Network Delivery & Development IAM COTS

Strategy & Planning
Enterprise Architecture
COTS-based modules for:
1) Network Delivery & Development
2) Traffic Management
• Based on Pitney Bowes Insight
“Confirm” COTS package.
• Supports multiple application
modules including:
• Whole-Life Costs
• Scheduled Road Works
• Accident Records
• Delay Cost Model
• Not all in-scope for IAM
Network Delivery & Development
IAM COTS Example
Main candidates: Pitney Bowes Insight (Confirm), Exor, Symology.
TI2011+ Move towards COTS?
• e.g. ITIS Holdings - TrafficScience
INM - Move towards COTS
• CUTLAS is fully compliant
with UTMC specifications.
Integrates data from traffic
control, street asset and
other traffic/highway-related
Implements high
performance ENVITIA
MapLink command and
control to provide full GIS
UTMC-IAM Integration
Case Study: Oxfordshire County Council
Standards-based Integration
• Service-Oriented Architecture
• Enterprise Service Bus
• Incremental Deployment.
• Re-use of Legacy Systems
which still provide business
• Sweat assets instead of
wholesale “rip and replace”.
• Reduce costs.
Typical COTS Features
GIS User Interface
Support for leading Spatial Databases
Support for OGC standards – WMS, WFS, etc.
Flexible Web Services
OS MasterMap ITN support
Snap to OS MasterMap facility
Support for the Traffic Management Act (TMA)
Network Definition & Management with multiple linear referencing
Compliance/Integration with BS7666 – National Land & Property
• 2-way transmission of EToN Notices
• Spatial representation & Management of:
Link/Node Network structures
Street Gazetteer
Associated street data
UK PMS Defects & Treatments
Street works
Traffic pinch points
Import/Export and maintenance of NSG
Common Denominators
GIS User Interface
Spatial Data Infrastructure
Spatial database
Standard OGC Web Services
Modular design
Open interfaces
Multiple location referencing systems may
be overlaid with automatic translation from
one referencing system to another.
INSPIRE Network Transformation
Web Service
• INSPIRE requires
interoperability across
• Needs a standardsbased Public (external)
• Transformation services
allow organisations to
meet their legal
obligation whilst
ensuring continuity of
their existing business
• URNM was originally conceived against an
As-Is Architecture with 22+ siloed solutions.
The To-Be Architecture is converging on two
COTS-based Application Frameworks:
• ND&D: IAM (currently out to OJEU);
• TMD: Integrated Network Management is rolling
out Envitia’s Cutlas (UTMC) system.
• Each of these are converging on Open
standards such as OGC Web Services.
URNM is in danger of “Reinventing the
wheel” and breaking the EA Principle of “Reuse before buy before build”.
