Enterprise Services

The DON CIO is implementing a Navy and Marine Corps Portal strategy that will provide the single sign-on gateway to the Department of the Navy's core enterprise applications, services and processes. This strategy will align with Department of Defense and Joint efforts. The DON CIO is intensifying efforts to eliminate legacy networks, servers, systems, applications and duplicative data environments. The DON CIO is transforming proprietary and tightly coupled systems and applications into a set of enterprise services that emphasize loosely coupled systems and processes. These enterprise services will be leveraged across the Department to provide seamless connectivity to mission critical information.
