Competing education factions reconcilable

Filed under: Education,Standards — lenand @ 10:38 pm

ISO 18876 is the International Standard that establishes an architecture, a methodology, and other specifications for integrating industrial data for exchange, access, and sharing.

It supports:

  • data sharing and data integration;
  • specification of mappings between models; and
  • data transformation.

The standard arose in the private sector to resolve interoperability issues between apparently incompatible application systems.  There were sound commercial reasons for doing it. The public sector has the same need, but has ignored the concepts and potential benefits.

Perhaps there is room for analysing the SIF specification and ISB Business Data Architecture using the standard.  It should be an unbiased exercise and help the migration to a nationally agreed model.  Good models should lead to better, interoperating, application systems.
