  • I am going to use an Information Model to explain a new Information Model – the Data Reference Model 2.0:
    • Context: Why I was invited to speak.
    • Description: A “real world example” of why we need the new Government Information Model.
    • Sharing: What I want to share with you about the using the DRM in a pilot.
  • Owen Ambur, Co-Chair of the Federal XML Community of Practice (CoP), was asked to participate to “assure that XBRL meets all of the DRM and E-Gov Mandates.”
    • He is not here due to a death in the family.
  • I Chair the Semantic Interoperability CoP that uses more powerful forms of XML (RDF and OWL) and pilots them:
    • E.g. Digital Harbor’s “Investigative Case Management for Anti-Money Laundering” at the our upcoming 4th Semantic Interoperability for E-Government Conference, February 9-10th.
  • I lead the DRM 2.0 Implementation Through Iteration and Testing Team.
    • Mills Davis, SICoP White Paper 2 Lead (who is here today) and I are in discussions with Allyson Ugartes and the FDIC (Jon Wisnieski) about a DRM 2.0 Pilot with XBRL!
    • See my recent interview with Government Computer News:
      • http://appserv.gcn.com/forum/qna_forum/37914-2.html
  • Does someone have four quarters for a U.S. dollar so I can feed my parking meter?
    • Hopefully a semantically clear data request message.
  • Thank you, and these quarters are like your XBRL documents – they don’t really do anything unless they are reused in an information management system.
  • I put the quarters (interoperable data) in the parking meter and it sends a message to the dial to display 60 minutes more time.
  • The Meter Person sees my meter and hopefully sends a message to their brain, ‘can’t write a parking ticket here, yet, but I will back in 65 minutes and if that same car is here I will write a ticket!’.
description continued
  • And if I get a parking ticket, that paper document is not very interoperable data – I have to re-key the ticket number and my credit card number into a Web site and pay the ticket online or generate even more paperwork by going to traffic court.
  • But all of this is changing: There will be one meter per block where you register your parking space and credit card numbers, and if the meter person sees a violation, then your credit card will be debited for the fine as well!
  • SO THE QUESTION IS: Can I do everything I and others need to do with these XBRL documents going forward (can you spell agility)?
  • Domain –specific XML Vocabularies like XBRL are part of Data Architecture which in turn is part of Enterprise Architecture which is turn is usually done with Service Oriented Architecture so I suggest you think about:
    • XBRL Ontologies (taxonomies with stronger semantics and agility) and Services; and
    • A DRM 2.0 Pilot which Mills Davis, et al. are scoping out as we speak.
sharing continued
  • DRM 2.0 Essentials:
    • Three Types of Data Integrated:
      • Unstructured, Semi-structured, and Structured
    • Structured and Searchable by Taxonomy Nodes:
      • View Data Assets Categorized by Taxonomy (Topics)
    • Data Access and Exchange Web Services in Interoperable Formats:
      • View Part or All of Data Tables (e.g. screen scrape in XML to Excel) and Retrieve XML File with Metadata Embedded.
  • This Data Architecture Provides the Three S’s: Structure, Searchability, and Semantics.
  • XBRL Pilot Considerations Excerpts:
    • Scope:
      • Select a clear business need and provide a compelling user experience (e.g. dashboard).
    • Performance:
      • Demonstrate fast time-to-solution XBRL/DRM based approach within 30 days at low risk.
    • Conditions:
      • Appropriate agreement between all parties to the pilot ensuring cooperation and commitment of resources.
    • Participants:
      • Treasury, FDIC, XBRL-US, SICoP, System Integrator, Composite Application Platform Provider, etc.
    • Next Steps:
      • Develop a preliminary statement of work.
