Past, Present, and Future
  • Mind Map
  • 1. Human Understanding
  • E.g., Chief Architect Forum EA Glossary, the FEA
    PMO Web Site re-design, Mapping Your Investments
    to the FEA, etc.
  • Computer Implementation of Human Understanding
  • E.g., FEA Reference Model Ontology, DRM XML
    Schema, SiberLogic Pilot for the Records
    Management Profile, etc.
  • Computer Execution of Previous in Actual Systems
  • E.g., the reference model is an XML schema which
    is the service component bus in the IT system
    (Andreas Tolk), SIA Pilots (Digital Harbor and
    Broadstokes Group), Federal Executive Branch
    Continuity of Communications (Roy Roebuck), etc.

Past, Present, and Future
  • XML 2005 Conference, Tuesday, November 15, 9 AM.
  • Opening Keynote From Atoms to OWLs the new
    ecology of the Semantic Web.
  • Presenter Jim Hendler, Professor, University of
    Maryland, USA.
  • Over the past couple of years, Semantic Web
    deployment has really started rolling. Successes
    have included adoption of RDF by major
    corporations and the development of new
    ontology-based technologies of use for many
    enterprise and web applications. Despite this,
    controversy still seems to abound with respect to
    both the relationship of the Semantic Web to XML,
    and the use of these technologies. This talk will
    explain what the Semantic Web is all about and,
    perhaps more importantly, attempt to dispel two
    pervasive myths -- that XML and the Semantic Web
    are incompatible, and that XML is able to do all
    that the Semantic Web promises without
    reinventing the semantic extensions inherent in
    RDF and OWL.

Past, Present, and Future
  • SICoP Support for the Data Reference Model
  • Implementing the Semantic Web Part 1. Semantic
    Technology Profile for the Data Reference Model
  • Use Case 1 Geospatial Data
  • Use Case 2 U.S. EPA
  • Use Case 3 FEA
  • Use Cases XX See next slide for all the
  • SICoP Paradigm for the Data Reference Model
  • A model (ontology) for the document, the
    reference model itself, and for applications.
  • SICoP Leadership of the new DRM Implementation
    Through Iteration and Testing Team (ITIT) (e.g.
    todays Implementation Profile presentations).

Past, Present, and Future
Convergence in the FEA Paradigm Shifts
Evolving to Service Oriented Architecture
Evolving to a Data-Driven Approach for the DRM
Semantic Interoperability Architecture
The problem is not that there are no semantics,
the problem is that the semantics is hidden in
software components, Stefan Decker, quoted by
Christopher Welty in Towards a Semantics for the
Past, Present, and Future

Evolution of the SOA Platform
Past, Present, and Future
  • Example 1 - Web Services for E-Government
  • 1. Organizational-Simple
  • Led CIO Council award winning VoiceXML Web
    Service for EPA Emergency Response pilot that has
    subsequently been commercialized and implemented
    as Infrastructure (see below).
  • 2. Technical-Composite
  • Lead the CIO Councils E-Forms for E-Gov Pilot
    that saw 13 E-forms vendors each build an XML Web
    Service using a common XML Schema for E-Grants to
    increase their collective technical
    interoperability with one another.
  • 3. Semantic-Infrastructure
  • Our recent Semantic Web for Military Applications
    Conference featured 40 vendors implementing
    RDF/OWL including the Putting Context to Work
    Semantic Keys to Improve Rapid First Response
    that used an event ontology to achieve semantic
    interoperability across five vendors.

Past, Present, and Future
Modeling the FEA Reference Model Documents
  • Federal Enterprise Reference Model Ontology (FEA
  • This is a composite application with multiple
    ontologies created from manually extracting the
    concepts from the FEA PRM, BRM, SRM, and TRM
    documents into Protégé.
  • This has been recommended to OMB/AIC as the way
    to maintain and update the Reference Models in
    the future to insure semantic consistency across
    all the Reference Models (and Profiles).
