The National Information Exchange Model considers itself to be a data dictionary. NIEM says it uses agreed-upon terms, definitions, relationships, and formats to help all 50 states and most federal agencies adopt a standards-based approach to exchanging data. The Department of Homeland Security just released NIEM 3.2. Program director Donna Roy discussed NIEM’s future with Francis at ACT-IAC’s Executive Leadership Conference in Williamsburg, Va.
