  4. NIEM - Many things to many people • Cross-government information sharing • Interoperable and reusable • Cheaper better processes • Easier services for citizens • Safer society • Effective healthcare

  5. challenges • Smarter Processes • Empowering Citizens • Privacy • Quicker and Simpler • Open Collaborative Infrastructure • Less Bureaucratic

  6. Avoiding“God syndrome” • Belief in a single infallible solution • If we just do this it will make everything so much better • Life is complex, managing it is also • Common sense versus legal complexity

  7. Trial and error • Iterative technology improvements • Avoiding engineering complexity • Trial, error, refinement • Taking risks, thinking outside the box • Computers make humans smarter • Relax, it helps creativity flow

  8. Complexity explored Complex not necessarily Complicated Need to untangle complexity NIEM for a broader world A termite "cathedral" mound; example of emergence in nature – Wikipedia.org

  9. NIEM Collections • People treat dictionaries, vocabularies, ontologies, associations, linguistics as complex and complicated • Need to focus on business goals, breaking problems down, looking only one degrees or two degrees away from desired outcomes

  10. Dictionary based paradigm • Maturing Dictionary Technologies • Simple business information components • Leverages XML and semantics • Smart wizard agents manage content • Technology neutral representation model • Can be rendered into any target syntax

  11. What people need • Business lexicon and search tools • Cross-domain analysis tools • Compare exchange to dictionary tools • Quality control evaluation reporting • Content management by domain

  12. Smarter NIEM technology • Refactoring of NIEM core – basic reusable components – building blocks • Context as flexible option not rigidly hardwired by named components • XML is all about context by hierarchy - embrace it!

  13. HOW will THIS help? • Easier for people to do • Simple logical business terms • Cross-domain information components • Intuitive mapping mechanisms • Better semantic techniques • Leveraging smart agent technology • Pre-built public open source components

  14. Toward NIEM “MASH-UPS” • The world is not a giant UML model • If my software can recognize an information component – that is dynamic reuse • Avoid unnecessary attribute overhead • Leveraging Content Assembly Mechanisms
