Abstract : A key element of the United States Department of Defense's Corporate information Management (CIM) initiatives for the 1990s is the implementation of a computing and communications infrastructure that will support portability, scalability, and interoperability of applications. Deputy Secretary of Defense William J. Perry's policy memorandum of 13 October 1993 entitled "Accelerated Implementation of Migration Systems, Data Standards, and Process improvement" reaffirms CIM principles and calls for all DoD components to begin migration from legacy to target systems in such a way 'that migrate the system toward an open system environment and a standards-based architecture defined by the DoD Technical Architecture Framework for Information Management' (TAFIM). In support of this goal, the DoD Standards-Based Architecture Planning Guide (the SBA Guide) has become Volume 4 of the TAFIM, which defines a common framework and profile of standards for the computing and communications infrastructure. The methodology prescribed in the SBA Guide provides a way of mapping the technology architecture, which is the primary focus of Volumes 1, 2, and 3 of TAFIM, to the three other views of an integrated architecture: work, data or information, and applications. This version of the SBA Guide is an update of an earlier version that was written from October 1991 through April 1992 under contract #DCA 100-91-C-0166. It presents a process for developing a standards-based architecture within the Department of Defense. At the time of this update, two major architecture engagements have been completed based on the use of the planning approach described in the earlier version of the SBA Guide. The goal of the updated SBA Guide is to incorporate recommended changes that effectively echo the lessons learned in the course of these two engagements.
