OKI Regional ITS Plan – Regional ITS Architecture: Stakeholder Identification

Stakeholders

Identification and understanding the stakeholders and their associated systems is an important aspect of the OKI regional ITS architecture. This knowledge has helped identify the links between different agencies and ARTIMIS. In addition, this information can help stakeholders identify what type of information will be exchanged between agencies. Table B-2, provides a list of stakeholders and the systems they are responsible for as they relate to the OKI regional ITS architecture. Several agencies integrated in the OKI regional ITS architecture are specifically identified (e.g. Hamilton County 911/CAD center), while general descriptions (e.g. other city or county 911/CAD centers) serve as "placeholders" for agencies integrated into the architecture in the future.

There are six general "placeholder" descriptions that represent agencies or systems that may be integrated within the regional ITS Architecture. Although only one description for each type of agency is defined, in the future there may several integrated agencies that fall under the general "placeholder" description. For instance, the current regional architecture, which will be described in through detail later, has specifically defined that the 911/CAD centers located in the City of Cincinnati, Hamilton County and Boone County be included in the architecture. The 911/CAD centers of other nearby counties including but not limited to, Kenton County, Butler, or Warren Counties may also be included in the regional architecture in the future. Other city or county 911/CAD centers (the placeholder description) will represent other city or County 911 centers when integration takes place. The same general philosophy applies to the placeholder descriptions noted in Table B-2.
