Enterprise Architecture

The creation of a Digital Asset management framework should adhere to the federal standards of an Enterprise Architecture Framework for the organization. Most of the federal agencies are adopting the creation of a business model that can be labeled as a virtual enterprise. The guidelines are based on FEA framework. With our significant leadership experience in this domain, we can help drive digital asset management system implementation that not only becomes a fit in a service model but also compliant with the EA reference models contained in an integrated enterprise model. This will help enhanced ability to leverage intellectual property and communicate based on common ontology. The incorporation of metadata is fundamental to the success of information retrieval and distribution.  Metadata is “data about data” and is most often a definition or a description or a list of characteristics of the data.  Metadata acts as a lynchpin to the data environment and serves as the backbone of the “Discovery Services”. Metadata ensures consistency and quality and uniqueness across the functional boundaries of an organization. Metadata is also vital in supporting enterprise and user specific taxonomies; and bridges the gap between standard definitions of data and user centric definitions.

Technical metadata for the digital assets/documents should serve as a repository to encompass technical characteristics of data.  The technical attributes are, but not limited to, source, transformation rules, and quality/reliability criteria. The adherence to this discipline gives us the opportunity to extend our services to provide necessary support in this area and may be help create a high level blueprint.

Security (FISMA, NIST-800-53) Compliance

In 2006, all government departments and agencies are required to comply with a comprehensive set of guidelines that governs authentication, authorization, certification and role based access controls for gaining access to all digital and manual assets.  The FISMA 2000 legislation has given the mandate to NIST to develop a standard for IT security and assurance.  This effort has resulted in the standard NIST-800-53 with specific guidance for low, medium and high threshold for different classification of applications for satisfying the FISMA compliance.
