Mike Hulme is the Co-Chair of the National Information Exchange Model (NIEM) Technical Architecture Committee (NTAC), working extensively with state, local, and tribal organizations to implement systems that maintain and share mission information.
As an Enterprise/Solutions Architect for Unisys Corporation, Mr. Hulme has more than 20 years of experience developing, delivering, and integrating justice and public safety information systems and solutions for government agencies. He has implemented state and local law enforcement message switching and city- and county-level integrated justice solutions that share information between law enforcement, prosecution, courts, corrections, and human services, using NIEM and other standards.
Nationally known for his technical leadership in the use of Extensible Markup Language (XML) for justice information sharing, Mr. Hulme has actively served on the NTAC since its inception in 2005. He is a founding member of the Justice XML Structure Task Force of the Global Justice Information Sharing Initiative, providing thought leadership, guidance, and review for the development of the Global Justice XML Data Model (GJXDM), now the justice domain of NIEM. He is a member and past chairman of the Integrated Justice Information Systems (IJIS) Institute’s IJIS Technical Advisory Committee (I-TAC).
Mr. Hulme has provided technical guidance and review to all three major versions of NIEM, working to continually improve the technical aspects of the model. He has served as a speaker and a trainer at many NIEM events, including the official public announcement of NIEM. He was the primary author of GJXDM Information Exchange Package Documentation Guidelines and contributed to its successor, the NIEM Model Package Description Specification and the NIEM Naming and Design Rules. He authored an NTAC white paper on NIEM Business Information Exchange Components and Enterprise Information Exchange Models, and developed Information Exchange Package Documentation for many government information exchanges.
Mr. Hulme was the first recipient of the Robert P. Shumate Contributor of Excellence Award from the Integrated Justice Information Systems (IJIS) Institute, for his work to support the development of information sharing standards now adopted widely throughout the United States.
