2 Joint Information Environment What is it, anyways!? Shared IT infrastructureEnterprise servicesSingle Security Architecture
3 JIE is NOT a Program of Record JIE is NOT a turn-key solutionJIE is NOT an independent “way of doing things”Uses existing architectures and services
4 JIE Core Principles – the BIG Rocks Joint Governance“IT Task Force”Network NormalizationStandardizationData Center ConsolidationReduced IT FootprintIdentity and Access ManagementTrusted authenticationEnterprise Services, collaboration, file storage, etc.FIRST PROBLEM: GET BUY IN FROM THE AOR IT EXPERTS
5 JIE – What are we trying to achieve? Improved Mission Effectiveness/Operational FlexibilityAGILEIncludes mobile, deployedWorks in Disconnected, Intermittent and Low BandwidthIncreased Cyber SecurityConfidentiality, integrity and availabilityWorks with ALL Mission PartnersIT Efficiencies/Joint Information ServicesInteroperableMaximum performance, reliability and extensibility
6 JIE’s Three Lines of Operation GovernanceOperationsTechnical Synchronization
8 Enterprise Operations Center JIE Increment I EUCOMBuilds on existing network consolidation effortsHeavily reliant on cloud architecturesMove Massive Application Silo’s to more flexible, responsive infrastructureEnterprise Operations CenterStuttgart, Germany
10 JIE Increment 2 - PACOMCoalition capability “built-in” and not “added-on”Common Mission Network Transport must support network security enclaves to accommodate many communities-of-interest to support user-to-user coalition connectivityA wide-area neutral network is needed to connect the networks of sovereign nationsRobust identity authentication and authorization management for each nation to maintain trust in the system
11 Discretionary Information Sharing Trusted personnel Identification and authorization serviceAgile virtual enclavesInformation conditioningStrength of separation required
12 JIE Challenges Multiple Enterprises Multiple Data Types Military Services, Intelligence Community, Agencies, CCDRS Multiple Partners, Allies, Coalitions, States, NGAs, OGAs, PVOs, etc.Multiple Data TypesPublic, Releasable, Private, Controlled, and Classified InformationAustere Connectivity Over Very Large DistancesNot just robust high-capacity public infrastructureMobile Forces & PeopleHuge Populations & CommunitiesPartners with varying levels of trust

14 Jesse Adams Chief Architect – US NAVY NGEN/NMCI, HP Enterprise Services Jesse has been with HP (EDS) since 2007.Jesse started as a Solutions Architect on the NMCI account, then became HP’s Chief Architect for the account in early 2010.Responsible for working with the Echelon II commands to understand their objectives and help shape strategies.He joins us from the Dallas Fort Worth area.
15 JIE Challenges under NGEN Not a Program – perceived as an “unfunded mandate”Program Office may pick-and-choose elements of JIE to be adoptedLPTA Limits InnovationTechnology Refresh and Insertion Program will be largely responsible for moving existing designs into compliance with JIE, extending timeline for adoption over several years.“Not Designed Here” SyndromeMust minimize the “drift” likely to occur from differing opinions on how to apply JIE
16 JIE Opportunities under NGEN Adoption of SSA will help mitigate ever-increasing circuit strainsThe introduction of the SSA at primary site boundaries will enable NMCI to stand down their Boundary 1’s, which are overloaded today largely due to media-rich Internet traffic.On average, up to 90% of Internet traffic crossing the NMCI Boundary 1’s is MWR-related.By facilitating Internet access closer to the users, the volume of traffic can be distributed across more points, reducing its impact on any individual WAN circuit.
17 JIE Opportunities under NGEN Server Farm Consolidation revisitedMove from a simple fork-lift approach to a modernization / transformation strategyConsolidate to standardized platformsMaximize virtualization for greatest service densityMove to a common reference architecture – potentially enable seamless migration of services between various data centers to meet evolving mission requirements.Introduction of “XaaS”Technologies reviewed/revised to better enable “confederation” of services and data, in order to better position them to best support the users.
