Even the MoD are getting into Web 2.0 :-)

Even the MoD are getting into Web 2.0 :-)

Even the MoD are getting into Web 2.0 :-)

The Internet really is coming of age when the MoD decide to focus on browser based technology :-) "The Ministry of Defence (MoD) is spending £4bn on the Defence Information Infrastructure (DII) project, which once fully installed will provide secure browser access to its information centres, at more that 2,000 sites globally. Two applications are being developed. The Joint Personnel Administration (JPA) and the Joint Asset Management and Engineering Systems (James) are the first test applications to make use of the DII. The ultimate aim is for personnel on the battlefield to have access to the same information as MoD headquarters." You see businesses becoming more web aware and applications being built to offer services to small businesses which were once the domain of enterprises, but when you see this level of technology deployment you just know that the future is web based.

For those who are interested JPA is a heavily customised Oracle HRMS application, with an Oracle Applications Framework frontend for self-service users. Bringing together nearly 300,000 active service personnel, it is thought that JPA is the largest Oracle HRMS implementation in Europe.
