Standards Information Base (SIB)
The Standards Information Base or SIB is a database of facts and guidance about information systems standards. It details the components used to implement a technical reference model. To keep things simple, the SIB is used to list the technologies being used by the organization for the purpose of delivery.
This SIB specifically documents the ones used by the open source contributions of the organization. Though they are built and deployed from within the confines of the organization, cloud service tooling is heavily used to allow access to the greater community.
- GitHub is used for issue tracking and the source repository.
- Travis is used as a continuous integration and does the release process.
- SonarQube.com is used for quality management, but because the rules cannot be configured the results on SonarQube.com are ignored by the organization.
- Sonatype OSS is used as the repository as it provides a freely available Nexus server and provides detailed instructions for promoting up to Maven Central.
