Following the successful conclusion of the second GSIM Spri= nt, the High-Level Group for Strategic Developments in Business Architectur= e in Statistics authorised the release of version 0.4 of the GSIM documents= for public consultation.
Please feel free to send a link to this page to anyone that you think mi= ght be interested.
Documentation of GSIM has been layered to address the needs of different= audiences, from general readers who want a broad understanding of GSIM to = developers who want to ensure an implementation they are developing is full= y consistent with the GSIM Reference Framework.
The documentation consists of 3 Layers.
1. GSIM: Overview- The layer consists of a document that contains general information = about the scope and purpose of GSIM, why it is needed, the expected benefit= s, as well as an introduction to the structure and content of the model. Th= is document is aimed at top managers. The Overview Layer also helps other r= eaders (e.g. target audiences beyond statistical agencies) understand wheth= er GSIM is relevant for them and whether they should explore the other laye= rs. (This document was released as part of GSIM v0.4)
2. GSIM: Communication= strong> - This layer is aimed at subject matter statisticians, methodologis= ts, process designers, business architects etc. It consists of one main pap= er with a number of annexes. It provides more detailed information about th= e information represented in GSIM (including definitions and diagrams of lo= wer level objects), descriptions of how the model could be used and use cas= es and descriptions of relationships to other models and standards. (This document was released as part of GSIM v0.4)
3. GSIM: Specification - This layer is aimed at metadata specia= lists, information architects and solutions architects. This document will = be drafted as part of the next iteration of development and will include: d= efinitions, attributes and relationships for each information object in GSI= M; detailed mappings of the information objects to SDMX and DDI; technical = implementation guidelines and UML diagrams. (This document will be = part of future GSIM releases)
