Abstract:

Since Network Centric Warfare NCW theory stresses shared understanding, command dispersal, and improved situational awareness does it not follow then, that data availability, mining, and superior analytics must be available at all policy and command levels to support superior decision making Analyzing the anticipated massive amount of GIG data will almost certainly require data warehouses and federated data warehouses. The central question being addressed here is Will a new Data Warehouse Paradigm be required for Network Centric Warfare Service Oriented Architectures SOA This research attempts to answer this question by analyzing Service Oriented Architecture SOA based Virtual Data Warehouses , Corporate Information Factories, and SOA based federated data warehouses. The research concludes that Composeable Data Warehouse Services offer the best methodology for supporting decision making at all levels of dispersed command. On Demand - Composeable Data Warehouse Capabilities , based upon web services, should be implemented and registered on the GIG for testing and deployment if successful. These new paradigms will require that adaptive and agile Extract, Transform, and Load ETL services, dynamic report creation services, composeable mining engines, robust Meta data tagging for discovery and analysis, and more sophisticated analytics services be developed to fully exploit the vast amounts of Global Information GRID data which is expected to accumulate.
