Re: systems integrating north, south, east, and west
I'm working on a document where the writer says that an application
integrates north with operational support systems and south with network
elements, and east-west 'with other "best-of-breed" management solutions'.
This sounds like marketing-speak, written by someone accustomed to standing in front of a screen and pointing at a PowerPoint slide.
If it's a caption for a diagram that depicts the modules in the relationship you've described, I'd say it's acceptable if unimaginative. If there is not an appropriate graphic adjacent to the sentence, I'd swap out compass directions for up, down, and laterally. People are sufficiently accustomed to thinking of system relationships in terms of vertically arranged layers that I think that would be unobjectionable.
