2008 Government Technology Research Alliance (GTRA) Enterprise Architecture Conference Speakers: Ms. Jain and Mr. Primetica presented a "Service-Oriented Approach to developing Segment Architectures in the Federal Government". Our approach is business driven and focused on identifying business services that are common within a segment, based upon a demand and supply framework. These common services are then used for developing information technology solutions to be implemented across the offices/organizations impacted by that segment.
Service Oriented Architecture (SOA): Developed a practical, business oriented approach to SOA that includes a step-by-step guide to identifying and deploying reusable services. eGlobalTech successfully implemented this approach at the Department of Education, resulting in the identification of fourteen (14) common services and successfully establishing the Department’s Enterprise Data Warehouse. This SOA-based investment resulted significant cost-savings and the launch of the Department’s first shared service, encompassing more than 20 end-user organizations.
Enterprise Architecture (EA) Development: eGlobalTech developed an intuitive template that captures EA driven information at each level: Business, Service Component, Data, Technology, and Performance. This template (1) captures all required information in a standardized format (2) established a direct relationship, or line-of-sight, between each architecture level (3) allows for analysis in order to define Department-wide opportunities for consolidation, service reuse, and/or modernization. This template was cited as a best practice by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) on www.core.gov and has been used to develop two of the Top 4 Federal Enterprise Architectures (the Department of Labor and the Department of Education).
IT Infrastructure Segment Architecture Development: eGlobalTech advised the Federal IT Infrastructure Program Management Office on the initiative’s strategic direction, which includes a methodology to capture Federal -wide IT Infrastructure data and to identify common services that can leverages across the Government.
Performance Metric Development Methodology: Published a methodology for use by federal agencies in developing effective and results-oriented IT investment performance metrics. This methodology ties performance to all pertinent IT investment areas, including business requirements/objectives and technology. This methodology was published in the Journal of Enterprise Architecture and has been used to measure the performance of major IT initiatives throughout the Federal Government.
IPv6 Workgroup: eGlobalTech is leading a collaborative effort to develop the Federal IPv6 Transition Guide. This guide provides a roadmap for federal Chief Information Officers and other key decision-makers for achieving full IPv6 capability to ensure business continuity in light of an anticipated future IPv4 address depletion. Additionally, eGlobalTech developed a framework for using Enterprise Architecture and CPIC Programs to facilitate the federal IPv6 transition.
Potomac Forum: Ms. Sonya Jain taught the “Introduction to Enterprise Architecture” 2-day course as part of the Potomac Forum program at the Ronald Reagan Center. This course was focused on introducing the EA concepts.
IAC EA SIG - Health-care Information Sharing: Ms. Sonya Jain is a member of the “Leadership Team” of the Enterprise Architecture Shared Interest Group( EA SIG) within the Industry Advisory Council. As part of this Group, she has led several efforts including the Collaboration Workgroup, and more recently, the Health-care Information Sharing Workgroup. The recommendations made by the Health-care Information Sharing Workgroup have been used by HHS’s leadership to develop their strategic direction for enabling information sharing across the health-care sector. The workgroup also identified challenges and successes of information sharing and highlighted both best practices as well as bottlenecks.
AFFIRM Sponsorship - eGlobalTech sponsors the Association for Federal Information Resource Management (AFFIRM) which is a non-profit, volunteer, educational organization whose goal is to improve the management of information within the Federal Government. eGloablTech interests in this organization go beyond the Federal arena, to the student community, as AFFIRM has a program that provides scholarships to undergraduate students studying IT or a related field in 6 Universities.
