An increasing number of applications require the integration of heterogeneous hardware and software components. Due to the high levels of complexity that such integrations demand, several solution have been proposed in the state of art of software engineering. This paper introduces the IMI2S framework: a distributed computing software platform aimed to cope with such levels of complexity by simplifying the functional decomposition of the problems through the implementation of highly decoupled, efficient and portable software. We will present the design issues addressed in the development of the IMI2S framework. We will show through two case studies its flexibility and its general efficacy.
