Designing URI Sets for the UK Public Sector: A report from the Public Sector Information Domain of the CTO Council’s cross-Government Enterprise Architecture, Interim paper, Version 1.0, October 2009 (PDF)

On November 20th, I briefed the NCOIC/OMG Cloud Computing Team using http://networkcentricity.Wik.IS/@api/wik/files/46/=BrandNiemann11202009_(1).ppt (see especially slide 4 for how the NCOIC/OMG Cloud Computing Team can help the OMB/CIOC) and mentioned that the idea of using an Internet OS Desktop that can work like the iPhone App Store to reduce IT infrastructure costs and develop Data.gov apps to improve collaborative information sharing really resonated at the Federal CIO Council's AIC Meeting the day before where I was asked to give a demo. Brand Niemann
P.S. Wik.IS, and now called On Demand, is running completely in the cloud and has evolved to an Internet OS Desktop. See

At the international semantic web conference this week, we demonstrated the ModelDriven.org “EKB” capability to publish models and architectures as linked open data (LOD).  The business case for this is that architectures are more valuable when they are visible, shared and linked.  Publishing government architectural data supports the president’s open government initiative.  Publishing as LOD fits with the emerging thinking on the best way for government data to be published in an accessible, web based, linkable and query able form based on standards.

Some background of our thoughts on how to leverage LOD for government architectures can be found in our ISWC presentation, here: http://lib.modeldriven.org/MDLibrary/trunk/Pub/Presentations/ISWC_OpenGovernmentArchitectures.ppt

GIVE US YOUR MODELS!  If you will provide ModelDriven.org with your XMI or RDF based models with a license to publish the model data on the internet, we will publish them as part of our demonstration architectural data server at no charge.  This data could then also be published on data.gov or any other data registry.  Our EKB server is capable of publishing any XMI file (UML, XML-Schema, BPMN, SoaML, Etc) as LOD.  More information on the EKB project can be found here: http://portal.modeldriven.org/project/EKB

We will then organize these models for presentation as data (with web page access as well) on the demonstration server.

Note that there will be a “semantic web meetup” on this capability, Nov 12th: http://semweb.meetup.com/31/calendar/11748725/

Background

The work on the Federal Enterprise Architecture Data Reference Model, Data Architecture, Semantic Interoperability, Interagency Working Group on Digital Data, etc. are spread across multiple Web sites and Wiki pages. That information should be organized and integrated to illustrate Data Reference Model compliance and implementation. Gov 2.0 means "data, experience, and institutional knowledge accure at the bottom" to close the gap with managers (see slides 8). The future of Federal data computing infrastructure would seem to be "cloud computing". Gartner defines cloud computing as: "A style of computing where massively scalable IT-related capabilities are provided 'as a service', using Internet technologies, to multiple external customers."  See

Yesterday's Executive Order on Open Government  and YouTube Video.

Purpose

  • Bring together the work on "federal data" from multiple sources using a state-of-the-art Web 2.0 Wiki that supports self-describing URLs and data mashups.
  • Demonstrate Data Reference Model compliance and implementation best practices.
  • Demonstrate use of state-of-the-art infrastructure that illustrates the future use of "cloud computing".

Data.gov 2.0 White House officials plan to release Version 2.0 of the new government data portal, Data.gov, in the next couple of months, federal chief information officer Vivek Kundra said today. Web Site

This will likely feature new tagging capabilities and an expanded array of information tools.

See September 4th Memorandum from Federal CIO Vivek Kundra

Open Government Initiative Fully transparent in our work, participatory in soliciting your ideas and expertise, and collaborative in how we experiment together to use new tools and techniques for developing open government policy. Web Site

Step 1 – A brainstorming session to identify the major issues to be addressed in government-wide guidance;  May 21 – May 28: NAPA is hosting a collaborative site  to solicit ideas re issues to address.  This will run through May 28. NAPA Report on the First Phase of the Web-based Open Government Directive Development Process

Step 2 -  Public discussion -  June 3 – June 15: Once the key issues have been identified in the brainstorming session, there will be a blog created to open discussion on the specific issues.  This will be a two week process.

Step 3 -  Drafting a policy – begins June 19: Work will begin within the Administration on drafting guidance.  There is no deadline as to when this will be completed.  There are also no decisions regarding the form that the guidance will take once completed.  There will be an interagency review process.  Public input will be solicited at some point but the timing and process has not been determined.

The Recovery Dialogue on IT Solutions The Recovery Accountability and Transparency Board is reaching out to the public, state and local partners, potential recipients and solution providers to help fulfill the commitment to a transparent and accountable recovery.

NEW DEADLINE FOR SUBMITTING COMMENTS:  Tuesday, March 10, 2009
Federal CIO Vivek Kundra Outlines Priorities

As CIO, Kundra will take the place of Karen Evans, former e-government leader for the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and have an extremely broad set of responsibilities. He said he would scrutinize the $71 billion that the federal government spends on technology each year and make sure that it is managed effectively. He will also make sure those investments increase public access to government information, improve citizen participation, and help the public sector adopt technology at least as fast as the private sector, he said.

While leaning toward openness, Kundra will help coordinate efforts within the federal government to promote interoperability and information sharing, enhance security, guard privacy, leverage existing technology for maximum efficiency, and promote technology as a tool for solving pressing problems.

Web Site A Web site, Data.gov, will help accomplish that by providing as much data as possible to the public for the widest variety of uses and suggestions, Kundra said. In order to support initiatives like Data.gov, which encourage massive public participation and transparency, the government must and will go through a major transformation, he added.
Compilation of comments on possible changes to the Data Reference Model 2.0 (1) Why is the change is needed? (e.g., all the other reference models have a taxonomy) Version 6
(2) What are the characteristics of the change? (e.g., the taxonomy would allow a common classification of agency data assets across the government)
(3) How would these changes by made? (e.g., a taxonomy would be developed and approved within the Data Architecture Subcommittee during 2009 and submitted for inclusion in the next RMMP update)
Version 6

Work in progress.

Federal Enterprise Architecture Data Reference Model The Data Reference Model (DRM) (link not working) (see PDF) describes, at an aggregate level, the data and information supporting government program and business line operations. This model enables agencies to describe the types of interaction and exchanges occurring between the Federal government and citizens. Web 2.0 Wiki Continue to be the leading implementor.
Federal Data Reference Model 2.0 The Data Reference Model (DRM) is one of the five reference models of the Federal Enterprise Architecture (FEA). The DRM is a framework whose primary purpose is to enable information sharing and reuse across the federal government via the standard description and discovery of common data and the promotion of uniform data management practices.

Federal Data Architecture Subcommittee (DAS) The Data Architecture Subcommittee (DAS) of the Federal CIO Council’s Architecture and Infrastructure Committee (AIC) is comprised of representatives from federal government agencies with contributors from the government contractor community. The purpose of the subcommittee is to engage communities in advancing the management of federal data as a shareable national asset. One way to accomplish this is through facilitation of community collaboration and information sharing within and among communities of interest using open venues such as this one.  Web 2.0 Wiki Uses Core.gov 
Federal Semantic Interoperability Community of Practice (SICoP)  The Semantic Interoperability Community of Practice (SICoP) is established by a group of individuals for the purpose of achieving "semantic interoperability" and "semantic data integration" focused on the government sector.  See Federal SICoP White Paper 3 Web 2.0 Wiki See February 17, 2009, Conference
Interagency Working Group on Digitial Data     Formed under the auspices of the NSTC Committee for Science, the purpose is to develop and promote the implementation of a strategic plan for the Federal government to cultivate an open interoperable framework that will ensure reliable preservation and effective access to digital data for research, development, and education in science, technology, and engineering.

Appendix A.  Terminology and definitions of terms

Being developed by David Wojick: An issue tree is a knowledge representation format I developed many years ago and applied mosty to federal regulation design. See attached if you have time. An issue tree template represents abstract considerations rather than facts. I did the last one in 1982 so don't have an e-example. It is sort of a taxonomy of considerations.

and Brand Niemann: Keep it simple and create a table with Concept, Defintion (s), and Comments just to show different communities how they are using the same or different concepts and vocabulary in the same of different ways.

The Statistical Abstract of the United States The Statistical Abstract of the United States, published since 1878, is the standard summary of statistics on the social, political, and economic organization of the United States. It is designed to serve as a convenient volume for statistical reference and as a guide to other statistical publications and sources. Web 2.0 Wiki

This is what I am trying to do to support the IWGDD at http://federaldata.Wik.IS/Interagency_Working_Group_on_Digitial_Data using the Annual Statistical Abstract as a best practices example for data.gov at http://federaldata.Wik.IS/Statistical_Abstract_of_the_United_States%3a_2009. We discussed this at our last meeting how for example Table 1 can be copied and pasted back into Excel because it is real data in this Web 2.0 Wiki - see http://federaldata.Wik.IS/Statistical_Abstract_of_the_United_States:_2009/Section_1._Population/Tables
