INFORMATION LAYER
Meeting the Information Centric Principle
“open data & content information”
Requires the “Decoupling” of information from its presentation
 Describe data clearly
→ Sound taxonomy, making it searchable
→ Adequate meta data making it authoritative
 Preparing data for publications
→ Improve quality, accessibility, timeliness, and usability
→ Identify and high-value data and content
→ Evaluate for release to other agencies and the public
→ Make high-value data discrete and digestible
→ Assign metadata tags to high-value data
→ Embed security and privacy controls into structured data and metadata
 Expose machine-readable data to other computers (WEB APIs)
→ Publish high-value data and content timely
→ Make it easily acceptable for external use as applicable
→ Post it at agency.gov/developer in machine-readable format

IT shared services: commodity, support, and mission; which are delivered through cloud-based or
legacy infrastructure.*

PRESENTATION LAYER
Meeting the Customer Centric Principle
“anytime, anywhere, any device”
“Customers don’t know – and don’t care to know – how government is organized. So why make them go from
agency [website] to agency [website] to get the full picture of what gov’t has to offer on any subject?”*
 Customer Centric means that agencies:
→ Respond to customer needs
→ Make it easy to find and share information and accomplish important tasks.
 Digital services must be designed and delivered with:
→ Customer service first
→ Technologies used by customers, i.e. – today’s customers, today’s technologies
→ Content optimized for modern platforms, rather than just translating content from
paper-based documents to the Web
→ Agencies keeping current with the latest design concepts and refreshing delivery
mechanism to ensure the highest performance
 Identifying and optimizing top tasks, content, and transactions
 Optimizing for usability, search, and accessibility

SECURITY AND PRIVACY
Meeting the Security and Privacy Principles
“Cross-Agency Priority Goal: Cybersecurity”*
 Goal Statement: Executive branch departments and agencies will achieve 95%
implementation of the Administration’s priority cybersecurity capabilities by the end of
FY 2014
 Focus efforts on:
→ what data and information is entering and exiting their networks,
→ what components are on their information networks and when their security status changes,
and
→ who is on their systems.
 Administration Priorities for Meeting the Goals
→ Trusted Internet Connections (TIC) - Consolidate external Internet traffic and ensure a set of
common security capabilities for situational awareness and enhanced monitoring.
→ Continuous Monitoring of Federal Information Systems - Transform the historically static
security control assessment and authorization process into an integral part of a dynamic
enterprise-wide risk management process.
→ Strong Authentication – Ensure only authorized employees have access to Federal information
systems by requiring a higher level of assurance following the HSPD-12 Personal Identity
Verification standard

CLOUD COMPUTING
What and Why?
 Cloud computing is “a model for enabling convenient, on-demand network
access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources (e g , networks,
servers, storage, applications, and services) that can be rapidly provisioned and
released with minimal management effort or service provider interaction” *
 Cloud computing is shared services**
 Drivers:
→ Increased agility responding to workload fluctuations
→ Improved productivity in application development, application management,
network, and end-user**
→ Improved asset utilization**
→ Shift focus from asset ownership to service management**

or public)
infrastructures remain unique entities
Bound together by standardized or proprietary technology that enables data and application
portability
Resources may or may not exist on the premises of the cloud provider.
 Private Cloud –
→
→
→
Cloud infrastructure is provisioned for exclusive use by a single organization comprising multiple
consumers
Owned, managed, and operated by the organization, a third party, or some combination of them,
