AESOP aims to develop a coherent architectural approach to change management and to the configuration of services and systems to support and faciltiate the transformation of public agencies into Smart Organisations. This will support a flexible approach to the allocation of shared and dedicated resources and provide the means for horizontal and vertical integration of value chains through brokerage and intermediation mechanisms with three pilots in Regional Chambers of Commerce.
Phase 1 is concerned with establishing pilot baselines and in selecting and assembling the initial technical platform.
In the second phase, the three Chambers contexts will pursue different aspects of the brokerage environment.
These will include:
- Information management, catalogues, profiles and content;
- Transactions and case management which is distributed in time and across organisational boundaries;
- Service management and the relationship between operational information and vertical reporting.
In each case, a cycle of refining the baseline, organisational modelling and requirements exploration will mesh with a process of populating and evaluating an evolving delivery system.
Generic models and demonstrations of the brokerage environment will also be produced and examined on an Europe wide context through validation workshops organised by an agency which represents Chambers across Europe.
In the third phase, the three strands will be integrated into more complete implementation at each of the three user sites and demonstrations to a wider audience will be undertaken through the Eurochambers agency.
