StratML Public & Private Sectors Uses - White Paper (2013)

By R. Russell Ruggiero posted 10-05-2013 21:49


This large-scale effort (8,000+ words/25+ pages) by Ranjeeth K. Thunga and R. Russell Ruggiero has been designed to cover material from ground level (code) to the 10,000' foot view (business cases). As a result it covers a wide audience (e.g., CIO, director, manager, etc.) and is applicable to both private and public sector organizations seeking ways to improve efficiency and data transparency. Going the open-standards route is logical if an entity plans to properly deploy a large-scale IT solution. While compliance is the main goal, this path also helps to expose the challenges of working in true heterogeneous environments.Part One & Part Two created the foundation for StratML, and recent work on Part Three has taken this effort to a new level, which has been articulated in a newly released large-scale StratML White Paper. Below are two main themes of this new piece, which are meant to expose StratML's value in both the private and public sectors. Private Sector Focus: StratML could increase the ability to discover partners and customers, bridge heterogeneous platforms, gather feedback, and clarify its intent, values, and objectives. Public Sector Focus: StratML could be leveraged to augment technologies already in place to better deal with natural (e.g., earthquake, hurricane, etc.) and manmade (e.g., terrorist attack, oil spill, etc.) events. The ability to play across both sectors is a strong draw as its ability to coexist with mature, new, and future technologies. From a discovery viewpoint, StratML can help organizations and individuals find potential partners that share common, or complementary, goals and objectives. In addition, it can facilitate stakeholder feedback for strategic goals and objectives, while providing centralized updating and maintenance of such information. Regarding open-standards, machine-readable formats like StratML can better adapt to changes and promote a true agnostic IT landscape. On the topic of social media, it is abundantly clear that organizations which effectively leverage social networks are likely to gain a distinct advantage over those that do not. Social networks that incorporate a standard like StratML can demonstrate even sharper advantages by enabling far more effective discovery and alignment for public and private organizations alike. Bottom line, the ability to improve efficiency, along with data transparency are two very compelling aspects regarding the new capabilities of StratML.

It is nice to see the White Paper up. The standard can bring meaningful evolution in the way strategy information is represented and processed.

You are most welcome. We should be done with the final two reviews by the end of this week.

Thanks, Russ, for helping get the word out on the StratML standard. Will look forward to publication of the white paper.
