Are you looking for a way to build applications that support the Department of Defense or Federal Enterprise Architecture (FEA) framework? Do you need to comply with government directives that mandate a uniform method for describing information systems?
The IBM® Rational® System Architect® environment provides solutions for government and Defense Architecture Frameworks (DoDAF 2.0, DoDAF ABM, MODAF, and NAF). The Rational System Architect solution offers comprehensive support for operational, systems, and technology modeling to produce required artifacts at the enterprise level for framework and industry requirements.
In the Rational System Architect tool, images of applicable DoDAF and other defense products are not simply drawings, but a dynamic collection of interrelated properties. Hence, data entered for one view, where applicable, can be reused in another. For example, the Rational System Architect solution can automatically build your OV-3 operational information exchange matrix from your OV-2 operational node connectivity description and OV-5 activity model. In addition, the DoDAF V2.0 solution supports net-centric data strategy, service-oriented architecture, and the federal enterprise architecture guidance from OMB.
The Rational System Architect solution assists your Enterprise Architecture for government and defense applications with:
DODAF v2.0 and DoDAF ABM – IBM® Rational® System Architect® for DoDAF v2.0 Add On and the IBM® Rational® System Architect® DoDAF with ABM Add On is a comprehensive enterprise software solution that supports the US Department of Defense Architect Framework (DoDAF), formerly known as C4ISR Framework. Rational System Architect for DoDAF 2.0 Add On offers complete support for operational, systems, and technology modeling to produce required DoDAF 2.0 artifacts at the enterprise level.
MoDAF – IBM® Rational® System Architect® for MODAF Add On for the Ministry of Defence Architecture Framework (MODAF) provides you with an environment designed for these applications. The Rational System Architect for MODAF Add On offers complete support for acquisition, capability, operational, systems, and technology modeling to produce the required MODAF views. MODAF is a key enabler for the Ministry of Defence's (MoD) Network Enabled Capability (NEC).
NAF – The IBM® Rational® System Architect® for NAF Add On supports the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) Defense Architecture Framework (NAF). Based upon the Rational System Architect environment’s solution for the Department of Defense Architecture Framework (DoDAF), this adaptation supports additional NAF views and work products.
FEA Interface - The IBM® Rational® System Architect® for FEA Interface helps enable efficient and productive use of the OMB Reference Models in Enterprise Architectures for Federal Government applications. With its Integrated Reference Model Architect (iRMA) feature to graphically represent FEA reference models, the Rational System Architect for FEA Interface can help you build business cases for proposed investments, analyze agency architecture for gaps and overlaps, generate Exhibit 300 tables and produce line-of-sight views.
