Developed by Polexis, the XIS platform is a patent-pending technology that augments the capabilities of the military services' DII COE by providing advanced information integration, management, and viewing (visualization) services. As a "common service" within the DII COE, XIS technology enables personnel in the United States' armed forces to pull together information from disparate sources into a consolidated information model supported by all DII COE operating systems (HPUX HPUX Hewlett-Packard Unix , Solaris, and Windows NT). Consequently, users can view and manipulate disparate data without being hampered by protocols and platform-specific limitations, which are common barriers to today's distributed information systems.

It's not every day that you have the opportunity to witness a dream becoming reality. It's a complete validation of XIS as a robust and flexible platform."
