The Army Capability Architecture Development and Integration Environment (ArCADIE) provides a robust collaborative and common enterprise environment for architecture related efforts in support of critical institutional processes throughout the U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC) Centers of Excellence and our Army/Joint/Dept of Defense (DOD) partners. CADIE offers a single, federated web-based environment for the development
and discovery of integrated architectures across warfighting functions, and organizations throughout the Army Enterprise. CADIE also provides the ability to integrate, govern and configuration manage architecture projects and data, based on established policies and procedures. CADIE serves as a common Army architecture data strategy for implementing the DOD Architecture Framework. CADIE is more than just a federated database/repository; it is a
critical authoritative enterprise resource for the Army. CADIE is the Army's primary data federation strategy within the Joint Forces architectural community. It is a controlled environment composed of various databases and tools that support all aspects of architecture development supporting doctrine, organization, training, materiel, leadership and education, personnel, and facilities (DOTMLP-F) analyses through the reuse of authoritative data sources; discovery of Army architectures using meta-data discovery; and standard architecture development methodologies using Army-approved development and analysis tools (both commercial and government). CADIE also supports the Army Force Management and Capability Set processes with force design data underpinned by architecture. CADIE leverages emerging portal technologies and web services to provide graphical user interface to the environment, dynamic reporting and visualization tools, and is serving as an architecture authoritative source and knowledge center for the Army.
