Composite Software Supports SOA Initiatives For U.S. Army

Composite’s Data Services to Deliver On-Demand Information to Senior Army Leadership and Officers in Charge of Day-to-Day Operations

SAN MATEO, Calif. - December 10, 2007 – Composite Software, the real-time data integration leader, today announced that the U.S. Army has selected its Composite Information Server™ to play an integral role in the Army’s data integration infrastructure.

The U.S. Army plans to create a data services layer within its service-oriented architecture (SOA) infrastructure, to federate access to data within its legacy systems that include hundreds of Logistics, Finance and Human Resources (HR) domains.

Composite Software’s data services layer simplifies the complexity of accessing siloed and disparate data sources—across multiple operational areas. Composite reaches data where it is, and federates the disparate data into useful views, delivering what is needed, so that all the data appears as if it is one location.  This data-integration solution will make data available from numerous legacy systems across the Army, thereby increasing the availability of critical information to users around the world in a net-centric environment.

Composite Software’s technology will now be a core part of the U.S. Army’s Enterprise Solutions Competency Center (ESCC), with U.S. Army Chief George “Chip” Raymond of the Enterprise Systems Division, Software Engineering Center.  The goal of ESCC is to affect successful implementation of enterprise solutions to Army business domains, program executive offices and program managers across the Department of Defense and the Army.  More information about ESCC may be found at https://soa.army.mil.

Further, Composite Software’s technology is helping a community of interest (COI) within the Office of the Secretary of Defense to apply best practices and a net-centric approach to sharing data, based on SOA tools and techniques. The design will allow service and agency components to leverage data via web services and data federation techniques.  According to the U.S. Department of Defense Chief Information Officer, a COI includes end users, program managers, application developers, subject matter experts, Combatant Command, Service and Agency representatives, and IT Portfolio representatives.
