USTRANSCOM honored for Information Technology
For fifteen years, the Computerworld Honors program has been cataloguing examples of how information technology is being used to benefit society. The collection is archived in 35 countries around the world and is used not only by the academics for whom it was designed, but also by enterprises of all sizes to find ideas to help them address problems and challenges of their own.
Over the course of each year, members of the Chairman’s Committee identify those organizations whose use of information technology has been especially noteworthy. USTRANSCOM’s DTS EA was nominated by the Executive Chairman of EMC, Michael Ruettgers. Thousands of case studies were nominated and screened. USTRANSCOM was selected as one of the 313 regarded as Laureates.
The DTS EA is an IT infrastructure that provides a comprehensive view of the defense transportation mission and community. It provides the defense transportation community with an IT plan that supports the USTRANSCOM objectives of ensuring enhanced global mobility, in-transit visibility, and competitive rates.
Mr. Ray Mosman, chief architect for USTRANSCOM, attended the formal 2003 Medal Presentation Ceremony April 6, in San Francisco, and accepted the medal on behalf of the command.
