Australian initiatives for standardising statistical processes and metadata

slide2
Challenges facing NSIs

Riding the big data wave

New competitors & changing expectations

Increasing cost & difficulty of acquiring data

Competition for skilled resources

Reducing

budget

Rapid changes in the environment

slide3
Challenges facing ABS
  • Reduce the cost and time of doing business
  • Grow the business through new statistical products and services
  • Deliver the first large scale digital Census (2016) on time, to budget and quality
  • while delivering Business As Usual.
slide4
How will we get there?
  • Through large scale Innovation across the whole ABS
  • We will:
    • radically transform the way we acquire, collate, use, reuse and disseminate statistical information
  • By:
    • industrialising, modernising and reengineering our business processes
    • reengineering our statistical infrastructure and the way we manage information
    • develop capability needed to meet future needs
    • Collaborating with other international NSIs
what is inspire
What is InSPIRe?
  • Infrastructure for Statistical Process and Information Management Re-engineering
  • Building core infrastructure in the ABS for:
    • Business Process management
    • Information management
  • SWM
    • Statistical Workflow Management System
  • MRR
    • Metadata Registry and Repository
slide7
SWM
  • The Statistical Workflow Management System
  • An environment that will be used to develop and manage common business processes
    • These processes can drive and/or be used by tools and applications.
slide8
MRR
  • The Metadata Registry and Repository consists of two parts:
    • Repository
      • The centralised ‘bucket’ to store standards based metadata.
    • Registry
      • The catalogue that lets you find out what is in the repository.
slide9
MRR
  • Registers and stores a wide range of information, including:
    • Metadata (i.e. Classifications, Variables, etc)
    • Data – registered in MRR, stored in EDW
    • Process Definitions and Paradata – information to run a process
    • Process Metrics – information about a process that was run.
slide10
MRR
  • The MRR
    • Enforces registration of the information, ensuring consistent documentation
    • Reads information in a range of standard supported metadata formats
      • (initially DDI and SDMX)
    • Re-issues metadata in whatever standard format is required by a given process.
      • Regardless of the format in which the metadata was originally created in.
    • This information is stored for use and later re-use by the metadata driven processes in SWM
    • Enables the searching and discovery of metadata for re-use.
interfaces
Interfaces
  • Processes and Systems will interact with the MRR through a web service interface that supports a controlled set of standards.
    • Currently limited to DDI 3.1 and SDMX 2.1

benefits of inspire
Benefits of InSPIRe
  • Basis for greater automation and reuse of processes and metadata
    • Faster to market
        • For individual collections
        • For building new collections
    • Cheaper to market (long term)
        • For individual collections
        • For building new collections
progress so far
Progress so far…
  • Proof of Concept Project (2010/2011)
    • A group of simple use cases to prove the idea of the MRR and SWMs.
  • Demonstrating:
    • Benefits
    • Potential functionality
    • What is technically achievable
  • Building capability
pathfinders
Pathfinders
  • Pathfinder Integration (July 2012)
    • Expanded on PoC
    • ‘Pathfinder’ projects to produce further use cases for the MRR and SWMs.
      • Not end-to-end processes, but isolated ‘snap shot’ projects to demonstrate the capabilities of InSPIRe.
  • Four pathfinders chosen
    • Including web data capture (e-forms) and REEM (Remote Execution Environment for Microdata)
reem and web data capture pathfinders
REEM and Web Data Capture Pathfinders
  • Proved integration with real ABS systems
  • Demonstrated the benefits of integration with InSPIRe, namely:
    • Re-use of processes (in SWM)
    • Standards based metadata (DDI in MRR) driving business tools
    • Automating business processes (in SWM)
early adopter projects
Early Adopter Projects
  • Projects which are positioning to integrate with InSPIRe within the next 12 months.
    • Includes projects focusing on administrative data, e-forms and the 2016 Census.
  • Suitable candidates to prove the operation InSPIRe.
    • implementing processes in different phases of the GSBPM.
what we have achieved so far
What we have achieved so far
  • MRR
    • Design and review, mappers, shredders, database, automated generation of metadata types, basic search, registry model
  • SWM
    • Environment setup, test cases with projects
  • Capability Development
    • Best practice guidelines for implementing DDI, metadata content guidelines, InSPIRe integration information packs
what we still have to do
What we still have to do
  • MRR
    • Production version
  • SWM
    • Further process definition, integration with other projects
  • Metadata Authoring Environment
    • A mechanism for:
      • Taking existing metadata content and registering it in the MRR
      • Creating new metadata content via a content creation tool and registering it in the MRR
