An Analysis of the OSI Systems Management Architecture from an ODP Perspective
This paper analyses the OSI Systems Management Architecture (SMA) in terms of the RM-ODP concepts and architecture. It explains why ISO and ITU are considering new modelling techniques for implementing distributed systems management. In the information viewpoint, these new techniques might be inspired from GDMO. The paper also examines the use of automatic translation tools (GDMO to CORBA IDL translators) to integrate existing management agents within the future Open Distributed Management Architecture (ODMA).
