization since 1999, RTI has served as co-chair to the Data Distribution Services Platform Special Interest Group (DDS PSIG). DDS PSIG is responsible for the standardization of the Data Distribution Services (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 https://www.dds-foundation.org/

In addition to being an OMG member and sponsor, RTI serves on the OMG Board of Directors.

"RTI has been a long-time supporter of OMG and has participated in many important standardization efforts," said Dr. Richard Soley, Chairman and CEO, OMG. "With their expertise in embedded middleware and IIoT technologies, we are proud to have them as both member and sponsor and look forward to their continued involvement in standardization efforts for years to come."
