The Army has selected Composite Software Inc.'s Composite Information Server as the foundation for unifying its data infrastructure. The contract award is part of an effort to link existing systems in its logistics, finance and human resource domains.
The Army will use the software to create a data services layer within its service-oriented architecture to enable universal access to data stored in hundreds of domains, according to the company.
The Army will deploy the software at its Enterprise Solutions Competency Center, part of the Software Engineering Center. The competency center's mission is to deliver enterprise solutions to Army business domains and to program executive offices and program managers throughout the Defense Department.
The software will also help support a community of interest in the Office of the Secretary of Defense that is developing best practices for sharing data based on SOA tools and techniques, company officials said.
