Board of Directors
The Association for Enterprise Integration made a move to strengthen
its position by electing top corporate representatives to its Board
of Directors this year. This new Board reflects the new dynamism
of the Association, and will help move it forward to establish programs
that allow industry and government an opportunity to collaborate
over issues relating to breaking down stove pipes and sharing information.
The Board of Directors incorporates representatives from many of
America’s leading defense and technology firms. Originally
established to advocate adoption of commercial standards for the
exchange of data among defense logistics systems, AFEI has in recent
years become a leading advocate for harnessing the power of the
Internet to improve processes and organizational performance.
New AFEI board members represent firms such as Boeing Integrated
Defense Systems, Lockheed Martin Naval Electronics and Surveillance,
Northrop Grumman Information Technology, Raytheon Technical Services,
Anteon, Rockwell Collins, and Vector SCM. These organizations, leaders
in network centric operations and enterprise integration, considerably
strengthen AFEI’s programs in these areas while enhancing
the association’s profile on the regional and national levels.
“I’m very confident that AFEI can play an important
and highly significant role in the advancement of transformation
objectives and network centric operations on a national scale”,
commented LtGen Carl O’Berry, USAF (Ret.), Vice President
of Strategic Architectures at Boeing Integrated Defense Systems
and a newly-appointed AFEI Director.
Transformational technologies and network-centric operations are
fundamental to the Pentagon’s current effort to re-structure
the American military in response to challenges which have emerged
since the end of the Cold War.
AFEI’s new Chairman is Robert Kiggans, President and CEO
of the Advanced Technology Institute. Under its new leadership,
the Association for Enterprise Integration expects to play an even
stronger role in providing the framework for the exchange of information
among its government and industry participants, while supplying
the ethical framework for industry and government networking to
advance the principles of network centric, integrated enterprises.
