Fifth Quarterly Emerging Technology Components Conference, October 25, 2004, at The MITRE Corporation, McLean, Virginia, MITRE-1 Building Auditorium, 7515 Colshire Drive McLean, VA 22102-7508    (3U3)

Title: Technology Transfer, Innovation and IT Governance: Best Practices for Value-Driven, Component-Based Enterprise Architecture    (3VC)

Purpose:    (3V6)

To learn how to organize across national, regional, and local technology transfer and innovation programs in order to rapidly advance component-based best practices for value-driven, as opposed to compliance-driven, enterprise architecture.    (3V3)

A key finding of the past year, is the need to apply emerging technologies (web services, grid computing, and semantic web) to tune up the innovation pipeline with better linkages among business incubators (state economic development programs), innovation diffusion networks (SBIR, angel investors, etc.) and business intelligence centers with quality information about e-government and e-commerce gaps. Many of the agile business components surfacing in innovative settings are not easily discovered by e-government managers, resulting in lost or delayed opportunities for both parties.    (2QU3)

Key Questions:    (3V7)

  1. Why does the chief enterprise architect for General Motors report to the CEO of General Motors on how technology innovation will save General Motors money and grow its business instead of on the benefits of enterprise architecture?    (3V8)
  2. Why do CIOs prefer to promote value-driven, instead of compliance-driven, enterprise architecture within their organizations?    (3V9)
  3. How do enterprise information architects deliver the value (e.g. information integration, knowledge management systems, etc.) that could benefit the IT enterprise architects in their work?    (3V5)
  4. How can stakeholders to this purpose amplify their individual and collective effectiveness by collaborating together? Where are the intangible assets like "network effects" emerging to advance the whole purpose?    (43K)
  5. How could frontier outposts for Innovation Diffusion be among the first adopters of open, semantic technologies (like ontological standards or semantic web-services) that "distill" and "apply" the smart-data, -information and knowledge needed by both people and machines to solve complex problems within their work environments?    (4GY)
  6. How can the relationships, business processes, and tools needed by diverse people to augment their "collective intelligence" around technology transfer and innovation diffusion be designed to support and not hobble, people's natural forms of expertise?    (4GZ)
