Department of Defense Net-Centric Services Strategy: Strategy for a Net-Centric, Service Oriented DoD Enterprise


Start: 2007-05-04, Publication: 2010-08-20


The DoD NCSS builds upon the DoD Net-Centric Data Strategy’s (May 2003) goals of making data assets visible, accessible, and understandable. This strategy establishes services as the preferred means by which data producers and capability providers can make their data assets and capabilities available across the DoD and beyond. It also establishes services as the preferred means by which consumers can access and use these data assets and capabilities.

The Department of Defense (DoD) Net-Centric Services Strategy (NCSS) reflects the DoD’s recognition that this service oriented approach can result in an explosion of capabilities for our warfighters and decision makers, thereby increasing operational effectiveness. A service oriented approach can accelerate the DoD’s ongoing effort to achieve net-centric operations by ensuring that our warfighters receive the right information, from trusted and accurate sources, when and where it is needed.
