What's Wrong with DoD's So-Called Information Architectures And What We Ought To Be Doing About It
MetadataShow full item record
What are we after? Interoperability. Components of multiple programs, services and allies need to work together. This paper accepts without further argument that improved information systems can improve combat power, including the deterrence capability that combat power confers. This paper also recognizes that the list of other programs that one must be interoperable with is indefinitely long. Therefore, an open-ended solution is a fundamental requirement. This leads us directly to the need for an architecture. We need a common design vision that each program manager or procurement agent works to fit into. Defining and articulating such an architecture is my purpose here.
