Objectives OARA Open Architectures Readiness Assessment Reducing Waste and Project Failure and Stimulating Economic Growth • Mandation of open standards and procurement of open source solutions to make ICT solutions fully interoperable to allow for reuse, sharing and scalability across organisational boundaries into local government chains. • Apply open standards to create a level playing field upon which SME’s can compete so as to put an end to the oligopoly of large suppliers that monopolise ICT provision.

Creating Common ICT Infrastructure • Enable the delivery of an open platform based on open standards that helps to avoid lengthy vendor lock-in, allowing the transfer of services or suppliers without excessive transition costs, loss of data or significant functionality. • Enable the citizen to access government documents with the document format reader of their choice through the application of compulsory open standards.

  10. 10. Objectives Using ICT to Enable and Deliver Change • A common ICT platform which provides the opportunity for a diverse range of providers to generate innovative solutions. Strengthening Governance • A governance structure that scrutinises, measures and enforces compliance with mandated standards and actions. OARA Open Architectures Readiness Assessment
  11. 11. Chapter & Verse OARA Open Architectures Readiness Assessment 15. Departments will reuse and share ICT solutions and contracts, rather than purchasing new or bespoke solutions. The mandation of specific open standards will make ICT solutions fully interoperable to allow for reuse, sharing and scalability across organisational boundaries into local delivery chains. Government will not commission new solutions where something similar already exists. 16. Where appropriate, government will procure open source solutions. When used in conjunction with compulsory open standards, open source presents significant opportunities for the design and delivery of interoperable solutions. 36. The Government will create a common and secure ICT infrastructure based on a suite of agreed, open standards which will be published and updated. The use of common standards can make ICT solutions fully interoperable to allow for reuse, sharing and scalability across organisational boundaries into local delivery chains. The adoption of compulsory open standards will help government to avoid lengthy vendor lock-in, allowing the transfer of services or suppliers without excessive transition costs, loss of data or significant functionality. 39. The Government believes that citizens should be able to read government documents with the standardised document format reader of their choice. The first wave of compulsory open standards will determine, through open consultation, the relevant open standard for all government documents.

  14. 14. Comply or Explain OARA Open Architectures Readiness Assessment Open Standards: Open Opportunities Chapter 2: Open Standards Mandation 6. For all new government IT contracts, specifications must comply with compulsory open standards, which have been mandated by the Cabinet Office. For legacy systems, migration to newly agreed or updated versions of compulsory open standards should be part of the technology refresh lifecycle.
  15. 15. Tangible Benefits OARA Open Architectures Readiness Assessment Adopting this policy enables: an open standards-based infrastructure for government IT which reduces the need for bespoke integration between non-standardised solutions sharing of information and data across and beyond government boundaries opportunities for third parties to build on government information and service delivery fairer competition that allows a diverse range of suppliers with different delivery models to deliver government IT solutions greater choice for the Government to reuse solutions and switch between standardised products and components reduced risk of lock-in to a particular vendor

  25. 25. Define Readiness Raring Ready Reserved Resistant OARA Open Architectures Readiness Assessment In this stage companies are strong proponents of open architechtures both internally and externally. They prefer open architechtures all other things being equal and they actively collaborate with the community to develop and share open architectures. In this stafe companies have a clearly articulated open architectures policy. They are comfortable evaluating, designing, transitioning and operating open architechtures. Open architechtures are subject to the same processes as proprietary software. In this stage companies realise they already have some open architechture, recognise the benefits and want it to proliferate. They are actively trying to understand how to remove the barriers to adoption and biases towards proprietary solutions. In this stage organisations resist the adoption of open architechtures. Occasionally that resistance is manifest as overt policies preventing their use but more often than not they simply lack the awareness, poilicy and processes neeed to facilitate the user of open architectures.
