Data communications, as in emerging technologies, poses managerial problems for the Navy. The problems involve keeping knowledgeable about new technologies, evaluating their application, and controlling usage to ensure compatibility with organizational strategic goals. An IRM framework is utilized to examine the problems and to discuss the viewpoints of and decision problems faced by the usert, as a buyer, and central management, as the provider of information based services. Alternative means of providing the service include outside consultants, NAVTELCOM, NAVDACNARDACs or expanding an individual activities staff. Each of these is a viable option and each is analyzed. The authors recommend the formation of a steering committee, comprised of representatives from NAVDAC and NAVTELCOM, to provide strategic direction and policy and an organizational Technology Team to provide targeted assistance as a significant step toward managing the implentation of this emerging data communications technology.
