  1. Rising to the Net-Centric Challenge …Delivering Core Enterprise Services to the DoD and IC Communities Ms. Teri Hoffman-Boswell Dr. Glen White MITRE Project Lead Chief Engineer Net-Centric Enterprise Services PMO 28 April 2009

  2. The DOD Vision Net-Centric Data Strategy (9 May 2003) Make Data Visible Is an information resource discoverable by end-users? Is it connected to the network(s), and are tools readily available to use and allow assured access to it? Make Data Accessible Make Data Understandable Can it be used intelligibly? Are the semantics well documented? Is the authority (pedigree, security level, and access control level) known and available? Enable Data to Be Trusted Make Data Interoperable Can it be easily combined or compared with other information and/or mediated? Are users involved in COIs? Are robust, direct user feedback mechanisms in place to guide development? Be Responsive to User Needs

  3. Evolution to Integrated Services User Access Standards-Based Enterprise Services Content Delivery ESM Collab People Discovery Service Discovery Metadata Discovery GCCS-AF GCCS-A GCCS-MC GCCS-M Service Security M2M Messaging Mediation Content Discovery Operator Interface Standards & Specifications Standards-Based Capability Modules Blue Force Ground Association Mgmt Red Track Data METOC Individual Automated Systems Producer Centric User Centric • Slow Adaptation to Operational Changes • Tightly Coupled • Integration • Islands of Automation • Custom-built • One to One • - Highly Responsive to • Operational Changes • Loosely Coupled • Maximized Use of COTS • Interoperability With • External Domains • - Many to Many
