Interoperability scenarios

These four interoperability scenarios are based on the challenges that businesses often encounter. They are intended as an instructional resource for your agency and can be used with the interoperability development phases.

You can rearrange the order of scenario steps, replace them with other actions, omit them or operate them in parallel. Use the scenarios as a guide to plan your own workflows with the skills and resources you have available.

How to use the scenarios

We've structured the scenarios around the interoperability development phases with links to each relevant phase.

Scenario 1 – Streamline Business Processes

  • Access your data more quickly using tools and technologies to streamline data access methods via data integration and handling.

Scenario 2 – Legacy Data Migration

  • Migrate your old data located in legacy systems that hampers fast and efficient data analysis. Overcome this hurdle with an initial data assessment, followed by data migration.

Scenario 3 – Data Exchange with Stakeholder

  • Meet your users' needs by improving data exchange for your external clients with standardised exchange methods. User research will clarify their needs and help identify the tools and technologies that enable secure, standardised 'self-serve' data exchange.

Scenario 4 – Data Publication and Exchange

  • Find data quickly by using metadata standards to make information about data (its metadata) easier to find. This process includes metadata architecture, and uses tools and technologies to support good metadata management.
