OASIS Specification: BCM

Interoperable e-Business Information Systems

OASIS Specification: BCM

The OASIS Business-Centric Methodology (BCM) TC developed a specification which provides business managers with a set of clearly defined methods with which to acquire agile and interoperable e-business information systems within communities of interests.   The BCM provides an approach that is based an information architecture driven by contracts (agreements) with a solid foundation of unconstrained business concepts to support the organization, rather than the alternative of building based on technology.   https://www.oasis-open.org/committees/tc_home.php?wg_abbrev=bcm

For Enterprise Agility and Interoperability

Business Integration Perspective

For Enterprise Agility and Interoperability

Today’s business information management environment has matured and reached a point where the obvious easy process gains have been already extracted and routinely proven.  What are left are deeper more fundamental infrastructure problems that are residual from and symptomatic of solving problems with largely hands-on bottom-up techniques that are inward facing.  This particularly applies to medium to large enterprises and their collaboration partners.

Applying BCM Event Template

to Financial Management

Applying BCM Event Template

This whitepaper introduces the application of the OASIS Business-Centric Methodology (BCM) Event Template for use within the financial management domain. BCM is a roadmap which can be used for new development, providing guidance in defining requirements for the procurement and deployment of information solutions and products. This includes techniques for providing the interface structure that extends legacy applications and services.  The BCM Event Template is used to capture information concerning any activity that management wants to plan, control, or evaluate. The methodology promotes the 'Event' as a critical metadata artifact which makes loosely-coupled interoperability solutions possible. The Event Templates can be used in portfolio management to determine redundancy and standards publishing opportunities. 

Agile Solutions Requires Developing for 'Choice'

Enterprise Transformation

Agile Solutions Requires Developing for 'Choice'

It is recognized that the transformation will require a thoroughly defined strategy, but to also transform the organization and its practices to be more agile and particularly able to respond rapidly to changes and requests to fulfill unforeseen new events and drivers.   It is obvious that such a strategy is useless without changing the enterprise to be more adaptive.  This paper starts with the applicability of these efforts sharing lessons-learned that are applicable to many organizations that are transforming themselves to be agile.  Then wider needs are covered including: how to be more customer responsive, being proactive rather than reactive, and addressing new business requirements with declining budgets.  The same set of principles given here applies for all information systems that offer diffused and distributed content that is difficult to manage, coordinate, and evolve.

Becoming NetCentric

Leveraging an Information Network with Communities of Interests, Architectures, and Ontologies

Becoming NetCentric

Every organization no matter how large or small needs to perform information asset management.  Especially for large enterprises today moving their existing approach to the next level is now a necessity not a luxury due to the challenges and complexities of today's networked and linked world. To attain this next level they need to learn to be opportunistic with their information. Therefore organizations need to take a closer look at how to foster communication amongst users, and particularly by promoting the clustering of context-based communities or Communities of Interests (CoIs).   Network theory[1] has shown that collectively these CoIs are a critical enabling information network topology, and they should reach beyond the scope of the organization to also include partners and stakeholders.
