INCITS Seeks Additional US Experts for INCITS/BigData, US TAG to JTC 1/WG 9 on Big Data
The InterNational Committee for Information Technology Standards (INCITS) is coordinating US efforts to ISO/IEC JTC 1/WG 9 on Big Data and seeks additional US experts to join the US TAG or mirror committee, INCITS/BigData.
JTC 1 published a preliminary report on the emerging area of Big Data in 2014.
Program of Work - JTC 1/WG 9 on Big Data was established at the November 2014 JTC 1 Plenary with the following terms of reference:
- Serve as the focus of and proponent for JTC 1's Big Data standardization program.
- Develop foundational standards for Big Data ---including reference architecture and vocabulary standards---for guiding Big Data efforts throughout JTC 1 upon which other standards can be developed.
- Develop other Big Data standards that build on the foundational standards when relevant JTC 1 subgroups that could address these standards do not exist or are unable to develop them.
- Identify gaps in Big Data standardization.
- Develop and maintain liaisons with all relevant JTC 1 entities as well as with any other JTC 1 subgroup that may propose work related to Big Data in the future.
- Identify JTC 1 (and other organization) entities that are developing standards and related material that contribute to Big Data, and where appropriate, investigate ongoing and potential new work that contributes to Big Data.
- Engage with the community outside of JTC 1 to grow the awareness of and encourage engagement in JTC 1 Big Data standardization efforts within JTC 1, forming liaisons as is needed.
