Air Force Portal
The US Air Force is designing an Air Force Portal,
which intends to integrate more than 28,000 information systems.
Usually the service members face many hassles on their job due
to lack of adequate information. The Air Force Portal is likely
make information easily available to the service people.
The informal name of the Air Force Portal is My.AirForce (my
dot Air Force). It will create a pool of information by bringing
hundreds of service’s Web-based systems into one point of
easy access. It will serve the US Air Force commanders with critical
battlefield information. It will further offer a variety of online
services. Service members moving to a new base would be able to
do automated, paperless processing of personnel, medical, pay
and other family information on the portal.
My.AirForce is an extension of the US
Air Force command and control system. It will provide timely
information for making critical decisions. The Air Force
Portal will deliver whatever information the service
personnel require to do their jobs in an efficient and hassles
free manner. The portal will cover information on a variety of
aspects ranging from logistics to the status of an order of supplies.
The US Air Force policy is to maintain a common look and feel
in its Web sites. The Air Force Portal would use the enterprise
infrastructure to support the web content. It will be open for
"public" access but with limited content.
The US Air Force is
collaborating with the FM Knowledge Management in structuring
the mutual content. FM public web site will be responsible for
ensuring updated information on the Air Force Portal. When you
log on to the FM web site in near future, it will direct you to
the portal. Work is on to move the current content to the portal.
The content managers are making all-out efforts to provide the
service community with the best possible information resources
through the portal.
