  • 1. Interoperability Science Base
    The Way Forward
     
    Yannis Charalabidis
    Greek Interoperability Centre
  • 2. Interoperability “Facets”
  • 3. Enterprise Interoperability
    Organisational Interoperability
    Facets, Methods, Subjects and Application Domains For Interoperability: The 4-dimensional space
    Semantic Interoperability
    Technical Interoperability
    Application Domains: Administrations, businesses, specific industry sectors
    Methods: Formal description means, models, tools, standards
    Subjects: Organisations, systems, processes, data, rules, people

  • 6. Steps to make a new Science
    Concept Formulation
    Foundational Principles
    Development and Extension
    Internal Enhancement & Exploration
    External Enhancement & Exploration
    Popularisation
    Impact
    Industrial quality solutions. Communication and marketing towards broader communities. Substantiation of value.
    Wave 3
    Stabilisation of models and tools. Population of solution scenaria. Impact assessment and simulation. Training curriculum.
    Wave 2
    Ability to identify and describe
    problems and solutions. Research community establishment. Convergence on initial concepts.
    Wave 1
    Time
  • 7. Possible next steps (1)
    Key initiatives for the short/medium term –Development of Methods
    The taxonomy of interoperability (facets, subjects, methods, domains)
    Formal methods for categorising and analysingproblems and solutions (candidates: sets, vectors, categories, information flow, pattern theories)
    Metrics and Assessment models (candidates: Interoperability Maturity Matrix, eGOV Interoperability Assessment Frameworks)
    Decision Support & Simulation Tools (supporting problem-solution relation, utilising BPM/BPR tools, vertical approaches)
    Interoperability Testing Facilities ?
  • 8. Possible next steps
    Application and Documentation
    Solution paradigms (Springing out of projects, clearly related to problem definition)
    Interoperabilty infrastructures (sustainable project outcomes)
    Material (re)development, towards practitioners and universities
    Popularisation
    Internal and external Community building
    Tie-up with key research initiatives (cloud computing, internet of services, internet of things)
    Substantiation of value (work together with business associations and industry)
  • 9. ENSEMBLE
    Envisioning, Supporting and Promoting Future Internet Enterprise Systems Research through Scientific Collaboration
     
    Coordination & Support Action (CSA)
    Objective ICT-5-1.3
    Project Nr. 257548
    Duration: 24 months

  • 11. ENSEMBLE 1st year tasks
    Run an international call for contributions on Interoperability Scientific Base (state of the art & innovative scenaria), to get members in the Experts Committee, covering their fees for two years.
    Map the FINES research projects and prepare material on the cluster
    Monitor developments within and outside the FP7-ICT workprogramme
    Prepare the Science Base “Wave 1”, on foundational principles and concepts
    Work on the next version of the research roadmap for FINES cluster
