USAF legacy systems to undergo study determining fit with EBS system

SANTA CLARA, Calif. Officials at the United States Air Force (USAF) Life Cycle Management Center (AFLCMC) selected Diligent Consulting Inc. and partner EvolveWare for the Legacy Systems Study at Joint Base Randolph Air Force Base (JBSA-Randolph).

The requires a comprehensive analysis of over 40 USAF with a goal to systems to determine “fit” with Oracle’s E-Business Suite (EBS) Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system, or other commercial products certified for use with EBS.

Some of USAF legacy systems that will participate in the study include Case Management System (CMS); Assignment Management System (AMS) Millennium; Base Level Service Delivery Model (BLSDM); Virtual Personnel Services Center (vPSC); Air Force Fitness Management System II (AFFMS II); AFPC Secure and AFPC Secure Maintenance Application; and Automated Records Management System Legacy Conversion (ARMS-LC).

The study will use the Diligent’s Evolution Solution methodology to perform the analysis, as well as recommend the best solutions for disposition of USAF legacy systems. The solution includes a suite of tools, processes, and people to automate the analysis and recommendation process. Other tools that will be used include EvolveWare’s Intellisys Platform to extract the systems meta-data and provide artifacts for analysis.

Under contract, Diligent’s solution will identify the deltas between USAF legacy systems and the Oracle EBS ERP and provide recommendations on how to best implement the functionality within EBS. The implementation will provide a technical roadmap for potential Government consolidation of functionality into, or severability of functionality from the existing/planned Military Personnel Data System (MILPDS)/Air Force Integrated Personnel and Pay System (AFIPPS) programs.
