Who created MIKE2.0?

The Data Governance and Management Consortium has now released to the Open Source community. Any extensions beyond the initial Baseline Release are the wider community.

Why should I become a registered user of the MIKE2.0 Methodology?

Only registered members can add content to the methodology and we want to encourage feedback as much as possible. By adding to MIKE2.0, you have the opportunity to directly ask questions, suggest changes and create your own content. In addition, we hope that many of our users will become active members within the Consortium and take on more senior roles.

If I don’t register am I still bound by the terms of the license?

Why are some pages in MIKE2.0 Protected?

As MIKE2.0 is a methodology, there needs to be some stability with the core content that can only be achieved by releasing content in a controlled fashion and by protecting content.

We believe are our current model provides us with this flexibility; the approach is explained in more detail in the Release Methodology.
