Abstract:

U.S. Naval Security Group NSG community data resides in disassociated systems with no clear data hierarchy. The NSGs lack of a central information framework wastes money, consumes manpower, and underutilizes claimancy resources. To improve NSG data operations, an Enterprise Information System EIS was designed and implemented using Commercial Off The Shelf hardware and software. First, an Internet browser-based, client server architecture was selected that optimizes performance, interoperability, and cost. Next, a database schema was designed and instantiated using relational technology. Then, web server database access files were created that emphasize connectivity and utility. Finally, EIS integrity and privacy concerns were examined. The prototype NSG EIS optimizes personnel and resources, improves data accuracy and timeliness, and enhances the Naval Security Groups aggressive pursuit of information dominance. The proposed NSG EIS provides the NSG with an affordable and efficient method to bring timely and accurate information to bear in an increasingly information dependent military.
