Subject: RE: [saf] review of Educational powerpoint

Title: Message
Hi Jeff, 

1.       The first six slides do not clearly differentiate SAF from (yet another) CEP/Workflow.  The remaining slides, however, do a great job of differentiation.  Would recommend starting with slide 7, and moving the first 6 slides to the back of the deck. 

 It's a good idea to start with the problem setting, but then in the cartoon slides we use terms that haven't been defined yet (Diagnostician, Practitioner, etc). So this is problematic...

2.       Slide 3 explains Symptom, Syndrome, Protocol, and Prescription.  It would be good to articulate that these entities are primarily envelopes for events, rules, action templates, and actions.  Thus we aren’t re-inventing BPEL, RuleML, etc. 


3.       The “cartoon” slides are great, but missing two important pieces:

a.       The provider is likely to provide Symptoms (and thus contribute Syndromes to the catalog).  The Symptoms would generally describe service notifications such as “service will be out for maintenance”, or “unplanned outage”, etc. 

I agree with this as well. But then it might get bloated, no? 

b.      There is no discussion of composability.  The consumer would typically compose Syndromes from other syndromes (contributed from various sources) and also “glue” Syndromes to Protocols.  In my opinion – composability of diverse syndromes/protocols is the key differentiator for SAF. 

 This is also interesting but very difficult to depict properly I think! Open to suggestions.

4.       Getting nitpicky, but slide 23 is titled “Collaborations”, and I initially thought it was describing SAF catalog collaborations. 

 :-) Do you want to rewrite the title? Jeff has the pen!
