CAMSS provides a comprehensive method to assist the assessment of ICT standards and specifications. CAMSS provides a method, it does not itself select standards. The CAMSS method aims to achieve interoperability and avoiding vendor lock-ins. CAMSS criteria evaluate (among other things) the openness of standards and specifications.

The CAMSS Ontology is a formal description of knowledge as a set of concepts within the CAMSS domain and the axioms connecting its concepts and allowing for logic inferences

The Core Assessment Vocabulary represents and defines what an “Assessment” of “assets” is and how to perform the assessment based on “Criteria”. It is a domain-agnostic vocabulary, meaning that it can be used to assess any type of assets

Core Vocabularies are simplified, re-usable and extensible data models that capture the fundamental characteristics of an entity in a context-neutral fashion. Public administrations can use and extend the Core Vocabularies in the following contexts: 1) Development of new systems, 2) Information exchange between systems, 3) Data integration, 4) Open data publishing.

CSSV is the vocabulary used for the information exchange related to standards and specifications amongst software solutions, as well as, it is the key element for the development of the new release of the EIRA Library of Interoperability Specifications (ELIS)

The new European Interoperability Framework (EIF) is part of the Communication (COM(2017)134) from the European Commission adopted on 23 March 2017. The framework gives specific guidance on how to set up interoperable digital public services.

EIRA is an architecture content metamodel defining the most salient architectural building blocks (ABBs) needed to build interoperable eGovernment systems. The EIRA provides a common terminology that can be used by people working for public administrations in various architecture and system development tasks.

The EIRA Library of Interoperability Specifications is a library containing the standards and specifications defining the interoperability requirements of the architectural building blocks (ABBs) contained in the European Interoperability Reference Architecture (EIRA). The aim of this library is supporting solutions architects when modelling using EIRA.

The EIF Toolbox is designed as a guidance for national public administrations to equip them with the tools necessary to align their National Interoperability Frameworks (NIFs) with the 

An advisory expert group on all matters related to European ICT standardisation.

A European public service comprises any public sector service exposed to a cross-border dimension and supplied by public administrations in Europe, either to one another or to businesses and citizens in the European Union.

Interoperability is a key factor in making a digital transformation possible. It allows administrative entities to electronically exchange meaningful information in ways that are understood by all parties. It addresses all layers that impact the delivery of digital public services in the EU, including: legal, organisational, semantic and technical aspects.

The ISA² Programme supports the development of digital solutions that enable public administrations, businesses and citizens in Europe to benefit from interoperable cross-border and cross-sector public services.

M

An advisory expert group on all matters related to European ICT standardisation.

 

The European Multi Stakeholder Platform on ICT standardisation was set up at the end of 2011. Based on a European Commission Decision to advise on matters related to the implementation of ICT standardisation policies, it deals with:

The NIFO is an observatory where the latest Interoperability Initiatives at national levels from across Europe are discussed, shaped and published. The NIFO community is a dedicated space for sharing experience and best practices on policies, systems, challenges and successes related to interoperability.
