Brandt Redd proposes a great framework for data standards

2011-08-10 Four Layer Framework for Data Standards

Wanted to pass along this simple 1-page framework for data standards that my colleague BrandtRedd just released under CC-By.  Given fuzzy language and confusion circulating in this space within verticals like Healthcare and Education thought it might help clarify the stack that is standards.  stevemidgley has proposed – correctly in our view – that you could probably unpack the 4th layer – Protocol into a few layers of its own.

Brandt – take that as a request for v2 🙂  Thanks to you and Sally Askman for this contribution to the discussion.
