NMCI symposium will benefit Navy and vendors, director says

Although lead Navy-Marine Corps Intranet contractor EDS Corp. and a cadre of subcontractors are building the portal architecture for NMCI, the program needs more contractors to trim thousands of legacy applications from use, develop enterprise software and consolidate databases.

'That's the huge opportunity here on both sides,' said Rear Adm. Charles Munns, NMCI's director, during a media briefing.

Munns said he is hoping an industry symposium on NMCI, June 17-19 in New Orleans, will open a dialogue between IT vendors and the Navy.

The symposium also will benefit thousands of government software developers who are used to writing applications for a specific command or directorate, officials said, and not necessarily for the entire enterprise.

'I think it'll be more efficient for them,' Munns said.
