An important part of the IMS specification development process is the creation of the conformance and certification process for that specification. A specification must have several certified products before Public Final Release. Each IMS specification has its own set of conformance testing tools that IMS members must use to demonstrate compliance and therefore gain certification. IMS invests a significant amount of development and support effort on providing these test systems and many IMS members use them an essential part of their own in-house testing. Derek Haskins is responsible for the development and support of many of the IMS certification systems, and he will provide an overview and short demonstration of how to use them.

During this session attendees will learn how to:

  • Get ready for successfully completing certification
  • Use the 'Conformance & Certification' document created for each IMS specification
  • Use the IMS certification tools to get a product IMS certified
  • Use the IMS Product Directory to identify products that have IMS certification
