CORE.GOV Sure Sounds Cool

Chris Steins's picture
David Flether's Government and Technology Weblog frequently makes for great reading. Today he discusses CORE.GOV - Component Organization and Registration Environment. uses the CollabNet SourceCast tool for sharing and tracking business and technical components available as part of the Federal Enterprise Architecture.

Now I'm not sure I entirely understand this, since it is heavily buzzworded:

Component!"The Architecture and Infrastructure Committee (AIC) Component Subcommittee has defined a component as a self-contained business process or service with predetermined functionality that may be exposed through a business or technology interface."

But this sounds like a brilliant idea -- a respository for sharing code and applications among Federal agencies. It's hard for even mid-sized development firms to efficiently shared code among projects... You can only imagine how hard it must be for the Federal government.
