MIKE2:Integrated Content Repository
From MIKE2.0 Methodology
-> You are here: MIKE2:Integrated Content Repository
The Integrated Content Repository brings together the open assets from the MIKE2.0 Methodology, shared assets available on the internet and private assets (held internally by organisations linked to MIKE2.0). The Integrated Content Repository is a virtual hub of assets that can be used by an Information Management community, some of which are publicly available and some of which are held privately.
Any organisation can follow the same approach as BearingPoint and integrate their internally held assets to the open standard provided by MIKE2.0 in order to:
The Integrated Content Repository is a true Enterprise 2.0 solution: it makes use of the collaborative, user-driven content built using Web 2.0 techniques and technologies on the MIKE2.0 site and incorporates it internally into the enterprise. The approach followed to build this repository is referred to as a mashup.
Information Management Asset Types
The MIKE2.0 architecture includes three types of Information Management (IM) Assets:
These assets are mapped together to form a common standard for Information Development.
Open Assets are provided through the MIKE2.0 Methodology. MIKE2.0 provides a method-based approach to Information Management (IM) best practices. Collectively, these assets and practices comprise the Information Development piece of the MIKE2.0 framework.
At a high level, MIKE2.0 aims
Everything classified as an Open Asset sits physically hosted on the open methodology wiki site. What's more, all assets are available under the creative commons license.
Content on the open site can be classified as either:
Core content provides the more stable aspects of the MIKE2.0 Methodology. This content only changes as part of a release cycle. This approach goes into effect once the beta period of the Baseline Release culminates. Non-core content is more dynamic in nature. Any contributor can change this at any time.
Shared Assets have been made available to the public. They are linked onto the Open Methodology site through common metadata. Shared Assets can take on a number of forms, including:
Shared Assets are divided into two categories, based on the extent to which they can be changed.
Shared-Open Assets have been made available to the public. They are linked onto the Open Methodology site through common metadata. These assets are open for other contributors to change; they may not be hosted on the open methodology site.
Examples of Shared-Open assets include:
Shared-Open Assets represent any publicly available content that contributors edit. Note two things with respect to these assets:
These assets are part and parcel to the MIKE2.0 approach. It should be noted that they will typically serve other purposes as well. What's more, the dynamic nature of some content must be considered--e.g. a page on Wikipedia changing. Keep this in mind when sourcing the material on the site.
Shared-Private Assets have been made available to the public. They are linked to the Open Methodology site through common metadata. Although they have been built in a collaborative form, the broader community cannot change these assets.
Examples of Shared-Private assets include:
Private Assets represent content held internally and not shared with the public. However, this content has been linked into the Open Methodology site through common metadata. It is "guarded IP" located behind the firewall. Direct access is limited to an internal group of users. Users of these private assets are under no obligation to make their private assets known, although they are encouraged to share content or its benefits with the open community. Anyone can map in their own assets to the open method. In other words, these assets do not need to emanate from a project that used the Open Methodology.
In addition to functional tags, content ideally should be Peer Reviewed and Maturity Rated. These activities should be performed using governance standards put forward as part of the open method
Information Management Asset Association
Information Assets are associated through the use of common metadata tags that are part of the MIKE2.0 Methodology. Listed below are the key mechanisms for linking open, client, shared, and private assets.
Articles in the wiki use a common set of categories to classify assets. Bookmarked articles use these common categories as tags.
Information Management Asset Repository
The MIKE2.0 Methodology provides the single Integrated Content Repository that is available from the open site. User communities can also have their private content repositories where they link into MIKE2.0 by applying Enterprise 2.0 techniques and technologies.
Any organisation can follow the same approach as BearingPoint and integrate their internally held assets to the open standard provided by MIKE2.0.
