Ed was kind enough to share his blog at:


There is some data on cost savings due to better information management 
there that is relevant to the $$$ discussion.

BTW, I was surprised to see the BAH estimates for operational cost for a 
federal registry. Joe can you share any details on the breakdown of 
these cost estimates:

Following is quoted from http://www.gcn.com/23_16/news/26367-1.html :

" Booz Allen Hamilton estimated that building an XML schema registry 
would cost about $7.7 million, with a total operational cost of around 
$59 million over a 10-year period."

Thanks in advance Joe for some background data on this estimate.
