Data Interoperability Community of Interest Handbook

The Data Interoperability Community of Interest (COI) Handbook is a critical element for achieving enterprise-wide data interoperability. This book defines data interoperability, provides the compelling business case, and defines the measures of success.

This book provides the organization engineering, policies, procedures, and rules that have engineered and governed successful COIs.

This book also sets out the enterprise organizations that can create and manage COIs within an enterprise, and an enterprise organization.

The Return on Investment for the Community of Interest Approach is compelling. It's 50% cheaper than the stove-pipe interface approach for 10 shared data members, and it's 90% cheaper to thereafter add one more member.

The book is engineered as a day-to-day operational handbook. The book can just be adopted at the start of a COI activity. Simply put, it's the COI's policies and procedures. It addresses the COI's Missions, Functions, Organizations, Positions, Duties and Responsibilities, Products, Costs, Activities, and Rules. No topic has been ignored because this book was derived from the operational policies and procedures from the three most successful COIs that exist today.

This book is now in its 2nd Edition, and now contains problems and exercises at the end of every chapter. It also contains a highly engineered work plan and cost model for executing an COI. This COI cost model is set against a traditional Stove Pipe work plan and Cost Model. Comparing the two shows the COI approach 50% of the cost of the Stove Pipe approach for a community of 10 domains. Further the COI approach is just about 10% of the cost of the Stove Pipe approach when adding an 11th domain. There is only win-win with the COI approach. There is only loss-loss with the Stove Pipe approach. Check out the Return on Investment link at the end of this page.
