Abstract : In the domain of Systems, Network and Service Management, integration still represents one of the major issues. Standardization, undertaken more than a decade ago, has led to reduce drastically the number of approaches without reaching its nirvana, i.e. one approach accepted by all players in the field of management and deployed for all management purposes. Based on this fact many efforts have been deployed to build management gateways among the different approaches, providing a pragmatic and efficient way to reach integration. In this paper, we propose a set of mappings and an implementation of an integration agent allowing WBEM-based agents implementing a CIM information model to be managed by OSI-based management platforms and applications. Extending existing integration approaches, this paper provides three original items which are the support of the CIM meta model in an OSI agent, the mapping of relationships onto GRM specifications as well as a full Java-based implementation of the Q.adapter.
