Semantic Community
  • Our Mantra is: Data Science Precedes the Use of SOA, Cloud, and Semantic Technologies! We use data science to help marketing and business development efforts.
  • Our Mission is like Googles: Organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful.
  • Our Method is like Be Informed 4: Architectural Diagrams and Questions and Answers are not enough, you need Dynamic Case Management!
  • Our Sound Byte: It is not just where you put your data (cloud), but how you put it there!
  • Our Work: Semantically enhancing your data and writing data science stories about it.

Invitation
  • Topics should be within Mr. Okon’s scope of the DoD CIO and Federal CIOCouncil.
  • Specific topics could include:
    • Next Generation of Information Sharing and Exchange
    • Next Generation of Enterprise Architecture (exploiting the accomplishments IDEAS and DoDAF and UPDM)
    • Evolution or Development at IT Standards Development Organizations (OMG, ISO, etc.)
questions
Questions
  • How Does the Following Slide Relate to:
    • DoD Architecture Framework (DoDAF) and OMG UPDM (Unified Profile for DoDAF and MoDAF)?
    • The spatial-temporal ontology in IDEAS or DoDAF?
    • DARS (DoD Architecture Registry System)?
    • “Upgrade” with semantic web?
    • BEA as a subset of DoD Architectures?

  • Slide 3 (OMG): How semantic technologies could add value by “analytic transformation” of existing DoD registries named below:
    • Please address how such an Analytic Transformation could draw on the DISR, GIG Technical Profiles, DARS, DITPR, etc.
      • Sound Byte: “Spotfire makes registries analytic”
  • Slide 8 (Be Informed): Above the line architecture complements multiple existing approaches to enterprise architecture (e.g. DoDAF, TOGAF, Zachman, etc.). Also, it integrates with existing change management software practices:
    • Please address DoDAF and its data model / taxonomy
      • Sound Byte: “Be Informed is the architectures of architectures”
my reply
My Reply
  • I have addressed how semantic enhancements of DoD Architectures and Registries add value in past presentations to Walt Okon and have moved on now to semantic service apps that Analytic Transformation Tools like Spotfire and Be Informed can build that use linked data and data science, go in libraries where they can be readily used and reused, and are federated and managed by Dynamic Case Management.
my post script
My Post Script
  • I found that DoD Architectures and Registries have content that limits the value of semantic enhancements and that apps using the actual data and Analytic Tools are more valuable. See for example:

the semantic community process for building dod in the cloud
The Semantic Community Process for Building DoD in the Cloud
  • Repurpose Information and Data from DoD Architectures and Registries.
    • Unstructured information gets well-defined URLs
      • E.g. Vocabulary
    • Unstructured information becomes a predicate database for semantic network analysis
      • E.g. Large number of documents
    • Structured data gets reusable structure
      • E.g. Tables in Web pages
    • Links are made meaningful
      • E.g. “Word Wheel” of best choices for links
    • Content container supports standards
      • E.g. Web-oriented architecture, Sitemap and Schema Protocols, etc.
    • Content is federated with crowd sourcing
      • E.g. Wiki-like environment
    • Work environment is self-service on mobile devices
      • E.g. iPhone – iTunes App Store

I finished the Interactive Hierarchical Activity Model for you!

This is now ready for Dynamic Case

Management with Be Informed where

DoDAF and its data model / taxonomy

would become a knowledge model on

top of a knowledge base!

Build DoD in the Cloud:Be Informed Dynamic Case Management
  • A recent paper describes the formalism and rationale that Be Informed applies to business process modeling. It explains how and why goal-oriented modeling differs from more conventional business process modeling which is procedural. In the near-term, there is applicability for many government agencies, especially for those exploring semantic approaches.
  • For example, Dennis Wisnoskiadvocates semantic web (RDF & OWL) standards for modeling data integration, and a dialect of BPMN for modeling processes. The metaphor for processes is an electronic circuit specification that uses standard building blocks. "We all know what those primitives mean." Previous, costly attempts at business process modeling were failures in part because there was no standard at the primitive level.
  • However, as this paper makes clear, just having unambiguous primitives is only part of what is needed to specify and manage complex and dynamic business processes. Modeling flow in swim lanes is less agile than modeling goals, activities, and pre and post conditions.
