The advent of personal computers, workstations, and multiple interconnected Local Area Networks at the Naval Postgraduate School NPS, Monterey, California, has resulted in significant distribution, redundancy, and fragmentation of the data elements and databases necessary to effectively manage the organization. This thesis addresses this issue by accomplishing the following two goals. First, it develops a high-level model of the organizations information architecture through the use of the Information Engineering methodology, with automated support from the Texas Instruments Integrated Computer Aided Software Engineering I-CASE tool Information Engineering Facility IEF. Based on the high-level model it then provides an analysis of data management architecture alternatives to address the current problems. The thesis main recommendation is for the implementation of a clientserver information processing architecture at NPS. The enterprise and information architecture analyses provide additional recommendations to improve the current NPS organizational Structure.
