This paper details an operational concept calling for an Information Management IM capability to support a Joint Force Air and Space Component Commander JFACC and an Air and Space Component in 2010. It proposes the establishment of a Community of Interest COI construct, a JFACC IM organization, and the supporting operational processes. Throughout the Department of Defense DoD there are numerous ongoing efforts supporting the goal of net-centricity . Most of the impetus is system-oriented or reflects a system-centric approach. The concept described in this paper focuses on the operational aspects, i.e., business processes supporting the JFACC that will take full advantage of the net-centric environment in 2010. The proposed concept presents an approach to make data visible, accessible, understandable, and trustable. It allows information managers to reach across traditionally stove-piped organizations processes and applications to meld the information within a net-centric environment and allow users to seek and use the information they need across the battlespace. The intent of this paper is not to dismiss existing or evolving IM- or Net-Centric undertakings rather, it should enhance those efforts by providing an operational perspective on how to manage data and information within a Joint force environment.
