A Platform Across the Valley of Death : Tech Transition via Open Enterprise Information System Development
MetadataShow full item record
Achieving “Tech Transfer”, defined as “an invention usefully adopted,” is difficult, particularly within the Defense Enterprise. The Defense acquisition system is designed to transition technology through a long serial process that is especially ill suited for Information Technology (IT). However, there is a successful commercial practice for transitioning newly invented IT called “Product Line Architecture” (PLA). PLA optimizes a specified open standard technical framework around specific, measurable, enterprise business objectives and streamlined bureaucratic process. There are no legal or technical barriers that prevent the Defense Enterprise from adapting PLA to leverage the IT marketplace for transition of information centric capabilities.
Chris Gunderson is a Research Associate at the Naval Postgraduate School. He is the principal investigator of the Open Enterprise Information System (OEIS) research initiative. This project sponsored by the Undersecretary of Defense for Intelligence and executed in the Northern Virginia. The project objective is to help the government improve its flawed information technology acquisition process through four key activities: Establish a collaborative network of government, industry, and academic experts who have succeeded at some aspect of OEIS; Study Internet successful stories and distill the lessons learned; Embed lessons learned into familiar government acquisition artifacts; Work with early adopting pilot projects to verify, validate, refine, and document best practices
