  • Leverage established Best Practices:Leveraged to IC Community adopted implementationMapped back to FEA constructsAdheres to OMB requirement for TemplatesProvides Stakeholders clear and concise examples of practical implementationsGives Private Sector understanding of Government direction
  • Commonly used message/information exchanges
  • Exchange Patterns: Exchange patterns are the basic patterns for how data is exchanged between information sharing providers, consumers, and/or information brokers. Exchange patterns are the mechanism to standardize certain types of exchanges that incorporate technical standards and technical services. The purpose of exchange patterns is to ‘build’ interoperability into the pattern itself. Technical Standards: ISE technical standards are specific technical methodologies and practices to design and implement information sharing capabilities into ISE systems. They are an intrinsic element of both functional standards and technical services. These standards are very technical in nature, and are often developed as a result of identified needs, are foundational in nature, address specific problems, are not very mission focused, and can be easily applied to different communities of interest. Technical standards are developed by the Standards Development Organizations, working with the stakeholders and industry organizations, and are usually published as a ‘normative standard specification’ that is used to define and measure conformance.Technical Services:ISE technical services constitute detailed technical descriptions, data, and metadata on focused areas that enable the efficient, secure and trusted application of the ISE business processes and information flows to share information. These services address specific technical needs or problems, are reference implementations of one or more technical standards, and provide the technical functionality required to implement a business architecture.Functional Standards:ISE functional standards constitute detailed mission descriptions, data, and metadata on focused areas that use ISE business processes and information flows to share information. These standards address a specific mission need or problem, are often collaborative in nature, apply mission context to the technical standards, and once adopted by the community of interest, significantly enable requirements for interoperability across agencies and jurisdictions. These standards may be government-unique or a combination of other functional standards as appropriate.Operational Capabilities:Operational Capabilities are the reference implementations of functional and technical standards and services coupled with the appropriate policy, process, training, outreach, and other infrastructure components. A mission partner executes a combination of standards within their mission technology and application environment that enables interoperability and information sharing. Users can work more effectively when they employ the resulting mission capability.The Use Case methodology and example that will be developed will provide an example of applying these concepts to the Maritime Domain Awareness Use Case. A Use Case is developed at varying levels of detail to help visualize and describe specific activities or information flows in order to get agreement on an information flow from beginning to end. The use case should be developed from an operational perspective and should be technology neutral unless the use of specific technology is dictated.
  • Profiles package together several artifacts to form a consolidated set of information that is needed to construct and re-use a capabilityThe artifacts include standards, technical configuration guidance, specifications, etc.The profiles have three distinct views for different stakeholders; strategic planners, engineers, and developers.The set of profile content is what supports the policy that directs to community to operate a capability according to a common or standards based implementation.Re-use comes form the aggregation of the essential information together to construct and realize the capabilityThe profile therefore is the binding package or recipe for the capability.

    1. 1. ISE Information Interoperability (I2F) Framework Understanding “Project Interoperability” Tools Agile Sourcing Working Group Briefing April 23, 2014
    2. 2. Getting on the Same Page (Common Terminology) 2 What is Information Interoperability? The ability to transfer and use information in a uniform and efficient manner across multiple organizations and information technology systems Australian Information Interoperability Framework (2006) In other words… It’s the ability of two or more systems or components to exchange information and to use the information that has been exchanged
    3. 3. What is the I2F? A guidance document for Exec, PM’s, SME and Architects to deliver Interoperable services using common practices, terms and models Supports “IT service providers” in efficiently achieving information and system interoperability Aligns to National Strategies ( Secure, Measureable, Extendable and Implementable Services) • Interoperability Objectives: • Increase information sharing • Reduce total cost of operations • Promote shared services • Treat information as a National Asset 3
    4. 4. I2F Vision & Approach 4 Operational Agnostic View: I2F guides the implementation of ISE information sharing capabilities across heterogeneous boundaries Common Practices: It provides mechanisms that can support FSLTT partner agencies (e.g., fusion centers) to share data based on normative terms, common standards, and practices Integrated Landscape: The I2F will accomplish the above objectives primarily through ISE constituent use of ISE Architecture Framework Grid ISE Standards and Specifications Framework ISE Common Profile Template

    6. 6. I2F Integrated Landscape (I2FIL) 6 I2F provides an extensible, measurable, and implementable approach that is built for the ISE community as a management practice, to enable assured interoperability
    7. 7. Inside I2F Components 7 Mission Space Operational Capabilities: references “Current State” Implementations of functional and technical services coupled with the appropriate policy, process, training, outreach, and other infrastructure components Common Practice and Terms •Technical Standards: specific to the development and implementation of information sharing capabilities into ISE systems •Technical Capabilities: detailed technical descriptions such as data and metadata that enable the efficient, secure, and trusted application of the ISE business processes and information flows to share information •Exchange Patterns: repeatable sets of tasks that help accomplish a commonly occurring need for exchange of data or information between two or more partners Reuse and Shared Capability •Exchange Specifications: is the instantiation of an exchange pattern, and once implemented correctly enables interoperability
    8. 8. Choreography and Coordination What Are Exchange Patterns? 8 Query Response Workflow Alerts, Broadcast and Notifications A B CD A These commonly used message/information exchanges support mission needs…think RFI, AWN…SAR, or complex systems like Electronic Court Filing systems.
    9. 9. Alignment to Management Plan & Priority Objectives 9 Extensible Capability: I2F enables multiple priority objectives, implementation guidance and future needs i.e., IDAM, Data Agg, Shared Services, RFI, NIEM-UML, Cyber Initiatives, SBA, NJ-ISE, Cloud, Mobile etc… Measureable Criteria: I2F supports quantitative performance objectives aligned to PRM and GAO maturity model through identification of requirements Implementable Approach: I2F supports the delivery of capability through common architecture process, repeatable exchange patterns and harmonized standards and specifications

    13. 13. I2F Use – Building Interoperability into Mission-Based Reference Architecture(s) 13 Review Enterprise Architecture Common Approach, and identify mission- and business- specific enterprise reference architecture domain needs 1. Review the minimum requirements for interoperability 2. Coordinate interoperability artifact descriptions 3. Identify artifacts relevant to interoperability and information sharing 4. Ensure identified applicable architecture artifact is included in your reference, segment, and solution architecture methodology 5. Update Reference Architecture
    14. 14. I2F Use – Building Interoperability into Mission-Based Reference Architecture(s) 14 Use the I2F Architecture Framework Alignment Grid and Reference Architecture template to: 1. Review FEAF CA, and identify mission- and business-specific enterprise reference architecture domain needs 2. Review the minimum requirements for interoperability 3. Coordinate interoperability artifact descriptions 4. Identify artifacts relevant to interoperability and information sharing 5. Ensure identified applicable architecture artifact is included in your reference, segment, and solution architecture methodology 6. Update Reference Architecture
    15. 15. I2F Use – Building Interoperability into Mission-Based Reference Architecture(s) 15 1. Review the minimum requirements for interoperability Ex., Data Domain - builds on the operational context and defines why information needs to be exchanged. Technical standards are enablers that provide the vocabularies for sharing to assure that the semantic meaning and the context of the data is not lost during transition and transformation. Technical capabilities provide the architectural context within which the exchange is executed. All of these components focus on the interoperability framework. The actual data constructs define the data exchange content model and includes:  Mechanism for identifying and categorizing candidate assets for sharing  Framework for capturing data elements and the relationship between them (semantics)  How the data is structured, what standards are used, and how data/information can be exchanged so users are able to both have access to and use the data/information  Technical standards to design and implement information sharing capabilities into ISE systems  Approach for documenting exchange patterns  Data/information flow to include the tagging of the data, discovery, and retrieval  Principles, roles, and responsibilities for data management and stewardship
