Federal IT organizations across the DoD and IC are facing costly data storage
and data processing challenges stemming from the vast amount of information
they collect and analyze as a part of their mission. To effectively organize
and utilize these growing information stores, enterprise applications must be
capable of performing large-scale, data-intensive processing. Federal
enterprise infrastructures supporting such applications are often inadequate
to address these challenges, and IT organizations incur lost time and greater
costs trying to scale resources to meet storage and computing demand.
That is why Booz Allen Hamilton (BAH), in partnership with the Government,
led a research and development pilot to address these challenges by
leveraging Service-Oriented Architecture approaches to facilitate on-demand
resource provisioning to fold into current business proc... (more)
(April 22, 2002) - As an aid to the undeniable throng of folks who still

I-technology future. So it was perhaps a little surprising that U.S. District
Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly turned down a Microsoft Corporation objection
this week to written testimony by Sun Microsystems’ Jonathan Schwartz,
their chief strategy officer.
Schwartz stated in his testimony to Judge Kollar-Kotelly that Sun fears
