The IAG has updated it's charter and has expanded its scope.
Provide broad industry input and perspectives on those issues of critical significance to a globally networked, integrated intelligence enterprise.
The IAG was asked to engage with a broad Defense community looking at developing new business models that address the expanded use of software components in mission systems architectures. Specifically this involves the application of standard interfaces and specifications for APIs to allow reuse of components such as services, Ozone widgets and app stores. This activity cuts across a broad swath of DoD, including USD(I), NRO, NGA, GCSS-AF, WHCA, AT&L, etc.
The IAG is also developing an industry input for the DI2E Services IPT on the services determined for release under the Svc V-4.
In 2008, the Office of the DoD Chief Information Officer (CIO) asked AFEI to form a working group to analyze the issues surrounding shared-services and to recommend strategies and policies incentivizing the implementation and adoption of shared-services within DoD. The White Paper provided the initial response as a broad framework for shared-service solutions. The recommendations represented the collective inputs of focused debate around enterprise development in the private sector and how those technologies and practices should be adapted to fit within DoD (warfighter, business, and intelligence domain users) plus where the timescale for decisions is more rapid, the security needs more demanding and the users more intertwined.
As a result of the White Paper and follow on briefings, AFEI was asked to create the IAG.
