Open Systems: What’s Old Is New Again
Portland Marriott (Downtown)

Join us for a special (Free) May Rose City SPIN in collaboration with the SATURN Software Architecture Conference!

Open Systems: What’s Old Is New Again

Presented by Patricia Oberndorf, Carnegie Mellon Software Engineering Institute

Dates/Times: Monday, May 5th, 2014: Networking and Talk: 7:00-9:00 PM

Location: Portland Marriott Downtown Waterfront, 1401 SW Naito Parkway


Organization executives and managers continue to be challenged to achieve greater acquisition efficiency and cost savings, while understanding a myriad of issues and promoting smart system decision making. The use of an open systems approach is coming back to help with today’s realities and tomorrow’s possibilities. To adapt to changing circumstances, executives and managers need practical definitions, the basics of an open systems approach, and an understanding of the issues, as well as things to look for in programs as they transition to an open systems approach.

This presentation will discuss the definitions, approach, and basics of open systems. It will relate the concepts to current technology trends and the implications of disruptive technologies and provide attendees with high-level understanding and appreciation of what it means to transition to an open systems approach for system acquisition.


Patricia Oberndorf is a Principal Engineer in the Client Technical Solutions Division, Software Solutions Directorate at the Software Engineering Institute (SEI). She has been at the Institute for over 20 years. During her career, Tricia has led work in interoperability and systems of systems; software acquisition; service-oriented architectures; software assurance; and remaking traditional risk management into success management.
