French Military Networks to be Centralized

IOL: To put a halt to the fragmentation of French military information systems, which helped the Conficker virus to thrive, the defense ministry has approved a plan to design a global, inter-service network.

All information technology groups active in the military sector, notably Microsoft and CS, have been waiting for over a year for the program to be launched. Several invitations to tender are to be issued. Named SIA (for System d’Information des Armees), the unified military network is scheduled to become operational around 2016.
