Information Days

· Semantics & SOA Services Information Day (Healthcare event) – Wednesday, December 14
The purpose of the one-day forum will be to explore approaches and relevant specification work to help enable and leverage rich information semantics within and across systems or in use for the Semantic Web. Though the workshop is being sponsored by the Healthcare group, the information presented has equal applicability for multiple vertical domains. The sessions will explore how these fundamental building blocks have been constructed and present use-cases on how they can be leveraged. The event will feature presentations from representatives of Kaiser-Permanente, Healthcare Information Management Systems Society (HIMSS), Thematix Partners, LLC, Mayo Clinic, University of Utah Department of Biomedical Informatics, and National Center for Biomedical Ontology at Stanford University.

· Value Modeling Information Day: Business Model and Service Innovation Using Value Models – Wednesday, December 14
The emerging OMG standard VDML, Value Delivery Metamodel, provides a foundation for value modeling for different purposes, such as Business Model Innovation and Service Innovation and Design, as well as for organizational analysis and development of networked enterprises. VDML unifies different approaches for value modeling, including value networks, value chains and value streams, Resource-Event-Agent analysis models, business models and service models.

The Information Day will give a practical introduction to VDML, illustrated through a common example, explained from the various perspectives of VDML. The focus will be on a practical approach for Business Model Innovation using collaboration models and value models based on VDML as a foundation. Practical examples of Value Network Analysis, Business Model Innovation and Service Innovation will be illustrated.
