Use Case Implementation Guide
The value potential of a data sharing use case for both a wide range of organisations and society can only be realised if a use case is implemented. After completing the exploration phase using the Use Case Playbook and the design phase using the Use Case Blueprint, the third phase of our use case development approach is the implementation phase.
The Use Case Implementation Guide is a tool that provides you with detailed requirements on how agreements should be implemented to achieve a use case pilot. It focusses on a common data sharing use case archetype, one where data is shared between a data provider and a data consumer, based on approval provided by the data owner. It provides a basis for requirements for the functional and technical implementation of your data sharing use case. Examples are requirements of how APIs should be set up, including identification, authentication and authorisation, security, and technical elements. The Use Case Implementation Guide is based on open standards and aligned with existing data sharing standards (iSHARE, International Data Spaces Association) and implementations where applicable and relevant.
You can apply the Use Case Implementation Guide in four steps:
- Determine the data sharing use case archetype of your use case and analyse overlap with the archetype considered in the Use Case Implementation Guide.
- Determine how various elements of the Use Case Implementation Guide can be applied in your use case by understanding the interaction model in detail.
- Reuse relevant elements of the Use Case Implementation Guide to ensure interoperability (and potentially scalability) for your data sharing use case.
- Analyse the considerations for scalability to determine if any apply to your use case.
