The Interoperability Governance viewpoint is a viewpoint of the European Interoperability Reference Architecture. It models the most salient Architecture Building Blocks that refer to decisions on interoperability frameworks, institutional arrangements, organisational structures, roles and responsibilities, policies, agreements and other aspects of ensuring and monitoring interoperability at national and EU levels. As such, it does not include operational Architecture Building Blocks like interoperability agreements.
The EIRA Interoperability Governance viewpoint

Narrative
The selected Architecture Building Blocks from the five different views highlight the Architecture Building Blocks of the EIRA© that are related to Interoperability Governance:

  1. The selected Architecture Building Blocks of the legal view show that a [ Public policy ] is associated with a [ Public Policy Cycle ] where it is created and governed. An [Operational enabler], influenced by a [Public Policy Implementation Mandate] and a [Public Policy Approach], is a specialisation of a [Public Policy and Implementation Instrument], which realises a [Public Policy]. [ Public Policy Implementation Approach ] supports the implementation of [Public Policy].
  2. The selected Architecture Building Blocks of the organisational view show that the [Public Policy] influences an [Organisational Policy] which is a specialisation of an [Organisational Interoperability Enabler]. The [Security and Privacy Policy] is a specialisation of an [Organisational Policy]. [Security Framework] is influenced and is influenced by [Interoperability Framework], which influences [Interoperability Governance], influences and is influenced by [Privacy Framework].
  3. The selected Architecture Building Blocks of the semantic view shows that [ Data Policy ], which is that mainspring of the solution.are specialisations of [Organisational Policies].
  4. The selected Architecture Building Blocks of the technical view show that a [ Configuration and Solution Cartography Service Component ] realises a [ Configuration and Solution Cartography Service ]. An [Operational procedure] defines a process for operating a solution and [Configuration Management] is used in order to manage the technology stack of an organization.
  5. The selected Architecture Building Blocks of the EIF Underlying Principle view show that [ Interoperability Specifications ] realise [ Interoperability Principles ], the general intended properties used to achieve interoperability. The interoperability Specifications can be used to define the interoperability aspects for any of the Architecture Building Blocks.
