about the core service
about the « core service »
  • It’s positive
    • We have a core service
    • Wecover the major part of the requirements
    • We have users and the service iswellreceived
  • But
    • A fine tuning has to bedonenow, withusers (e.g. list of products, productsdefinition, portal functions)
    • Waveproducts are missing, and reasons are external
a pan european system organization to produce marine information
A pan-European system organization to produce marine information

  • One nominal system per area to produce the expected information
  • Notions of back-up systems

about the integrated capacity
about the « integratedcapacity »
  • It’s positive
    • It isreally an « integrated system of systems »
    • Weobserved a very good behaviour in operations
    • We have alreadyreduced a number of redundancies
    • Roles are welldefined
  • But
    • Some components are not fullyintegrated
    • This isstill a heavy management cost for the teams
    • ImposingEuropean (MyOcean) specifications on National systemsis not straighforward

about the user driven
about the « user driven »
  • It’s positive
    • We have now a betteridea of ourusers
    • We have a first experience
    • We have an organization
    • We have something to offer, to start the dialogue
  • But
    • We’re not yetreally « user driven » : thisis one of the challenges of MyOcean2

about the methodology
about the « methodology »
  • It’s positive
    • Wewentthroughthis mini-revolution
    • Weshare a methodologyto manage our pan-European service organization for operationaloceanography
  • But
    • The costishigh for the teams, and the workis not equallyshared
    • Weneed to simplify and ensurewewillworkwithit for good reasons for a long time

about the pan european
about the « pan-European »
  • It’s positive
    • We are able to worktogether
    • We are able to reachour objectives together
    • We are fairlywellorganized
  • But
    • We must improveagain the overall communication, consultation, participation, decision
    • We must foster the links withEuroGOOS and stakeholders, and progress in our long term structuration

The MyOcean concept wasvalid, and we have implementeditsuccessfully.

The MyOcean concept wasreallychallengingand we have not reached the final step.

Improvementswillbe made in MyOcean2.
