The meeting failed to gain quorum possibly attributed to teleconference difficulties. By consensus, the group in attendance chose to continue to discuss action item status, updates from the Framework TC and the use case documents. The Framework TC is currently completing a high-level review of DCML & ITIL-CMDB and is looking at use cases that will illustrate this relationship. The Framework TC currently has a reference document currently in review explaining the role and interactions between DCML & ITIL-CMDB. http://www.oasis-open.org/apps/org/workgroup/dcml-frame/document.php?document_id=12003

The group is also addressing OWF/RDF by approaching a narrow target and implementing DCML using both options (OWL/UML).


The Application/Services Use Case document is still in review with some questions arising from the ability to understand how DCML plans to integrate ITIL into some of the use cases. Each participant of the TC will go through the use case document for the purpose of completing a detailed review of the use cases during the next meeting


ACTION ITEM: ALL – Review use case document in preparation for detailed review April 11, 2005.



As a reminder – the Application Services TC will be having a face-to-face session at the Oasis Symposium Wednesday April 27, 2005. To register for the event, please visit http://www.oasis-open.org/events/symposium_2005/registration.php


ACTION ITEM: Sarah to set up a ballot item to determine how many will be able to participate at the face-to-face session


10:53am adjourn.


 Review of the action items resulted in the following updates:


Work with Member Section, OASIS Board, and Marketing TC (as well as other TCs) on the completion of the necessary relationships with ITSMF, COBIT, COSO, ISACA, and other associated IT Services Management bodies on our ITIL-mapping strategies, in order to be legally and inter-body approved in our strategies. We need a confirmation on this in order to proceed. Action Item is for J. Darrel Thomas and Sarah Barbuscia, Robin and David Basham.

Status: Currently in process

Review the ITIL CMDB/CI descriptions in order to familiarize ourselves with our starting target. David Basham will provide links to the group for this review. We will discuss at our next teleconference.

Status: Still open – after clarification of the action item, David will be following up for closure.

Upon corporate approval, Bill Rehm will provide a submission of the EDS reference architecture CMDB and example CIs for usage as starting points within the work. This may be leverageable from both the Apps/Services TC and Framework TC. Action Item is assigned to Bill Rehm.

Status: Still pending

Provide Framework use-cases, Apps/Services Use Cases, and newly created ITIL/CMDB/CI Use cases to the team for review and for comment/update at our next meeting. Action Item is assigned to J. Darrel Thomas

Status: Action Completed – review still outstanding


Upon OASIS verification, we will acquire the CIM element descriptions for review for insertion and usage within our Schema and Apps/Services model, focusing on reuse and element to process to service mapping that DCML is targeted at addressing. These submissions will be ferreted by J. Darrel Thomas, David Basham, and Bill Rehm.
Status: Completed


The Runbook documents need to be mapped to the usage with ITIL and DCML. David will work with Robin to make the references, but Fred didn't have linkages to the documents that are a part of this area. I'm resending the links to the group for additional review at our next meeting.

Status: Action Completed – review still in process

To aid in the formalization work, documents on the RDF/OWL usage from the previous DCML organization would be beneficial. These documents were created in the DCML Organization prior to its merger with OASIS, but are available for review by the team, particularly aiding Fred and Andre's discussions on the Framework TC. J. Darrel Thomas has the Action Item.
Status: Action Completed
