  23. 23. <ul>Workpackages dependencies </ul>
  24. 24. <ul>CORE WP2 </ul>Information model (del 2.2) for the statistical process, designed in accordance with these principles: <ul><li>CORA requirements
  25. 25. Rectangular data sets : rows and columns
  26. 26. Strong typing : each column one value type only and so a data set is (strongly) typed - also rules and parameters are typed
  27. 27. Data set Kinds : constrain the data sets that can be transferred (micro data, dimensional, classifications, ...)
  28. 28. Business objects: usage of XML to support modeling business objects outside CORE, such as the GSIM </li></ul>
  29. 29. <ul>CORE WP3 </ul>WP3 Architecture - technical definition of unique environment for: <ul><li>Designing </li><ul><li>Statistical processes in terms of abstract services
  30. 30. Exchanged data and metadata </li></ul><li>Running </li><ul><li>Designed processes by invoking wrapped tools </li></ul></ul>
  31. 31. <ul>CORE WP3 </ul>CORE Data: <ul><li>Domain descriptor: meta-model with entities and entity properties ( open to DB | RDF | GSIM integration)
  32. 32. CORE data model (according to the information model) : Rectangular data set, Data set kind ...
  33. 33. Mapping model: mapping CORE data to Domain Descriptor </li></ul>Integration API : making a tool a CORE service, i.e. translating inputs and outputs of the tool in a completely transparent and automatic way
  34. 34. <ul>CORE WP4 </ul>Most important result: workflow tools evaluation Requirements list based on CORE and NSIs needs <ul><li>Comparison based on four different axes: </li><ul><li>Modeling : g raphical interface, m odel translation
  35. 35. Integration : c ommunication technology, standards , u ser management, v ersioning ...
  36. 36. Execution : m onitoring, t raceability
  37. 37. General : u sability, m anual/automatic steps ... </li></ul></ul>
  38. 38. <ul>CORE WP5 and WP6 </ul><ul><li>These WPs provide working solutions that permits the automatic execution of selected GSBPM sub-processes starting from WP3 results
  39. 39. WP5 provides an implementation in .NET while WP6 provides an implementation in Java
  40. 40. In the afternoon DEMO for two environments </li></ul>

  55. 55. <ul>Final meeting Agenda </ul>9.30 – 10.00 Opening (Eurostat) 10.00 – 10.30 CORE Project Introduction (Istat) 10.30 –11.15 CORE Model (CBS) 11.15 – 11.30 Coffee 11.30 - 12.00 CORE Architecture (Istat) 12.00 –12.15 Workflow Solutions (Insee) 12.15 – 13.00 Q&A session 13.00 – 14.00 Lunch Break 14.00 –15.30 DEMO Sessions (Istat and CBS) 15.30 – 16.30 Open Discussion & Conclusions
  56. 56. <ul>Final remarks </ul>Rich results in 13 months: requirements -> general model -> software Relevance of work atmosphere Good cooperation between countries: WPs shared Big advancements in meetings: importance of presence -> beside wiki tools like webconference? Good cooperation with other groups : SAB , GSIM , HLG , MSIS , METIS , SDMX ESSnet (deliverable) Competences, skills and tools to be preserved Need sponsorship inside NSIs, in Eurostat and in other groups
  57. 57. <ul><ul><li>Future? </li></ul></ul><ul><li>CORE next steps: </li><ul><li>CORE is NOT a package, but a “new way of working” -> industrialization & NSI involvement
  58. 58. CORE needs: </li><ul><li>for industrialization : environment tested in NSIs -> generate requirements -> implementation
  59. 59. for adoption : Eurostat sponsorhip </li></ul></ul></ul>Connections outside CORE: <ul><ul><li>HLG-BAS: more cooperation needed (sprints and others)
  60. 60. Mutual review with OCMIMF on GSIM
  61. 61. SDMX integration and support to SAB </li></ul></ul>
