NIEMOpen Publication Process v1.0 released by NIEMOpen OP

First Project Note published by NIEMOpen Open Project

OASIS is pleased to announce publication of “NIEMOpen Publication Process Version 1.0,” a Project Note from the members of the OASIS NIEMOpen Open Project (OP) [1].

NIEM, formerly known as the “National Information Exchange Model,” is a framework for exchanging information between public and private sector organizations. The framework includes a reference data model for objects, properties, and relationships as well as a set of technical specifications for using and extending the data model in information exchanges. NIEM promotes scalability and reusability of messages between information systems which allows organizations to share data and information more efficiently.

This document describes the terminology, deliverables, versioning, stages and processes involved in publishing a NIEMOpen version, including the model, specifications and tools.
