Enterprise Knowledge Repository (EKR)

The EKR is an environment, hosted at Picatinny Arsenal and sponsored by OBT, that contains the modeling tool used to develop the ABEA and other architectures, a data warehouse that absorbs this EA information and a set of business intelligence tools that allow reporting, dash-boarding and decision-support in support of portfolio management, system evolution road-mapping, and a multitude of ad-hoc as-needed research efforts.  It is leveraged by OBT, domains, commands, programs and capability functional proponents to generate architecture information and a wide variety of other management and decision-making stakeholders for reporting and analysis.

Integrated Diagnostic

The Integrated Diagnostic is a Tableau-based capability that synthesizes ABEA information into a set of metrics that expose the enterprise value and technical condition of each DBS.  These metrics are portrayed in a quad-based layout, creating clusters of focus:
Quad 1, Enterprise.  Investments that serve major portions of the enterprise, are scalable and have a generally strong and risk-free technical foundation.  Investments in this quad are to be cultivated and are candidates for being long-term enduring capabilities.

Quad 2, Aging.  Investments that serve major portions of the enterprise, but have antiquated, non-scalable, or obsolete technical foundations.  Investments in this quad are to be assessed for long-term viability and either modernized or replaced by Quad 1 Investments.

Quad 3, Limited.  Investments that serve only limited portions of the enterprise, but are technically sound.  Investments in this quad are to be maintained unless a Quad 1 replacement is identified, but are not usually candidates for replacing other Investments

Quad 4, Divest.  Investments that are limited in scope and present technical challenges.  Investments in this quad are to be sunsetted as soon as a replacement can be identified or the need for the system eliminated.

Strategic Management System (SMS)

The SMS is a commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) application that provides the capability to monitor cost, performance, schedule task outcomes, and portray this information in color-coded dashboard format.  SMS allows senior leaders to manage-by-exception, or by drilling-down to the required level of metric detail.  Data is entered only one time (by CSV upload, Web Services, database exchange, or manual entry), and can be used in multiple metric displays or calculations.  SMS has a dynamically updated briefing capability with live data, imbedded email, alerts, and an audit trail to document when and who makes updates.

SMS is also able to portray authoritative financial information, allowing dollars budgeted to be tracked as well as the associated dollars expended.  This capability provides an effective risk mitigation framework in fiscally constrained times.  SMS contains up to ten years of historical data entered by users, with the ability to show trend performance over time; a key capability of the system.

Enterprise Data System Catalog (EDSC)

In order to become a data aware organization, the Army has initiated the development of an Enterprise Data Services Catalog.  The catalog is an interactive electronic database that lists the Army’s Authoritative Data Sources and enables the development, refinement, integration, and maintenance of the Army’s ever-more-critical data assets.
