The US Department of Defense (DoD) is leading the transformation of architecture-driven business systems/services development and deployment. Key principles to achieving DoD business transformation are: capabilities delivered as services within a SOA, enterprise architecture standards, domain ontologies, and the utilization of semantic technology to support data interoperability and business intelligence. Mr. Wisnosky discuss the strategy and give a high-level overview of the work being done towards realizing efficiency and interoperability within the DoD BMA.

Mr. Dennis Wisnosky is the DoD Business Mission Area Chief Technical Officer and Chief Architect. He is responsible for the BMA Federation Strategy and Roadmap. In 2007 and 2008, the vision for the Department's Business Operating Environment (BOE) was articulated in the BMA Federation Strategy and Roadmap. This vision was for business operations to be service enabled through the use of SOA, standards, federated and understandable architectures and common vocabularies. The BOE vision would later influence our present day DCMO and DoD CIO policies and Services strategies. Through policy, governance and partnership with the CIO, DISA and the Military Departments, this vision is taking shape. Next we must bring it all together by joining the vision for the BOE with the future promise of the Federal and DoD Cloud enabled by the strengths of semantic technology to support data integration. DoD BMA Semantic Technology efforts include: Data Integration, Semantic Mediation, Data Virtualization, Common Vocabulary, Enterprise Standards, and Cloud Computing.
