The purpose of this seminar is to share lessons learned through the Horizontal Fusion pilots and Blue Force Tracking pilots demonstrating the use of services to expose information to the Enterprises for access and use by decision-makers.The discussion will provide key principles of net-centric operations in current or future exercises. It will demonstrate that the Data Strategy can be implemented today and will offer examples that will illustrate the value to the enterprise. This seminar will provide lessons learned that both the government and industry can apply to transformation of the Department to an information age enterprise.


The overall objective of net-centricity is to empower the users to make more informed decisions by populating the DoD network -- known as the Global Information Grid (GIG) -- with discoverable, useful, dynamic sources of information. The seminar will help frame the roadmap for how the Department will effectively manage its valued data assets (e.g., systems or application files,databases, documents, web pages, or services that access data from an application).

DoD Goal

The goal of the Department is to make data assets understandable, visible and accessible to the unanticipated user as well as the known user and yet deny the enemy access. The goal of the Industry Day Event is to share proven net-centric concepts with industry and government stakeholders as potential developers or consumers of net-centric data services. These stakeholders (government and industry) can better support development, integration, protection, and implementation of products and services in support of DoD's net-centric objectives.
