The world is changing at an accelerating rate and the federal government needs to keep pace. Broad-based change is always difficult, but the federal government is plagued by a variety of inhibitors to change, including enterprise verses mission organizational orientation; bureaucratic culture; program aligned funding processes; budgetary cycles and processes that do not facilitate agility or reuse; and a very large and diverse embedded technology base. Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) promises to help agencies rapidly reconfigure their business and more easily position IT resources to serve it. Improved business agility – through the sharing and reuse of infrastructure, services, information, and solutions - is a key component of any Federal Enterprise Architecture whose need will become increasingly critical in the future.
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
