In this webinar you will receive an overview of the NIEM Engagement Process and a live demonstration of the Cost Model. 

The NIEM Engagement Process was developed to meet the need for a structured framework to help organizations assess the value of applying NIEM to information sharing and exchange activities.  The NIEM Cost Model is a part of an overall NIEM Engagement Process that the NIEM Program Management Office (PMO) is developing. 

The National Information Exchange Model (NIEM) Cost Model is designed to quantify the inputs used for NIEM implementation within an organization.  It takes the NIEM Information Exchange Development Lifecycle, the processes that are associated with it, and relates associated costs. 

Each lifecycle phase has many variables, including but not limited to Level-of-Effort, complexity, type of resource and hourly costs.  The model provides flexibility to the user by allowing them to easily adjust the numerical values associated with each variable.  It can also be used as an estimator and baseline starting point during the budgeting and planning phase. 

In addition, the model takes into account the benefits that an organization could realize each time an exchange is implemented using NIEM (through re-use) and displays the output in an easily readable format for consumption.
