Dick, It was Roy Roebuck's work that I was told yesterday that you were
considering using as the DRM Business Case not the SICoP Business Case.    (01)

Thanks for the info. below, but #2 is not correct.  The FEA PMO
is not considering the SICoP best practice business case as the business
case for the DRM.  Kim & Ren will make that recommendation to this
office upon review.

Kim, Ren, and Dick,    (07)

On behalf of SICoP, I want to thank you for your message and the
opportunity to work on the DRM in an open and collaborative manner and
to summarize our DRM contributions based on extensive interviews (OMB,
CIOs, Cief Architects, Data artchitects, etc.), workshops, and pilots as
summarized in our recent SICoP Public Meeting (see
http://colab.cim3.net/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?SICoPConference_2005_09_14):    (08)

1. The SICoP Business Case for Semantic Technologies contains specific
recommendations for the DRM (see slides 20, 25, and 30 in Mills Davis
presentation).    (09)

2. The Best Practice Business Case Example featured at the SICoP Meeting
(see slide 9 in Roy Roebuck's presentation) is being considered by
FEA-PMO as the Business Case for the DRM!    (010)

3. The Featured Best Practice Implementation Example (see Rohit
presentation) is being called the "Killer App" for the DRM.    (011)

4. The DRM Implementation Profiles and SICoP Pilots are being included
in the DRM Implementation Through Iteration and Testing (ITIT) Team's
work. For example, the Collaborative Ontology Development Service and
(CODS) was announced at the SICoP Meeting (see Peter Yim's slides) and
given a special recognition for providing critical infrastructure that
will support SICoP and other Federal CoPs, the new National Center for
Ontological Research, and a world-wide community in collaborative
ontology development and applications. SICoP and the Ontolog Forum,
which Peter Yim is the co-covenor of, have developed a strong working
relationship between these two CoPs to advance the use of ontological
engineering in enterprise architecture, health information architecture,
etc.    (012)

I plan to report on these DRM contributions at the DRM ITIT Team and AIC
meetings today and to the Best Practices Committee meeting next week,
and thought they might be useful in your informal briefing to the CIOs
on September 21st.    (013)

Best regards,    (014)

  Good afternoon, DRM Working Group    (017)

  Congratulations on completing your draft sections in time to meet your
August 31st deadline.  On behalf of my AIC Co-chair Ren Calhoon and
Chief Architect Dick Burk, we thank you for your hard work and
dedication.    (018)

  As you turn your attention to the refinement and harmonization of your
concepts and ideas, it very important to work closely with your Chief
Architects/Data Architects.   They will have a core responsibility to
implement the future DRM v1.5.  For that reason, it's critical for you
achieve common understanding about enterprise data architecture
with your chief architect so that the DRM v1.5 provides value.    (019)

  I would also ask and anticipate that your efforts are informed by
communications with your respective CIOs.   Your CIO's informed
understanding, and leadership are critical to making the DRM successful.    (020)

  In preparation for the formal review of the DRM v1.5 by CIOs next
Ren and I will be briefing CIOs informally on Sept. 21. We have asked
DRM Executive Team to attend this session, to listen to the discussion
relay the highlights back to you. Our goal is to foster dialogue between
your efforts and the CIOs as we build toward consensus.    (021)

  I will be calling into your Sept 14th virtual meeting from 1:00- 1:30
At that time, I hope to hear from you regarding progress made and any
individual departments and agencies think I need to be aware of.  Thank
very much for your attention and I look forward to speaking with you
tomorrow.    (022)

  Sincerely,    (023)
