Self-Sovereign Identity solutions are interoperable
Self-Sovereign Identity solutions are interoperable because they are based on open standards.
Interoperability is a critical succesfactor for adoption. Therefor, proper SSI solutions adhere to open standards. Specifically to the W3C standards being drawn up by W3C working groups and the Decentralized Identity Foundation (DIF), such as:

Sphereon provides several Open Source components on our Github, such as:
