Session B

11:00 AM - 12:30 PM NIEM Maturity Drives Information Exchange Capabilities into 2017

Kamran Atri, Chief Technology Officer/ Co-Chair, NIEM Business Architecture Committee (NBAC), Constellation Software Engineering/NIEM
The National Information Exchange Model (NIEM) Program supports information exchange across a wide array of operational domains
that impact Homeland Security, including Biometrics, Emergency Management, Military Operations, Screening, Justice and more.
In this workshop we will provide an overview of how the NIEM program is maturing and how it can help your organization with enhanced
information sharing tools and data models capable of linking the most diverse of organizations and systems across both public and
private sectors.
· NIEM 4.0 Development and Release
· Case Study: Harmonization of cross-agency biometrics exchange protocols via NIEM (DHS IXM vs DoD EBTS vs DoJ EBTS) is the
cornerstone of the harmonization effort across the NIEM Biometrics community of interest.
· Driving Non-traditional stakeholder Agency-to-Agency (Org-to-Org) exchange via domain and cross-domain communication
· Internationalization is fast becoming one of the most important aspect of public sector consideration.
