Huawei | June 16, 2020
The United States on Monday confirmed a Reuters report that it will amend its prohibitions on U.S. companies doing business with China’s Huawei to allow them to work together on setting standards for next-generation 5G networks. The U.S. Commerce Department and other agencies signed off on the rule change, which is awaiting publication in the Federal Register, Reuters reported, citing people familiar with the matter. The rule was sent to the Federal Register on Friday and is set to be published as early as Tuesday.
U.S. commercial remote sensing | July 20, 2020
The federal government will soon allow U.S. commercial remote sensing companies to sell high-resolution satellite images of Israel, changing resolution limits that have been in place for more than two decades. In a draft of a Federal Register notice obtained by SpaceNews, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), which hosts the office that licenses U.S. commercial remote sensing satellite systems, says it will reduce the resolution limit on satellite imagery of Israel from 2 meters to 0.4 meters. It is also available as an “unpublished notice” available for public inspection on the Federal Register website, with a note that it is scheduled for formal publication July 21.
The Open Group | November 24, 2020
Today, The Open Group, the seller unbiased innovation consortium, and the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), the United Nations office for data and correspondence advancements (ICTs), reported a joint effort to quicken public assistance development and change for better resident results and ideal use of ICT foundation.
By cooperating, The Open Group and ITU will intend to advance, guide, and assemble abilities for digital government strategies and resident driven Enterprise Architecture (EA) over the globe.
“Never before have digital public services had such a profound impact on the lives of citizens around the world,” said ITU Secretary-General, Houlin Zhao. “With this partnership with The Open Group, ITU is redoubling its efforts to help governments everywhere accelerate the deployment and scaling up of impactful citizen-centric digital solutions in support of economic recovery and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).”
With the important direction and materials, asset compelled nations will be better positioned to change over digital strategies into implementable enormous scope frameworks. Thusly, the vital partnership among ITU and The Open Group will fill the hole between digital speculations and best practice engineering approaches for the accomplishment of the SDGs.
Doreen Bogdan-Martin, Director of the Telecommunication Development Bureau (BDT) of ITU stated: "The utilization of digital arrangements and innovations to upscale digital public administrations is crucial for supporting the reaction to, and recuperation from, the COVID-19 pandemic. With regards to planning, executing, and turning out digital public administrations at scale, embracing building approaches is critical. EA permits governments to address the issues of areas with differing prerequisites, while simultaneously encourage the authoritative change measure and the modernization of government administrations overall. Close by The Open Group, we can make the instruments and direction required for nations to put an EA approach vigorously."
The work embraced as a feature of the coordinated effort will be executed by The Open Group Government EA Work Group. The Work Group will develop measures that empower consistent data stream across different government environments, making existing EA assets – including guides, structures, use cases, and philosophies – simpler to utilize and accessible to all. Through giving admittance to these assets, both The Open Group and ITU will assist governments with building the abilities expected to execute design approaches at scale, in light of their nation explicit necessities.
Steve Nunn, President and CEO of The Open Group, commented: “The Open Group is proud to collaborate with ITU to transform digital public services and, ultimately, enhance the experience for millions of citizens across the globe. It is evident that the countries able to yield the best outcomes from digital investments are those that have created and adopted a fit-for-purpose digital government EA. This is why, together with ITU, we will strive to democratize the use of methodologies and tools required to establish future-proofed digital architectures and infrastructures, particularly for countries with limited resources.”
