Policy Cloud has published three reports relating to the four Policy Cloud Pilot Use Cases, D6.10 Use Case Scenarios Definition & Design, D6.4 Use Cases Implementation & Experimentation, and D6.5 Use Cases Adaptation & Recommendations. Each report covers different aspects of Policy Cloud’s use case process.
The three reports cover the lifecycle of Policy Cloud use case scenarios. As the current iteration of the Policy Cloud platform is not yet ready to be exploited and experimented with by the pilots, these three documents outline the descriptions of the scenarios, the KPIs against which they will be judged, the requirements for the scenarios, the end to end user story, and the evaluation methodology which will be used to evaluate the success of the scenarios.
D6.10 is the second version of D6.3 Use Case Scenarios Definition & Design, submitted in September 2020. It provides an updated version of the use case scenarios description, and completes the information presented there. In addition, this deliverable collects the refined versions of the visualization requirements and KPIs per use case. KPIs are classified in three categories: political, technical and business. The use cases have been defined taking into account the information collected from the different stakeholders participating in the pilots, as well as from the previous experience and know-how of the project partners. Several workshops have been organized by the project to gather feedback and requirements from relevant stakeholders. This document is the basis for the definition of the main features to be provided by Policy Cloud tools and models in the different pilots’ implementation.
D6.4 describes the end to end (E2E) scenarios that will explore how users will effectively use the Policy Cloud platform. The given scenarios describe the different steps required in order to perform the modelling of the policy. The scenarios also include details of the necessary configurations and settings needed to determine the output of the visualization module.
D6.5 details the evaluation process of the use cases. It presents the proposed methodology, the time planning of the evaluation methods proposed within the project lifecycle, the specific objectives they pursue, and their expected impact. It provides an initial approach to the evaluation methodology differentiating between Impact Analysis (IA) evaluations which are intended to assess the expected impact of the project and how evidence based policies contribute to the policy modelling process and its implementation, and Quality Validations (QV), which try to determine how to validate the innovative tools and modules developed within the project, specifically the Policy Development Toolkit(PDT).
