Abstract : The purpose of the AITS is to guide DoD Enterprise acquisitions and the migration of legacy systems by providing a definitive set of information technology (IT) standards to be used in DoD. These standards provide consistency across the Enterprise, Mission, Function, and Application levels of the DoD Integration Model, as described in Volume 1 of the TAFIM. The goal in providing effective and usable standards guidance is to support the broader TAFIM objectives of: improving user productivity; Improving development efficiency; Improving portability and scalability; Improving interoperability; Promoting vendor independence; Reducing life cycle costs; Improving security; and improving manageability. The AITS is the definitive set of IT standards to be used in the DoD. The AITS applies to all DoD IT programs and initiatives. The AITS is the common DoD IT standards reference applicable to all life cycle decisions affecting interoperability, portability, and scalability, and is to be used to guide in the development of standards profiles. The Information Technology Standards Guidance (ITSG) provides a foundation for the AITS. The ITSG contains more detailed, supporting information about the state of standardization in each of the subject areas listed in the AITS Figures (see Appendix A), as well as other areas in which standardization has not progressed to the point where adopting a standard is in order (see Section 1.3). These subject areas are called base service areas (BSAs).
