System designers and integrators in many industries are tasked with creating robust, widely available and secure communications infrastructures. These infrastructures interconnect systems (including systems of systems) nationwide and globally with high fidelity and high performance. To meet these challenging requirements, distributed real-time systems need a well-designed and efficient
architecture.This Webinar reviews the challenges associated with integrating large-scale systems and shows how the Data Distribution Service (DDS) standard from the Object Management Group (OMG)
addresses use cases common to defence, financial services and power systems. It includes a
discussion of how DDS can meet systems’ current and future requirements in terms of performance,
scalability, availability and interoperability. This results in dramatically lower integration costs, not just for initial integration but also for future upgrades and expansions.

object-oriented and component-oriented software design with a special interest in the integration of
distributed systems. Rick is also heavily involved at the Object Management Group (OMG) in the creation of specifications there for the development, integration, and management of real-time
distributed applications. He was involved in the Revision Task Force for the DDS specification and co-authored the Robotic Technology Component specification. More recently, he co-authored the forthcoming Extensible and Dynamic Topic Types specification. Rick received his BS in Computer Science with distinction from Stanford University.
