Knowledge Architect/Operation/Management/Profiles

Virtual Profile Archetypes

Decoupling managed knowledge resources from their physical or persisted representations is a common requirement as each resource can have multiple distributed redundant and/or complementary persisted instances.

More so, not only knowledge resources can combine information from multiple sources, but also, according to entitlement, rules, authorizations, classifications, and effective contexts, these resources can each appear quite differently for every request or access.

Consequently knowledge resources are better abstracted and generalized to virtual profiles.

While virtual profiles apply to all managed resources, some key resource types require especially flexible (ex: generic and specialized) management, as agent resource archetypes, for example.

While other knowledge resource archetypes (ex: relations, events, processes, descriptions), some of which may have been somewhat briefly introduced already, are also key, agents (ex: people, beings, systems, organizations) are especially key knowledge resource management archetypes, because they can be assigned much responsibility (ex: ownership), rights, and roles.

These assigned agent roles are also typically determining management resource archetypes.
