I hope that IEEE will be promoting the importance of testing for interoperability and standards conformance in the secure electronic exchange of information (Plug-and-Play Framework). IEEE has the opportunity to mobilize its members and community to participate in the building and testing of open source interoperability solutions.

Some proposed objectives to consider to ensure and Foster Plug-and-Play Interoperability include:
- Support Automated Platform for Test Case Execution
- Document Best Practices for Audits and Work Flow Lifecycle of Testing
- Supports an Environment for Re-Use of Testing Tools/Test Cases
- Promotion Beyond "Happy Path Testing (peer-to-peer), ensure Negative Testing"
- Promote Industry Reporting Metrics on how well their products and services ensure interoperability and not vendor lock-in.
