Canes implementation: analysis of budgetary, business, and policy challenges
MetadataShow full item record
To reduce cost and effectively manage afloat networks, the Navy is adopting current industry best practices, including the use of a common computing environment and open architecture. The Consolidated Afloat Network Enterprise System (CANES) was designed to employ these frameworks. CANES will combine five existing shipboard networks by utilizing commercial-off-the-shelf hardware and SOFtware. The use of CANES is expected to reduce overall cost by eliminating redundant information technology infrastructure and migrating to service-oriented architecture. This report focuses on acquisition strategy and policy, technological influences, and economic factors that could affect the ongoing implementation process of the CANES program. These factors directly impact the decisions being made in fielding the application of CANES. An analysis of these approaches in the context of these factors shows a negative effect of deficit-driven budgeting on schedule and performance.
