I must confess
I haven’t done a deep dive into each of these standards yet
but at first glance they seem more like a set of tools and
techniques that can assist in the deployment of a TGF
programme. To that end it would seem more of a case of
referencing them in the Policy Product Matrix and maybe the
TGF Primer rather than adding to or creating new TGF
Patterns. But before we go down that route we should be
certain that there are no similar or competing standards
that we should give due consideration to. Do you have any
knowledge or views on that please?
Views on this
from other TC colleagues would be appreciated please.
the last TC call, I mentioned that there are a few standards
from the Object Management Group might be useful to facilitate
the analysis and simulation of the complex problem space that
the TGF is addressing.
providing a short intro of those items here, will be happy to
arrange a few conference calls/webinars with domain experts
from the OMG to explore the topics further with the TC.
Semantic of Business Vocabularies and Business Rules
- It is intended
to capture the semantics of business concepts and
relationships with support for natural-language-like
declarative _expression_ of
business rules of a complex entity, such as a business.
It includes the ability to express the concepts and rules
in multiple vocabularies (i.e., multiple languages).
This is an existing spec. a high level descriptions can be
found at this link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Semantics_of_Business_Vocabulary_and_Business_Rules
- Relevance to TGF: We need to examine
whether the current TGF Pattern Language spec. can be
enhanced with SBVR. This will allow instance of
requirements/concepts to be translated and managed at
regional level at the same time keeping the coherence at the
state/government level using modeling and relationship
VDML: Value Delivery Modeling Language
- This is a work in progress in the OMG
(potential adoption in early 2013). The heart of this work
is to support Business Design and Innovation Management
driven by the creation and exchange of value. It fills the
gap between business models (e.g., Osterwalder) and business
- Relevance to TGF: This systematic
modeling approach is essential for virtualized service
delivery and franchising business model with citizen
engagement as envisioned by the TGF
- This blog post on “Outside-in Business
Architecture” provides some insights to the work http://fredacummins.blogspot.com/2012/01/outside-in-business-architecture-with.html
CMMN: Case Management Model and Notation
- This is a work in progress in the OMG
(potential adoption in early 2013). The specification
defines a language for modeling of elements of a type of
case (e.g., tasks, stages, events, constraints,…) to support
adaptive planning, decision-making, collaboration and
coordination on individual cases.
- Relevance to TGF: From a whole
government perspective, services to citizens and other
stakeholders often require ad-hoc coordination and
collaboration that crosses organizational boundaries and
engages shared services. For every transformational
project that is going to carry out in a “virtual
organization” fashion, similar governance and organization
process/structures are required as one would expect from a
single enterprise environment.
- This type of work environment is already seen
for projects like “Healthy cities” yet lack of a structure
for effective community engagement. Here is another blog
post that provides a high level view: http://fredacummins.blogspot.com/2011/07/knowledge-worker-cockpit.html
Please note all of the above specifications are geared for
business/strategy thinkers to clearly model the desired
business/benefits first so that appropriate technology and who
they should be sourced from can be assessed in a much more
holistic manner in order to meet the business/citizen benefits
that are envisioned.
interested to get your feedback on my assessment of their
relevance to the TGF effort.
