Cory, Okay, so there are a finite number of strategies and you have people
that like to mark them up manually. But do Google, Facebook, LinkedIn, etc.
that use  Hadoop use NIEM? NO!

 

I am preparing briefings for Congress and the Japanese Government and I do
not see that NIEM is used in either big data or open government data.

 

Looking at David Webber's work, I could conclude that Oracle may be a larger
and better implementor of NIEM than "NIEM" itself!

Brand,

Re: I do not see any mention of "Big Data" in either NIEM or StratML. Will
they apply or scale to "Big Data"?

 

I don't see how it applies. NIEM is for information sharing, the
repositories of information shared may certainly be "big data" but you would
share only a portion - for that portion, NIEM is fine. So yes, this should
architecturally scale to sharing "big data" information since it is
orthogonal.  The underlying logical model may also be fine as a schema of
the "big data" but that is not its design intent.

 

As for StratML, it is for strategies - how many strategies do you expect to
have? This doesn't seem like a big data thing either.

 

Big data technologies certainly have a place but let's not try to apply the
latest craze to everything.

The recently issued National Strategy for Information Sharing and
Safeguarding is now available in StratML Part 1, Strategic Plan, format at
http://xml.gov/stratml/drybridge/index.htm#NSISS 

 

It would be good if the implementation plan were to be published in open,
standard, machine-readable StratML Part 2, Performance Plan/Report, format
with designated roles and clearly specified performance indicators.

Doing so would be consistent with the provisions of section 10 of the GPRA
Modernization Act (GPRAMA) as well as OMB Circular A-119.
