It takes information management business practices from the ICT sector, such as Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) and the use of open standards and web technologies, and it applies them to ATM. The latest SWIM developments launched this month – the SWIM Reference and SWIM Registry digital platforms - will help ATM stakeholders further discover, understand, adopt and implement SWIM.
SWIM Reference is a one-stop-shop for all essential information about SWIM service implementations based on the EUROCONTROL SWIM Specifications. The SWIM Registry complements SWIM Reference. It consists of a European repository for consolidated information about SWIM services that have been implemented based on SWIM standards. Both platforms are supported by EUROCONTROL’s extensive SWIM expertise.
Collaboration has been at the heart of the SWIM idea from the very start. These new digital initiatives will help the growing SWIM community to accelerate the pace of SWIM service development and implementation. We also expect SWIM implementers to gain mutual benefit from these platforms by sharing their experience and progress achieved with their service developments.
