Abstract : The Institute for Defense Analyses (IDA) was tasked by the Department of Defense (DoD) to study information infrastructures for enterprise integration. Two documents resulted, IDA Paper P-2664, information Infrastructures for Integrated Enterprises, and IDA Document D- 1386, Current Standardization and Cooperative Efforts Related to Industrial Information Infrastructures. The information presented here in this document provides an assessment and a baseline of 85 key standards and technologies that will be required over the next 10 years to build the necessary components of an information infrastructure. Both public and proprietary standards are reviewed since important contributions to an information infrastructure will come from both sources. A brief description of each standard and technology is provided, and its importance to information integration is assessed along with its current status. The team set out to accomplish the following objectives: (1) Identify, organize, and present available technology components from which a United States information integration strategy can be coalesced. These technology components are derived from current standards and from standardization and pre-standardization efforts; and (2) Identify specific opportunities to accelerate the development and adoption of components and/or to increase the likelihood of their success.
