Past, Present, and Future

  • Mind Map:

    • 1. Human Understanding:

      • E.g., Chief Architect Forum EA Glossary, the FEA PMO Web Site re-design, Mapping Your Investments to the FEA, etc.

    • Computer Implementation of Human Understanding:

      • E.g., FEA Reference Model Ontology, DRM XML Schema, SiberLogic Pilot for the Records Management Profile, etc.

    • Computer Execution of Previous in Actual Systems:

      • E.g., the reference model is an XML schema which is the service component bus in the IT system (Andreas Tolk), SIA Pilots (Digital Harbor and Broadstokes Group), Federal Executive Branch Continuity of Communications (Roy Roebuck), etc.


Past present and future11 l.jpg

Past, Present, and Future

  • XML 2005 Conference, Tuesday, November 15, 9 AM.

  • Opening Keynote: From Atoms to OWLs the new ecology of the Semantic Web.

  • Presenter: Jim Hendler, Professor, University of Maryland, USA.

    • Over the past couple of years, Semantic Web deployment has really started rolling. Successes have included adoption of RDF by major corporations and the development of new ontology-based technologies of use for many enterprise and web applications. Despite this, controversy still seems to abound with respect to both the relationship of the Semantic Web to XML, and the use of these technologies. This talk will explain what the Semantic Web is all about and, perhaps more importantly, attempt to dispel two pervasive myths -- that XML and the Semantic Web are incompatible, and that XML is able to do all that the Semantic Web promises without reinventing the semantic extensions inherent in RDF and OWL.

Past, Present, and Future

  • SICoP Support for the Data Reference Model:

    • Implementing the Semantic Web Part 1. Semantic Technology Profile for the Data Reference Model:

      • Use Case 1 – Geospatial Data

      • Use Case 2 – U.S. EPA

      • Use Case 3 – FEA

      • Use Cases XX – See next slide for all the possibilities.

  • SICoP Paradigm for the Data Reference Model:

    • A model (ontology) for the document, the reference model itself, and for applications.

  • SICoP Leadership of the new DRM Implementation Through Iteration and Testing Team (ITIT) (e.g. today’s Implementation Profile presentations).

Past, Present, and Future

  • Example 1 - Web Services for E-Government:

    • 1. Organizational-Simple:

      • Led CIO Council award winning VoiceXML Web Service for EPA Emergency Response pilot that has subsequently been commercialized and implemented as Infrastructure (see below).

    • 2. Technical-Composite:

      • Lead the CIO Council’s E-Forms for E-Gov Pilot that saw 13 E-forms vendors each build an XML Web Service using a common XML Schema for E-Grants to increase their collective technical interoperability with one another.

    • 3. Semantic-Infrastructure:

      • Our recent Semantic Web for Military Applications Conference featured 40 vendors implementing RDF/OWL including the “Putting Context to Work: Semantic Keys to Improve Rapid First Response” that used an event ontology to achieve semantic interoperability across five vendors.


Past present and future18 l.jpg

Past, Present, and Future

Modeling the FEA Reference Model Documents

  • Federal Enterprise Reference Model Ontology (FEA RMO):

    • This is a composite application with multiple ontologies created from manually extracting the concepts from the FEA PRM, BRM, SRM, and TRM documents into Protégé.

    • This has been recommended to OMB/AIC as the way to maintain and update the Reference Models in the future to insure semantic consistency across all the Reference Models (and Profiles).
