Amartus contributes to the next breakthrough in LSO Sonata’s IIS

Apr 27, 2020 | News and articles

We’re not slowing down! Amartus team advanced in another LSO Sonata project as we delivered the next update to the Interface Implementation Specification (IIS) for Product Offering Qualification (POQ) project.

MEF, as an organization, aims for delivering and documenting industry standards that could be implemented throughout the whole market and would make cooperation between providers easier and less error-prone. As an active MEF member, we are involved in projects that strive to deliver APIs and documentation that is crucial for the standards to be implementable and understandable for the broader audience.

One of those projects is the  LSO Sonata Interface Implementation Specification for the Product Offering management. Sounds enigmatic? Let us explain. LSO Sonata aims for frictionless inter-provider trade automation. Product Offering Qualification (POQ), is one of pre-ordering business functions that allows verifying whether delivery of a specific product is technically feasible. The IIS (Interface Implementation Specification) consists of API definition and a document assisting the implementation of Product Offering Qualification (POQ) function defined at Sonata Interface Reference Point (IRP). And these technical details of POQ function are what Amartus and a number of MEF members have been working on recently. As POQ IIS editors, we are delighted to announce that the first tangible version of POQ IIS is ready and waiting for your feedback.

In a brief, the works on IIS in last quarter focused on:

  • Updating POQ API definition
  • Documenting POQ API description and data models
  • Providing sound examples of API usage in the most typical scenarios

Now, we ask all MEF members, to review the documentation and deliver their feedback. Call for Comments on this project is now open and will be accessible until May 15, 2020.

This is the first MEF Call for Comments (CFC) that is handled 100% on GitHub. The CFC is exposed as a MEF Github Pull Request here. Please note CFC is open for comments for MEF members only so if you do not have your GitHub account configured please contact Community Manager to assist you with that.
