The National Environmental Satellite, Data, and Information Service (NESDIS), a part of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), is baselining its top-level requirements to codify and validate user needs and expectations as NESDIS moves toward a new Data Agnostic Common Services (DACS) business model to provide better services to its satellite data users in a cost-effective and sustainable manner. The DACS business model will enable NESDIS to prioritize funding for the most impactful products and services to its user community and to maintain a stable operational baseline, including IT Capability and Capacity planning.

An enterprise-level effort has been initiated by the NESDIS senior leadership and executed to conduct comprehensive analysis of current NESDIS satellite data products and services and to develop NESDIS top-level requirements. These requirements will then baseline and support DACS business model development. In this paper we will discuss 1) the NESDIS Integrated Product List (IPL), which currently lists over 1400 products and reports that are routinely produced; 2) Data Product Portfolios – (Continuity, Reimbursable, and Innovative & Research) that contain the IPL products. Each portfolio has associated processes to support cost-effective satellite data product planning, development, and management; 3) the Data Product Continuity Baseline which provides attributes (e.g., geo-coverage, latency, and refresh) for products in the Continuity portfolio; and 4) the NESDIS-level Requirements.
