Abstract:

Like other U.S. Department of Defense DoD organizations, the U.S. Air Force USAF is managing information, but in a disjointed fashion focused on system and technical architectures. In this paper, we describe an information architecture framework IAF to guide the creation of information architectures for managing USAF information assets from an enterprise perspective. The IAF was generalized from common components found within leading enterprise architecture frameworks in use today, adding fidelity to guide architecture developers when addressing the information view. We show through examples how information architecture elements fit into IAF and relate it to other USAF architecture efforts.
