StratML: Maturing Social
Networking Services for
Machine-Readable Government and the Strategic Semantic Business
Abstract for Owen Ambur's Presentation at the Strategic Planning Innovation Summit
StratML is an XML-based vocabulary and schema for the elements commonly contained in strategic and performance plans. It is an American national standard and may soon become an international standard. It is also being extended to meet additional data requirements specified for U.S. federal agencies by recent legislation modernizing the Government Performance and Results Act, which directs agencies to publish their plans and reports in machine-readable format. The speaker will explain why existing social networking services are immature for business-quality usage and highlight the potential power of the those services when combined with an open data standard like StratML to create the Strategic Semantic Business Web.
