A new METHODOLOGY standard

for

Integration and coordination

of

internal processes and e-business

in

focus areas
Focus Areas
  • The business objectives of EPR projects include:
    • Enhanced data capture quality
    • Quality in customer service and documentation of work done
    • Efficiency and quality in administrative work, with reuse of information
    • Effective cooperation and interoperation within an organization and between organizations
    • Data support that benefits all employees
    • Integration of legacy systems and overall presentation for the users
    • Electronic supervision of services and delivery

(see http://www.unik.no/profor/ for videos of project examples)

goals
Goals
  • The aim of this standard is to describe how application solutions can be organized in a unified way. The standard describes how:
    • information is presented to the users
    • tools and supporting materials are implemented
    • communication with legacy systems will take place
    • roles, processes and routines will be organized
    • general functions can be standardized and shared
the epr standardization work
The EPR standardization work

  • The realization of the EPR standard based on common international XML components:(www.w3c.orgwww.omg.org)
  • Choice Points for e-Business (Agent: Linking & Switching )
  • Web Services(National-UDDI, WSDL, SOAP)
  • ebXML(UN/CEFACT , EDI etc)

EPR

EPR is the road ahead to

”Open”, Including and Service organized collaboration in Real time

without introduction of new Technology

The EPR superstructure opens up quite new Methods in the way to integrate different legacy systems and construction of generic linked and switched

e-Business processes

epr superstructure organisation
EPR Superstructure organisation
  • Construction and Integration of Business processes and logic
  • By help of Folder structure metaphors
  • NB !
  • EPR methodology is setting the specification requirement in how to integrate Legacy Systems.
  • Done on EPR terms
  • and not on Legacy System terms
  • EPR is based on FREEWARE !

future work items
Future work items
  • Integration of BCM Choice Point technology to provide flow control and linking and switching for EPR.
  • Create BPSS of discrete workflow components – especially intra-enterprise exchanges.
  • Create BCM contract and CPA templates for EPR participant roles and agreements.
  • Look at applicability of CAM templates for formalizing information quality control and context rules.
open infrastructure platform independence
Open Infrastructure & Platform Independence

Thanks to WS, proprietary solutions belongs to the past !

  • Achieve USER controlled and non expensive data solutions
  • ( HW & SW independence is a must )
  • Interoperable solutions makesstandardization/digitalization even more important
  • INTEGRATORS becomes the users and e-Governments “right hand”
  • Network solutions will by help of WS open up and create new ways of user applications
  • ( As EPR’s “Folder” structure )
  • Minimize the amount of physical devices with multifunctional logical (SW =>WS) units
