5 5 Details to OCIO 29 Patent and 3 Trademark resources are working to support the OCIO. Chris Doninger, a Managing Attorney, was detailed in June to be the Acting Special Assistant to the CIO on Trademarks. Two trademark examining attorneys with IT knowledge have been selected for limited work details with the OCIO. Trademark details will be for 90-120 days and can be extended with the agreement of both business units and the employees.

6 6 Strategic Information Technology Plan (SITP) The SITP presents the course of action the Agency intends to take over the next five years for IT. The primary purpose is to establish a strategic framework for guiding the course of IT initiatives through the Agency’s strategic planning and decision making process. For FY 2010, the Roadmap will be subsumed into the integrated Agency IT plan. The Trademark portion (Chapter 7) is being re-evaluated to reflect an accelerated strategy for electronic end-to- end processing and environment separation.

7 7 Revised Trademark Strategy Begin planning for the separation of the Trademarks environment; deliver Concept/Definition in Q2 and Prototype in FY 2010 Includes the re-write and re-hosting of the Trademark systems to modern technologies: –Redundant, scalable, and virtually hosted –Migration from legacy technologies to modern (not cutting edge) - Example: COBOL to Java –Hosted on industry standard cloud virtual platforms and commodity hardware (Linux) –Replacement of heavy client front-ends with Web 2.0 enhanced user interfaces –Industry standard platforms and technologies: Apache/Tomcat, Documentum, Service Mix/Fuse (SOA bus), Web Publisher, MySQL and Oracle.

12 Aug 03, 2009 12 Summary (cont …)  Road Map Practices & Tools Road Map programs and projects continue to support the OCIO Project Management efforts through support for the early adoption of improvements in EPMS (improved automated reporting), the SDLC (project close-out procedures), status reporting (standardized monthly reports), planning, and budgeting. Contributions this period include: -Finalization of project close-out procedures -Finalization of a Road Map Frequently Asked Questions (or FAQ) document – along with accompanying responses -Initiating efforts to reduce the time for project initiation and kick-off for FY’10 projects -Improving program and project status reporting, milestones establishment, issues reporting and related matters -Moving towards automated program and project status reporting (though EPMS) -Developing year-end Road Map reporting -Developing graphical representations for Road Map Program Strategic Formulations

13 Aug 03, 2009 13 Summary (cont …)  To date the Roadmap has obligated $26.7 million (of a total of $30.2 million*). Open commitments (not yet obligated) are $2.0 million.

19 Aug 03, 2009 19 Individual Program Accomplishments  Disaster Recovery Data Bunkering replicated 58 TB of data this period, for a total of 280 TB since the commencement of this project. This represents a completion percentage of 71.45 Data Bunkering has been impacted by equipment failures in Boyers and has experienced a 3 month delay. Completion is now scheduled for early FY10 The ECM LITE project was completed, including all project deliverables (such as set-up of the Test Environment and the deployment of ECM LITE).

23 Aug 03, 2009 23 Significant Issues & Risks  Data Center Power/Network Connectivity MDW/E data center facilities were at 96% of power and network capacity (start of FY09). Current utilization is 94% with 72 KW free. Equipment installations will be impacted Mitigation efforts include: -Short-term [1 to 3 months] - Completed Shutdown of non-utilized systems. Coordinate with AIS Stabilization -Mid-term [3 to 18 months] - 50% complete Move IT West data center to single power service, temporarily lose redundancy (development laboratory) – Completed – gain 90KW Move IT West data center (development/testing) to local battery. Facility remains on generator and will be redundant – gain 110KW (additionally restore 90KW (above) to redundant operation) -Long-term - [2 to 3 years] Expand Boyers facility (FY10-11). Procure another generator for Alexandria (FY11-12). Evaluate data center alternatives (other local sites; shared facilities; commercial availability)

24 Aug 03, 2009 24 Significant Issues & Risks (cont …)  Interdependencies The CIO initiated a special project to integrate Road Map interdependencies. The Project is in the Concept phase
