Navy sets Web-enabling plan

April 18 NMCI briefing

Navy officials say the service intends to make all of its applications available through Web interfaces by 2004.

Under a recently released plan, Navy users will be able to access at least 50 applications through Web interfaces by November 2001, according to an April 1 message sent by Adm. William Fallon, vice chief of naval operations.

Last year, Adm. Vern Clark, chief of naval operations, set a 2003 deadline to Web-enable its applications.

The 50 applications to be Web-enabled this year are just a small number compared with the total the Navy uses. One command alone has 6,950 applications, according to Joseph Cipriano, the Navy's program executive officer for information technology.

Task Force Web, led by Monica Shephard, the Atlantic Fleet's director of space, information warfare, command and control, will manage the application initiative, according to Fallon's message. "The most important tasks ahead of us are the culture, institutional and process changes," he wrote.

The message doesn't address joint applications that aren't fully Web- enabled, such as the Composite Health Care System II or the Standard Procurement System.
