The Interoperability Bridges and Labs Center is dedicated to
technical collaborative work between Microsoft, customers, partners
and open sources communities to improve interoperability between
Microsoft and non-Microsoft technologies.
The Center is run by Microsoft Open Technologies, Inc. working
with many teams at Microsoft, with customers input and with the
community at large to build technical bridges, labs and solutions
to improve interoperability in mixed IT environments.
In this site, you will find a live directory of these technical
and freely downloadable interoperability Bridges with related
content such as demos, technical articles, helpful best practices
from the projects leads and sharing technical guidance. You will
also find Labs, which contain technical guidance explaining how to
best achieve interoperability in specific product scenarios.
The vast majority of the projects are run as Open Source
projects with third party and community members and released under
a broad BSD license, or other licenses such as MS-PL or Apache, so
that our customers, partners and the community can use them in many
open and broad reaching scenarios.
We welcome feedback and discussions on the Microsoft Open
Technologies, Inc. blog at Interoperability @
