Abstract:

Access and availability to information is the key to for future command and control with improved access to information as an objective of the DoDs net-centric initiatives. However, net-centric initiatives are being implemented, piecemeal and slowly, through the DoD Data Strategy currently focused at the community of interest level COI. In order to improve the speed of transformation, take advantage of net-centric concepts, and to manage information for decision-makers, an information management strategy and a information integration framework to implement that strategy is required. This paper proposes a C2 Information Integration Framework C2IIF that provides management of data strategies, value of information, and Communities of Interest COIs at the information level and within the context of portfolio oversight. It permits capabilities alignment to meet transformation objectives assures sound management of the Departments IT investment decisions. Through this framework, DoD can improve information sharing with a repeatable, analytical process. Additionally, since legacy applications are included as part of the framework, the strategy provides the means to migrate and evaluate legacy applications and data within the net-centric environment.
