3 Interoperability is about: Two (or more) independant organizations (enterprises, governmental bodies, divisions, departments, ) Without any common or shared authority and governance With independent and potentially incompatible architecture governance frameworks With a need (desire, obligation, necessity, stake, ) to collaborate by means of independently purchased/developed automated systems Without a prior agreement how to do that Applicability examples: two (semi-)public organizations in different countries with a common or similar or related mission; service orientation using ad hoc third parties; incident response involving multiple organisations by coincidence; due diligence before merger or takeover; 3

11 Three different contexts in which interoperability has to be modeled: The (traditional) ICT context describes how information systems owned by different organizations can interoperate, using a layered (OSI like) interaction model The administrative context describes the interoperability governance across enterprises for different classes of objectives The policy context describes how legislation determines what must, can or cannot be done in terms of enforceability, civil rights and legislation (also using a layered model) across jurisdictions 11

12 Procedural layer (process layer) ensuring that information that has to be shared and is correctly understood can be properly acted upon (legislation, objectives, priorities, resources, retribution, deeds) Semantic layer ensuring that information that has to be shared and is correctly read can be properly understood (context specific metadata, ontologies, taxonomies, masterdata) Technical layer (syntactic layer) ensuring that information that has to be shared and is correctly received and recognised can be properly read (characterset, syntax, data formats, currency, units, presentation language, etc) Media exchange layer ensuring that information that has to be shared can be properly received and recognised (internet, memory cards, CD s etc) The technical interoperability layer handles The procedural interoperability layer all The generic network transformations and media interoperability that are needed The handles Semantic all process Interoperability adaptations layer that handles are in covers order all properly what has read to messages be specified in the all necessary context specific to be able transpositions to process that are transmitted technology by architecture a system deliverables from the external necessary messages to in properly a collaborative understand context. the This domain.

14 Procedural layer (process layer) ensuring that information that has to be shared and is correctly understood can be properly acted upon (legislation, objectives, priorities, resources, retribution, deeds) Many attempts around but no universally adopted generic solution that covers all. Many partial solutions are premature pending global adoption of a universal solution for semantic interoperability Semantic layer ensuring that information that has to be shared and is correctly read can be properly understood (context specific metadata, ontologies, taxonomies, masterdata) Many attempts around (HL7, LOINC, SNOMED, EN ) but no universally adopted generic solution that covers all. Focus of many initiatives, including wasted efforts, however a promising standard based on ISO 11179: UDEF Technical layer (syntactic layer) ensuring that information that has to be shared and is correctly received and recognised can be properly read (characterset, syntax, data formats, currency, units, presentation language, etc) Media exchange layer ensuring that information that has to be shared can be properly received and recognised (internet, memory cards, CD s etc) Problem solved by general availability of various middleware solutions. Still dependant on implementation by professionals. Much legacy around that predates generic solutions Problem solved by pervasive use of internet, USB, SD-cards etc Performance improvements anticipated and desired Commoditized for all people > 5-10 yrs 14

23 John Smith In OWL you can say That person is called John Smith This data field contains John Smith This data field describes that person In UDEF you can say This data field contains the name of a person The UDEF is Less expressive than an OWL ontology Simpler and easier to use The UDEF can be represented in RDF To enable automatic reasoning when linked with OWL ontologies 23

24 When a data element concept is not adequately addressed within the current UDEF, follow the procedures in the UDEF Extension Guide 24

25 Many knowledge domain specific concepts not modeled Open Group lacks in depth expertise in many knowledge domains Open Group only models vendor neutral data element concepts Many enterprise specific concepts not modeled Individual enterprises would want to model certain areas differently Governance process not agile due to quality procedures Some required extensions do not exist in other languages Enterprises want to try some extensions now UDEF assumes the context of an Enterprise for all data to be modeled For some required concepts the enterprise concept is not known, not applicable or not relevant Enterprises want flexibility to describe data in multiple contexts UDEF is public domain in its entirity Sometimes the understanding of data conflicts with security requirements The solution: Distributed UDEF UDEF 25

26 Not the same data element concepts in different trees Not a replication of what already is in UDEF Not an unlimited freedom to use some of the UDEF principles with a different flavour of your own choice Not (yet) a complete and ultimate solution for universal semantic interoperability Many more data element concepts not modeled in UDEF today or in future The possibility to define data element concepts in some other context than a generic enterprise Full integration of UDEF / DDEF definitions in an integrated semantic environment A major step forward to overcome the hurdles of universal semantic interoperability 26

27 The Vision: The UDEF-semantic infrastructure will be a distributed set of registries (like the DNS) each managed by its own registrar, using common standards and common and collaborative, partly shared, governance processes. The global (root) UDEF-registry is managed and maintained by the Open Group, who as well has the authority to assign registrars of descendant registries and the authority to define the governance processes. Every system owner can freely use the UDEF on a royalty free basis and can submit extension proposals. Future extensions of the UDEF trees, including descendant registries will enable all systems around the world the exchange data in a semantically consistent manner, without requirements for system managers to make any prior arrangements beyond being UDEF-compliant. National language versions of UDEF extend this vision across language barriers 27

31 The Open Group retains responsibility for the root UDEF trees UDEF-tree connectors Descendant tree Potential candidate descendant tree registrar Potential candidate descendant tree registrar Descendant tree Connectors represent root of descendant tree in parent tree Root concept in descendant tree matches extension position in parent tree Root of descendant tree and connector in parent tree are aliases whenever the context of the parent tree applies Descendant tree registrar has received accreditation by parent registrar Concept domain of descendant tree agreed with parent registrar Parent registrar defines roots of descendant trees; descendant registrars define branches in their trees 31
