Abstract:

Collaboration interoperability has many technical challenges, but these are only one aspect of true interoperability. If we are to reach the goals of Network Centric Warfare, we must address all of the various faces of interoperability. The people, processes and technology offer a diverse, interdependent set of challenges, all of which impact our ability to successfully collaborate in a robust online environment. The challenges range from a diverse user group, to major cultural barriers and from security procedures to simple data interoperability. The technical challenges should not be minimized, with areas of standards compliance and cross-domain solutions having the greatest potential. Many of these problems are not new, but simply look new. These challenges will require training in the new processes. Other challenges will require a change in attitude and culture to properly address.
