The European ATM Architecture Framework (EATMA) and European ATM Portal (eATM portal) that Knowledge Agency has helped develop is recognised by major stakeholders to be an instrumental part in the modernising of Europe’s Air Traffic Management.
The framework enables projects to collaborate with other projects and input their solution data, develop modelling operational scenarios and customise dashboards allowing experts to follow progress on solutions. The entire information is shared throughout the programme via the eATM web portal which is fed with data from the underlying architecture repository.
“It is very encouraging to see that the efforts spent on developing and implementing the framework in the SESAR programme is generating such great value to the programme and the ATM stakeholders. We are very proud to be one of the contributors in this massive-scale architecture effort and look forward to continue our collaboration with EUROCONTROL and the other SESAR partners throughout the SESAR 2020 programme and further.” says Niklas Häggström, Senior Consultant and Partner at Knowledge Agency.

The Swedish Association of Local Authorities and Regions (Sveriges Kommuner och Landsting), has acquired Inera AB to strengthen and accelerate the digitalisation in the local authorities and regions. Utilising Ineras long experience in providing e-health related services at a national level, the intention is to further expand to regions and local authorities and other domains such as social care and education.
One of the key enablers for this digital transformation is the Architecture function at Inera as it provides guidelines and facilitates collaboration between the actors, including regions, local authorities, private actors and citizens.
Knowledge Agency has been contracted to support Inera in developing and implementing the next generation architecture framework and act as mentors to architects in the various organisations. The framework includes a description of the digital ecosystem, processes and methods for architecture development, architecture description guideline etc. Architectures encompass reference and target architectures that range from strategic business architecture to architectures of technical platforms and services for information exchange.
Knowledge Agency has been contracted by Vinnova, Sweden’s government agency for innovation, to assess and evaluate a novel concept for an ontology based information management platform. The concept introduces a way to manage knowledge in an ontological format which is linked to actual data. This allows efficient discovery of data and provides the ability to anonymise it and for a data owner to control who has access to the data, irrespectively of where it is stored. The objective is to determine whether the concept can be applied at a national or even global level, starting from a practical example application in the medicine informatics area.
The contract with Dometic has been extended for Knowledge Agency to provide support to the establishment of an Enterprise Architecture (EA) function in the company. Knowledge Agency will act as interim lead Enterprise Architect with responsibility of developing the EA practice, and to support the CIOs at group and regional levels as well as strategic projects to accelerate the digital transformation that the company is performing.
Knowledge Agency will present at the Royal Aeronautical Society Conference – Modelling & Simulation in Air Traffic Management. The Conference is held in London November 14-15, 2017. Knowledge Agency will be giving a presentation entitled “Simulated SWIM services in ATM”. Other speakers represents organisations such as NASA, MITRE, FAA and EUROCONTROL.
Knowledge Agency signs new a contract to support mobile living products manufacturer Dometic in their IT Architecture Review Board. Dometic is rapidly transforming their business and IT landscape, including implementation of a new global ERP System which requires expert support in the areas of Enterprise and IT-Architecture.
Knowledge Agency has, in cooperation with Clever Collaboration Group Europe (CCG), been awarded the University of applied Science in Mölnlycke (Yrkeshögskolan Mölnlycke) public procurement “Developer/Coordinator for Information Security”, an Information Management education at University level.
