Program and Data Portability of Open Information Systems.

Principles and methods of portable applications and databases are considered based on the concept and standards of Open Systems. Quality metrics, results of effectiveness estimation, and methods for technological security provision in information systems design with portable programs and data are presented. The architecture and contents of the complex of international standards, which provide information systems life cycle and their creation by programs reuse and porting into another platforms, are described. Annotations of more than 140 international standards are provided that regulate design, development, and evolution of open system applications.

The book is recommended for developers, customers, and executives of complex information systems projects. It may be also used as textbook for higher school students, and as a reference book on methods and standards of Open Systems.
