Letter: DISA behind the SOA curve

In reference to “DISA sees managed services as the future,” it is typical of the Defense Information Systems Agency to be behind the power curve on service-oriented architectures and monitoring services. The money the agency spends on a test effort would be better served by asking industry if full-up service level agreement management systems already exist. The answer is of course yes, with many trades and studies performed to make it work. Take a look at the Federal Aviation Administration’s Telecommunications Infrastructure Program, and the model FAA uses for services and service definitions. I thought it was DISA's intent to reuse first, buy second and develop third. This pilot looks like a road to develop without reuse.
