SEARCH is pleased to announce the release of version 4.1 of JIEM®, the Justice Information Exchange Model, on August 22, 2008.

The new version includes several major enhancements that extend the capabilities of the tool. The most significant change is the addition of a new Information Dimension editor, which makes it easier for users to document data requirements and to integrate with the National Information Exchange Model (NIEM). Users can now identify services in alignment with the Global Justice Reference Architecture (JRA), and can capture performance measures and privacy requirements for exchanges. The new version also implements several usability enhancements suggested by the JIEM® user community.

"This new release continues our efforts, through the Bureau of Justice Assistance's sponsorship, to align JIEM® with all the good work going on in the Global and NIEM initiatives," said SEARCH Systems and Technology Director Scott M. Came. "Our goal is to make it easier for JIEM® users to incorporate these standards and guidelines as they plan their information sharing initiatives, since it is important to think about correct data semantics, services, privacy, and performance measures as early as possible in the project."

All current JIEM® 4.0 users can request the new version by email at jiem@search.org.
