Information and Knowledge Engineering

The IBM Team provides a full range of information and knowledge engineering services for tasks such designing IT solutions that enable decision-making (e.g. at the command level) by leveraging readiness information and knowledge from across the enterprise; designing IT solutions that allow for cross-organizational knowledge sharing despite disparate systems and data (e.g., Army, logistics or finance systems across Arm commands); and developing data mining and search capabilities across the enterprise. Work will focus on the standardization and implementation of common data elements and shared databases in support of the DoD and Department of Army standardization and interoperability policies, and the Army Knowledge Management Program and initiatives.
