  • The last call in this year’s solicitation begins to develop a focus on EarthCube Enterprise Architecture.

    This is a call for planning grants to bring together teams with experience in developing complex cyberinfrastructure architectures. The goal is to have these teams understand the landscape of resources used by academic geosciences researchers and consider and pose innovative designs for connection the pieces. Designs that can accomodate uncertaintly and changes to the CI system will be most successful.

    The output of these awards will be Conceptual Design Reports. These reports are meant to foster discussion between the other components of EarthCube. And they must be presented in a way that is accessible to a broad audience of end-users and other CI experts. The first stage will be a discussion of the many different approaches to architecture.

    Development of enterprise architecture must occur in phases. Following this first phase, Conceptual Design, we anticipate a Design Refinement phase based on user requirements and assessment managed through Test Enterprise Governance,
    community input from workshops and EarthCube RCNs, and interaction with EarthCube Building Blocks.

    3. 3. Phased Approach • An initial conceptual design phase will be followed by refinement based on user requirements and assessment, followed by the beginning of the implementation phase. • This level of participation in the development of the architecture is essential to establish an initial scope that is appropriate to meet the initial needs of the end users, and connecting technologies useful to geosciences researchers and educators into the architectural framework.
    4. 4. Architecture Challenges Determining the overall technological architecture of EarthCube will be difficult, because: 1) there are many competing approaches; 2) there are significant legacy systems constituting the fabric of geosciences, and 3) there is a diversity and complexity of the information about the Earth system that needs to be linked in a knowledge environment. 4) the scope of the EarthCube component of infrastructure needs to be determined by the community The strategy to determine architecture for EarthCube is composed of several elements which include: 1) the establishment of a process for development of the innovative EarthCube architecture guided, evaluated, and refined by end-users; 2) the use of a stepwise process of selection based on merit, feasibility, and experience-based competence.
