DOD has undertaken a challenging and ambitious task to, within 1 year, develop a departmentwide blueprint for modernizing its over 1,700 timeworn, inefficient, and nonintegrated business processes and supporting information technology IT assets. Such a blueprint, commonly called an enterprise architecture, is an essential modernization management tool. We support the Secretary of Defenses decision to develop an architecture and the departments goal of acquiring systems that provide timely, reliable, and relevant information.
