  • Publication number: 20130269035
    Abstract: A computer hardware-implemented method, system, and/or computer program product determines an applicability of a data privacy regulation when transmitting data used with an enterprise project. A data privacy regulation describes regulatory restrictions on data being transmitted from a first geopolitical entity to a second geopolitical entity. A set of categorized data is used by an enterprise project, and the data privacy regulation establishes limitations on a transmission of at least one category of data, from the set of categorized data, from the first geopolitical entity to the second geopolitical entity. A first set of binary data and a second set of binary data are processed to determine if transmission of said at least one category of data from the first geopolitical entity to the second geopolitical entity is regulated by the data privacy regulation.

  • Patent number: 8055775
    Abstract: Methods, including service methods, articles of manufacture, systems, articles and programmable devices provide a policy engine framework. A consumer policy request for a web service is mediated through a functional web service or a policy web service. A single unified method call is made to policy adapters in response to the mediated customer request, each of the policy adapters in communication with a policy server. The policy adapters transform the single unified method call into formats acceptable by each associated policy servers and place the transformed requests to the associated servers. Results from the policy servers are formatted by policy adapters and a policy is selected from a policy registry repository as a function of the formatted results and returned to a requesting consumer.

  • Publication number: 20110106575
    Abstract: In general, the present invention provides a technique for IT estimation modeling of any organization. Although this estimation model is applied to SOA herein, it is not limited to solely estimating SOA activities; the maturity-based estimation modeling can be applied to other areas and disciplines, even beyond the IT industry. The maturity-based model of the present invention also offers executives and project managers a very effective estimating tool to analyze the impact of project variances. Resources do not need to be taken off projects and assigned to perform estimations, as this model acquires knowledge over time and delivers ever more precise estimates with each successive project. Executives and project managers may analyze the effects of additional staff, function changes, or other events to an overall project. Additionally, new projects may be estimated without utilizing current personnel with this adaptive learning model.

  • Patent number: 7890530
    Abstract: A method and system for controlling access to data via a data-centric security model. A business data classification scheme is defined as a hierarchy that includes data types aligned with business operations. A data element is labeled with a data label. The data label includes multiple attributes associated with a data-centric security model. A first attribute is a data type of the data element. A second attribute includes security requirements. Data control rules are automatically generated for an enforcement of the security requirements. The enforcement grants or denies to a user an access to the data element via a predefined action. The enforcement is based on a predefined association among the predefined action, a predefined role that includes the user, the data type and, optionally, a purpose for performing the predefined action.
