  1. 1. September 2003 Mark Nelson [email_address] www.ICHnet.org/sail.htm 703 768 0400 A “Collaboratory” where Solutions Architectures are derived from industry best practices and lessons learned An emerging public/private partnership where PMs can get their programs to green in a conflict-free environment and risks of failure are mitigated This document is confidential and is intended solely for the use and information of the client to whom it is addressed. DHS & e-Gov Solutions
  2. 2. Recommended Actions <ul><li>Review SAIL value proposition with Govt IT management team </li></ul><ul><li>Review challenges, inspect Approach, listed to agency advocates </li></ul><ul><li>Review past performance work leading to this initiative (OSD HA, DARPA, Discovery) </li></ul><ul><li>Conduct Analysis of Alternatives; how does this compare with current approaches. </li></ul><ul><li>Identify current problem area for pilot. Solicit industry/agency participation </li></ul><ul><li>Initiate to low cost, low risk prototype with like minded agencies/industry partners </li></ul>
  3. 3. Table Of Contents <ul><li>The Need, Concept and Vision </li></ul><ul><li>Value Chain Participants </li></ul><ul><li>Outcomes </li></ul><ul><li>SAIL Concept of Operations </li></ul><ul><li>Value Proposition </li></ul>“ ... the concept of the Interoperability Clearinghouse is sound and vital. Its developing role as an honest broker of all interoperability technologies, no matter what the source, is especially needed. Such efforts should be supported by any organization that wants to stop putting all of its money into maintaining archaic software and obtuse data formats, and instead start focusing on bottom-line issues of productivity and cost-effective use of information technology.” Assessment by Leading FFRDC, 2000
  4. 4. Our mission to advance collaborative architecture mechanisms that assure the successful modeling of enterprise technical solutions aligned with business drivers in an open, and conflict free, market place
  5. 5. The Challenge: New IT Initiatives (eGov, Web Services, DHS) lack access to the right set of resources and industry best practices necessary to cycle through the pre-acquisition planning and architecture process <ul><li>Lack of reliable and timely solution architecture data leads to implementation failure! </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Research indicates that 34% of current IT failures (72%) is due to problems in aligning optimal technology with business needs (Dec 98 Information Week Feature Article on why IT Fails) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Fast paced IT market, combined with high failures rates, dictate a change in current technology adoption process (Clinger/Cohen Act) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Both business requirements and technology change before most agencies can get through traditional COTS evaluation process; research, testing, prototyping . (AF SAB Report, April 2000) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Security and Interoperability considerations rarely addressed, yet critical when implementing commercial solution (White House Draft Cyber Security Strategy). </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Stake holders need a common criteria and standardized vetting process by which they can communicate business needs to emerging technical solutions (IAC EA SIG) </li></ul></ul>
  6. 6. Critical Success Factors (CSF) for making architectures actionable for major IT programs <ul><li>CIOs, PMs and Government Leaders need; </li></ul><ul><li>Business context of emerging standards and commercial offerings </li></ul><ul><li>More timely and cost effective mechanisms for accessing market capabilities in a conflict free environment </li></ul><ul><li>Clear and unambiguous architecture views that enable clear Stake Holder agreements (Value Chains, CBA) where business needs can be aligned with proven solutions </li></ul><ul><li>Means of linking architecture and acquisition processes while reducing risk of program delay and failure </li></ul><ul><li>Partnership with community of interests (agencies business lines, CIOs, Vendors, Integrators) to share best practices and implementation lessons learned. </li></ul>IF THESE RESONATE WITH YOU, then SAIL is the vehicle for getting there What assures success?
  7. 7. What are the proposed “products” of SAIL <ul><li>A public/private partnership where agencies, vendors, integrators, and standards groups collaborate development and certification of Solution Architectures, Business Cases and AoA. </li></ul><ul><li>An Architecture Resource Center that bootstrap agencies understanding and application of emerging technologies in an architecture context </li></ul><ul><li>A virtual government/industry solution architecture certification lab that leverages the existing market capabilities and implementation experiences of industry </li></ul><ul><li>A non-profit advisory service that puts OMB reference models in the hands of PMs, Architectures, Business Lines and Integrators </li></ul><ul><li>A shared knowledge exchange where re-useable solution architecture templates are continuously updated by a large community of interests and stake holders </li></ul><ul><li>A new e-Gov and DHS initiative that provides agencies with the means of accessing critical expertise necessary to get from architectures to implementation reality . </li></ul>
  8. 8. Table Of Contents <ul><li>The Need, Concept and Vision </li></ul><ul><li>Value Chain Participants </li></ul><ul><li>Outcomes </li></ul><ul><li>SAIL Concept of Operations </li></ul><ul><li>Value Proposition </li></ul>Excerpt from EDS Business Case Analysis: “The leveraging of our efforts with other parties through the formulation of a non-profit consortium is the most cost effective and efficient way of achieving the goal of interoperability assurance among heterogeneous systems. This ICH capability will augment our capability and provide us much more information about products, standards, and viable enterprise solution sets than we could ever realize through our own internal efforts.”

  18. 18. To assist agencies in the rapid assembly and realization of their eGov and DHS integration initiatives, a solution validation center is needed <ul><li>Solution Architecture Center Objectives: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Act as an honest broker to balance strategic vision and reality </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Capture business requirements in OMB Reference Model terms (BRM, PRM, SCRM, DRM, TRM - A130) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Enable greater stake holder participation and oversight (congress, CIO, CFO, COO, users, suppliers, industry partners) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Streamline business case to solution architecture process (S803) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Provide industry outreach - leverage standards, COTS and commercial best practices (OMG A119 compliance) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Create a “mock-up” of the solution that validate stakeholder needs prior to acquisition </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Enable multiple agencies/states to collaborate on a common solution architecture. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Share lessons learned and solution architecture templates for reduced risk, and faster time to market </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Protect stake holders from Conflict of Interests concerns during the planning and architecture process! </li></ul></ul>Step 1 Identify Solution Architecture to begin strategy realization Step 2 Select components/ build solution components Step 3 Rollout to stakeholders for validation of strategy Step 4 Define production requirements, release for production build Note – The Prototyping/Solution Center does NOT build the Production Version
