Network appliance released

Project: Tactical Information Technology Integration Program

Targeting agency branch offices, Boise, Idaho-based EmergeCore Networks LLC has released a network appliance that serves as a combination application server, switch, firewall, router and wireless access point.

The device can support most operating systems. It offers Web hosting and virtual private network support. The IT-100, which uses a Crusoe processor from Transmeta Corp., Santa Clara, Calif., costs $1,395.

Agency: Navy

Partner: SiteScape Inc., Maynard, Mass.

The Navy integration office provides the ability for many agency offices, integrators and subcontractors to collaborate on large-scale programs.

Obstacle

Once workflow for a project is plotted, it is very difficult to track the progress of the multitude of tasks or to clearly spot the delays. As a result, managers cannot quickly understand how well their projects are doing.

 

 

 

Solution

SiteScape's Enterprise Forum software automates the workflow system for large Navy programs. If a change needs to be made to a particular project aspect, it is automatically routed to the correct people for review.

Payoff

Managers get more timely updates on

the status of their programs and are assured that project tasks are receiving proper attention. The program office is able to support more than 3,000 users with only three technical support personnel and four help-desk support personnel.
