Why CAM and NIEM?
“Can you give us a brief overview of how you expect IT
professionals and line of business managers to use
CAM*?”
– Van Ristau, CTO DLT Inc.
*CAM editor toolkit – http://www.cameditor.org and OASIS Content Assembly Mechanism standard – http://docs.oasis-open.org/cam

Response
• Line of business managers can use CAM to drive better
alignment to NIEM and faster more consistent delivery of
NIEM information exchanges enabling projects to be
performed more timely and predictably
• CAM provides tools that allow business analysts to work
collaboratively with software developers to build exchanges
• Teams use CAM to perform the 7 “D’s” tasks when
implementing NIEM exchanges
• CAM automates the delivery of key XML artifacts for NIEM
exchange services
• CAM can be deployed using the CAMV engine

OASIS CAM standard and approach
• CAM is about content assembly for information
exchanges using a visual XML paradigm with the
components managed in dictionary collections
• NIEM provides the basis for domain dictionaries and the
naming and design rules for creation of components
• NIEM aligns well with CAM because they share a
common heritage in core component standards work
• CAM is designed for standards based business
exchange development and simplifying that process
• CAM works for both top down new exchanges or bottom
up customizing and tailoring of existing exchanges

Design
• Create information exchange conceptual work flows
including the information exchanges needed to match
business process needs
• Determine conceptual information exchanges
• Understand security and information privacy needs
• Determine the information components for each
exchange
• Organize the components in each exchange structure
to an overall hierarchy to align with the business
process needs
• CAM provides visual editor for prototyping of exchange
structures along with Mind map modelling to allow
conceptual reviews
Copyright ©2011, Oracle. All rights reserved.

Discovery
• CAM provides a variety of tools to assist in discovery
of existing components from dictionary collections
• Automatic comparison tool between exchange and
dictionaries – creates mapping spreadsheet
• Search tools within dictionary interface
• Visual dictionary structure viewer
• Mind map models of dictionary components to allow further
visual inspection and analysis
Copyright ©2011, Oracle. All rights reserved.
Oracle Draft Materials – Limited Circulation
Develop
• Using the CAM exchange structure outlines complete
the actual exchange details
• Select actual components either from existing NIEM
dictionaries or from the enterprise dictionaries
• Create new components or extend existing components to
meet additional design needs
• Add validation rules for structure and content as needed by
the business process
• Build working exchanges using actual simulated data
with realistic XML instances
• Test each exchange to verify validation and operation
• Integrate the information exchange handling with the
business processes and applications

Document
• CAM generates NIEM IEPD documentation artifacts
including
• Business component usage report with rules and definitions
• Code list details and content checks
• UML physical models
• Mind map model of exchange structure and components
• Comparison mapping spreadsheets to NIEM dictionaries and
components
• NIEM “want list” XML for use with NIEM subset generator tool
• Example XML instances

Delimit
• This step includes building in deployment specific
details and rules and usage policy determinations
• Add additional XPath rules for local integration needs
• Constrain code lists to local use
• Limit and restrict content based on policy and role of exchange
partners
• Contextually exclude structure components based on rules
• Create other integration artifacts for middleware such as policy
control, partner certificates and security configuration
• Can configure these aspects through the CAM
template and using middleware tools

Oracle Draft Materials – Limited Circulation
Deploy
• Once structure information exchange is complete
need to test and verify it by generating realistic XML
examples
• Validate those against the exchange template
• Share working examples with exchange partners
• Share documentation (IEPD)
• Deploy with CAMV and distribute test suite module
• CAMV is Spring aware and supports Java API
• Tutorial and examples available

Dictionaries
CAM Toolkit provides suite of tools for dictionary handling
• Sets of NIEM domain dictionaries available
• Dictionaries can be grouped into collections
• Tools allow comparisons with existing dictionaries for
reuse analysis and mapping spreadsheet generation
• New dictionaries can be created by
• Harvesting existing schema collections
• Export and generation from Enterprise Data Models (ERwin)
• Automatic Renaming tool can be used to generate NIEM
consistent dictionary components for a domain
• Naming and Design evaluation tool provides alignment
to NIEM and interoperability reporting and spell checks
• Dictionaries can be viewed as spreadsheets or models

Developing domain dictionaries (EIEM)
• Allows domains to manage their components libraries
• Provides consistency for project development teams
• Sets of NIEM consistent XML exchange components
• Aligned to enterprise data stores
• Optimized for reuse and interoperability
• Save time and effort across the enterprise
• Perennial question for developers – when should I use NIEM
components, and when our own local ones?
• Are there components already available for that purpose?
• Provide formal mechanisms and procedures to share
components and collaborate through project lifecycle
• Provide external parties consistent data views
