2.0 OVERVIEW OF OPEN SYSTEMS ARCHITECTURE OBJECTIVES

This section provides the definition of OSE and its purpose in the evolution of the current DoD technical infrastructure. The guiding principles or characteristics of an open system are also discussed in relation to their role in the design and development of OSE-compliant systems.

2.1 EVOLUTION TO OPEN SYSTEMS
The DoD technical infrastructure is evolving into an open system environment in response to a real need for information and resource sharing across differing or incompatible levels of information ownership (i.e., enterprise). As computer technology evolves, so do the practices and methodologies employed to integrate new technologies into the workplace. Included are the many principles developed for software engineering, which continue to be expanded upon and enhanced to guide/define the open systems environment.

Introduction

1.1 PURPOSE
The purpose of this volume of the Technical Architecture Framework for Information Management (TAFIM) is to provide program managers and their supporting Government and contractor staffs with guidance for developing technical architectures in planning and managing command, control, communications, computers, and intelligence (C4I), and information systems programs, either migration or new acquisition programs. Volume 5 is a guide for applying and integrating the principles and guidelines of the TAFIM and other Department of Defense (DoD) guidance documents promoting an open systems environment (OSE) for information systems. The information provided in this volume is intended to assist C4I and information systems program managers in making sound management decisions that result in OSE-compliant systems.
