The concept of the “smart city” is beginning to be adopted by cities and municipalities worldwide. By providing “smart,” digital services, cities will, ostensibly, become more attractive places to live, offering better living conditions to citizens.
The Open Group Exploration, Mining, Metals & Minerals Vertical (EMMM™) Forum is a global, vendor-neutral environment where members create Enterprise Architecture standards and reference models for the these industries. The aim of the EMMM Forum is to realize sustainable business value through collaboration around a common operating model, and to support vendors in their delivery of technical and business solutions. The EMMM™ Process Framework shows the first step in the Mining Process is to DISCOVER a new deposit, from which a mine can be ESTABLISHED, the ore and waste EXPLOITED and the valuable material BENEFICIATED, so that the SELL process can be completed, to generate income to ensure the sustainability of the operation. Throughout these processes, the exposed area will be REHABILITATED.
Its focus will be on how an architecture framework such as TOGAF®, an Open Group standard, can help administrations govern the introduction of smart systems to enable their citizens and businesses to thrive and prosper.
The Open Group TOGAF® User Group meeting, held in San Francisco on January 30, 2017, focused on “Create vs. Reuse Architectures.” It addressed the question of whether Enterprise Architects need to be more involved in reusing existing architecture models than in creating new ones to meet their needs.
