This paper discusses why IBM is interested in accelerating the development of a single data exchange format. There is a need for a variety of tools that are loosely characterized into two groups: fact extraction and fact usage. These tools have to produce data to share or have to share data from a number of producers. The key problem is the lack of tool interoperability.
Data exchange formats, metrics, program comprehension, legacy recovery
