                    Handouts
• Slide 9: Solution Technology Requirements
  Indicators Crosswalk Template Snapshot:
  – Land Quality Management Segment has captured the
    information flow and interface profile table. Each
    solution architect could use the information flow in the
    table to create this diagram as a supporting artifact.
• My Comment: Even better, the interface could
  be to an executable application that linked
  information architecture to data architecture
  according to Slide 14 (see next slide).

                 Handouts
• Slide 14: Business Transformation
  Framework:
  – Expected Impacts on Technology are (1) Data
    Optimization, (2) Data Management &
    Communications, and (3) Metadata
    Management and External Access and Data
    Sharing.
  My Comment: This again could be realized in a
    real application that provides actual “line of
    sight” and Emergency Management data and
    information (see next slides for pilot example).

        Integrate Architectures:
         Data Architecture Pilot
• Enterprise (subject matter expertise and peer
  review): EPA Report on the Environment
• Segment (topics and subtropics): Five
  Categories and 89 Indicators.
• Solutions (data tables and metadata):
  Standardized and DRM 2.0 Compliant.
My Comment: What we have already done is now
  called a Web 2.0/3.0 Enterprise Mashup.

  Web 2.0/3.0 Enterprise Mashups
• Enterprise Mashups are application hybrids combining
  content and functions from more than one existing
  source to create powerful Web applications, integrated
  Web experiences and expanded customer value
  networks. Mashups are the fastest growing enterprise
  ecosystem on the Web by far. Mashups are social, role-
  based, network-centric, complex, distributed and
  essential to all knowledge-based networks, models and
  businesses. Source: Open Enterprise 2.0 Mashup
  Summit - Expanding Customer Value Networks
My Comment: So we would like all the Segment
  Architectures to be “Solutioned” (implemented) in such a
  way that EPA and its stakeholders can mash them up at
  will to solve needs that we haven’t yet thought existed.
