rel-e-vant Solutions has announced that Elizabeth Green, principal consultant, will chair a newly formed property standards committee for the Electronic Commerce Code Management Association (ECCMA). The group, dubbed the “ECCMA Property Team” or “eProp” for short, is responsible for soliciting and developing terminology to standardize how digital content about real property is represented in the ECCMA Open Technical Dictionary (eOTD) and to build and maintain domain specific data requirements and register these in the ECCMA Data Requirements Registry (eDRR). This effort includes the identification of properties in terms of location, type, use and purpose as well as characteristics of properties such as structural details and land attributes.
The group is made up of a cross-section of real property professionals, including appraisers, city planners, assessors, surveyors, inspectors, engineers, architects and technologists. eProp seeks to align real world concerns and information about real property with the application of modern technology-based data governance, management, exchange and analytics.
Green began working with ECCMA in the fall of 2012 in the quest for improving real property identification for electronic data interchange. She became a member of ECCMA in early 2013 and achieved the ISO 8000 Master Data Quality Manager Certificate.
“Technology is leveraging property information in ever-increasing ways, from simple directions to a restaurant to complex tracking of real property as collateral underlying a mortgage-backed security,” said Green. “I am committed to demystifying the inherent complexities in property information. Comprehensive location identity and core knowledge about the property are both fundamental and foundational to any property-related activity. Common definition and data standards are the key to unlocking the full potential of property data in modern society.”
Green will also be a featured speaker at the upcoming 14th Annual ECCMA Data Quality Summit, October 22-24 in Austin. Peter Benson, executive director of ECCMA heralds the group as an important initiative for the post Dodd-Frank economy and congratulated both Green and vice-chair John Cirincione, chief appraiser for Collateral Analytics, on sharing their collective experience and skills with the ECCMA community and the international data quality mission.
