Global eBusiness Interoperability Test Beds (GITB)

Visions and Objectives

The long-term vision is to establish a shared and global eBusiness Interoperability Test Bed (GITB) infrastructure to support conformance and interoperability testing of eBusiness specifications and their implementation by software vendors and end-users.

To achieve this vision, the GITB project aims at:

Developing the required global Testing Framework, architecture and methodologies for state-of-the-art eBusiness Specifications and profiles covering all layers of the interoperability stack (organizational, semantic and technical interoperability.

Supporting the realization of GITB as a network of multiple Test Beds, thereby leveraging existing and future testing capabilities from different stakeholders (for example standards development organizations and industry consortia, Test Bed Providers, and accreditation / certification authorities);

Establishing under EU support and guidance, a setup of a comprehensive and global eBusiness interoperability Test Bed infrastructure in a global collaboration of European, North American and Asian partners.
