Net-Centric office explores new technologies, concepts

The Net-Centric Enterprise Services Program Management Office recently completed its first major Defense Department oversight review.

The NCES office, run out of the Defense Information Systems Agency, is now exploring new concepts and technologies while it continues to define its nine core services.

The initiative will integrate a common set of information services over the Global Information Grid. DOD recently issued a request for information, seeking software to support the NCES architecture, including content management, security, messaging, applications, storage, collaboration and enterprise management.

'NCES is a powerful transformational construct that will revolutionize the way we conduct warfighting and business operations throughout the department,' said Lt. Gen. Harry Raduege, director of DISA. 'It will bring advanced speed, precision and efficiency through integrated joint net-centric operations.'

DISA is also announcing organizational changes to the NCES program due to the upcoming departure of Dawn Meyerriecks, the agency's CTO and NCES program director. Meyerriecks will be leaving at the end of July to join America Online.

Raduege said the agency is currently considering candidates to replace Meyerriecks and expects to name a new director and other senior program members in the very near future.

'Our NCES team remains on track for a successful initial pilot this fall,' he added.
