The Army's Distributed Learning System wins 2006 Excellence in Enterprise Integration Award.

NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (Sept. 14, 2006) -- The Association for Enterprise Integration (AFEI) has recognized the Distributed Learning System (DLS), a program of the U.S. Army's Program Executive Office Enterprise Information Systems, as the government winner of the 2006 Excellence in Enterprise Integration Award. Given annually to one government and one industry project team for excellence and innovation in developing and deploying enterprise solutions, the award is intended to recognize achievement and best practices for projects that advance enterprise integration.

DLS demonstrated the best applications of technology and leadership to improve enterprise performance among the 30 government submissions for the 2006 awards program. The DLS nomination stood out because of its far-reaching implications to the entire Army.

DLS is the infrastructure that delivers distributed learning by bringing training to the soldier anywhere, anytime, 24/7. Using state-of-the-art technology, DLS streamlines training processes; automates training management functions; delivers training using electronic means; and enables military and civilian personnel, training developers, training managers, unit commanders, and training NCOs to access training using the Web.

DLS is responsible for fielding multiple training systems simultaneously, with the success of each program directly impacting the Army's ability to meet its training mission. To date, DLS has trained over 600,000 soldiers through one of the five components it supports: Digital Training Facilities, Enterprise Management Center, Army Learning Management System, Army e-Learning, and Deployed Digital Training Campuses. The components that make up DLS bring the Army one step closer to achieving its goal of providing one stop shopping for training information and resources.
