Abstract
Currently, the Navy stores and retains data in multiple data warehouses, in various formats, in numerous legacy systems. The Navy's Bureau of Personnel is responsible for four distinct data stores that house unique data for: Active Duty Officers, Active Duty Enlisted, Drilling Reserve Officers and Enlisted, and all Inactive Service members. Decision-makers within the Navy have proposed combining the data into one cleansed, metadata tagged, indexable and searchable enterprise data environment. This environment will resolve redundant storage issues, as well as eliminate outdated, end-oflifecycle equipment and legacy infrastructure. This research will focus on the following. First, this research will focus on the current state of IT systems from the Department of Defense (DoD) level through the Department of the Navy (DoN) level to the focal syste--the Reserve Headquarters Support (RHS) system. Second, research of current departmental guidance as to the desired state of these systems will be conducted and summarized. Third, economic, technical, and strategic management theories will be studied and applied in order to conduct an economic analysis of the possibility of migrating the RHS application to a more modern IT solution. In the final chapter, conclusions and recommendations are provided concerning the most attractive way to proceed with the RHS application. Finally, possibilities for follow-on work are discussed.
