Abstract: An underlying assumption of any network is that various components and processes will work together to produce desired results (e.g., data transmission, data interchange, reliability of services, etc.). The term interoperability has been used to characterize this working together, especially, the workings of lower level data communication components. Usage of the term has evolved to refer more generally to the extent to which different types of computers, networks, operating systems, and applications work together effectively to exchange information in a useful and meaningful manner. Miller (2000) suggests a perspective That is even more encompassing: he says that to be interoperable means "one should actively be engaged in the ongoing process of ensuring that the systems, procedures and culture of an organisation are managed in such a way as to maximize opportunities for exchange and re-use of information, whether internally or externally."
