1 The Role Of IT Modernization in DOD

2 Agenda Software Engineering Center Organization and Mission
SEC-B Business Mission Area Leaders for Enterprise Activities Why is IT Modernization important now and how we are positioned to address the challenges Decomposing the Modernization Problem Enterprise Solutions Competency Center Service Oriented Architecture Life Cycle Management Model Status and Challenges

Bragg, NC; Eglin AFB, FL; Ft Detrick, MD Outside the Continental US: Seckenheim, GE (European SW Support Office) Seoul, Korea (Korean SW Support Office) Baghdad, Iraq (SWA Support) Field Software Engineers forward deployed with units worldwide

4 SEC-Belvoir…supporting the Army Enterprise
Technical leadership and expertise to support the Army’s transition to Network Centric Warfare and Service Oriented Architecture (SOA). Established the Data Strategy (DS) Center of Excellence (CoE) to provide standardized data products to support shared use and interoperability Established and maintain the Army Enterprise Solutions Competency Center to provide consulting, education, and testing services for Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and SOA Provide technical expertise to members of the acquisition community developing SOA solutions: PM Future Combat Systems; PM Distributed Common Ground Station – Army; PM Battle Command Independent security testing for systems software including applications that ensure all the security requirements are implemented. Provisionally designated as the agent for the Army Certification and Accreditation Contributor to DUSA-BT and ASA(ALT) Business Transformation initiatives Software Asset Management Software Quality Assessment Software Commoditization CMMI/Lean 6 Sigma Process Improvement Army Strategic Software Improvement Program (ASSIP)

6 Why is IT Modernization important now?
Focus will be on software support and engineering to Army IT based on DOD standards Fast paced IT market, both from a business and technology sense which undermines traditional research & acquisition efforts COTS Testing alone takes too long and cost too much No single body of knowledge from which a PM can judge competing IT offerings No single source for assessing risk, composibility and scalability Current Assessment by GAO and OSD is greater than 72% failure rate of IT programs (cost, schedule, performance, sustainability) IPV6 SOA Semantic Web ERP Web 2.0 software as a service

7 Decomposing the Problem Of Modernization: Domain Areas of Interest Within CECOM
Warfighter Mission Area Business Mission Area *A gross simplification but helpful in focusing organizations and missions

11 Enterprise Integrated Business Environment

12 Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) is critical to Army Transformation
Characteristics of the Army transformation Develop and deploy solutions against a more flexible architecture that can be More responsive to change Easier to maintain More efficient Transition from approaches that promote stovepipe solutions to those based upon SOA Avoid pitfalls that other implementations (e.g., ERP) have encountered Problem: DoD 5000 is not designed for agile Army acquisition of services/SOA. Problem: Army needs a mechanism to help manage the entire SOA lifecycle. Response Provide a methodology that helps the Army make smart decisions about how to integrate SOA LCMM is providing a guide to support the Army transition to SOA

13 LCMM is supporting the Army in implementing SOA
Provides a consolidated place for Army-centric SOA methodology Creates a living methodology with input from Army and other sources Includes SOA industry best practices Educates Army personnel of all levels about service orientation LCMM’s goal is enable the Army to make smart decisions about how to integrate SOA into the Army environment

14 It’s not easy .. the LCMM addresses challenges the Army may face in its transition to SOA
Example Cultural Shift Can organizations adopt the service-oriented paradigm? How do we do SOA IV&V as an Army-wide practice? Funding Issues Who pays for and who maintains the services? Acquisition Issues Can we reconcile DoD 5000 with the more agile acquisition needed for many SOA projects?

15 The LCMM has gone through several iterations, engaged SOA Consortium, and continues to evolve …
September 2007 Presented early LCMM draft to SOA Consortium (SOA-C SOA Army Adoption Project) November 2007 Army officially joined the Object Management Group’s (OMG) SOA Consortium December 13, 2007 Presented LCMM Version 1.0 to the SOA Consortium March 12, 2008 Will discuss the coordination and cross referencing of the LCMM and SOA-C Planning Framework for mutual benefit (evolving)

16 The SOA Consortium/Army interaction presents a great opportunity for synergy
The SOA Consortium (SOA-C) Established the Army SOA Adoption Project Agreed to an exchange of vital SOA information between the Army and the Consortium membership The SOA-C mission is consistent with Army SOA Objectives Achieving the benefits of service-oriented architecture requires significant changes for both IT and business executives Enterprise SOA practitioners would greatly benefit from a vibrant practitioner community to drive local, business-driven, SOA success Cross referencing the SOA-C Planning Framework with the LCMM Business Roadmap provides an opportunity To synchronize the LCMM with industry practitioners Inform the SOA-C through implementation of a SOA methodology within a government environment

17 The next versions of the LCMM will expand on several areas
SOA and security SOA and data Agile methodology for delivering SOA services Governance (organizational, design-time, and run-time) Synchronization between SOA Consortium Implementation Planning Framework (evolving)

18 Using a discrete volume approach future releases, LCMM users can easily determine where to go for their specific needs Roadmap Model Driven Architecture Metadata and Semantics Capability & Requirements Performance& TPMs Business Processes Information & Data System Architecture Requirements Deployment Interfaces Service Component Dynamic Architecture Features Composing Applications at Run-time Features Principles of SOA Engineering Principles of SOA Delivery SOA Characteristics SOA Funding& Acquisition Acquisition Funding SOA Governance (organizational, design-time, run-time) Control Points Business Rhythms Promotions and Demotions Agile SOA Methodology Workflows Event-driven Activities Tasks SOA and Data Service Data Information Application Utilization Component Business Roadmap Major Activities Service Enablement Service Sustainment SOA Methodology Framework Framework Process Organizational Entity Discipline Roles Major, role-based entry points Integrated Subject Areas SOA and Security Threats Protection Points Services Assurance The diagram illustrates the LCMM volumes for future releases. The next release of the LCMM will consist of the first nine volumes; volume 10 is for a future release.

19 Status and Challenges Status
Closely couples with DISA NCES SOA-F program Closely couples with US Army CERDEC Warfighter and SOA foundational research ASA(ALT) coordinating for review of SOA LCMM and potential cross walk with Ultra Large Scale Computing analysis, software acquisition policy, software version blocking and deployment OSD ALT future review of SOA LCMM for potential impact on DOD regulations and policy Challenges Late adoption, early adoption paradox Data Meister and communities of interest parochialisms Shiny Nickel tendency in DOD
