FOSE visitor's shopping list calls for middleware

When Defense Department personnel managers want to know the number of officers in a particular rank across the service branches, they have to hunt out the counts from various personnel systems and add them up by hand.

Nancy Johnson, executive director of the eBusiness Program Office at the Defense Logistics Agency, said her mission at the FOSE trade show today is to find intelligent middleware to make such information easily accessible in one place.

Between attending panel discussions and booth duty, Johnson said, she is hunting for middleware that can pull data from various systems forward in real time. Fusing data from disparate systems is one of DLA's biggest challenges, she said.

DLA's eBusiness office provides electronic commerce services, business process improvement, content management and distribution, and architecture and standards across DOD.
